Daily Bears Report 05.13.2013

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Baylor Softball will be going to the NCAA Championship, as it was announced yesterday that the Lady Bears will play Arizona in College Station in a regional match-up on May 17th. No. 16/22 Baylor finishes their season with a 39-15 record, though only 10-8 in conference, with their extra inning loss yesterday to 7/6th ranked Texas. The Lady Bears left 10 baserunners on throughout the nine-inning game, and a complete game of stellar pitching by Whitney Canion wasn't enough to earn the win.

13th-ranked Baylor Men's Tennis advanced out of regional play, defeating Tulsa 4-2 for a trip to the Round of Sixteen. This is the 12th consecutive season that men's tennis has advanced to the semifinals of the NCAA tournament, and they are 14-0 in the last round of regional play, all-time. This win was also the first win of the season for the Bears over the Golden Hurricane, and comes despite losing the doubles point.

Baylor Women's Tennis fell 4-2 to 11th-ranked Northwestern in the second round of the NCAA Championships on Saturday, ending their season at 17-15 overall. The regular season Big 12 Champions were swept in the doubles point, and could only post points from 10th ranked Ema Burgic and junior Jordaan Sanford on the day. Burgic finishes the season with an excellent record of 25-5 in Baylor's top singles spot, and will compete alongside Victoria Kisialeva in the NCAA Individual Championships, held in late May.

Baylor Women's Golf finished one stroke out of a NCAA National Championship berth, placing ninth in the West Regional after shooting 20-over-par at the Stanford Golf Course. Baylor also finished out of the individual advancement, with their top two golfers tying for 33rd place at +9. The Lady Bears had several members of their team bring home individual medals this year, including freshman Lauren Taylor's first place finish at the Big 12 Championships.

RGIII is still supporting his Baylor teammates, giving advice to his former receiver Terrence Williams, despite the latter being a member of the Redskins' division rival Cowboys.

Finally, because it's my birthday, and I can finish this out with anything I choose: have an old but good video from OK Go.
