PREP GIRLS' BASKETBALL: Blaine preview

BLAINE BORDERITES

Coach: Jeremy Hinchey

Last season: 6-15 overall (5-8 NWC) eliminated in the first round of the Class 2A Northwest District tournament

Players to watch: Kellee Harbst, (Sr., P), Kristen Elsbree, (Jr., G), Bailey Richardson, (Jr., G)

Outlook: Blaine has one of the most experienced backcourts in the conference with Elsbree and Richardson returning. Harbst will be asked to do a lot in the post for the Broderites, but she should be up for the challenge. She averaged 13.1 points per game last season and will be a go-to player for Blaine. The bench is filled with younger players and that could be a challenge early, but it also means Blaine should get better as the season goes on.
