Forward Kristin Ruef of Plano signed with the Baylor soccer team on Wednesday, raising the total number of signees to eight.

Ruef played three years of varsity soccer at Plano East Senior High School and was the second-leading scorer on her team.

The Baylor women's tennis team is going somewhere they have never been --Wisconsin.

The Lady Bears will be playing in the U. S. Tennis Association/Indoor Tennis Association Women's National Team Indoor Championships, hosted by the University of Wisconsin.

The No. 17-ranked Bears will face No. 1-ranked Stanford University today in the first round of the tournament.

Baylor joins top teams such as No. 2 University of Georgia, No. 7 Pepperdine University, No. 11 Notre Dame University, No. 12 Vanderbilt University, and the University of Tennessee.

This is the first appearance by Baylor in the prestigious tournament, completing a full circle for head Coach David Luedtke, who grew up in Oshkosh, Wis. He played collegiate tennis at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, where he won the state university doubles championship in 1982 and 1983.

Luedtke began his coaching career at his alma mater as an assistant before coming to Baylor in 1987.
