Another week is in the books and the biggest note from this week is that Mount Baker’s Emily Yost is really good. She leads all scorers in the Northwest Conference, averaging more than 27 points per game. The Mountaineers are on a five-game win streak because of it. That, of course, is aided by Emily Brandland’s 18.9 points per game. Keep an eye on Baker this season.
1. Lynden Christian (6-0; Last week’s ranking: 1) - The Lyncs picked up a couple big wins over Bellingham and Squalicum and still haven’t allowed more than 40 points in a game this season.
2. Ferndale (5-1; Last week: 2) - The Golden Eagles lost a close one to Anacortes, falling victim to a poor shooting night. The Golden Eagles’ are still a strong team, bolstered by Linsey Honeycutt’s 22 points per game.
