In one fell swoop, every Whatcom County boys’ soccer team’s season was over. It all happened within the course of a couple hours and was incredibly shocking. To see incredibly talented Sehome and Squalicum fall back-to-back and then hear that scrappy Lynden Christian was eliminated was jaw-dropping for me.
Given the track and field talent existing throughout Whatcom County, this spring is sure to produce some state champions. Following some head-to-head meets Thursday, May 7, the postseason will get underway next weekend.
As every other sport starts its playoffs in the next week (or has already started), softball’s regular season is still roaring strong. May 19 and May 21 are the starting days for the district playoffs. With about three weeks to go, here’s some rankings:
In light of the stormy weather this week that’s rained out its fair share of games, I figured it’d be a perfect time to see where the softball teams are at as the postseason approaches. Here’s this version of the softball power rankings:
We are nearly at the halfway point of prep baseball’s conference play. Here’s a look at how we feel the Northwest Conference clubs stack up in the latest installment of our prep baseball power rankings.
The track and field season is nearly three weeks in. Here is a look at the boys’ top three times or marks in the Northwest Conference thus far. Tomorrow, we’ll take a look at where the girls’ top athletes stand.
The playoffs are in full swing now and the Class 2A playoffs start Saturday, Feb. 14. Four teams advance to the regional round of state from the double-elimination tournament. The Northwest District is one of the toughest in the state, featuring three top-10 teams.
The last week of the regular season has all but past and the Northwest Conference has almost all of its playoff teams decided. The Class 1A battle for the two spots may come down to a mini-playoff on Saturday unless Nooksack Valley wins Friday night. It’s been a great season and now teams are ready for the postseason. Here is the final power rankings of the season:
Wow, it has been a battle for the Northwest Conference title. Lynden Christian has been able to hold on to the top spot, parrying an effort from Lynden. The Lyncs get Ferndale on Tuesday, in what will likely decide the NWC title — that is unless Lynden knocks off Ferndale on Friday, Jan. 30, which is a real possibility. Meanwhile, the 1A playoff picture continues to be a mess. Nooksack Valley and Meridian both sit at 4-5 while Mount Baker sits at 3-5. Meridian and Mount Baker meet Saturday in a huge game. The NWC has shown no night is easy in this conference.
