Our year end traveling banquet will be held Thursday, March 21st at the BHS cafeteria from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm.

Please RSVP so we have an accurate count of people attending the banquet. This information will be used for purchasing the right amount of pizza, beverages, and cake.

The Blaine Girls High School Boosters program is excited to announce that we will offer Girls Spring Basketball for 2019! The Booster program will provide support and coordination for the program. All coaching will be provided by the girls high school coaches and there will be potential for current and former players to provide assistance.
We are intentionally starting small with up to (2) teams for 2019 in grades 7 & 8. Teams will practice together for competition and to play with and learn from each other. Jason Wirtz will coach all teams for 2019.
Our plan is to offer two options for teams playing this year and it’s important to note that these decisions need to be made and agreed to by the full TEAM!
2019 will be a learning experience for all of us, we plan to expand the program for Spring 2020. Our goal over time is to offer teams for grades 5–12. We appreciate your patience and support.
