BALDWIN \u2014 Baldwin\u2019s girls basketball team was 0-2 after its first two games last week. The Panthers lost to Mason County Eastern on Friday 38-27. \u201cThe kids just laid it out there,\u201d Baldwin coach Doug Bolles said. \u201cYes, we lost by 11 points. But the heart and grit, I\u2019m excited about these girls. It will be a struggle to make baskets. But they\u2019re going to keep battling.\u201d Leading scorer for Baldwin was Diamond Cannon with 10 points and 15 rebounds. Jaylee Warren chipped in with six points. \u201cI\u2019m actually really happy with them,\u201d Bolles said. \u201cThe first game we dressed just nine girls. Of the nine girls, only three of them had varsity experience. Two are sophomores and one is a senior. My senior, Nicole Mooney, it\u2019s only her second year. My experience is young.\u201d The first game was Wednesday, Dec. 9 against Walkerville, which was playing its fourth game. Baldwin lost 47-24. Leading scorer for Baldwin was Cannon with 10 points and eight rebounds, while freshman Amani Freeman had six points and 10 boards.\u00a0 \u201cJaylee Warren also had a solid all-around game, with many nice passes and great hustle,\u201d Bolles said. Baldwin is now 0-2 overall and in WMD league play. Baldwin played Wednesday at Onekama and is at Brethren on Friday for two league games. \u201cThe tougher teams are coming,\u201d Bolles said. \u201cThat will be tough on us. But I\u2019m happy with the effort so far. They\u2019re not playing like freshmen and sophomores. We\u2019re like a JV team playing varsity. But they\u2019re coming to play. They know it will be tough. They\u2019re going to work.\u201d The first game last week \u201cwas a warmup to the season,\u201d sophomore Kiera Barker said, noting the season opener was delayed a week. \u201cWe need to see where (improvement was needed). We were amazing on defense. But we weren\u2019t as good offensively. We\u2019re loosening up right now.\u201d The Panthers also are playing without Makayla George, out until January with a knee injury.
