Coach: Ron Kowalke
Last year: Finished fifth in the Northwest Conference. Qualified two golfers for state out of the 2A Northwest District Tournament.
Players to watch: Young Lee (sr.), Emily Greathouse (sr.), Lindsey Gillern (sr.)
Outlook: Lee is a returning state participant, and the Borderites likely will lean on her experience quite heavily. Besides Greathouse, who has been a two-year district participant, Blaine doesn't have much experience, Kowalke said. Even Gillern, a senior, doesn't have much varsity playing experience and is "learning on the fly," Kowalke said. Blaine also is hoping to have another player or two step forward to give the team a boost. "Because of not having a full team at this time, we're hoping when we get to district that we can move on from there," Kowalke said. "We feel like our better players can qualify and keep moving on. ... Right now, we're figuring out what we can do."
