BAYLOR QUICK NOTES
* Entering the home stretch of the 2018 regular season and back half of Big 12 play, the Baylor squad controls its own destiny in the mix for a regular season title, tied for first in the conference standings with a 4-1 record.
* Baylor holds a 12-10-3 record in the all-time series, including a 6-2-0 mark under sixth-year head coach Paul Jobson.
* Baylor checked in at No. 25 in the first NCAA RPI rankings, the highest opening ranking since the NCAA began reporting weekly standings in 2011. BU moved up to No. 8 this week, setting a new program record.
* Baylor rejoined the Top 25, moving up to No. 14 after a historic win over then-No.16 West Virginia. The Bears handed the Mountaineers their first-ever home loss since joining the Big 12 and was the first win for BU over WVU.
* Senior forward Jackie Crowther earned BU’s first Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week selection in 2018, rewarded in week seven for a two-goal effort vs. Texas Tech, the first and only Big 12 scorer to have a multi-goal effort in a conference match.
* Freshman Giuliana Cunningham was named the Big 12 Freshman of the week for week five, scoring both of BU’s game-winning goals over the weekend in a pair of 2-0 victories.
* Sophomore Jennifer Wandt earned Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week honors in both weeks five and seven, extending her home shutout streak at Betty Lou to 450:00 minutes, maintaining a clean sheet through the first six home matches of the season.
* Senior midfielder Julie James was named one of 30 candidates for the Senior CLASS Award, recognizing excellence in community, classroom, character and competition. James is the first candidate for the award in program history.

* Jackie Crowther and Giuliana Cunningham scored goals within just 20 seconds of each other in the win over Nebraska, the quickest consecutive goals in program history.
