Lady Bears Clinch Share of Big 12 Women's Tennis Title
April 13, 2014

With two wins this weekend, the Baylor women’s tennis team has clinched at least a share of the 2014 Big 12 regular season crown. With one match remaining, the Lady Bears remain unbeaten in conference play (8-0) and sit at 20-6 overall.

Baylor, currently ranked No. 17 in the ITA team rankings, entered the weekend tied atop the Big 12 standings with No. 23 Oklahoma State at 6-0 with a Friday night matchup looming. The Lady Bears bested the Cowgirls, 5-2, in Waco.

Baylor pushed ahead early in the match by snagging the doubles point for the ninth match in a row. In singles action, Baylor earned wins on four of the six courts.

BU added a victory against No. 18 Oklahoma on Sunday, defeating the Sooners 6-1 on Senior Day in Waco. The Lady Bears picked up the doubles point for the 10th consecutive match and took five of the singles points giving BU its 10th win in a row.

The Bears have now won or shared 10 Big 12 regular season titles, including nine of the last 10. Baylor will look to become the 12th school to finish conference play undefeated in the 18-year history of the league when they travel to Austin to face Texas on Friday, April 18.
