There'll be plenty of challenges for Baldwin, but the team seems ready to adapt.
"Speed and defense." If Head Coach Gavin Prosser has been trying to drive something into the brains of his players this preseason, he's certainly getting that done. When asked to identify what might be the calling card of the 2012-13 Baldwin High School girls varsity basketball team, Prosser mentioned "speed and defense," and that was after two of his players answered the same question with the same three words. The Baldwin High girls have added a promising 6-foot freshman center—Carly Lutz—to their young roster this season, but the team will mostly have to rely on smaller players, most of whom have less scoring pedigree than three of the squad's leaders from a season ago. And all of three of those ladies have graduated. Gone from the …

But the Highlanders give Mt. Lebanon a scare through three quarters.
Call it destiny. Well, maybe a curse. Baldwin High School, which has appeared in the girls state (PIAA) basketball playoffs in three out of the past four years—and won at least one state playoffs game every time—have always drawn Mt. Lebanon High School later in the bracket. And each time, Mt. Lebanon—the three-time defending state champion—has ended Baldwin's season. Such was the case again on Tuesday night in the second round of the PIAA tournament at Duquesne University's A.J. Palumbo Center, where the Blue Devils, WPIAL champions in three out of the past four years, improved to 25-3 for the season with a 45-32 win over Baldwin. The Highlanders finish the 2011-12 campaign at 19-8. The game was played much closer than the final score …
Again, the Highlanders will have to beat Mt. Lebanon to stay alive in the playoffs.
0-4. Baldwin High School's varsity girls basketball team has accomplished a lot in the past four years—quite a lot in fact. Try four WPIAL playoffs appearances. Three state playoffs trips. Twelve postseason victories in total. But that doesn't change one thing. In the past four postseasons, Baldwin is 0-4 against Mt. Lebanon High School. More or less, the Mt. Lebanon Blue Devils (24-3 this season)—state champions three years running—have eliminated the Highlanders (19-7) from the playoffs in each of the past three seasons. But that could all change in a hurry on Tuesday night when the teams meet again at Duquesne University's A.J. Palumbo Center at 6:30. It'll be a second-round state (PIAA) playoffs game this year, but the last time that …

Highlanders beat Shaler Area High School, 39-28, on Friday night.
UPDATE: Time and place are set: BALDWIN HIGH SCHOOL's VARSITY GIRLS BASKETBALL team will play Oakland Catholic High School at 6 p.m. on Tuesday (at neutral-site North Allegheny High School) in the WPIAL semifinals. (Tickets cost $6 each.) Baldwin High School's varsity girls basketball team turned the lights out on Shaler Area High School's WPIAL title dreams on Friday night—literally. After a power outage delayed Friday's WPIAL AAAA playoffs game at neutral-site Fox Chapel Area High School for 41 minutes midway through the third quarter, Baldwin High finished the game on a 16-6 run to win, 39-28, and advance to the WPIAL's "final four," which starts Tuesday with a semifinals game against Oakland Catholic High School. The Highlanders (17-6…

Prosser, a 2003 Baldwin High School alum, is in his first season as a high school coach.
The Baldwin High School varsity girls basketball team has compiled an average record of 18-7 over the past four seasons, including three consecutive WPIAL playoffs appearances, a WPIAL championship game berth and two trips to the PIAA playoffs. But the team's newest head coach, Baldwin High alum Gavin Prosser '03, has a career head coaching record of 0-0. As with the boys team at Baldwin, the Highlanders girls will play under a new head coach during the 2011-12 season, a coach that is leading a varsity basketball team for the first time. Though, Prosser is not without some pedigree. He was an all-WPIAL point guard as a player for the Highlanders, scoring over 1,200 career points and leaving the school as its second all-time leading male …
