Are you still calling Baldwin High the Wildcats? Seriously? Baker is the Wildcats and Baldwin is the Bulldogs. Yes, they are in the same town, but I don't believe you call LHS or FSHS the Jayhawks. Congrats to the Baldwin BULLDOGS on a great season!! Tough injuries made it hard to win all season but the Bulldogs still won 7 games. Congrats boys!!
