Louisburg — Baldwin High kept its undefeated season alive and won its first tournament Friday night.

The Bulldogs (4-0) beat Iola in the championship game of the Bulldog/Wildcat Classic. The Bulldogs led the Mustangs during the final 14 minutes and held the Mustangs to two points in the final 3:51.
