Baylor Softball Posts Nine to Academic All-Big 12 Team

WACO, Texas – Baylor softball landed nine student-athletes on the 55-member Academic All-Big 12 Softball Team, including eight first team honorees, announced Thursday by the conference office.

The Lady Bears tied with Texas for the most first team honorees, trailing only Oklahoma State’s 10 total selections for most overall in the conference.

Baylor has had nine or more selections to the Academic All-Big 12 team in each of the last four years, the only team in the conference to do so.

First team members consist of those who have maintained a 3.20 or better GPA while the second team selections hold a 3.00 to 3.19 GPA.

To qualify, student-athletes must maintain a 3.00 GPA or higher either cumulative or the two previous semesters and must have participated in 60 percent of their team’s scheduled contests.

Freshmen and transfers are not eligible in their first year of academic residence. Senior student-athletes who have participated for a minimum of two years and meet all the criteria except percent of participation are also eligible.
