Improving individual skills
June 14, 2007
Several Baldwin High School basketball players took the court this week … against their teammates. On Monday, the annual Baker University summer basketball league began. BHS entered three girls’ and two boys’ teams in the league. On Monday and Tuesday, the Bulldogs’ teams played each other to begin the summer league. The BHS girls’ upperclassman teams squared off Monday night. Then the two boys’ teams faced each other the following night. “It was fun,” senior-to-be Drew Berg said of playing the younger BHS boys’ team Tuesday. “I kind of wish we would have played someone else, because we play them all of the time in practice. But, it was fun.”
