Baylor Soccer: Highlights vs. TCU

Volleyball

Baylor volleyball (16-6, 4-2 Big 12) powered through the West Virginia Mountaineers (11-10, 2-5 Big 12), 25-22, 25-16, 22-25, 25-21, on Saturday afternoon in the WVU Coliseum. From Baylor Bears dot com.

BU notched 11.0 blocks, the highest blocking output by the Bears in Big 12 play this season, led by seven from Camryn Freiberg.

In the first frame, after trailing at 13-9, the Bears used an 8-2 run to take a two point lead at 17-15. The Bears kept the lead through the back half of the set, closing out the frame on a kill by Katie Staiger.

In the second, the Bears dominated from start to finish, cruising to a 25-16 victory, taking the 2-0 lead in the match.

In the third set, the Bears fought back from a 23-19 deficit, forcing three WVU errors to pull to within one at 23-22. The Mountaineers notched back-to-back kills to clinch the set, forcing the fourth.

In the fourth, BU and WVU traded points through the first half of the set, with Baylor using a 6-2 run to take control. A late push from the Mountaineers cut the lead to three at 22-19, but the Bears pushed back to clinch the 25-21 fourth set win and the match.

"Always glad to get a win on the road anywhere in the Big 12. I was disappointed that we didn't play sharp down the stretch and finish that off in three. Camryn was able to do some good things on offense and defense and help us close it out. Jana did a good job of digging out their attacks and keeping us on top." -Baylor head coach Ryan McGuyre.

Post Game Interviews

Baylor's defense had lived with and heard about its struggles at Iowa State for two weeks. Junior linebacker Raaquan Davis said it felt more like two years. The full story by Jerry Hill of the Baylor Bear Foundation can be read at Baylor Bears dot com.

"It didn't leave a good taste in your mouth," Davis said.

That bad taste is gone.

The weather spoiled the party for Baylor’s homecoming parade last year, but unseasonably warm weather this year bestowed a mild morning under a light overcast sky that translated to near-perfect conditions for the parade that has been a tradition since 1909. From WacoTrib.

Spectators seemed to regard its success as a symbol of the school’s resilience in the wake of storms of a different kind that continue to rock the university.

The 152 entries, including seven large helium balloons and nine floats more than 50 feet long, 18 feet wide and 15 feet tall, proceeded east on Austin Avenue from Eighth Street to Fourth Street and turned right to dogleg onto Fifth Street on campus in front of crowds estimated at 8,000 to 10,000 people, Director of Student Activities Matt Burchett said.
