A Spring of Sports

Lynden High School spring sports are in full postseason mode. Some athletes have already earned a spot in their respective 2A state tournament and others are still in various stages of district tournaments. A rundown: 

Baseball: Qualified for state with two back-to-back wins on Saturday in Anacortes on the final day of the district tournament. The Lions will now play in the regional round of state at 1pm on Saturday at Auburn High School vs. North Kitsap as the #5 seed in the tournament. 

Girls Tennis: The doubles team of Adia Newcomb/Kalanie Newcomb qualified for state on Saturday and will play for the district championship today. Singles players Sierra Wyant and Anna Samoukovic and the doubles team of Grace Rice/Mya VanderYacht are still active and searching for a state berth. District play continues today at 2pm at Sehome High School. 

Softball: The Lions begin the district tournament at 4pm on Wednesday in Sedro-Woolley at Janicki Fields as the #3 seed. A top-three tournament finish earns them a trip to state.
