— Baldwin High’s girls cross country dynasty continued Saturday at the Class 4A state meet.

While it was the fewest number of state medalists for the Bulldogs in recent years, they still easily won the state championship. BHS scored 65 team points, while second-place Maize South had 91.

“I was really excited about how well they ran,” Baldwin coach Mike Spielman said. “The kids have done a great job of keeping the tradition going. They don’t want to see the streak end. They did a great job of taking care of each other and making sure the team title is the most important thing.”

Baldwin has won a 4A-record five straight state titles and eight of the last 10.

Sophomore Katie Jones led the Bulldogs with an 11th-place finish. She ran the four-kilometer course in a time of 16:03.91. Senior Carol Whaley was 12th in 16:04.73.

On the boys’ side, Baldwin placed fifth. Sophomore Ethan Hartzell led BHS with a runner-up finish to De Soto’s Angel Vasquez, who won the five-kilometer race in 16:30.47.
