BHS football interest kicks up
The summer season of Baldwin High School football is well under way, both on the field and in the weight room.
BHS head coach Mike Berg said Monday's turnout for weights was 55, the highest total yet. There were other newcomers Tuesday morning as well.
On the field, the varsity Bulldogs went 1-2 in the Eudora 7-on-7 league Saturday. They beat Eudora 14-6 in the opener, then fell to DeSoto 24-8 and came up just short against Lansing, 22-16. The junior varsity Bulldogs lost three games.
Both teams were playing short handed. Quarterback Heath Knight and wide receiver Ben Cosman were both attending a football camp in Oklahoma. Two other players were missing in order to attend a baseball tournament.
Basketball starts for high schoolers, too
Two Baldwin High School basketball teams opened play in Sport-2-Sport's Danny Manning League on June 7.
The Old Dogs, comprised of juniors and seniors, lost both games, as did the Young Dogs, a team of freshmen and sophomores. The teams play on Wednesday evenings through the end of June.
Like the BHS football team in the Eudora league, the basketball Bulldogs were playing without Heath Knight and Ben Cosman who were attending a football camp in Oklahoma.
