BMX season opener set for April 22

The 2021 Lincoln Park BMX season starts this Thursday, April 22, and runs through Nov. 14.

The track has seen a major rebuild for the 2021 season and the first corner has been repaved, president/track operator Sean Coleman said.

Riders from ages 2 to 75 ride at the track.

“(It’s) one of the few sports where the whole family can participate at the same time and no one sits on the bench,” Coleman said.

Balance bike riders race and practice for free with membership.

Track bikes and helmets are available at no charge, with limited supplies (about 50 bikes and 60 helmets) on hand.

Because of COVID protocols, sign-ups are only online; no spectators are allowed at this time.

Pirates erupt in second half, edge Cardinals

Peninsula College’s men’s basketball team fell in a deep hole early, but roared back with a huge second half to beat previously undefeated Skagit Valley 76-72 on April 17.

The host Pirates (3-3) got down early 33-15, but shot 76 percent from the floor in the second half (19-for-25), including 6-for-7 from 3-point range, to outscore Skagit Valley 51-33 in the second half.

Ty Artis led the Pirates with 17 points, six assists and five steals. Isaiah Sampson had 14 points and nine rebounds, while Vince McFarland shot a perfect 5-for-5 from the floor and scored 11 points.

Peninsula next plays at Everett (3-2) on Wednesday, April 21. PC hosts Edmonds on April 24.

The Pirate women saw their April 17 game against Skagit canceled because of COVID safety protocols. They are back in action April 21 at Everett and April 24 at home against Olympic.
