This year, the Seward Tsunami Swim Club’s annual Swim-a-Thon kicked off on February 24th. Swimmers have the month of March to gather pledges for their two hour swim on Friday, the 28th. This is the club’s sole fundraiser with donations pledged to young athletes who earn them by swimming for two hours straight. By the time their two hours are over, they could have swum up to 200 lengths of the pool or 5000 yards or 2.8 miles and burned over 500 calories and have been kept afloat by orange wedges, parents’ cheers, community financial support, and the promise of […]

By Marc Swanson Well…. At first it seemed to be a rewrite from Boroughs the week prior. The mighty Seahawk skiers left Seward in the biggest snow storm of the year (not really saying much now is it?) to arrive in Soldotna….bare roads, light skiff of new snow, and potentially marginal ski conditions. That said, never underestimate the powers and tenacity of the groomers. The Soldotna groomers must’ve been working / reworking the ice and trucking snow in from Georgia to create a course that was, considering everything, excellent and fast. Five Seahawks competed at Regions: Brooke Estes, Logan Smith, […]Read more ›
By Marc Swanson – Even within the spectrum of comic tragedies, Shakespeare himself may not have had the guts to draft this one. It’s been a great season for the Seahawks ski team minus one rather critical element….yeah, the white stuff. Since the season started the first of November we’ve been able to squeeze off perhaps a dozen practices on snow. This has meant mixing it up with dryland, running, bounding up the Jeep Trail and, when possible, ice skating. Meets have been far and few between. Our last meet was the oatmeal slush 3 weeks ago. Since then meets […]Read more ›

By Marc Swanson – Well, as seems to be the general rule for the Seahawks, the past Nordic ski race in Kenai was an unforgettable moment that didn’t fail to entertain. We traveled by golden chariot to the Kenai meet last Friday – during the driving rain and wind storm—not exactly prime ski conditions. Our driver and number one team cheerleader Duane Chase got us there safe and ahead of the avalanche guns. There were only five skiers that could make this race—Brooke Estes, Jerry Swanson, Nick Zweifel, Dylan Gillespie, and Hunter Kratz. It was to be a classic race—problematic […]Read more ›

About 170 Seward sports nuts of all ages ran through town this morning for the first ever Seward Spirit Scamper to raise money for high school sports. Along the way they were sprayed with a dusty green and yellow harmless paint, making what used to be the annual Hawkwalk, a color-run. At the end of the race party music blared as the happy runners rolled around in the paint, sprayed one another, and took photos. SHS Athletic Director Sami King, who thought up the new event to replace the Hawk Walk tradition, said everyone had a great time. SHS Principal Trevan […]Read more ›
By Heidi Zemach for SCN In an attempt to re-invigorate school spirit and sports fundraising, Sami King, the Seward High School Athletics Director has decided to adopt a cool new twist on an old tradition. This year’s Hawk Walk will be a Color Run, and its new name is the “Seahawk Spirit Scamper.” If you haven’t yet heard of the Color Run—it’s a celebratory race event where thousands of participants run to celebrate health and fitness, and to raise money for various charities. Participants get extremely happy passing through sprays of cornstarch-based paint colors. They end up totally covered in […]Read more ›

Students and the general public will only be able to enter Seward High School through its west or main entrance due to a new district-wide policy aimed at making school facilities more secure. The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District gave all 44 school administrators the directive in early August to create only one point of entry to their schools, said SHS Principal Trevan Walker. The change followed concerted discussion by administrators and staff last year about their school’s safety following the shooting of students at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The state legislature also funded additional school security. The directive is […]Read more ›
