Anacortes boys basketball players bounced back in a big way from a district playoffs loss earlier in the week, defeating Sultan 66-42 Thursday night to secure a bid in the state 2A tournament. The Seahawks’ next game will be Saturday night in Mount Vernon against Lynden. The winner of that game will be the No. 3 seed from the district at state and the loser will be the No. 4 seed. This photograph was taken during pre-game warm-ups last week against Archbishop Murphy.
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
