Sehome Trio Makes History

The Sehome Mariners did a lot of good things this year, especially when they ended on a four-game winning streak. Statistically, they did something that no other Sehome team before them has ever done… They had three different players score at least 10 touchdowns! That’s a pretty amazing accomplishment, considering some of the great Mariner football teams of the past. A lot of credit has to go to offensive coordinator, Greg Terpstra.

Running back Dylan Roberts scored 14 touchdowns, wide receiver Melloy Nelson scored 12 touchdowns, and quarterback Michael Mindnich found the end zone 10 times. The great part about it is that all three players are returning next season, along with Austin Roberts (who was the only player in Whatcom County this season to return two kickoffs for touchdowns) and Jay Travier (who led Whatcom County with five interceptions).

The future looks bright for the Mariners, and Whatcom County high school football is better for it.


Bauman Eclipses 7000 Passing Yards

When Nooksack Valley senior quarterback Casey Bauman hit junior wide receiver Baylor Galley down the right sideline for a 37-yard gain in the first quarter of Friday’s win at Sultan, he surpassed former Meridian quarterback Jordan Slesk as the Whatcom County career leader in passing yards. But, when he connected with 6-foot-6 senior wide out Jordan Veening for a 71-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter, he became the first player in county history to pass for over 7000 yards in a career. But, you better watch out, Casey… Simon is getting close!!
