The Baylor Lady Bears slipped to 4th in the final coaches' poll of the year, though they retained one first place vote. This is the lowest the Lady Bears have been ranked in quite some time, and they finished behind UConn, Notre Dame, and Louisville.

Felix Obi was named the Big 12 Track and Field Male Athlete of the Week after winning the triple jump at the Florida Relays last weekend. Obi is the first Baylor male athlete to win this award since 2009. Baylor did well in the Florida Relays, and junior Erin Atkinson broke Baylor's hammer throw record with her winning throw of 211-5.

15th-ranked Baylor Men's Tennis hosts defending Big 12 champion #12 Oklahoma this Friday in what looks like an even match-up, with both teams having multiple players ranked in the most recent ITA listings. Baylor's Patrick Pradella is ranked 29th in the nation, and is riding a six-match winning streak, while #74 Tony Lupieri has won his last 7 matches.

Former Baylor soccer star Hanna Gilmore made the final roster for Chicago Red Stars, a member of the newly founded National Women's Soccer League. Gilmore survived two rounds of cuts and is one of only 152 players in the league, and represents former coaches Marci and Paul Jobsen's first recruiting class at Baylor.
