The Final Standings
North Baltimore was the site of the Midland Athletic League Wrestling Championships, for the first and the last time. The MAL will be disbanded in 2014, with NB joining the Blanchard Valley Conference.
The new school, with a new gym and the NB Staff performed nicely in hosting the first such event at NBHS on Tiger Drive.
