Mike Spielman, BHS cross country and track coach, led an informal group of coaches and community members interested in replacing the old banners. “I think people are going to be really kind of interested in this,” Spielman said. “I don’t think people realize how well Baldwin has done in some of these activities.” The new banners, which were hung Saturday, celebrate several previously unrecognized activities, such as debate and scholars bowl. They also have a new format. Under the old system, each state title or runner-up received their own banner.
