LC boys, Ferndale girls move up one spot in prep polls

With the playoffs less than a week away, things in the Associated Press Washington state Prep Basketball Polls have begun to sort themselves out, as not much has changed since last week’s polls.

The biggest Whatcom County mover was Lynden Christian’s boys’ basketball team and Ferndale’s girls’ basketball team.

The Lyncs’ boys moved from No. 8 to No. 7 in this week’s Class 1A poll, which was released on Wednesday, Feb. 4. LC (12-7, 6-5 NWC) went 2-1 since the last poll with wins over Blaine and Nooksack Valley before losing to Ferndale on Tuesday, Feb. 3.

Ferndale (17-2, 9-2) also went from No. 8 to No. 7 in the girls’ 3A poll after splitting games against Lynden and Lynden Christian.

While Ferndale and LC were the only two risers in this week’s polls, there were some fallers, both of which came from Lynden.

Lynden’s boys fell from No. 3 to No. 4 in the 2A poll. The Lions (14-4, 8-2) beat Ferndale but lost by two points to Sehome in the past week.

Lynden’s girls went from No. 6 to No. 8 in the 2A rankings, after the Lions lost to Ferndale last Friday.

Remaining atop their respective polls were Lummi’s boys, who retained the Class 1B top spot for the third consecutive week, and Lynden Christian’s girls.

The Lyncs (16-3, 11-0) received eight of the 12 first-place votes after topping Blaine, Nooksack Valley and Ferndale by 18 or more points in the past week.

Meridian’s boys’ also remained ranked No. 10 in the 1A poll while Nooksack Valley’s girls’ fell out of the rankings in the 1A rankings.
