Lynden will be HEAVY favorites to repeat in the NWC. In their defense they usually do schedule quality opponents. NWC teams have only had 2 non-conference games a year. Lynden will always play Ferndale (A quality opponent) due to their rivalry. Yes, the past couple seasons due to home and home games against Centennial of Canada the other non-conference opponent has lacked some. But, prior to that they played Ferndale & ATM as non-conference, nothing wrong with those teams. Has anyone seen schedules for this year yet. I'm curious to see B-E's. Because of limits on non-conference games over the past several years we've been playing two local teams as our non-conference due to natural rivalries. (MV & SW) It'll be nice to get an out of area home & home again. I've heard rumors that one of the home & homes will be renewing games with Ferndale. I've also heard the other in addition to MV would be Meridian. I sure hope not. I'd like a home & home with ATM, Cedarcrest or Lakewood or some other league's upper echelon teams.
