  • Ski trail or fire station?

Youth Sports

  • For the 38th year, Al Aska Shriners sponsored the annual North-South Classic, an opportunity for senior football athletes from around the state to join forces in one last football game of the season. Representing the Mariners were Sheldon Hutt, Patrick Rainwater, Collin MacCampbell, Connor Seay and Ben Knisely, with Ian Lowe assisting Mariner Head Coach Josh Fraley with coaching duties.

    Hutt was named MVP of the Nov. 1 game, “so that’s pretty awesome,” said Fraley. “He played really, really well.”

  • The Homer High School wrestling team headed north to Kotzebue for the Bush Brawl last week.

    After being caught by Barrow’s Jonathan Nelson on Thursday night, Mariner Jared Brant avenged the loss, finishing first at 120 pounds. Joining him as a Bush Brawl champion was Timmy Woo, 138. Woo went 5-0 over the weekend and defeated Mathew Norton of Galena in the final 19-5. 

  • The Peninsula Ice Challenge, held at the Soldotna Regional Sports Center last week, saw hockey action between the SoHi Stars, Kenai Kardinals, Eagle River Wolves and the Homer Mariners. In Saturday’s championship battle between the Wolves and the Mariners, the Wolves prevailed 4-2.

  • For the first time in 11 years, the Homer Mariners volleyball team is headed to State competition. The team secured its place by taking first at Regions on Saturday. 

  • The Mariners’ volleyball season of regular play came to a close last weekend, but with the varsity team going into regions competition this weekend, it was as much about what’s ahead as it was the overall season. Homer honored their seniors on Thursday, but ended the night with a loss to Grace Christian School. The Mariners came back on Friday to win a three-game sweep against Houston.
