Youth Sports

  • In a span of five minutes, Nikolaevsk basketball fans were dealt a loss and a victory Wednesday afternoon at the Sullivan Arena in Anchorage.

    On one court, there was the Nikolaevsk boys team falling short in a 62-51 loss to the King Cove T-Jacks that determined the Class 1A boys consolation champion.

    On the court next to it, separated only by a large, black curtain, there was the Nikolaevsk girls team cruising to a 45-26 win over conference rival Cook Inlet Academy to claim the Class 1A girls consolation crown.

  • A spring sun was snow melting in the Homer 

    area this weekend. Inside the Kevin Bell Arena, however, the temperatures were a bit cooler, but the action was hot as the Mite D Round-Up brought an end to the hockey season for the six- to eight-year-old athletes on the ice.

  • The public is invited to Kachemak Bay Running Club’s annual membership meeting and election of officers at Beluga Lake Lodge, 5:30-8 p.m. Friday.

  • The Seldovia Otters boys team worked their way through the Class 1A tournament to grab third-place honors. 

    “It’s big,” said Seldovia coach Mark Janes. “We were third going into our region (tournament) so no one really expected a lot from us, and last year we were fifth. So they really, really improved.”

    The previous best finish for a Seldovia squad was fifth place in the 2008 tournament at the 2A level.

  • The Homer Pee Wee Hockey team spent the 2013-2014 season proving the meaning of the team’s motto: 111 percent 100 percent of the time because 110 percent is not enough. The team — front row from left: Lee Lowe, Ethan Pitzman, Hunter Warren, Isaiah Nevak, Tucker Weston; middle row left to right: Karl Wickstrom, Liam Colman, J.J.
