Would the Lynden Christian girls stay perfect entering the new year?

In Lynden Christian’s final test before the new year, the host Lions took it to Snohomish and earned a 52-37 non-league win Saturday.

Snohomish tried taking away some of Lynden Christian’s guards by face guarding them, but the Lions did a good job of sharing the ball. Grace Sterk led the way with 11 points, and Riley Dykstra and Riley VanHulzen both added 10 points.

“We’ve had some good tests over winter break and this was another one,” Lynden Christian coach Brady Bomber said. “We made them pay for playing junk defense against us.”
