Arlington 61, Anacortes 14

The Eagles improved to 4-1 with the nonconference victory over the Seahawks Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Anacortes coach Nate Dunham said Arlington proved to be a tough opponent, especially with the Eagles’ pestering defense.

“They did a lot that was really good,” he said. “They press and trap and are aggressive to the ball. If you hesitate or show weakness they’re on you. You have to be extremely disciplined and battle through contact. We didn’t do that tonight.”


Burlington-Edison 50, Anacortes 16

Burlington-Edison was tough on both ends of the court Friday, Dec. 13, as the Tigers girls’ basketball team downed Anacortes.

Reisner scored a game-high 17 points, and the Tigers beat Anacortes 50-16 in the TigerHawk Challenge.

Dunham said his team played good defense at times.

“At times we showed defensively some glimpses of what we could become but it wasn’t sustained,” he said. “That’s our job as coaches … to teach and get them better, and we’ll get better.”

The Seahawks lost twice Wednesday, Dec. 11, against Everett and Marysville-Getchell, but head coach Michael Lomsdalen said the team got good performances by Michael Hanrahan, who upended an opponent against Everett, and James Friedrichs, who Lomsdalen said wrestled well at 138.

“He’s got so much fight in him, I love seeing it,” Lomsdalen said.
