Baylor head coach Ellen White on the Bears' performance
"The girls rode great today, and against tough competition. KSU did not mess up, and there was just a few doors left open for us. I was really proud of our horses I thought they did a great job today too. The girls really rose to the occasion."
The Bears resume competition Oct. 26, taking on Big 12 foe, No. 5 Oklahoma State at 11 a.m. at the Willis Family Equestrian Center.
