Spring sports begin; some wins, some loses and a conference leader

Posted

While all spring sports had scheduled events so far in the WIAA’s adjusted season 2, some results are yet to be posted and will be updated following the return from spring break next week.

Boys Soccer

The Borderites had a rough start to their season with two resounding away losses last week. The boys traveled to Lynden March 30 where they lost 11-1. Following the 10 goal defeat, the Borderites lost to Bellingham 9-0 April 1.

The Borderites will host Oak Harbor 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 13.

Baseball

The Borderites opened the season with an 8-4 win at Meridian April 5 after a late start to the season. Due to a positive Covid-19 case in the football team and many students playing both football and baseball, the Blaine athletic department decided to delay the baseball season a week to allow for those players to quarantine for the necessary two weeks. The boys were set to host Squalicum at home Tuesday, April 6.

The Borderites are scheduled to host Ferndale Tuesday, April 13, at 4:30 p.m.

Softball

The Lady Borderites traveled to Ferndale March 29 and lost 7-2 only to return home two days later and defeat the Golden Eagles 8-3. On March 31, Blaine softball beat Ferndale 8-3 in the home-opener and second game of the season. The Borderites were set to travel to Mount Baker and Nooksack Valley April 7 for a double-header.

After spring break, the softball team will play a double-header at home against Lynden Thursday, April 15, at 4 and 5:45 p.m.
