In the final minutes of their last regular season game, the Blaine girls varsity basketball team won, securing a spot in the playoffs.
The Borderites were scheduled to play fifth-seeded Liberty High School at 7 p.m. on February 7, at Liberty High School in Renton.
Blaine finished the regular season with a 6–14 overall record. Liberty has an 11–9 overall record in the KingCo conference.
Blaine beat Bellingham 48–43 on February 5 to end the regular season. Bellingham led in the fourth quarter, but Alexis Hallberg hit a three-pointer to take the lead and give Blaine the momentum it needed to hang on to the win, head coach Ryan Pike said.
“I told her if she missed that shot we probably would have lost,” Pike said. “That was a big moment.”
