The Whiteford Bobcats will open the 2018-19 girls basketball season tonight on the road against the Blissfield Royals.
The Bobcats welcome back the school’s all-time leading 3-point shooter in Baylee Baldwin along with three other starters back from last season’s 13-8 team.
Baldwin is a senior, along with Katlyn Taylor, Katie Lipp, Madison Durden, Maddison Eipperle and Lindsey Walker. Juniors on the squad include Jessica Mercurio and Natalia DiTerlizzi. Paige Thomas is a sophomore and freshman Kinzie Kohler joins the varsity as well.
