Fastpitch Softball: 2A District 1 Championship
6:30 p.m. Friday, May 17, Janicki Fields

Like many other Class 2A tournaments in District 1, the shortage of state berths brings far higher stakes for this year's title game.

With only two spots instead of three, simply reaching the championship no longer guarantees a spot in the state tournament. The loser must win in the consolation final to advance. At least one in-state team will stay home.

It's another close race this season. Sedro-Woolley (17-1, 14-0 Northwest Conference) is the clear favorite, having won league play, but Lynden (15-5, 11-3 NWC), Burlington-Edison (13-6, 12th). -2 NWC) and Lakewood (12-5, 10-4 NWC) are all contenders.

Sedro-Woolley defeated Lynden 2-1 in this game last season. However, neither was able to secure a trophy in the 2A state tournament.

Boys soccer: 1A District 1 championship, Meridian vs. Lynden Christian
7 p.m. Saturday, May 11, Blaine High School

Meridian returns to the district championship as reigning champions for the second year in a row.

However, Lynden Christian is not far away from a title. The Lyncs defeated Meridian 3-1 in the 2022 championship game. There's a lot at stake since there's no double-elimination due to the lone state spot.

Meridian beat Blaine in this game a season ago, but the Trojans lost to LC twice in the regular season. This time it's win or go home.
