Baylor softball will begin its season in Clearwater, Fla., at the NFCA Lead Off Classic. The five-game series will feature matchups with No. 23 Auburn, Louisville, Missouri, Missouri State and an exhibition with the U.S. National Team.
After the squad missed the postseason for the first time in the past nine years, the team is looking toward a return this season. The Big 12 coaches picked the Lady Bears fifth in the preseason conference poll, and senior catcher Taylor Ellis said they’re ready for a fresh start.
“We’re excited to turn a new page,” Ellis said.
