BHS boys place third at KT Woodman

April 21, 2005

The Baldwin High School boys track team capped off their incredible week by placing third as a team at the annual KT Woodman meet in Wichita, Friday night.

The Bulldogs finished with 46 points which was just 25 points behind the first place of Wichita-Independent. Only one 4-A school, Clearwater high school, beat Baldwin.

"I was really happy with how the boys competed in a big meet," coach Mike Spielman said. "All three of our relays did really well."

The boys registered first-place finishes in both the 3,200-meter and the 1,600-meter relays. The Bulldogs also finished third with their 400-meter relay. The three relays combined, accounted for 26 of Baldwin points.

The rest of the points for the Bulldogs were scored with the help of three top-ten finishes in the 800 meter run, a fifth-place finish by sophomore Aaron Mills in the long jump and a third and fourth-place finish for junior Keith Cowart in the 3,200-meter run and the 1,600-meter run, respectively.

Senior Sam Hinton scored the top individual finish for the Bulldogs with a second-place finish in the 800.

The Bulldogs continue their busy schedule with the Cardinal Relays Friday at Eudora. Then several members of the team will compete at the Kansas University Relays Friday and Saturday at Memorial Stadium in Lawrence.
