How can you argue with someone whose entire argument is based on false information?
FACT: All kids who want to transfer to AMHS must sit out a year of varsity competition if they have played one second of varsity competition at a different school the year before. Yes, even those who live right next to Sultan high School.

FACT: If they played all JV the year before, they can transfer and play varsity no matter what.
I would ask Matt Koehler one question:
How would you stack up against the other Cascade Conference schools if Archbishop Murphy were kicked out of the league? What problems would that really solve? Who would you replace them with so that you could have "a fair shot"?
I guarantee you that you're not going to get to the same level as the schools in the North by taking this attitude. As has been stated previously, Lynden shares its high school athletes with Lynden Christian...both are strong athletic schools and Lynden High seems to be holding their own. I guarantee you that AMHS is not bleeding the well dry of Sultan athletes. And if they are, ask yourself why that Sultan athlete would want to leave for AMHS? I'm sure Lynden has quality athletes leave for Lynden Christian every year. Then I bet they deal with it by putting together a superior product on the playing field with what they have. Not whining about fairness or what they don't have.
By the way, how are your school levies and bonds working out? Must be nice to have first class facilities, high coaches salaries and taxpayer-funded athletic budgets. Are you sure the Sultan School District is putting that money to the best use?
