PREP GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Lynden preview

LYNDEN LIONS

Coach: Rob Adams

Last season: 13-16, (7-6 NWC), placed eighth at the Class 2A state tournament

Players to watch: Brandi Benner, (Jr., G), Jill Toronchuk, (Jr., F), Averyl Shindruk (Jr., F), Hannah Swanson (Jr., G)

Outlook: Rob Adams takes over Lynden this season and promises a faster tempo for a team that took home its first state trophy since 1991. With the talent the Lions have com-ing back that could be a scary com-bination. Benner is a good shooter capable of scoring 20 points on any given night, while Toronchuk and Shindruk are very athletic forwards. Lynden has a combination of size and speed that few teams can boast. This could be the season they be-come a true state title contender.
