The North Division will include the HarbourCats and Falcons, and from Washington State, the Bellingham Bells, Wenatchee AppleSox and Walla Walla Sweets. The South Division is has four Oregon teams, the Rogues, Klamath Falls Gems, Bend Elks and Corvallis Knights, and Washington State’s Cowlitz Black Bears and Kitsap BlueJackets.

“We’re excited about the schedule,” WCL president Ken Wilson said, “and believe it accentuates our best rivalries for the fans.”

The HarbourCats will make five road trips, visiting all but the Bend Elks and Corvallis Knights. Travels won’t exceed six games in length.

General manager Holly Jones said the promotional schedule is filling up as the team brings on sponsors and “dreams up exciting game-night themes.”
