Know Thy Opponent: Storm Watch ’16!!¡¡¡!1 & LC

Pummeled by two teams in a row only to be buffeted by two successive storms? The Mighty Trohahns can’t catch a break. Should Lynden remain safe from storm surge this evening, there is actually a contest against a non-metrological foe.

Turn that frown upside down, The Mighty Trohahns now enter a brand new world of league play, tabla rasa at 0-0.

1997 Game #4:  Meridian 10, Lynden Christian 0 For the first time in recent memory, the 1997 state reclassification left Lynden Christian as a conference “outsider,” existing as a 1A school in a predominantly 2A league for two years.  LC ultimately would win its way to a 1A state championship, despite losing two games to ...
