  • Homer’s Diva hockey took three teams to the 13th Annual Fools on Ice Tournament in Anchorage last weekend and took first in the intermediate division, second in the advanced beginner division, and third in the novice division. The teams were coached by Buck Laukitis, Dean Kildaw, Steve Nevak and Chris Owens.

    Goalies Julie Hinkle and Lydia Brown had shut-out games and goalie Michelle Hatton had an all-tournament shut-out record.

  • In a celebration of spring, the Kachemak Nordic Ski Club’s Sea to Ski Triathalon rang in the warm weather with a wet run, a muddy bike ride and a slushy ski on Sunday.

    “The weather was great for this race. The trail slowed down at the end because of the new snow, but overall it was great,” said race coordinator Mike Byerly.

  • The End of the Road Broomball tournament was a huge success March 29-30. The Bethel Fighting Pikes, Bethel Beavers and Whitehorse Capital Towing were uncannily matched with Homer Broomballers, Beluga Lake Bombers and Alice’s Scoundrels. There was an unprecedented number of tied games decided in overtime or shootouts.
