Ending the season with a bang, Blaine varsity softball won both games of a double-header at home against Meridian on May 10. Blaine won the first, a league game, 14–4, and the second non-league game 15–5.

The Borderites’ bats were hot from the beginning. Taylor Miller hit a double to start the game and scored on a single by Mikayla Johnson. By the end of the inning Blaine had four runs and didn’t let up all night.

“We went out in style,” head coach Nancy Williams said. “We were mentally focused and we played really well.”It was Blaine’s senior night and the seniors stood out throughout the games, Williams said.

“Caitlin Butters made some great plays at third. Taylor Miller went 7-for-8 at bat and she hit her first and only home run of the whole season. She was in the zone,” Williams said. “It was a great farewell. Saying goodbye to the seniors at that game wasn’t so hard. Everyone was enjoying themselves and soaking in the victory.”

The Borderites record for the season was 3–17 overall and 2–11 in league games.
