WACO - The Baylor softball team finished fourth in the final polls of 2011, marking its highest ever ranking in program history. The Lady Bears were fourth in both the USA Today/NFCA and ESPN.com/USA Softball Collegiate Top 25 polls.

BU finished as the highest ranking Big 12 school with Missouri (6th), Oklahoma (7th) and Oklahoma State (8th) rounding out the conference's top-10 teams.

Baylor advanced to the semifinals of the Women's College World Series for the first time, falling to eventual national champion, Arizona State. The Lady Bears finished with a record of 47-15, the fourth most wins in school history. BU closed the season winning 11 of its last 14 games and going 7-3 in postseason play.

The Lady Bears will return nine players to the 2012 squad that started at least once in the WCWS, including All-American Whitney Canion, unanimous All-Big 12 selection, Kathy Shelton and second-team all-conference picks, Megan Turk and Kayce Walker.
