Winter sports underway with two new coaches


By Oliver Lazenby

Blaine High School winter sports teams started practicing last week and they have a couple of new coaches.

Tom Hinz took over as head wrestling coach for Colt Warren, who left for a teaching job in another school district. Hinz has worked with Blaine wrestlers as an assistant coach for the past two years and was a former head wrestling coach at Bellingham High School.

On the basketball court, Brett Farrar replaced Rob Ridnour as boys head coach. Ridnour retired last season. Farrar coached at Sedro-Woolley High School from 2013 to 2018.

The girls and boys basketball teams start their seasons at home against Friday Harbor on Tuesday, November 27. The girls play at 3:30 p.m. and the boys play at 5 p.m.

The Blaine boys’ wrestling season starts on Saturday, December 1, at the Return of the Seahawk Tournament at Chief Sealth International High School in Seattle. The Borderites first home meet is at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, December 5 against Meridian and Squalicum.
