It was a brutal loss to Baldwin on our home court. Even with the basketball girls cheering (although somewhat subdued – perhaps they were warned to keep things down), the girls could not quite get in sync on offense or defense. Perhaps it was the distraction of homecoming week and the senior game coming up, but it was disappointing to see the girls come up short in this one: 16-25, 12-25, 22-25.
The end of the game Alma Mater had a surprise twist when members of the Baldwin team joined in the big circle. It seemed like some of them were singing along, which would be the ultimate compliment, wouldn’t it? That a school’s Alma Mater was so well-known (and perhaps liked) that rival teams knew the words to them and would want to sing along.
