IRVING, Texas – For the first time since 2001, the Baylor soccer team had multiple players recognized on the All-Big 12 team as Carlie Davis, Dana Larsen and Kat Ludlow earned a place on the second team, the league office announced Monday.
Davis started all 19 regular-season games for the Bears as a defender, while matching up against the opponent's best offensive player in each contest. The senior is part of a Baylor defense that has set a program record for shutouts in a season with 12. BU has only allowed nine goals all year and leads the Big 12 in goals against average (0.44).
On the offensive side of the ball, Larsen garnered the second-team distinction after leading the Bears in points (23), goals (9), assists (5) and shots (70). The senior forward has had four game-winning goals this season and currently ranks tied for fourth on the all-time Baylor scoring list with 27 goals.
Like Davis, Ludlow has started each game as a part of the record-setting defense. Along with her defensive prowess, the junior is tied for third on the team in points with eight. She has three goals and two assists on the year, while also serving as BU's designated throw-in specialist.
This year marks the first since 1996 that the Bears have had three student-athletes on the second team.
Baylor also had two freshmen, forward Bri Campos and defender Katie Daigle, voted onto the Big 12's All-Newcomer Team.
