I come to Alaska by way of CTV in Largo, Maryland, a Washington D.C. suburb. It was truly an honor when KTVA offered me the chance to become its sports director and more importantly, part of the team.

    Alaska Aces lose 7th time in 8 tries

    by Dave Goldman on Nov 18, 7:27

    Sometimes a change in scenery can help break a team’s bad momentum. Sometimes it doesn’t. Right now, the Alaska Aces are in a rut. This isn’t just a rut where your friend can help you push your car out with some easy momentum. They need a bulldozer to get out of this thing. The latest […]

    No change in strokes, but the state swim meet venue will be different

    by Dave Goldman on Nov 16, 23:15

    There may not be many eight lane pools in Alaska, but Bartlett High School’s isn’t the only one. That’s why the next year’s high school swimming and diving state championships are moving out—at least temporarily. In an attempt to spread the wealth, officials are changing the venue. Next year’s competition will move from Anchorage to Juneau’s Dimond Aquatic […]

    by Dave Goldman on Nov 12, 9:23

    The gridiron in Alaska is growing. For seven years, Alaska Football League owner Abe Hernandez has toiled and built. His efforts are paying off. A league that began in 2008 with only three teams will be six next season with Eagle River’s entrance. And Hernandez is thinking bigger and bolder. “Logistically, it would probably be […]

    by Dave Goldman on Nov 10, 21:50

    After years of tradition, Mount Marathon is changing with the times – literally. Sure, we don’t know if this will be beneficial in the end. But we’ll never know unless we try it.

    by Dave Goldman on Nov 10, 16:13

    The schedule to run 3,022 feet up and down a mountain just changed. And one of the biggest events in the state of Alaska is getting a tune-up. Seward’s Mount Marathon Race, the signature Fourth of July event, has tweaked its schedule. The attendance numbers will be down too. While the kids will continue to start off the festivities at 9 a.m., an […]

    Bethel wrestlers deal with school fire, find a way onto the mat

    by Dave Goldman on Nov 09, 21:58

    It’s tough enough to be a high school wrestler. There’s making weight, the self-discipline of training every day and the physical punishment. And it’s nothing compared to what the wrestlers from Bethel’s Kilbuck school have endured. Last week’s fire at the school took everything. So when the team was scheduled to wrestle this past weekend at Anchorage Christian School, they were at a loss. […]

    Home, sweet home: Alaska Airlines Center very hospitable to UAA Volleyball team, fans

    by Dave Goldman on Nov 06, 22:50

    There’s nothing fair about the weather in Alaska. You can say the same about the fans. The University of Alaska Anchorage volleyball team can attest to that. The nation’s 11th ranked team is enjoying a terrific season and equally strong support. Currently the Seawolves average more than 1,200 fans at each home match— the most in Division II Volleyball. “It’s […]

    Only in the movies does it happen, but it’s possible Garet Hunt will go from super villain to superhero — and quickly. Alaska Aces fans will decide. The former Stockton Thunder forward signed with the Aces early Wednesday, was on the ice for the morning skate and in uniform wearing number 24 as the Aces faced off against […]

    Forever young: Anchorage runner readies for New York

    by Dave Goldman on Oct 29, 22:52

    Anchorage? Check. Boston. Got it. New York, you’re next. Anchorage runner Jeff Young has been running since as far back as he can remember. But it wasn’t until recently that he began competing in marathons. It’s safe to say he has the hang of them. Last year in Alaska, he placed fourth in the Mayor’s Marathon. Then in […]

    McGill leaves hole to fill as UAA opens season in California

    by Dave Goldman on Oct 28, 22:13

    It’s the not the start to the season University of Alaska Anchorage head coach Rusty Osborne envisioned. Before the Seawolves even step on the court, they’re without their leading returning-scorer Brian McGill. He’ll miss at least the first semester due to academic ineligibility. That’s nearly 14 points per game and senior leadership that need to be replaced. […]

    They’re rivals on the court but last night they were teammates against a common opponent — breast cancer.

Following a standard compliance review, it was discovered that McGill has not made “progress toward degree” in the past two semesters. McGill, a physical […]

    A good rule is knowing them

    by Dave Goldman on Oct 27, 8:23

    People love talking basketball. Rules, not so much. But before every season, a few key changes are instituted by the NCAA. They will directly affect the sport and the teams playing. One such notable difference is the dispersal of time. The women’s game will still be 40 minutes in length, but instead of two halves, […]

    West High School Eagles soar to Alaska football supremacy

    by Dave Goldman on Oct 23, 23:10

    In the end, the visitors were right at home. Despite entering the Alaska School Activities Association First National Bowl large-school championship as the lower seed, the West High Eagles looked very comfortable at their home field in a 41-0 win over Chugiak. In doing so, West captured its second state title in three years and […]

    West High Eagles are visitors in their own stadium

    by Dave Goldman on Oct 23, 7:35

    Technically, West is the underdog, right? The Eagles are the lower seed and already fell to Chugiak once this season. Underdog, right? Depends on who you ask. Neither West nor Chugiak is a heavy favorite in Friday’s Alaska SAA First National Bowl for the large schools. But keep this mind. The Eagles will play the game at their home stadium. It stems from […]

    Mustangs prepared to move out of Cook Inlet Conference

    by Dave Goldman on Oct 20, 23:09

    Change is a part of sports — even at the high school level. Chugiak football, in the midst of a quest for its first state title since 1996, knows. Next season, the Mustangs will leave the Cook Inlet Conference and join the Railbelt as its fifth team, leaving the CIC with seven. Both Chugiak and the Alaska School Activities Association […]

    Chugiak looks to keep the good times rolling

    by Dave Goldman on Oct 19, 23:37

    All these Mustangs need is one more wild ride. Go back 19 years: That’s the last time the Mustangs claimed a state title. Now, they’re 48 minutes away. “It really is hard to beat a team twice,” said senior linebacker Noah Harris. “We just have to game plan and execute that game plan to our best ability.” […]
