King added t All-Whatcom County team


An error in omission led to Squalicum freshman boys' swimmer Rowan King being left off the All-Whatcom County boys' swimming team.

King, who finished fourth at the Class 2A state championships in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1 minute, 3.22 seconds, was a key factor in helping Squalicum finish seventh at the state meet, and he has since been added to the list. The freshman also excelled in the 200 individual medley, finishing eighth in state with a time of 2:06.78.

His emergence in the pool for coach Randy Elsner helped lead the Storm to a 5-1 Northwest Conference record, and to within one point of potentially topping Sehome for the league crown.


Nooksack Valley standout pitcher Kayla Struiksma has signed her national letter of intent to play softball at Mayville State University next season in North Dakota.

Struiksma has proven to be one of the premier pitchers in the Northwest Conference over the past several seasons for coach Tom Harmon, accumulating 23 wins in the circle in her career at Nooksack Valley thus far. In that stretch, the Pioneers have made it to the state tournament in each of her first three seasons.
