BALDWIN – Varsity girls basketball is back at Baldwin following a five-year absence as the Panthers took on Cadillac Heritage in a home game on Tuesday.

The Panthers lost 59-7. They trailed 20-2 after the first quarter and 35-4 at halftime.

“I found a lot of things we can build on,” Panther coach Rusty Fullerton said.

Players for the Panthers are senior Autumn Highton, Bre’Indel Watkins, and Nate Shannon; juniors Kelsie Hayter, Brittney Hull-Sanders and Naomi Marsh-Robinson and freshmen Brenda Hull Sanders and Raylene Little.

The Panthers had a varsity team for 2017-18 but did not have enough numbers for 2018-19 and had a JV team 2019-20. There were no girls basketball teams the previous two seasons.

The varsity girls still play at Marion on Friday with a 6 p.m. tipoff time. Their next home game is Dec. 9 with Crossroads Charter Academy.
