The Borderites’ varsity volleyball team is headed to the playoffs after its final game on Wednesday, October 17. The game will determine the team’s seed in the playoffs. Blaine was in the running for somewhere from No. 7 to No. 9 going into the last regular season game against Lakewood (9–4 overall).

Before Wednesday, the Borderites record was 6–7 overall, a solid improvement over last season’s 4–10 record.

Borderite head coach Bryan Clausen said he’s happy with the varsity team’s progress, as well as improvements to the Blaine volleyball program as a whole.

“Overall they’ve come a long way,” he said. “They’re working hard and I’m pleased with the
development.”

The Borderites on Wednesday honored their two seniors, Lauren Kordas and Jessica Philips.
