Baylor A&T earns national POTW honors

The Bears have won 13 all-time weekly awards from the NCATA, all under fourth-year head coach Felecia Mulkey. BU's five honors this season have already broken the program record set in 2017 (four).

The Frisco, Texas, native competed in 10 heats during BU’s win Saturday vs. No. 2 Oregon, and the Bears won seven of them and tied in one. In those 10 heats, Sturm helped Baylor tie or beat its season high in seven of the heats. She also competed in all six events and helped the Bears score their first 10.00 of the season (compulsory heat three).
