BHS has strong showing

MILLEDGEVILLE — It was an exciting weekend for Baldwin High basketball fans, as the Braves and Bravettes provided exciting action at home against Westside of Macon Friday night and Hancock Central Saturday.

The ladies were unable to win both games, as they lost 39-46 to Westside, but rebounded for a five-point win over the Lady Bulldogs the following day.

“Obviously, we would have liked to have won the Westside game,” Randall Owens, women’s head coach, said, “but to the credit to our players, they were able to come back and beat Hancock for the third time this season.”

On Friday, the Bravettes learned a tough lesson against Westside in that they must play all four quarters to be successful in region 2-AAAA.

“We had built a double-digit lead in the third quarter, but unfortunately we were able to hold on to that lead,” Owens said. “Several breakdowns on the defensive end, and to Westside’s, credit they took advantage of the opportunities. It was a lesson to our girls that we have to play a full 32-minute game and not a 24-minute game.”

BHS was led in both games on the weekend by a mixture of both upper- and lower-classmen.

“Again, we were in two very tough games,” Owens said. “We had Terrian Williams, Jayla Waller, Tykeasia Williams and Bria Reeves all played very well in both games.”

Owens is pleased with where his young team is right now both overall and in the region, as the Bravettes continue to show improvement on the season.

“Honestly, we’re at nine wins on the season, which is the same number of wins last year, so that shows that we’re moving in the right direction,” he said. “There’s no question about it, we’re in a very tough and competitive region and we play a tough non-region schedule, but I’m very happy with where we are right now.”
