Bajema hits hot streak, leads Lyncs past Sedro-Woolley


Kara Bajema had the hot hand for Lynden Christian's girls' basketball team, tallying 30 points as the Lyncs topped Sedro-Woolley 73-38 in a Northwest Conference game on Monday, Jan. 27, at Sedro-Woolley.

Bajema's points came in just 19 minutes of playing time, as she shot 13 for 18 from the floor over that period.

"She shot the ball real well from the perimeter," Lynden Christian coach Curt De Haan said in a phone interview, referencing Bajema's four 3-pointers. "We were able to force quite a few turnovers."

The Lyncs' defense caused 25 Sedro-Woolley turnovers and they grabbed 40 rebounds to the Cubs' 26. Sara Dougan led Lynden Christian with eight rebounds.

Lynden Christian's next game is at 2:15 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 29, at home against Friday Harbor.
