Competing in their first playoff game in three years, the Blaine girls varsity basketball team held its own against higher-seeded Liberty High School on February 7, but couldn’t comeback from Liberty’s early lead.
The 54–45 loss at Liberty High School ended Blaine’s season.
“The girls played really hard and things didn’t fall where they needed to fall and Liberty hit some shots that they needed to hit,” said Blaine head coach Ryan Pike.
Talented shooter Sydney Argosino led Liberty with a game-high 25 points. Josie Deming scored 18 points for Blaine.
“We didn’t sub out a lot and all our starters contributed a lot for us,” Pike said.
