The Borderites hosted their first competitions in a year Tuesday night.
Blaine girls varsity volleyball defeated Bellingham High School in a closely contested 5-set victory. The Borderites won with set scores of 18-25, 25-23, 25-22, 20-25 and 15-11, kicking their season off with a 1-0 record.
Girls soccer began its season with a loss to Ferndale High School. A late goal with two minutes left in the game came as only a consolation, the game finishing 1-3.
As WIAA rules require, all athletes wore masks while in competition and social distancing was encouraged when possible.
The Borderites host more action this week. Boys and girls varsity cross country kicked off their season February 17, with a head-to-head race against Ferndale, while girls volleyball will play again Saturday, February 20, also against Ferndale.
Varsity football kicks off its season with a home game against Lynden Christian High School Saturday, February 20.
