IRVING, Texas - Baylor soccer's Bri Campos and Kat Ludlow were selected to the Preseason All-Big 12 Team, the league announced on Thursday. The pair gives Baylor its first preseason all-league honorees since 2003 and seven overall.
Campos, a sophomore forward, is coming off a successful freshman season and summer stint with Mexico's U-20 National Team. She was a Big 12 All-Newcomer Team selection in 2012 after accumulating 10 points on four assists and three goals, including two game-winners, in 24 matches.
Ludlow was chosen to the Big 12 All-Tournament Team, Second Team NSCAA All-Central Region, First Team Academic All-Big 12 and Second Team All-Big 12 in 2012. The senior defender notched career highs of three goals and three assists for nine points last season.
Voted on by the league's coaches, the Bears are one of three teams with multiple choices on the 12-member team. The last time Baylor had a player recognized in the preseason was defender Melissa Humke in 2003. Prior to then, defender Tamura Crawley (2002, 2001), defender Breanna Boyd (2001) and Dawn Greathouse (2000) all garnered the honor, which started in 2000.
Baylor, which is ranked 14th in the BennettRank preseason poll, begins the 2013 season with a home match against UTSA on Aug. 23. Along with seven newcomers, the Bears return 22 players from the historic 2012 team that won Baylor's first Big 12 Championship title, posted the best record in program history (19-1-5) and advanced further in the NCAA Championship (Sweet 16) than any other BU team.
