Cross country teams prove to be double trouble
November 6, 2002
Baldwin High School carried home its usual state championship from the Class 4A Cross Country Meet Saturday in Wamego, but this time there were two. The BHS boys won the Bulldog’s fifth-straight title one for the thumb, so to speak while the BHS girls got into the act for the first time ever. It wasn’t close in either race, either, with the boys winning by 18 points and the girls by a whopping 45 points. “It was unbelievable,” said coach Mike Spielman. “We knew going in if we did what we should do we could do it. But going in and doing it is another thing. Being ranked No. 1 for weeks gave us some confidence.”
