Sports and Outdoors Highlights

Adult Sports

  • The Homer Ice Racing Association is gearing up for its fifth race of the season on Sunday. Races start at noon on Beluga Lake and spectators are welcome. There is no charge.

    One of the highlights of the season has been the addition of kids' racing.

    "This last Sunday we had five kids racing," writes Becky Ravin, scorekeeper for the association. "They have such a good time and it's a great experience for them. Sometimes one or more doesn't finish the race because they get the car stuck on the berm but they are always smiling when they get out of the car."

    In the final week of Broomball League play, Alice’s Scoundrels and the Beluga Lake Bombers tied for the top score with two goals apiece against each other and one goal apiece against the Down East Grayskulls, who finished in last place.

    MVP awards for the week went to Liz Villarreal of the Scoundrels, Rudy Multz of the Bombers and Theresa Tilter and Matt Creamer of the Grayskulls.

  • The annual Fun Run held by Snomads lived up to its name Saturday, with more than 100 adults participating and another 30 youngsters joining the fun, said Snomads President Steve Parizek.

    "We even had Toras Fisk out there," said Parizek of the 90-year-old charter member of the snowmachine club. "And we had some people from Bolivia, Germany and Mexico, and Caribou Hills Cabin Hoppers President Rick Northey and his entourage from the central peninsula."

  • Alice's wins, ties in Broomball

    This week in Broomball, Alice's Scoundrels scored four goals against the Beluga Lake Bombers and one against the Down East Grayskulls. Grayskulls scored one each against the Bombers and the Scoundrels. The Bombers scored three against the Grayskulls and one against Alice's.

    This week's most valuable players are Jason Herreman of the Scoundrels, Chris Gordon of the Bombers and Jesse Classen of the Grayskulls.

    Ice Rink holds fundraiser

  • The Homer Cycling Club and fat-bikers from around the state, and even the Lower 48, are gearing up for the second annual Big Fat Bike Festival.
    After a successful first run last year, the Homer Cycling Club is excited to host a winter 2013 festival that will be bigger, fatter, and "Homer-er."

Youth Sports

  • Thunderous cheers and loud foot-stomping from the crowd, rousing music played by the Homer High band directed by Amy Johnson and an energetic team of Mariner cheerleaders were second only to the action in the Homer High School Alice Witte Gymnasium Friday night as the Mariner girls and boys basketball teams took on the Seward Seahawks.

  • If you felt the earth shaking Tuesday night, it wasn’t an earthquake. It was an exciting, overtime game of Mariner hockey at the Kevin Bell Arena.

    Following on the heels of Saturday’s 1-0 shutout of the SoHi Stars, the Mariners invited the Kenai Kardinals to Homer for a game. And what a game it was. 

  • As the Mariner hockey season nears its conclusion and the team looks toward the regional tournament at the Kevin Bell Arena Feb. 6-8, Hannah Baird and Maggie LaRue are excited to join their teammates in competing for a regional championship banner. 

  • Tell a skier it’s winter and he or she will, well, ski. No matter the rain or ice.

    Friday, the Homer High School Mariner cross country team did just that, heading north for the Kenai Klassic.

    “I was proud of all of our kids for going out and skiing hard despite the bad weather and snow conditions,” said Head Coach Eric Groth. “The trails were pretty sloppy and punchy and kick waxing was tricky.”

  • Wrestlers from Chapman, Homer, Ninilchik, Seldovia and Voznesenka gathered at Homer Middle School Friday for the Husky Open. With 50-60 participants, it was “a strong little tournament,” said Coach Dan Rios.
