The 1st Annual Alumni Classic Was a Success

Alumni Classic Players & Coaches

A big mahalo to all of the Alumni Players, Coaches, and fans that came out and made our 1st Annual Baldwin Hoops Alumni Classic such a success. The event was a lot of fun and it was great to see the alumni participating in some 'spirited' and exciting games.

Four teams were selected using a draft process.

In the first game of the day Team 1 (Royal blue) coached by Greg Heyd was defeated by Team 2 (Light blue) coached by Wayne Gushiken by a score of 31-30.
