Team Notes 

The Baylor Bears have a fluid lineup headed up by sophomore powerhouse, Juan Benitez. They started the season ranked #22 but have climbed as high as #3- knocking UVA out of the top 3. The Baylor Bears started out their season with a bang and won their first 7 matches. A few of their most notable wins this season include: 2 wins against current #10 Texas A&M, #6 USC and #7 Texas.

The Bears ended their season this week with a loss to Texas Tech. Ironically, they will face Tech in the first round of the Big 12 Championships on Thursday, April 27.
