Eugene, Ore. - Baylor Acrobatics & Tumbling was unable to make a comeback after falling behind Oregon early in the meet, and the Ducks knocked off the Bears 287.115-267.22 on Sunday afternoon at Matthew Knight Arena.

"We competed better today than we did at (Azusa Pacific) as a whole, as a team," head coach LaPrise Harris-Williams said. "We did sustain one injury, so we had to make some minor alterations, but overall I think the girls performed quite well. We just have to make sure we can get in there and do more repetitions."

Baylor began the meet with a 39.5-38.0 loss in Compulsories. Oregon stretched the lead to 68.1-62.98 after a strong performance in the Acro event, and the Bears fell behind further after dropping the Pyramid event.

The Ducks held a 98-91.48 lead at the break, but the Bears shortened the gap by winning the first Basket Toss heat 9.55-8.2. The Ducks answered and took the second heat 9.5-9.35, and the teams tied the third heat with a 9.7 score. After four of six events, Oregon held the lead at 125.4-120.08.

Baylor dropped all six Tumbling heats, extending the Ducks' lead to 183.53-173.78. Oregon held a commanding 9.75-point lead heading into the final event - the Team Routine.

The Bears scored 94.34 in the Team Routine, but fell short to Oregon's 103.59. The 9.25-point margin of victory in the final event gave Oregon a 287.115-267.22 win over the Bears.

Baylor's next meet is March 11 when the Bears travel to Fairmont, W.V. for a tri-meet against Fairmont State and Quinnipiac. Baylor hosts its first home meet of the season when Maryland comes to the Ferrell Center on March 24.
