PREP BOYS' BASKETBALL: Anacortes preview

ANACORTES SEAHAWKS

Coach: Brett Senff

Last year: 18-11 (7-6 NWC), fin-ished seventh at Class 2A state tour-nament.

Players to watch: Jordan Freeman (Sr., G/F), Austin Anderson (Sr., F), Mackenzie Larkin (Jr., F/C)

Outlook: The Seahawks lost a lot from last year, as their top five scor-ers are not back. Only four players on this year’s roster have any varsity experience, and one of them played in only one game. Anderson is the top returning scorer with his 4.3 points per game in 17 games. Larkin played in 20 games, but averaged only 2.0 points, while Freeman averged 1.5 points in 13 games. At 6-foot-4, Larkin will likely be the team’s top threat in the post. With only four seniors on the roster this year, Anacortes should gain some valuable experience for the seven juniors on the roster in hopes of making a run next year. And consid-ering they are not the only Northwest Conference team that lost a lot from last year, they definitely will be in the mix to grab one of the last four spots into the Class 2A Northwest District Tournament.
