BALDWIN - It was quite a winter sports season for Derek Mock.

The Baldwin senior was a standout in both basketball and bowling.

"The season has gone good so far," he said late in the year. "We're the champs in the league for Baldwin."

Mock was also on the Panther bowling team last year.

"This year, I got a little better," he said. "You have to keep practicing."

The Baldwin bowling team was league champs. The basketball team also won a league title and Mock was ecstatic to be a two-team conference champion.

Putting basketball and bowling on his schedule "has been no problem," Mock said. "The coaches have figured out the schedule."

Bowling has been a lot of fun, as far as Derek Mock is concerned.

"It's competitive," he said, adding the two-month delay in starting the season "was no big deal."
