Northwest Conference Power Rankings

1. Ferndale: Lauren Maley and the Golden Eagles return plenty of experience from last year’s historic team.

2. Burlington-Edison: The strong batch of newcomers burst onto the scene last year and should have success again.

3. Lynden: Only two starters depart the Lions and a strong senior class could have the Lions back at state.

4. Mount Baker: Aleks Toivola should lead the Mountaineers to another strong season.

5. Anacortes: Most of this state will be returning and the Seahawks will continue to be competitive.

6. Blaine: Everything might be clicking for the Borderites under coach Alisa Burk.

7. Sehome: A pair of great hitters to go along with a great pitcher? Sounds like a recipe for success.

8. Sedro-Woolley: After a great run, the Cubs started to slip last year and now graduate six seniors.

9. Nooksack Valley: A strong corps of players return to a state squad and the Pioneers could surprise.

10. Lynden Christian: The Lyncs are in a bit of a rebuild but have some talent still left on the squad.

11. Meridian: Another year, another coach. This year’s Trojans have plenty of reason to be hopeful.

12. Bellingham: Some strong young guns to go with some savvy vets and the Red Raiders look improved.

13. Squalicum: The goal for the Storm this season is just to win a game.
