Baldwin track teams remain focused
BALDWIN — Baldwin’s track teams had some strong perfomances in their most recent jamboree on April 24 at Mason County Eastern.
Jenna Johnson was first in the 100-meter dash (12.84) and tied in the 200 meters (28.0).
Dexter Hossler ran the 1,600-meter run. He was 11th in 6:07.
“It was the first time he ran it,” Baldwin track coach Bob Watkins said.
Darrion Hayter was 12th in the shot put (30-9 ½).
Mariah Sowle was 12th in the long jump (11-1) with a season’s best.
Baldwin was scheduled to be at Brethren on Wednesday of this week.
All of his athletes are playing either baseball or softball, which has made it a challenge for his practice schedule, Watkins said. “I have two other kids who are ineligible right now.”
The Baldwin middle school track teams were at a league jamboree on Thursday at Big Rapids Crossroads.
The Baldwin boys team was seventh out of eight schools. The Baldwin girls were sixth.
For the boys, Carmelo Lindsey was first (9.73) in the 70-meter dash. Azariah Boatwright won the girls 70 meters (10.35).
