The Baldwin boys took first and the girls finished second in Thursday in the Frontier League track meet in Ottawa. The boys scored 129 points to take the crown, outdistancing the 100.5 points of second-place Paola. “The boys did a tremendous job,” coach Mike Spielman said. “The took

care of business at league and now we move on to regionals.” The girls finished with 89 points and were a distant second to Paola, which finished with 192 points. Despite the second-place finish, the girls turned in a number of outstanding performances at the meet. Baldwin girls won five of the meet’s 18 events, breaking three school and league meet records in the process. The girls five first-place finishes was more than the

three champion Paola took home, but the deeper Panther team earned at least one medal in nearly every event. “I can’t ever remember breaking three school records in the same meet,” girls coach Ted Zuzzio said. “We went into league looking to improve our previous week’s time and distances, and 15 of the 20 girls we entered did that very thing. It was an exceptional effort from everyone.” Leading the way for the champion

boys with two individual gold medals were Asher Hannon and Dayton Valentine. Hannon won the 100- and 400-meter dashes with times of 11.19 and 51.16, respectively. He also was on the winning 4 by 100 and 4 by 400 relay teams. Valentine once again scored double gold in the shot put and discus. His winning discus throw of 167-9 was an Please see Track, page 13

| Thursday, May 17, 2012 . BALDWIN’S CHAD BERG slides home safely Monday in the fifth inning of Baldwin’s first-round regional game against Spring Hill as the Bulldogs executed a double steal. Baldwin’s season ended with a 5-4 loss to the region’s top-seeded Broncos.

Stubborn Bulldogs bow out to Broncos BY ELVYN JONES ejones@theworldco.info

EUDORA — The Baldwin High School baseball team nearly defied a season of disappointment when it lost, 5-4, in the first round of regional play to top-seeded Spring Hill. Spring Hill, a two-time state 4A runner-up, won in the bottom of the seventh when a bloop fly ball managed to drop in short center field, scoring a Bronco runner from second base, who got there on an infield single and overthrow at first. “I’m as happy as I can be with a loss,” coach Brian Turk said. “They represented us very well. I was very upset after the Eudora games, and then they came back to play their tails off against Perry and today against the No. 1 seed.” Turk singled out the pitching of senior Hunter Burkhart, who held the Spring Hill batters mostly in check with the help of a defense that erased two Bronco runners at third base, one

on a double-play tag out and the other on a pick-off move. Spring Hill needed its walk-off rally after Baldwin came back from a 4-2 deficit, knotting the score in the top of the seventh inning. Sophomore second baseman Chad Berg started the rally with a oneout double to right and advanced to third base on an infield single from Tyler Kapelle. Two straight walks to Burkhart and Colton Stark cut Spring Hill’s lead to one run and loaded the bases for third baseman Tyler Brenn. The senior missed on a bunt at-

tempt and a running Kapelle was tagged out at the plate. The Bulldogs’ fortune quickly reversed when the next pitch hit the dirt in front of the plate and got by the Spring Hill catcher to the back stop, allowing Burkhart to score from third. The inning ended when senior first baseman Colton Bonner popped out to third. Berg and Burkhart were involved in Baldwin’s two-run fifth inning as well. The inning started with catcher Brandon Mock drawing a walk and advancing to second base on Berg’s one-out single to right. Burkhart got

Mock home with a single, which also advanced Berg to third. The Bulldogs then stole a run when Burkhart took off for second base as an inattentive Spring Hill pitcher held the ball. Burkhart stopped short of second, forcing a rundown, but the Spring Hill infielder opted to throw home in an unsuccessful attempt to stop Berg from scoring Baldwin’s second run. Baldwin finished the season at 4-17. Monday’s loss was the last game for Baldwin seniors Burkhart, Alex Twombly, Brenn, Bonner and Will Simmons.

inch off the meet record. Tosh Mihehuah finished first in the 800 meters 2:01.44 and was part of the winning 4 by 400 and 4 by 800 relay teams. For the girls, Glenn Kelly McCabe,

pressed hard by Paola’s Lauren Frederick, won the 400 with a school and meet record time of 58.76 and anchored the meet and school record effort of the 4 by 400 relay, which finished at 4:00.66 (the best time recorded in the state this year in any class). Kaitlyn Barnes won the 800 with a time of 2:21.58 with teammate Carole Whaley

finishing second at 2:25.23. Barnes and Whaley teamed with McCabe and Elizabeth Sigvaldson on the winning 4 by 400 and 4 by 800 relay teams. Katie Kehl won gold in the discus, breaking her school record with a throw of 145-7. The winning mark was the best of any thrower in the state this year.

Kehl suffered a rare defeat in the shot put. Although Kehl fouled on three of her five throws, it would have taken a personal best on her part to beat Paola’s Morgan Gilliland who won with a toss of 44-0.5. Baldwin will be at home for the 4A regional Friday at Baker’s Liston Stadium.
