Brother Rice’s Jimmy Baker practices a jump on Saturday. The senior is participating in both volleyball and track this season, a year after suffering serious leg injuries.
Brother Rice volleyball player Jimmy Baker entered the spring sports season with an eye on competing for a state title.
And he might as well go for the gold in the 200-meter dash and four-by-200-meter relay.
Baker competed in the indoor track season and at the Chicago Catholic League conference meet placed fourth in the long jump (20 feet, 9 inches) and sixth in the triple jump (40-4.75).
“I'm trying to qualify for state, qualify for volleyball state, and win multiple state titles.”
