Coach: Scott Sahagian
Last year: Finished 10th in the Northwest Conference. Did not qualify any golfers for state.
Players to watch: Emily Ming (jr.), Emily Crabtree (jr.), Ashlyn Morgan (jr.)
Outlook: Sahagian said he is looking for big things from Ming this year after a strong year last spring. "I think she's rubbed off on Ashlyn, who is a natural athlete, and Emily, who has a strong desire to do better," Sahagian said in a phone interview. "Together, that is a strong combination of kids." Considering they're all juniors, they should be back for another year. But the problem is the Lions have a lot of inexperienced players behind them, and that likely will make it difficult to compete early in the conference season. But by the time the postseason rolls around, look for Lynden to be quite competitive. "Our dream is to get all three through (to the district tournament)," Sahagian said. "The good thing about everybody on this team is they're all workers, and they will do anything they need to get there."
