The Northwest Conference football season opens on Friday, Sept. 6, when Squalicum will travel to Kingston, Sehome will host Nooksack Valley, Meridian will be at Burlington-Edison, Blaine will play at Ferndale and Lynden Christian will host Omak. In addition to Lynden's game against King's, Mount Baker will play Bellingham on Sept. 7.
NWC TICKET PRICES
For the first time in eight year, the Northwest Conference is increasing ticket prices because of increased expenses for equipment, uniforms, officials, transportation and other costs, according to a NWC news release earlier this summer.
Admission to regular-season events will now cost $6 for adults, $3 for students with ASB card and $3 for senior citizens age 62 and older.
Ticket prices are set by the Northwest Conference, and all schools will abide by the agreement. Ticket prices for district and state postseason competition are set by the district and the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association and may be different from regular-season prices.
