Coach: David Bobillot
Last year: Finished fourth in the Northwest Conference standings. Finished fourth at the 2A Northwest District Tournament and sent one golfer to state.
Players to watch: Taylor Paul (jr.), Peter Kolodychuk (sr.), Daniel Kim (sr.), Cody Roth (so.), EJ Troutman (sr.), Rees Kruhlak (so.)
Outlook: The Red Raiders return their lone state participant from last year in Paul, who finished 24th. But he's not all that's back, as Bellingham figures among the three front-runners for the conference crown. "We're actually fairly deep compared to previous years," Bobillot said in a phone interview. "We have two other guys on the JV that could move up. We're looking pretty solid." With the new sub-district qualifying format this year, playing well at the right time of the year is extremely important, but Bellingham should be able to compete. "We have the potential to be near the top (at state)," Bobillot said. "It all depends how far they come along in the next month and a half."
