Baldwin girls basketball team still searching for first victory

BALDWIN —  Baldwin’s girls basketball team is on a holiday break after finishing the December part of the schedule with an 0-3 record.

The Panthers lost 50-27 at Mason County Eastern on Dec. 17, in West Michigan D League action. A scheduled game at Onekama Friday was postponed to a date yet to be determined. Onekama schools was going through a student illness which forced the postponement.

Jheresa Lewis led Baldwin in scoring against Mason County Eastern with 12 points followed by Makayla George with nine.

“The girls are continuing to work hard, never quitting, playing for four quarters,” coach Doug Bolles said. “We just can’t consistently make shots.”

The Panthers are now 0-3 overall and in conference. Their next game is at home Jan. 7 vs. Brethren. 

“We have a scrimmage Dec. 30 at Buckley, which will help us a lot in moving forward,” Bolles said.

The Panthers are off next week but will have various practices, plus the scrimmage, the following week.

Bolles saluted senior Miranda Roberts this week “for her unselfish team play and hard work on the defensive end of the court. I’m proud of her leadership.”

Baldwin also plays at Manistee Catholic Jan. 9 and is home Jan. 12 and Jan. 14 for games with Traverse City Academy and Bear Lake.
