Women's soccer earns first Big 12 team championship for Baylor

Nov. 3, 1998

With its 1-0 win Sunday over the Nebraska Cornhuskers, the Baylor women's soccer team brought home the Big 12 championship in only its third season.

Off an assist from Molly Cameron, Courtney Saunders scored the only goal Baylor would need to win the regular season championship.

This is a monumental accomplishment for the athletic department of the university, especially in light of the fact that this season is only the third season that the team has played competitively in the NCAA.

But the season doesn't stop here.

Friday the team will travel to San Antonio to play in the conference tournament. To guarantee its spot in the NCAA tournament, the Bears will have to repeat the excellence that it has shown up to now.

The No. 16 Bears are almost assured a spot in the NCAA regardless of the team's play in the tournament, but let's make it official.

The women's soccer team has brought athletic excellence to the forefront of the university, and for that we say congratulations.
