Squalicum High School to host Class 2A volleyball tournament


Squalicum High School will host the Class 2A Bi-District volleyball tournament on Wednesday, Nov. 6, and Saturday, Nov. 9. Mount Lake Terrace High School was initially planned to to host the volleyball tournament, but a late scheduling conflict made it so the tournament needed to be held somewhere else on the final day of play.

Matches will begin at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, and noon on Saturday.


Lynden's football team has been able to extend its winning streak the past few weeks in spite of battling adversity due to injuries.

Lions running back Trent Postma, on the offensive and defensive side of the ball, has spearheaded Lynden's effort in overcoming setbacks.

It started two weeks ago against Burlington-Edison when Postma made a solo tackle on the opening kickoff, and then intercepted the ball the next play on defense before running for a touchdown two plays later. He also took the second half opening kickoff back 91 yards for a TD.

Postma scored Lynden's first touchdown the next week against Ferndale and was integral in helping the Lions beat their fiercest Whatcom County rival 14-6.

Finally against Squalicum last Friday, Nov. 1, Postma broke the game open with a 75-yard touchdown run late in the first half.

"Trent is a beast," Lynden defensive coordinator Blake VanDalen wrote in an email. "We see it every day in practice, and it was nice to see him put on a show in the game as well. He never takes a play off and never gives less than 100 percent. Trent loves to hit and trust me, in practice, everyone knows where he is at all times."
