PREP GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Anacortes preview


Coach: Ken Welk

Last season: 25-3 (13-0 NWC) eliminated in the Class 2A state tournament consolation round

Players to watch: Brittany Janz (Sr., G), Madison Mackenzie, (Sr., P), Hannah Holtgeerts, (So., P)

Outlook: Anacortes completed the NWC regular season without a loss, but struggled at the state tourna-ment, finishing without a trophy despite having one of the best re-cords in Class 2A. Getting some hardware probably won’t be an issue this season. The Seahawks return four starters from last season includ-ing the conference’s most valuable player in Janz. They are taller than in years past and should be hungry after last season. Repeating as the NWC champs is very possible.
