In a season filled with outstanding players, Whatcom Hoops ranked the top 30 girls. Each day we featured an amazing player in our county and counted down until we got to #1. We hope you enjoyed the countdown as we honored the best of the best.
Demi Dykstra, senior, Lynden Christian
WHY SHE’S #8: Dykstra is the definition of a winner with two Class 1A state championships (and another one all but guaranteed if COVID hadn’t erased the state playoffs) and a state runner-up finish on her resume. The 5-foot-9 point guard did whatever it took to win averaging 9 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 steals a game in earning first-team all-Northwest Conference honors, Scorebook Live’s second-team Class 1A all-state honors, and a scholarship to play at Western Washington University. In addition to running the offense and scoring when needed, she was usually assigned to shut down the opposing team’s top backcourt player.
COACH BRADY BOMBER: “Demi does all of the things that contribute to winning. She is a floor general who makes everyone around her better. She’s also as good of a defender as we have had here at Lynden Christian.”
