Anacortes finished last in a six-team field March 19 in a Northwest Conference tournament at Sudden Valley Golf & Country Club.
Anacortes finished third March 19 in a Northwest Conference match at Lake Padden Golf Course.
Anacortes is showing a real knack for winning close games. The Seahawks posted four wins last week by a combined seven runs to improve to 6-0.
About 80 student sailors from a dozen high schools will converge on Seafarers’ Memorial Park Saturday for the Anacortes 2v2 Regional Regatta.
The event is hosted by the Anacortes Sailing Team, which will have 17 sailors racing.
“I am excited about bringing this regatta to Anacortes,” coach Erik Mann said in an e-mail. “It is the first high school regatta Anacortes has hosted in over 12 years.”
The first race is scheduled to start at 10:45 a.m., weather permitting, Mann said.
Outlook: The Seahawks are going to be young this season — as in six freshmen — and Coach Darren Bell is fine with that.
“I could be starting all six freshmen,” he said. “They are very good and there is a good possibility for all six to start. We are young, but we have some talent. We hope to be able to play a stylish brand of soccer.”
Outlook: Coach Tom Swapp said many of the Seahawks’ players worked hard in the offseason. They’ll be glad they did, he said, with a competitive Northwest Conference to contend with this season.
“I know Sedro-Woolley and Burlington-Edison are returning strong teams. The 2As are loaded in our league,” he said.
