BHS boys falter in tournament
December 18, 2002
From Signal Staff Report The week could have been better for the Baldwin High School varsity boys basketball team. Losses to Belton, Mo., Turner and Spring Hill gave the Bulldogs an eighth-place finish in the Gardner Invitational Tournament. After a lopsided first loss, the team was barely clipped in the final two losses of the tournament. Although there are many reasons for a loss, injuries and playing without a player didn’t help the cause. “We’ve struggled with health,” said coach Jeff Haas. “There’s been more missed varsity practice this year than all of last year. It’s stunted our growth as a team.”&*&char114&*&
