The Lyncs’ guard will join her older sister, Avery, playing for the hometown Vikings next year. The three-year letter winner and two-year starter was named first-team all-state tournament in leading Lynden Christian to the Class 1A state title game last year and was a second-team all-state tournament choice for LC’s state championship team in 2018. Last season, she earned second-team all-Northwest Conference honors after averaging 10.4 points on 50 percent shooting from the field, 5 rebounds, 2 assists and 1.3 steals.
