STORYLINES

• Baylor will have a total of 28 entries in the field at the NCAA West Preliminary Rounds. The men and women each have 14 entries that will be vying for a top-12 spot that earns berth to the NCAA Finals site in Des Moines, Iowa, June 6-9.

• Baylor is currently ranked No. 21 in the NCAA on the women's side and No. 24 on the men's side. The BU women are one of seven Big 12 teams in the top 25, while the BU men are one of the league's six in the top 25.

• In its last meet, Baylor's women placed fourth and the men were sixth at the Big 12 Outdoor Championship in Manhattan, Kan. BU combined for a total of 11 top-three finishes at the conference meet.

• Baylor totaled 39 all-Big 12 honors at the league championship, coming from a total of 24 competitors who placed in their respective event's top eight. Baylor's women garnered 20, while the men posted 19.

• Baylor will again be without the services of three-time Big 12 champion and NCAA All-American hurdler Tiffani McReynolds, who suffered a leg injury earlier this season at the Michael Johnson Dr Pepper Classic in Waco on April 21.

• In the classroom, Baylor has had a record year with a total of 41 on the Academic All-Big 12 teams, including 25 on the women's side and 16 more on the men's side. Of those 41, 13 earned the honor for at least the second time.

• BU has seen two more school records fall this outdoor season. Junior Skylar White shattered the five-year-old discus record with a toss of 189-2, while sophomore Erin Atkinson broke the hammer record by 41 feet at 204-1.
