Lady Blaze score first state tournament berth since 2015

By Kayla Walker MTN Sports Reporter March 10, 2021 The Blackman girls’ basketball team celebrated winning their first state tournament berth since 2015 after winning 52-45 against Stone Memorial in the Class AAA sectional last Saturday.


This accomplishment was nothing short than a reward for their tough and challenging season.


The Lady Blaze played through a season of changes. It's their first season with new head coach Jennifer Grandstaff. They also endured two COVID-19 quarantines along with a month layoff earlier in the season.


Blackman will play Thursday in the state quarterfinals at 7pm against Arlington at the Murphy Center.
