WACO, Texas - Baylor Acrobatics and Tumbling will compete in its second meet of the National Collegiate Acrobatics and Tumbling Association (NCATA) season when the Bears (0-1) travel to Eugene, Ore., to take on Oregon (2-0) at 3 p.m. CT Sunday.
"I feel really good about this meet," head coach LaPrise Harris-Williams said. "The girls are prepared for it. We sustained a few injuries, but we're going to come out of this meet much better than we did at Azusa Pacific, and that's all we can ask for. We're just trying to get through the season, make sure our girls are united and unified and have a good time competing."
The Bears are returning to action after a 12-point loss to Azusa Pacific. Harris-Williams, who is in her first season with the Bears, said she's made changes to the team's practice routines.
"We were able to do more repetitions to prepare for this meet," Harris-Williams said. "We had time to know what our girls could do and get a full run through of all the events."
The Bears compete again on March 11 at 1 p.m. CT against Fairmont State and Quinnipiac in Fairmont, W.V. Baylor returns home to host Maryland at the Ferrell Center on March 24 for its first home meet of the season. Baylor will also be hosting the NCATA National Championships in Waco on April 26-28. All NCATA events are sanctioned through USA Gymnastics.
