— Baldwin High School’s cross country teams got back on track here Thursday afternoon.

Both BHS teams won the Frontier League titles — a year after both squads ended their league championship streaks that lasted 10 or more years.

Baldwin also won three of the four races Thursday. Winning the varsity boys’ race was sophomore Tony Weiss. He trailed Gardner-Edgerton’s Mitch Loring for most of the race, but passed him with about 200 meters remaining and cruised to victory in a time of 16:37.

BHS also had individual winners in both of the junior varsity races. Junior Josh Hanson won the JV boys’ race and junior Misty Emery won the JV girls’ race.

The BHS varsity girls’ team didn’t have an individual winner, but all seven runners finished in the top 13. The Bulldogs scored 32 points to hold off De Soto (40) and Gardner-Edgerton (101). Only six of the eight league schools filled a full girls’ team Thursday.

On the boys’ side, Baldwin won a close contest. BHS scored 51 points as, once again, De Soto (55) was second and Gardner-Edgeron (58) finished third.

The BHS boys had a streak of 11 straight titles before last year, while the girls’ team previously won 10 in a row.

There will be full stories on the league meet with photos in Thursday’s Signal.
