2012-2013 Fall Sports Update
School has been back in session for over a month now and Meridian High School’s coaches and athletes are involved in another successful year of Trojan Athletics...
Football has played 6 games already, and after starting off the season with two very strong non-league 2A teams, Burlington-Edison and Lakewood; the Trojans are now entrenched in the very tough competition of NWC 1A League. The Trojans have been victorious in 1A league contests against Friday Harbor and Nooksack, with contests against Blaine, Lynden Christian, and Mount Baker still remaining. The top three (3) 1A teams will begin post-season play on Tuesday October 30th, where the NWC #2 team and the NWC #3 team will be involved in a mini-playoff game at the home of NWC #2. The #1 NWC will receive a bye and an automatic berth to State.
