Youth Sports

  • 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.
