LC boys take first NWC loss at Anacortes


Lynden Christian boys' basketball hung with Anacortes but came up just short in a 65-59 Northwest Conference loss on Monday, Jan. 13, at Anacortes. The Lyncs were led by Grant Wolffis' 15 points.

"I was really proud of our effort, they came after us really hard and pressed the entire game," Lynden Christian coach Roger De Boer said in a phone interview. "We performed really well. A couple more plays and we'd be there."

Zach Roetcisoender added 12 points and seven of the Lyncs' 36 rebounds. Jake Poag hit all four of Lynden Christian's 3-pointers for his 12 points.

Andrew Medalia led the Seahawks in handing LC its first league loss with 21 points, nine rebounds and five assists, all team highs. Anacortes improves to 8-3 overall and 3-1 in NWC play, while Lynden Christian falls to 8-4 overall and 4-1 in the conference.
