Explosion at school forces Blaine to move Lynden volleyball match

All on-campus sporting events at Blaine High School on Thursday, Sept. 29, have been rescheduled, according to vice principal and athletic director Wayne Vezzetti, after an explosion in an electrical room at the high school Wednesday night, Sept. 28, forced the closure of the city’s public schools. No injuries were reported.

The Borderites’ varsity, junior varsity and C-team volleyball matches originally scheduled for Thursday night against Lynden have been moved to Monday, Oct. 3.

“They’re testing everything to make sure it’s all all right, and they don’t want anybody around when they’re doing that,” Vezzetti said.

Since Blaine plays its home soccer games off-site at Pipeline Fields, Vezzetti said, Thursday’s game against the Lions scheduled for 4:30 p.m. was played as scheduled.

Blaine’s football game at Anacortes on Friday, Sept. 30, also is not expected to be affected, Vezzetti said.
