Baylor Acrobatics & Tumbling wins 8th (!!!!!!!!) straight national title
On Saturday, Baylor Acrobatics & Tumbling won its eighth — EIGHTH!!!!!!!! — straight national title. At some point, a run of success like this becomes hard to even comprehend.
The eight straight championships actually dates back to 2015, since there was no championship in 2020 due to COVID. Over those nine seasons, head coach Felecia Mulkey’s squad has gone an incredible 87-2.
The Bears were led by NCATA Most Outstanding Athlete of the Year Kamryn Kitchens, a senior who also earned her second NCATA All-America selection and her third NCATA Academic All-America honor. This marks the seventh time since 2015 that a Baylor Bear has been named the national A&T athlete of the year.
“Thank you, Baylor Family, for supporting and providing our Bears with an amazing student-athlete experience!” Mulkey tweeted after the championship. “It truly does take a village. I do not take for granted that I work at the best University with amazing humans!”
For those who are wondering, this marks Baylor Athletics’ 14th national championship. In addition to A&T’s eight wins, Baylor has also won team national titles in men’s basketball (2021), women’s basketball (2005, 2012 & 2019), men’s tennis (2004) and equestrian (2012).
Sic ’em, Baylor Acrobatics & Tumbling!
