Because the Northwest Conference will not have all-league teams for this COVID-crazy season, Whatcom Hoops has decided to unveil its own all-star teams … with a little twist.
First of all, these will be all-WHATCOM COUNTY teams, which means the Lummi Nation players will be included but no Skagit or Snohomish County players will be eligible.
Second, while most basketball all-star squads have five-player teams, we don’t know of any high school that has a team with only five players. So our all-Whatcom Hoops squads will have 10 players on their first, second and third (honorable mention) teams.
We will be releasing the teams all this week. Here’s the schedule:
Monday: Girls honorable mention
Tuesday: Boys honorable mentions
Wednesday: Girls second team
Thursday: Boys second team
Friday: Girls first team
Saturday: Boys first team
Sunday: End of the year awards
So, here are the all-Whatcom Hoops girls honorable mentions in alphabetical order.
Squalicum, freshman, guard
Meridian, junior, guard
Lynden, senior, post
Nooksack Valley, senior, guard
Blaine, junior, guard
Squalicum, sophomore, guard
Nooksack Valley, junior, guard
