Hello Everyone,
Hope everyone is staying warm! Here are the Island Dates I have so far. As always they are subject to change, we have a lot of dates to cover this year as both Orcas and Friday Harbor have 11 home dates. We have also added Orcas Christian to the mix. Lopez and Orcas Christian are usually boys and girls varsity, some are single games. Friday Harbor and Orcas are normally JV and Varsity. If you would like to go on a specific date please let me know. If you are available to go any time I need to know that as well. We would like to see all of the varsity officials make at least one trip if at all possible. Here are the dates as of today.
