    STORYLINES

    Baylor returns a total of 12 All-Big 12 performers to the Big 12 Indoor Championships, including defending champions Tiffani McReynolds (60H) and the men's distance medley relay team that won for the second year in a row.
    Heading into the Big 12 Indoor Championships, the Bears have 31 individual marks among the top 10 in the conference, which is five more than entering last season's indoor conference meet. The list includes four league-leading marks.
    Baylor's men and women each own two league-leading marks apiece. For the women, the distance medley relay and Tiffani McReynolds (60H) each lead the Big 12. On the men's side, the 4x400-meter relay and Patrick Schoenball (1,000) top the league.
    Seven own multiple top-10 Big 12 marks: Everett Walker (60, 200), Blake Heriot (200, 400, 4x400), Zwede Hewitt (200, 400, 4x400), Patrick Schoenball (800, 1000), Gavyn Nero (800, 1000), Tiffani McReynolds (60, 60H), and Jessica Ubanyionwu (LJ, TJ).
    Baylor's throwing duo of Skylar White (shot put) and Erin Atkinson (weight throw) has combined for four school-record performances and seven wins in 2012. Each is ranked second in the Big 12 in their respective event, as well as top 11 in NCAA.
    Atkinson has won the weight throw in all four meets entered and has a best of 67-9, nine feet better than the previous BU record. White has won three meets, and reset her own school record to 56-10, an NCAA automatic qualifying mark.
    Baylor has a total of eight individual marks ranked among the nation's top 25 heading into the the conference championship weekend. Of those marks, four are ranked in the top 10 among NCAA competitors.
    As a team, Baylor has won 16 individual events this season, including 14 from the women's squad. Along with White and Atkinson's seven total wins, sophomore Tiffani McReynolds (60H) and freshman Rachel Johnson (3,000m) have each won twice.
    At the last year's Big 12 Indoor Championship in Lincoln, Neb., Baylor collected one victory on each side on the way to a sixth-place team finish on the women's side and a seventh-place finish on the men's side.
    Head coach Todd Harbour signed a strong recruiting class on National Signing Day, including six men and five women with state and national champion accolades among them.
