The Blaine varsity volleyball team continued its stellar season with a 3–0 win against Sedro-Woolley this week, just after its first loss to Lynden last week.

In that 3–1 loss, the Borderites had trouble adjusting to Lynden’s aggressive serves, said Blaine head coach Bryan Clausen.

Against Sedro-Woolley, Blaine won in three matches with scores of 25–18, 25–16 and 25–22. Camryn Vosloh had 14 kills and three blocks; Alexis Hallberg had seven kills and 13 digs; Ashley Dickerson had three blocks and Kylah Wilskey had 10 digs.

The team has a 6–1 record overall (5–1 in 2A Northwest Conference games), which puts it near the top of the conference leaderboard in a three-way tie for second.

They may be a shoo-in for playoffs, but the Borderites still have to face some tough opponents before the regular season ends, including Burlington and Ferndale. The Borderites next home match is on Tuesday, October 10 against Bellingham (0–7).


A slow first half with a fumble and a couple of interceptions hampered Blaine varsity football on Friday, September 29, against Anacortes, resulting in a 36–30 loss.

The Borderites scored 23 points in the fourth quarter and had a final shot at tying the game, but it wasn’t enough to make up for the poor start.

Chase Abshere caught two touchdown receptions from Cam Ellis, Julian Gonzales rushed in a touchdown and Max Miller recovered a fumble and ran it in for a touchdown.

Blaine’s record is 0–5.

Blaine’s next game is at 7 p.m. on Friday, October 6 against Lynden at home.
