When it comes to athletics at Baylor, we’re proud that our teams not only win — they win with integrity.
Baylor tennis is one good example of that; Baylor golf is another. Head coach Greg Priest’s men’s golfers will make their 13th consecutive NCAA postseason appearance (including each of Priest’s seven years at the helm) when the 2010 tournament begins next week. The Lady Bear golfers, led by head coach Sylvia Ferdon, have also compiled a nice run, earning NCAA regional bids in 10 of the past 11 seasons.
But their success isn’t limited to the links; these student-athletes also excel in the classroom. Both the men’s and women’s golf teams received public recognition awards from the NCAA this week for having Academic Progress Rates (APR) scores which rank among the top 10 percent within their sport. Ferdon’s women actually received the honor for the second year in a row. Both the men and women registered perfect 1.000 APR scores this year.
Sic ’em, Baylor golf!
