The Kodiak High School Bears girls teams were challenged by the Kenai Kardinals over the weekend, but swept the Central Peninsula team in Northern Lights Conference action. In two defensive struggles, Kodiak won 28-22 on Friday and then 33-28 on Saturday. The Bears are 2-0 in the NLC and 4-1 overall this season.
The Kodiak boys finished up the ACS tournament in Anchorage dropping the fourth-place game to the Kotzebue Huskies 53-39 on Saturday. Jemuel Mangalus and Max Mutch with 10 apiece had more than half of the Bears’ points. Host ACS won the tournament, defeating a tired Barrow, which had been on a week-long road trip, playing a game a day.
