Soccer

Women’s soccer preps for second-round matchup | Daily Trojan, After an uneven come-from-behind win Saturday afternoon against Eastern Washington, the No. 9 women’s soccer team (15-3-1) will travel to College Station, Tex., to face No. 23 Baylor (14-5-2) in the second round of the NCAA tournament on Friday afternoon.

The Women of Troy struggled against Big Sky champion Eastern Washington last week, taking two overtime periods to down the Eagles thanks to goals from junior forward Erika Okuma and redshirt senior forward Alex Anthony.

Despite the win, the Trojans were expected to handle their first-round opponents with ease — USC cruised past Eastern Washington 3-1 in the first round of last season’s NCAA tournament — and the team will have to regroup ahead of its matchup against Baylor and change its mentality at the start of the game.

“We got to flesh this one a little bit and go back to what we have been able to do for a large part of the season,” head coach Keidane McAlpine said. “We definitely have to be a lot more focused to start games, having our shot percentage be a lot better, and that will definitely be our focus [against Baylor].”

What are the storylines to watch out for as the Baylor Bears host Iowa State for Senior Day?, BearsIllustrated, What story lines stand out for the Bears as they host the Iowa State Cyclones this Saturday for senior day?

Thank You Taylor Young, BearsIllustrated, As Taylor Young prepares to play in his final home game as a Baylor Bear, Baylor fans owe the senior linebacker a colossal "thank you".

Sometimes impact can't be measured with career statistics, 40 times, or wins. Coaches, scouts, and fans often speak of immeasurable, non-statistical factors when recalling their favorite players.

When speaking strictly in terms of statistics, Taylor Young is one of Baylor's best all-time.

As the 2017 season is winding down to a close, Young currently has 324 total career tackles, 38.5 for loss and 14.5 for a sack. Those numbers are enough for the 5'9 wrecking ball to be considered one of Baylor's all-time greats. He'll finish top-10 in school history in tackles, and could be Baylor's all-time sacks leader with three more sacks.

He's earned his place in school history next to the likes of Mike Singletary, James Francis, Joe Pawelek, and Bryce Hager.
