Women's Golf at NCAA National Championship
Baylor Women's Golf, led by Hayley Davis, won the San Antonio Regional rather easily to advance to the national round in Bradenton, Florida. There will be three days of competition, beginning tomorrow morning and running through Monday. The 24 teams competing include No. 18 Baylor, the entire top 14, and 12 individuals who qualified as individuals despite their schools missing out.
Despite their seemingly row rank in comparison to the other competitors, Baylor likely has the most momentum of any major program. Good luck, ladies!
What's Left of Tennis
Not much, sadly. Julian Lenz was upset yesterday in singles play and Max Tchoutakian fell as well, leaving Tony Lupieri as Baylor's lone representative in singles competition after his comeback upset over Oklahoma's Axel Alvarez, ranked as the best player in the country. With the top three individuals eliminated, the singles competition is anyone's to take, and Lupieri is just as capable as the next guy.
In doubles, the pairing of Julian Lenz and Diego Galeano is still alive and kicking after eliminating the Aggies yesterday. They're the seventh-ranked duo and head into the round of 16 today.
The women are doing reasonably well. Ema Burgic took own Madison Westby of Southern Cal in two sets to advance to the round of 16, and Burgic and Shankle's doubles team eliminated Alabama's finest to move on to the doubles round of 16.
Baylor Tennis's four remaining shots at singles and doubles national titles are hanging on for dear life today. Follow @BaylorMTennis and @BaylorWTennis on twitter for live updates. Actually, you know what? I'm gonna embed them here for you. Embedding an entire twitter feed is fun.
Baseball Facing Elimination from Big 12 Tournament
Ah, it was nearly glorious. Texas took a 3-0 lead into the top of the ninth, but Baylor managed to tie it up with a Mitch Price 3-run homer. It wasn't meant to be though, as Texas ended it with a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth. Baylor's chance to sow complete and total chaos in the Big 12 tournament is likely done for unless the Bears can pull off another upset against No. 4 Texas Tech today at 3:15 on FSSW.
The good news? After Baylor upset TCU on Wednesday, the Horned Frogs tripped, fell off the cliff, and careened into Texas Tech, who absolutely shredded the top seeded Frogs and eliminated them from title contention. Good on you, Tech. Now be gentle.
