Lynden girls handle Sehome


Lynden's girls' basketball team got back on the winning track with a 47-13 win over Sehome in a Northwest Conference matchup Tuesday, Jan. 28, at Lynden High School. The Lions were led by Stephanie Somers' double-double of 13 points and 13 rebounds, both team highs.

"We tend to go as (Somers) goes," Lynden coach Rob Adams said in a phone interview. "I thought it was going to be interesting after losing two in a row to see how they played, and I was happy with how they played tonight."

Adams said Amanda Warner and Jasmyne Neria played "fantastic" at point guard for the Lions, as they had five and three points, respectively. Neria led the Lions in assists with four.

Maddy Bryan was Sehome's top scorer with five points.

"Credit to their team and coaching staff, they were playing as hard at the end of the game as they did at the beginning," Adams said. "They represented Sehome with a lot of class."

Lynden looks for another win at 7:15 p.m. Friday, Jan. 31, when the Lions host Blaine. Sehome will try to pick up its first win at 7:15 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 30, when the Mariners host Nooksack Valley.
