The city of Lynden could arguably have been the best basketball city of 2018 in the state of Washington. The city took home three out of four state titles in last seasons 1A and 2A state tournament. 

Lynden High and Lynden Christian are both dominating their classification, on the boys and the girls side. Some would say these are the best teams in the state, regardless of class.

The latest Boy's WIAA RPI has Lynden Christian ranked #1 with Lynden coming in as #5. Lynden Christian girls are also ranked #1 in the state. But the team who finished 2018 on top would have to be Lynden High School Boys. 

Aside from their 2018 state title, the Lynden Lions have some impressive wins on their resume this season. They defeated a Marysville Pilchuck team led by Univ. Washington commit Raequan Battle by 34 at Marysville. They also shocked 3A powerhouse O'Dea by 23 at home.
