WACO, Texas -
The final Baylor soccer game of the season, scheduled for Sunday night vs. Rice, has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled.
Just outside of College Station, halfway between Houston and Waco, the Owls' bus broke down on the side of the road, according to Baylor head coach George Van Linder. The team was unable to find a replacement on short notice that could get the team to Waco for tonight's game, and after both coaches discussed the matter, it was decided to call the game off.
With Rice starting play in the WAC Championships on Thursday, the Owls declined an offer to reschedule the game for Monday.
With Sunday's scheduled finale cancelled, the Bears finished the 2003 season 7-9-2 overall, 2-6-2 in Big 12 play and tied for ninth in the conference in Van Linder's first season at the helm. Season highlights included senior goalkeeper Monica Housden becoming the first keeper in program history to play every minute of the season in net and junior Ginny Rosario-Tull moving into fourth place in the Baylor recordbooks in career points and goals.
