Area basketball teams to compete in upcoming Mount Baker shootout


Mount Baker High School is hosting the 23rd Annual Mount Baker Shootout basketball tournament Friday-Sunday, July 12-14, at Mount Baker's high school and junior high.

The tournament is split into two divisions - Class 2A/3A and 1A/B - with 24 teams. Area teams competing in 2A/3A are Bellingham, Ferndale, Sehome, Lynden, Anacortes and Burlington-Edison. Mount Baker, Lummi, Nooksack Valley, Lynden Christian and Blaine will play in the 1A/B division. Lynden and Meridian won their respective divisions last year.

"It's just an opportunity for (teams) to get five or six games in as a team," Mountaineers basketball coach Rob Gray said in a phone interview, "and hopefully the teams get better from the experience."
