Conference leading goal scorer Parris out rest of season

The Lynden boys’ soccer team has lost forward Nicolas Parris for the rest of the season.

Parris sat out of the Lions’ 2-1 win against Burlington-Edison on Tuesday, April 28, and will miss the team’s remaining two regular-season games.

“We found out Nic is done for the year for us,” Lynden coach Drew Smiley said in a phone interview. “He has a knee problem.”

Parris is currently leading the league with 14 goals, five assists and 33 points.

Lynden sits three points behind Sehome for the final berth into the Class 2A Northwest District Tournament.

The Squalicum baseball team landed at No. 9 in the latest washingtonbaseballpoll.com Class 2A rankings. Anacortes was ranked No. 5.

Snohomish (4A), Auburn Mountainview (3A), Selah (2A) and Klahowya (1A) were ranked No. 1 in their respective classifications.

Schilder signs with Whatcom CC

Bellingham High 7-footer Logan Shilder has signed a National Letter of Intent to play basketball for Whatcom Community College next winter.

Schilder, who led Bellingham with 11.5 points per game last season, helped the Red Raiders (12-8, 7-5 NWC) to seventh-place finish in the Northwest Conference.

Schilder didn’t play his junior season after suffering season-ending injury to start the year.

The center joins a WCC recruiting class that includes Eisenhower’s Conner Kelley and Kentridge’s Deon Thomas.

Perry sings NLI with Trinity Western

Nooksack Valley girls’ basketball guard Mariah Perry has signed a National Letter of Intent to play for Trinity Western University of British Columbia next season.

Perry, a 5-foot-6 guard, led the Pioneers last season with 10.5 points per game and was a first-team All-Northwest Conference selection. She guided Nooksack Valley (17-9, 5-7 NWC) to the regional round of the Class 1A State Tournament, where the Pioneers fell to Granger.

“Mariah led her team to the Washington state championships and has a point-guard mentality to its truest form,” TWU coach Cheryl Jean-Paul said in a press release. “She is a vocal leader, attacks when she needs to, doesn’t back down from adversity, looks to create for her teammates, doesn’t hesitate to knock down an open outside shot and brings things together when she senses momentum shifting.”

Perry joins a TWU recruiting class that includes three other players, all Canadians.
