The Laurel Shootout featured some of the best players from Whatcom County. Here’s some names that stood out to me during the first action of summer league.


Tyler Sipma Tyler Sipma 6'0" | CG Lynden Christian | 2023 State WA -Lynden Christian HS -Class of 2023

With 2022 graduate Andrew Hommes headed off to Point Loma, Tyler has taken the leadership role for this team and is not disappointing. Tyler’s confidence on the court of what amazes me. He’s not afraid to attack the ball and finish through bigger defenders. He’s also able to distribute the ball to his teammates phenomenally. He is always finding his bigs down low, or his shooters outside. Tyler’s voice can be heard in the gym always, despite the 2 games going on at once in the same gym. Sipma has a very steady jump shot as well, hitting the outside shot and mid-range when he wants. Another thing that stood out to me is how Tyler controls the ball. He’s an amazing ball handler who can easily split a double team and find his open teammate. LC is already coming off a state championship, and they might be headed for another.
