BHS finishes fourth in all-sports standings
A strong spring by Ottawa High School dropped Baldwin High down in the final Frontier League all-sports standings.
Heading into the spring season, BHS sat alone in third place, behind Gardner-Edgerton and Paola. When the scores were tallied in late May, the Bulldogs fell to a fourth-place tie with De Soto.
Gardner-Edgerton cruised to its fourth straight win in the mythical standings with 76 points. The Trailblazers won four league titles and finished runner-up in three of the other eight sports. They will only be in the Frontier League for one more year, the 2009-2010 school year, before they join a league with Kansas City area schools.
Paola won the boys’ track championship, but finished second in four other sports. The Panthers scored 65 points in the standings to finish second.
Ottawa used a strong spring season to jump to third. The Cyclones won the league baseball, softball and golf titles. They scored 60 points in the final standings.
Baldwin and De Soto tied for fourth place with 57 points. The Bulldogs only took home league crowns in boys’ and girls’ cross country. De Soto won no league titles.
Eudora scored 48 points, while Louisburg (41) and Spring Hill (29) rounded out the standings.
