Blaine girls earn home win over Anacortes


The Blaine girls' basketball team earned a 44-34 Northwest Conference victory Monday, Jan. 6, at home over Anacortes.

Mandy Hayes had 15 points, including three 3-pointers, Taylor V'Dovec had 10 points and nine rebounds, Alexis McElwain added eight points and Breanna Chau had seven points and four assists.

Blaine coach Ryan Pike said the game was a little sloppy at first.
