Although the team was seperated to compete at different times in separate places, the Baldwin High School boys track team held its own as it faced area and out-of-state competition. The weekend brought a sense of pride to the Bulldog athletes as they competed against the most difficult competitors of the year.

Six boys strove for titles at the KU Relays Saturday. The meet hosted athletes from Colorado, Texas, Nebraska, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Kansas. Over 4,000 athletes were in attendance.

"We competed very well," said head coach Mike Spielman. "We had some great times and great performances. This was the most difficult meet of the year. We did a great job of not being intimidated by the competition."

Many of the team members felt it was a valuable experience, as well.

"I would have liked to have thrown a little farther," junior Hugh Murphy said. "It was a fun environment for such tough competition. Overall, I felt it was a great experience for the team."

Murphy placed ninth in javelin.

Other KU Relay results were: junior Eric Brown, first in javelin; junior Matt Noonan, 10th in 1,600-meter run; junior Eric Black, 12th in 800-meter run, 22nd in high jump; 4 x 800-meter relay team of Noonan, Black, and juniors Hans Broers and Glen Stansberry placed sixth.

A larger group of athletes were sent to compete in the Eudora Relays on Friday. The team placed fourth out of 10 area schools. The individual results brought many into the spotlight.

"I was really excited with the performances of the sprinters and jumpers," Spielman said. "Tyler (Inzer) tied the school record for the 100-meters with a time of 11 seconds."

Inzer, a junior, felt satisfied with the improvement in his times.

"I felt pretty good about my time," Inzer said. "I liked the wind behind me. I thought it was a good meet to see how Baldwin could do without the studs because they were at the KU Relays."

Inzer also placed second in the 200-meter dash.

Other results of the Eudora Relays: senior Evan Durnal, second in 200 meter, second in triple jump; senior Bo Donora, fifth in long jump; senior Wesley Broyles, third in javelin; 4x100-meter relay team of Inzer, Durnal and freshmen Micah Mason and Andy Hannon placed second.

The Bulldogs competed at Spring Hill Monday, but results weren't available by press time. The squad will compete at Girard on Friday at 3 p.m.
