“We definitely have a Top 25 team,” said head coach Zach Kindler. “We’re pretty fired up about it and I think we can go out there and show the rest of the nation we can be a pretty competitive squad.”
Junior Aaron Caldwell (Overland Park, Kan.) leads the Baker squad after taking fifth-place overall at the 2011 HAAC Championships. Juniors Corey Clark (Carrolton, Texas) and Taylor Nall (Shawnee, Kan.) are also coming of Top 10 finishes at the conference meet.
Other participants on the men’s side include: Seniors Chris Scheideman (Wamego, Kan.) and Justin Hill (Shawnee, Kan.), junior Eric Larson (Overland Park, Kan.) (Shawnee, Kan.) and freshman Vincent Tadokoro (Lee’s Summit, Mo.).
