Baylor acrobatics & tumbling posted five National Collegiate Acrobatics and Tumbling Association (NCATA) individual event national titles to lead all schools. The Bears claimed the seven-element acro heat, pyramid twist heat, tumbling duo heat, tumbling trio heat and tumbling aerial heat.

In the seven-element acro heat, Ceara Smith, Kiara Nowlin, Allie Steele and Kaelyn Cowan earned the win with a 9.75. The quartet’s performance marked the fourth time winning an acro event title for BU and first in the seven-element heat.

In the pyramid twist heat, Allie Alaman, Kaelyn Cowan, Jena Fisher, Lauren Sturm, Toni Bronisevsky, Madison Sorley, Meredith Aldis, Miranda Girourard, Allie Williams, Anna Webb, Ceara Smith and Bailey Hollier won with a 9.80. The group posted the program’s fourth pyramid event title and second twist heat title (2015).

In the tumbling duo heat, Lauren Sturm and Kaylee Adams scored a 9.85 for Baylor’s 12th tumbling event title and third duo title (2015, 2016).

In the tumbling trio heat, Kiara Nowlin, Mary Berdis and Elise Manning notched a 9.65 for the Bears’ 13th tumbling event title and third trio title (2013, 2015).
