Adding to the winning record, the Bulldogs won against Marysville on Saturday with Hubbel as the winning pitcher, and won a double-header against Anderson County on May 1. Thursday's BHS games were rained out at Wellsville.

Beside its winning record, the team has also has enjoyed a lot of fan support. The loyal fans have traveled to away games as well.

"I love our fans," senior Suzie Weege said.
