June 14, 2014, is a date that should be considered as the greatest day in Bellingham High sports history. On that bright, sunny day, the Blackhawks won two state championships — the first in baseball and the second in softball. The titles came in the same city (Worcester) and occurred within seven miles of each other. This quiz will focus on the softball championship since last month’s quiz dealt with the specifics of the baseball crown. Take this test and challenge your memory on the second title won on June 14, 2014, a day that should remain indelible in the minds of Blackhawk fans.
