Soccer Wins in Ames!
Last night, Baylor soccer traveled to Ames, where they defeated Iowa State 3-2. Freshman of the week Reneta Vargas scored two goals, and senior Elizabeth Kooiman scored her first goal of the season!
Baylor Drops Close One to West Virginia
So. . .last night did not go as we hoped. Special teams had some problems again, and the defense just couldn’t stop West Virginia. Quarterback Blake Shapen left the game in the third quarter after taking a nasty hit while sliding. Drones led the team well for the rest of the game, but it wasn’t enough to offset the defense. Not a pretty game at all, but time to look forward to next week’s matchup against Kansas. Sic ‘Em!

Bears of the Day
The first Bear of the Day is senior Elizabeth Kooiman for scoring her first goal of the season in last night’s win!
Our next Bear of the Day is 747, a cutie bear living in Katmai National Park in Alaska. 747 won Katmai National Park’s Fat Bear Week competition, and now he’s all ready for hibernation. Shoutout to 747, bear of the people.
Congratulations to 747, our 2022 #FatBearWeek champion! Though he may be blissfully unaware of his two titles, the gains are real. In the bear world, fat is fit and these chunky contenders have been working tirelessly to pack on the pounds necessary for survival. pic.twitter.com/ec8CIAgyEU— Katmai National Park (@KatmaiNPS) October 12, 2022
Have a great weekend everyone!
