A BladenOnline SALUTE to the East Bladen Girls Basketball Team.  Their season ended Saturday with an overtime loss to Richlands 93-82.  Eagles record for the year, 27-2, just 2 wins short of a state championship.  Great season for the players, coaches and supporters.  And, thanks to John Clark and Kenneth Armstrong for excellence coverage, including photos.

BladenOnline had another super week so far as statistics are concerned.
