Baldwin girls fall to Walkerville

BALDWIN — Baldwin’s girls basketball team lost 50-36 to Walkerville on the road Friday night in West Michigan D League girls basketball action.

Makayla George led Baldwin with 12 points.

“We just struggled on the boards, we gave up too many second shots,” Baldwin coach Doug Bolles said. “We got dominated on the boards. The positive thing is we never gave up and we continued to hustle.”

Bolles is hoping the Baldwin offense can improve in upcoming action.

“We missed too many open shots as well,” he said of the Walkerville game. “We had good shots, we just missed open looks. We need to start hitting those if we are going to be competitive.”

Bolles praised the efforts of senior Weniesha Newman.

“Weneisha did a super job for us on the boards, battling to try and keep the Wildcats off the glass,” Bolles said. “She hustled the whole time she was on the floor. I’m really happy with her effort.”

Baldwin was scheduled to play at Custer-Mason County Eastern on Wednesday and have a home game Friday with Onekama. Both are West Michigan D League games.

The first game after the break is Jan. 7 at home with Brethren.
