Girls Soccer

The girls pulled off an amazing win Saturday to clinch a spot in the 1a/2b state tournament. Senior and Captain Echo Wood had a great goal in the final minutes to finish off a 2-1 win against Lutheran.

The girls will play sometime next week but the date is to be decided. This is the second year in a row that the girls are heading to state.

Boys Soccer

The boys also secured a spot in the state tournament this year. The boys played Lynden Christian and dominated with a 5-0 win. This is the second time in a row that the boys are going to state, last year they played great and won third place. The boys will play Mount Vernon Christian next weekend and try to keep their great momentum heading into the state tournament.

Volleyball

The volleyball team will also be making a trip to the state tournament this year. The girls were able to hold on and beat Morton White Pass with a 3-1 win. This is the first time since 1997 that the volleyball team has made it to the state tournament.

Football

The boys almost pulled it together with a win against Sedro Wolley, but suffered a 20-8 loss. That game concludes the 2015 season for the Wolverines. The team will lose seven seniors heading into next year but with a young team they hope to learn more of the new spread offense.
