Baylor reports fewer sexual assaults PHOEBE SUY Staff Writer Baylor reported 11 on-campus rapes in 2016, according to the 2017 Annual Fire Safety and Security Report, which was released October 1. This is a significant shift from the 23 sexual assaults reported in 2015. Clery compliance manager Shelley Deats said nine of the reports from 2015 were cases from a few years prior that were just now being

brought to the surface. In late 2014, Baylor hired their first full-time Title IX coordinator, and in early 2015 Deats was hired as the first Clery compliance manager. “Over the past two years, Baylor’s Title IX Office has made tremendous strides related to prevention, education and responding to sexual assault within our campus community through the It’s On Us BU Campaign,” the university said in a statement. “Some of the many efforts campus-wide have included bystander

intervention training for all incoming freshmen and transfer students, a full-time training and prevention specialist and an updated Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment and Interpersonal Violence Policy based on national best practices. Baylor University remains committed to undergirding these efforts as we work each and every day to eradicate the scourge of interpersonal violence from our campus community.” Deats said she believes that as people

became educated about the resources available to them, they felt more comfortable coming forward and reporting crimes or assaults, accounting for the spike in numbers in 2015 to 23 reports. The number of reported on-campus rapes in 2014 was five. “We saw that slide come back down again this year because we’re not collecting a lot of older data like we were last year,” Deats said.

Liquor law violations spike at BU in 2016 JULIA VERGARA Staff Writer The number of liquor law violations at Baylor increased over the past two years, according to the 2017 Annual Safety and Security Report. There has been a 39.5 percent increase in the number of people arrested for campus liquor law violations from 2015 and a 76 percent increase from 2014. In 2014, 72 people were arrested and nine people received a judicial referral for on campus liquor law violations. In 2015, 91 people were arrested and 11 people received a judicial referral. In 2016, those numbers had increased to 127 arrests and 31 judicial referrals. The Baylor University alcohol and drug policy states that it is a violation for anyone to possess, use or be under the influence of an alcoholic beverage on campus or at a university-related activity off campus. A violation of this policy results in disciplinary action which can range from a warning to expulsion. According to Judicial Affairs website, alcohol violations accounted for 37 percent of all misconduct violations adjudicated by Judicial Affairs and 77 percent of disciplinary suspensions were alcohol or drug related for the 2015-2016 academic school year.

JAILHOUSE ROCK Students are shocked when they find out there has been another murder — Mrs. Jane Deux. On Friday, students participated in an interactive murder mystery at the Mayborn Museum.

Students solve mayhem at Mayborn JULIA VERGARA Staff Writer The Mayborn Museum brought “mayhem” to Baylor on Friday night with an interactive mystery event revolving around the shocking murder of fictional movie director Jon Deux. According to the storyline, Deux was on the Mayborn Museum set, supposedly walking toward the Rotunda to meet his wife when the

whole cast received a text containing a picture of his dead body. The museum complex was locked down immediately after the murder occurred — meaning the murderer was still inside. Around 300 Baylor students, with the help of Detective Shawn Womack (Kyle Moore), set out to solve the “Mayhem at the Mayborn.” The interactive event took place from 7 to 9 p.m. The characters were portrayed by museum staff who answered students’ questions

throughout the evening. Students used the characters’ answers and clues from the detective to figure out who murdered the director and why they did it. The murder suspects included the director’s wife Jane Deux (Lesa Bush), assistant director Fred McDermott (Sam Cox), Hollywood agent Betsy Tyler (Anna McKay), janitor Barty M.

We want to hear it. Send us your thoughts:



Don’t forget to express love Fifty-eight people were gunned down on Oct. 1 in Las Vegas during a music festival as country singer Jason Aldean performed. The gunman pointed his rifles through two 32nd-floor windows of the Mandalay Bay hotel gunning down innocent mother, fathers, sons and daughters. This was the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. Many of the victims’ last words were “I love you.” Jack Beaton, 54 from Bakersfield, Calif., shielded his wife’s body with his own when the barrages of gunfire began. He was shot, but he was able to tell his wife that he loved her one last time as he bled out. Beaton and his wife were celebrating their 23rd wedding anniversary. We can never say “I love you” too many times. Simple and innocent acts like getting on the highway or, in this case, going to a concert, can end in unthinkable tragedies. We should hold our relationships, both familial and intimate, above everything else because in this world, life is but a whisper. Go above and beyond to show someone you care. Surprise your parents with a visit home. Make people smile more than you make people frown. And say “I love you” so much you don’t even think about it; let those three words fly out of your mouth and into someone else’s heart. We need to collectively think about how we express and share love. October is domestic violence awareness month and one of their largest campaign slogans is “Love Shouldn’t Hurt.” Love should be uplifting and liberating and not contorted with violence and manipulation. As human beings, we have an overwhelming desire to be

constant affection and attention performed badly in cognitive tests compared to infants who received adequate amounts. Interaction and physical contact are one of the several ways love can be expressed. Although money can’t buy love, we can use money to gift the people we love and to spend quality time with them. Michael Norton, professor of business administration at Harvard University, said, during his TedTalk in November 2011 called “How to buy happiness,” that it doesn’t matter how much money you spend as long as you spend it on somebody else. Instead of spending your money on yourself, take a sibling to the movies or buy your mom the gift she is always talking herself out of getting. Lavish the people you love with gifts or experiences. Beyond money and physical contact, love is honesty, kind and simple. Admitting love is the greatest kindness you can give to someone. There are so many ways to say I love you, but the most profound is vocalizing that powerful feeling. There is no time like the present to say, “I love you.” With FaceTime, Apple watches and simple phone calls, it is so easy to say I love you. In the 21st century, we do not have the hurdles of unreliable communication and distance to jump over. Life is precious and gone in an instant. Never in life do you want to think, “If only I had one more chance,” or “If only I had said.” Rewon Shimray | Cartoonist Horrific tragedies like the Las Vegas shooting bring clarity to our own loved and cared for. It’s in our nature, and we crave nurturing relationships with the world and with others. We have the time from the day we’re born.

Start having discussions that are uncomfortable MEGAN RULE Opinion Editor One of the scariest conversation starters is, “Hey, we need to talk.” My palms start sweating, my heart beats a little faster and I immediately panic and think back to everything I’ve done or said in the past few days that could summon such a serious conversation. Why are we, as college students, so afraid to speak in such mature settings? Why do we prefer conversations with memes and emojis as opposed to actual emotions and issues? Why do we prefer to passiveaggresively leave a person on read rather than telling them that our feelings are hurt or we disagree and want to delve deeper? Social media allows everyone to share their opinion, but it seems that today, people compete to see who can be the most offended. No one speaks their mind, so as soon as someone does, flags are raised and offense is being called. Words are misconstrued and messages are lost in translation because communication skills are lacking. Now, we don’t know what to react over and when we cross the line of overreacting. Opinions get shut down and society becomes hyper-sensitive. Creativity is no longer being sparked but instead fizzling out. The popular opinion, the thoughts of the masses, have taken over with the prevalence of social media and dissenting thoughts are silenced or attacked. Personally speaking, I tend to lean more on the conservative side. Coming from Connecticut and being a college student, I’m used to being the red drop in a blue pool. However, when I’m with my friends and peers, I feel more comfortable

with light-hearted conversation topics such as how delicious someones food looked on their Snapchat, or how one of us just “took another L” on an exam. Once the topic shifts to who our president is or whether NFL players should be kneeling, I squirm. I don’t want to kill our vibe by saying I disagree with anything, so I get awkwardly quiet. Social media has changed the landscape of communication, but thats not breaking news for anyone. However, I’ve noticed that as I’ve gotten older and technology advances at exponential rates, communication in person is worsening. Not only are the real-world topics avoided like the plague, but friends would much rather text me when something is going on. If they say “We need to talk,” I know it’s serious because talking in person hardly ever happens. The lack of maturity with confronting issues and having cultured conversations is mind-blowing. How can we be expected to function properly in the adult world if we get scared to talk about politics with someone who disagrees, or if we get scared to break up with our significant other in person? Conversations are no longer intentional, but unwilling. Faceto-face talking is a step outside of the comfort zone and no one wants to step on anyones toes, so we all stay silent. I’ve fallen guilty of this too. I’m a 19-year-old girl who has crushes on boys and doesn’t want to tell them for fear of being rejected by my crush. I’m a 19-year-old girl who gets in catty fights with girlfriends and doesn’t want to stand up for myself or continue with drama for fear of losing the friendship. However, I, like the rest of this generation, need to bite the bullet and stop hiding behind the screen. Lets prepare ourselves for the real, face-to-face water cooler gossip that exists in the real world. Megan is a junior journalism major from Stamford, Conn.

Be more accepting of tattoos in workplaces HOLLY LUTTRELL Reporter When entering the workforce, your experience and abilities are key to landing a job and beginning your career. Yet, while your resume is important, the way you present yourself in a professional environment can sometimes make or break you. In many careers, a professional wardrobe is a must. More often than not, this includes hiding any tattoos on your body. Historically, there has been a social stigma associated with tattoos. They have been associated with grittiness, criminal activity, disregard for personal appearance or a general inability to hold a professional position. This stigma has carried over into the workforce, leading to the strict policies against ink we see today. The next generation of workers, however, has the ability to change this. It is time to break the stigma and become more accepting of tattoos in our evolving workplaces. According to a 2010 study conducted by the Pew Research Center, approximately 40 percent of citizens over the age of 18 have at least one tattoo. With this many members of society sporting them, the idea that every individual who has a tattoo cannot be a successful professional is misguided. This freedom, of course, would have to come with limitations. Allowing tattoos in the workplace would open conversations about obscenity and what is appropriate to show in a professional setting.

This dialogue over appropriateness has often closed down the issue. Rather than discuss what tattoos would be acceptable or not, it has been deemed easier to ban them outright. This ban is where a stigma is born. When we insist employees cover all tattoos, we label people with tattoos all with the uninformed, negative connotation that plagues the workforce. In order to take steps to change this and be more accepting of the personal expressions of employees, tattoos should be held to the same standards as clothing. If you would not wear the image on an article of clothing or say what is written on your tattoo out loud, it should not be displayed at work. Rather than creating a ban on a form of expression that such a large portion of the population uses, we should evaluate them on a case-by-case basis so as not to immediately categorize each tattoo as a negative thing. Workplace standards have evolved as society has progressed to become more accepting of personal forms of expression. In today’s society, a ban on tattoos feels archaic. It is no longer indicative of the comfortable work spaces we should strive to provide. When we put a ban on all tattoos, we are perpetuating the negative stigma behind them. A tattoo that is appropriate for the workplace is nothing to be ashamed of, and it should not be treated as such. An employee’s performance is in no way affected by whether or not they have ink on their body. Now it is time our workplace policies changed to demonstrate this. Holly is a senior journalism major from Orange, Calif.

Hack Attack

Sorority hopes to educate on signs of breast cancer

Baylor faces, looks to deter cyberthreats


Jessica Babb | Broadcast Managing Editor

DIDI MARTINEZ Digital Managing Editor

RISE IN CYBERATTACKS Baylor held a Cyber Day on Friday that included a panel discussion with various leaders in the cybersecurity world that weighed in on the issues facing the U.S. in this technology-centered age.

College campuses have become hotbeds for cyberattacks as hackers seek to will soon be required to use two-factor infiltrate student accounts and gain access authentication to gain access to their email accounts. In the meantime, Baylor ITS is to university information. Since April 1, Baylor has reported using a tool called Microsoft Advanced that more than 2,000 student accounts Threat Protection, which rewrites have been compromised through security phishing website URLs and makes them breaches, according to Jon Allen, Baylor’s inaccessible. Compared to the recent Equifax and chief information security officer. SEC data breaches, it may seem like “The thing we’ve been struggling with the most is phishing,” Allen said, referring institutions of higher learning would to the Baylor email lookalikes that have considered “small fish” for potential circulated around campus. “We’ve really hackers. However, Dr. Jeff Donahoo, been implementing a lot of tools to try a Baylor computer science professor to knock down on the number of those who specializes in networking and messages coming through and if your cybersecurity, said there’s plenty to gain password is compromised, making sure from hacking into university systems. “The university has all sorts of personal that the impact of that is much less.” information that However, a I can then use to two-factor auimpersonate a thentication sysstudent and get a tem has yet to car loan or get a be set in place credit card,” Dofor university nahoo said. email accounts, Because a a complaint Alvariety of conlen said the ITS sumer accounts department is allow individwell aware of. uals to recov“We didn’t er passwords do two-factor NITA AWATRAMANI | through security on email yet beVERIZON SENIOR MANAGER questions, seemcause that wasn’t FOR ENTERPRISE IDENTITY ingly useless inthe highest risk AND ACCESS MANAGEMENT formation could and the biggest be worth a lot concern,” Allen more. said. “Academ“Information is valuable because I ic processes, Canvas, Box, where we store files and things.

“Russian-speaking hacker” was selling unauthorized access to their systems. Baylor University was not one of the universities listed for this threat. Baylor has yet to detect any major incidents to its systems, Allen said. This, however, doesn’t mean that the university is letting its guard down. “Universities are set in a very unique position in that space,” Allen said. “We have lots of resources, we have really good technology and so while we may not always be the direct target, we could always be leveraged for another attack because a lot of times we’re trusted organizations. And so there’s multiple reasons why we could be targeted and multiple groups who may target us as well.” On Friday, the university held a Cyber Day for the Baylor and Waco community. It included a panel discussion with industry leaders who echoed similar concerns for the state of consumer privacy online. “We are all under constant attack,” said Nita Awatramani, Verizon’s senior manager for enterprise identity and access management. “Up to now, people have been acting out of a place of fear. Don’t become numb, but don’t become paranoid. There’s constant risk you’re going to have to take.” When it comes to using artificial intelligence to eliminate all cyberthreats, its implementation would be unrealistic, according to Richard Berger. “The ‘easy button’ is an illusion,” Berger, who serves as the director of security research at Splunk, said. “There’s so much nuisance into security for AI.” Awatramani concurred, saying,“It’s not that security is not being done. It’s that what is considered security is changing,”

The women of Zeta Tau Alpha held an all-university event on Monday to inform the student body of signs of breast cancer with the Bright Pink organization on Fountain Mall. This event coincided with the month of October and Zeta’s philanthropy, Breast Cancer Education and Awareness. The event provided information on women’s health, self-checks, prevention and screening for early breast and ovarian cancer. In collaboration with the popular fashion line Aerie, gift cards and free giveaways were given to the first 1,000 attendees. Food trucks such as Mad Hasher, Steel City Pops and Heritage Creamery were also present at the event. “We have the ability to cultivate a power conversation that includes raising awareness and education on a disease that is so prevalent today,” Bellingham, Wash., junior Bailey Molnar said. “This event is an opportunity for our campus community to come together and support one another so nobody feels they are fighting this battle alone.” It is Zeta’s hope for this event, and all events they host for their philanthropy, to have individuals become more aware of the risks and signs of breast cancer. Through this event, the organization, Bright Pink, allowed for more people to have knowledge of what breast cancer feels like and what one should do if they believe they might be at risk. “Being prepared is so important in the early stages of cancer because the earlier you can identify it, the greater chance you have of survival,” Killeen junior Maryssa Bradley said. Today there are over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors living in the United States. “When I was a child my grandmother had breast cancer and it wasn’t easy to see her go through that,” Bradley said. “What made it harder, however, was to see how much it affected my father. She made it through and is still here today, but if we hadn’t detected it earlier, she would have had a little bit easier time getting through it.” According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, one in every eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. In the United States alone there are 252,710 women who are diagnosed each year. While it is rare for men to be diagnosed with breast cancer, 2,470 will be diagnosed each year. Through this event, Zeta Tau Alpha stressed the importance of one being able to identify the possible signs and risks of breast and ovarian cancer. Their hope is to help and educate the Baylor community and prevent fellow students from suffering through this disease.

Radio BU makes live comeback COURTNEY SOSNOWSKI Reporter After years off the air, the sound of Baylor is back. Radio BU broadcasted live from the studio in the Bill Daniel Student Center Monday morning. The program was resurrected by motivated students, a few donations for equipment and provisions for licensing rights covered by Baylor Film and Digital Media. Fortunately, a lot of music and equipment remained from Baylor’s former radio program. In 2000, NPR acquired Baylor’s original radio station, KWBU, moving the broadcasting center away from campus. Since then, there has not been a student run radio station. Monday through Friday, Radio BU will feature student DJs who select songs between 9 a.m. and 10 p.m. As of now, there are more than 30 students who volunteer time to manage, host, DJ, promote or produce parts of the show. Waco senior Delany Baum grew up around her grandfather’s radio station. Although she is an environmental science major, her passion for music fueled her to volunteer as a DJ for Radio BU. She plans to give Baylor students a taste of her rock music vibe during her shift three days a week. “We have a whole filing cabinet of albums that we’ve either bought ourselves or people have given to us and I just search it in our computer,” Baum said. “Like if I want to listen to The Killers, I just search ‘The Killers’ and it gives me every song that we have and I just drag and drop on my screen to a little playlist and it just cues it up on my screen one by one by one.” Giving students a voice will be an important aspect of Radio BU. As a student-run organization focused on communication, the station hopes to provide opportunities for Baylor students to give input, as well as to advertise for campus activities. San Antonio

BACK ON THE AIR Valley Mills senior Delany Baum spends time editing the radiocast for BU Radio on Monday afternoon.

sophomore Harrison White, production manager for Radio BU, described Radio BU as “a student’s take on what Baylor is to them rather than Baylor’s take on what it should be to you.” “Everyone listening is probably going to be a student,” White said. “They might as well enjoy it.” Belton senior Brentyn Young co-hosts the talk show “Bearly Functioning,” a sort of variety show, which will air once a week. The hour long segment will feature discussion on sports, entertainment, love and other hot topics. Young got the idea for the show during Baylor’s sexual assault scandal, because he thought that students should have an outlet to give opinions. “For our show we have a part where students can send in stuff. So if there’s anything they’d like us to talk about or if they ever want to have their voice heard

about some issue or anything, our show is probably the place where that would happen,” Young said. “This is going to be a considerably accessible way for students to put their voices out there and say what they need to say.” Next time you pass through the SUB, peek through the widows of the studio across from the office of Multicultural Affairs to get a glimpse of the past and present Baylor in harmony with each other. To tune in or get involved, visit the Radio BU website. “The more people [listening] the better” White said. “Honestly, it just becomes more interactive. Because you know if we get a lot of people a part of the radio, and they have friends and you have more people listening. It becomes more than just a business per se; it’s more of a community.”

Waco library teaches citizens how to find their Native American heritage BROOKE HILL Staff Writer “Looking for the dead, annoying the living.” This is the slogan that the Central Texas Genealogical Society had on their T-shirts as they welcomed guests into Monday’s brown bag lunch discussion titled “Discover your Native American ancestry.” In celebration of Indigenous Peoples Day, this presentation walked attendees through the process of tracing their ancestry back to find ancestors who were part of one of the 567 federally recognized Native American tribes. The presentation focused on the five civilized tribes: The Cherokee, Choctaw, Seminoles, Chickasaw and Muscogee-Creek. At the beginning, speaker Hannah Kubacak debunked several myths surrounding Native American ancestry. She emphasized that Native Americans do not go to college for free and that you can’t just assume an ancestor was a Native American based on a person’s physical characteristics. Kubacak walked audience members through six steps: Do your genealogy, determine possible tribal affiliation, understand requirements for tribal enrollment, find your ancestors on the required documents, apply for a CDIB (Certified Degree of Indian Blood) card



FIND YOUR HERITAGE: Central Texas Genealogical Society to host 17th Annual Genealogy Lock-In from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Oct. 20 at West Waco Library. visit:

and keep researching. Many audience members were intrigued by the idea that the Native Americans owned slaves, who were listed in their roles (tribal roles were created throughout history to enumerate Native Americans of different tribes). Kubacak said Native Americans often owned slaves because it was so common in the South. These former slaves would not be eligible for tribal citizenship because they have a different heritage. “The five civilized tribes, they lived in the South, they owned land in the South, they owned slaves like other people in the South,” Kubacak said “They were also big on trade, so they were also among people who were trading slaves. So then when they moved to Indian territory, those people went with them. All of those people were also removed, which means that when after the Civil War all of those

people became freedmen, and they started to receive tribal annuities just like the Native Americans did.” Attendees were also curious about the benefits of being of Native American heritage. Kubacak explained that each tribe has different benefits. “Some tribes, I think it’s the Spokane tribe, when you turn 18 you get a check and that’s the last you hear from the tribe unless you work for the tribe,” Kubacak said. “For most of the tribes, they have different benefits. Some of them you have to live in that area to receive, some of them you can apply for separately. So they have things like scholarships, Chickasaw Nation has a hospital you can go to if you’re Native American, not just that tribe but any tribe. They have things like different incentives fro kids growing up. If they get good grades they get sent different things like books and iPads, random stuff, so it really depends on the tribe though, because not all tribes have the ability.” Citizens who attended said they felt better informed about how to go about searching for their Native American ancestors. “My daughter is adopted, we adopted her when she was a baby,” Waco resident Donna Moore said. “But she did her DNA and found that she’s 29 percent Native American, so I’m helping her trace her birth lineage to figure out where that came from.”

What you missed: Weekend One ACL provides unique festival experience KAITLYN DeHAVEN Design Editor Weekend one of Austin City Limits delivered artists and savory and sweet treats, it also provided a unique experience for festival-goers, making an effort to ensure the occasion was extremely enjoyable for the diverse audience. One of the services that ACL provided was Americans with Disabilities (ADA) accommodations for those who might not have been able to enjoy the festival otherwise. From sign-language interpretations to special platforms for those with disabilities, ACL encouraged all to enjoy their time at the event.

WEEKEND WONDERLAND Austin City Limits began its weekend celebrations with performances from bands like ROMES and ACL Eats to fill any festival-goers experience. The festival continues Oct. 14 - Oct. 15.

Austin Kiddie Limits welcomes families KAITLYN DeHAVEN Design Editor Although Austin City Limits offers a venue that widely caters to adults, the event also has a kid-friendly venue called Austin Kiddie Limits, where adults can bring their children. Children ages 10 and under get a free pass into the festival, so this space is popular for families. Austin Kiddie Limits provides various attractions for kids to enjoy during their time at the festival. Some of the features include a painting wall, a punk hairdos tent where kids can get their hair painted, a hip-hop workshop, a coloring studio where guests can make vivid creations and even a stage where children’s performers play and act for the kids. AKL offers a Tag-aKid tent where parents can register their children so if they get lost, there is an easy way for parents and children to find one other. The children receive an RFID wristband that tracks their location. In the event that a child is lost, staff can reliably and easily acquire the child’s

location. Lana Anderson, an ACL attendee with a 5-year-old daughter, Anna, said Austin Kiddie Limits has been a great experience for her daughter. “You know what, [Austin Kiddie Limits] rocks,” Anderson said. “This is my eighth or ninth time here out at the festival and Austin Kiddie Limits has been phenomenal for my 5-yearold.” Anderson also said that one of the best parts of AKL is the kid-friendly bathrooms because they are clean and child-sized. Similar to Anderson and her daughter’s experience, 3-year-old Theo, who was dressed as a blue power ranger with Spiderman shoes, said he had a lot of fun at AKL so far. Among the booths AKL showcases is Alex’s Lemonade stand, which has been around since the music festival began 15 years ago. This lemonade stand sells adults and kids alike satisfying drinks, but also has a special cause tied into it. All the proceeds from the lemonade stand go to helping

cure childhood cancer. Lance Thompson, one of two owners of the AKL stand explained how Alex’s Lemonade Stand came to be. “It’s a national organization that this little girl Alex started,” Thompson said. “She had cancer and she passed away a long time ago, but she started this when she was diagnosed with cancer and it’s gone viral around the country. We usually have kids working the table and parents working in the background. It’s awesome.” Thompson said his experience working for Austin Kiddie Limits has been amazing, and he appreciates all the support that comes from the parents and the festival. “They love having us and we love being here. The people are great and donate lots of money and every bit of it goes to kids’ cancer,” Thompson said. Austin Kiddie Limits is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. during Austin City Limits music festival on both weekends. Children and families can enjoy a variety of kid-friendly snacks, activities, games and music.

ROMES debuts selftitled album at ACL BAILEY BRAMMER Editor-in-Chief Few bands can boast growing up and making music together for more than 15 years. However, the soulpop band ROMES, composed of best friends James Tebbitt, Nicolas Amadeus, Andrew Keyes and Jacob Alexander, began creating music after meeting at school in Ireland, and then they decided to form a band a little over two years ago. ROMES performed for the Austin City Limits music festival at 1:30 p.m. Friday at Zilker Park and released its self-titled album the same day. “It’s a beautiful festival, the sun was shining, we had a great stage, great crowd,” Amadeus said. “What more do you want? We just put out our album, so it was kind of like a celebration for us. It was very hot. I kind of felt bad for the people in the crowd because you just look out and see everyone fanning themselves down.” The foursome behind ROMES describes their tunes as upbeat and “feel-good,” and said they’ve heard that their songs are good to dance to

as well as to clean to. While they hope their audience will connect with their messages, the members of ROMES aim to make each other happy just as much as they do their listeners. “We write honest songs,” Keyes said. “If we’re down in our practice basement, and we do something that feels really good, and we all start looking at each other with a goofy smile, like, ‘Oh yeah’ and we get excited about it, then we know it’s good and then we want to share it with people. I think that’s the most important essence of ROMES – just the four of us trying to laugh and make each other smile and enjoy it.” While the band draws its inspiration from multiple styles of music, including disco and funk, Amadeus said hip-hop has also had a heavy effect on its sound. “When we’re on tour, I don’t think I listen to anything outside of the hip-hop realm and I’d say a lot of the rhythms are hip-hop influenced on the album,” Amadeus said. Other inspirations for ROMES include artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Flume and Anderson Paak. While

working on their new album, which was produced and mixed by Tony Hoffer, the ROMES members said the songs that made the album were actually the ones that took the least time to write. “It’s funny, the songs that seem to come together really, really quickly, they were the ones that kind of made the record, the ones that didn’t kind of take a lot of work,” Keyes said. After its ACL debut, ROMES is set to continue touring North America with Mutemath; both bands will perform at 7 p.m. today at the House of Blues in Houston. Alexander said fans can expect enjoyable songs off of ROMES’ new album and hopes that listeners can tell from the music that the band is really just four men trying to have a good time while doing what they love. “I think it’s fair to say we’re best friends, and we’re just trying to have as much fun as possible,” Alexander said. “I think that kind of comes through with the music. We just hope that our audience can in some way connect with the message we’re trying to get across, and on any sort of

ACL Eats offers satisfactory, disappointing festival foods BAILEY BRAMMER Editor-in-Chief Although Austin City Limits music festival is full of a variety of sounds and styles of music, festival-goers can also enjoy locally famous food vendors who serve everything from frozen cookie dough to classic Texas barbecue. Day one of our ACL adventure was loaded with delicious eats, which included macaroni and cheese-filled grilled cheese sandwiches and frozen bananas decorated with all things sweet. With more than 33 unique dining options, days two and three were bound to be just as good, if not better.

REVIEW Trudy’s After waiting in line at security for what seemed like hours, I knew I needed something filling that still embodied the “ACL experience.” The aromas of pizza fresh out of the oven and burgers hot off the grill were tempting, but I decided to try my luck with brisket-covered nachos from Trudy’s Tex-Mex booth, and was incredibly satisfied with my choice. The nachos were brimming with smoky brisket and spicy cheese sauce, along with sour cream, guacamole and salsa. Even though the chips were a little soggy and the toppings a bit cold, every bite had enough flavor to make up for the nacho’s slight shortcomings. The cheese/barbecue combination gave the nachos a nice kick, which was just enough to handle without being overwhelmed by heat.

Tino’s Greek Cafe Following a day of sun and songs, I welcomed anything that promised a memorable bite and would give me the energy I needed to continue for a few more hours. For dinner, I was torn between a chicken tikka masala wrap from Lambda’s Indian Kitchen and a gyro wrap from Tino’s Greek Cafe. After five minutes of deliberation, I selected the latter and was rewarded with my favorite ACL meal thus far. The gyro meat was hot and tender, and was cradled by a soft, warm pita. The wrap was topped with tomatoes, onions, lettuce and Tzadziki sauce, and customers also have the opportunity to drizzle cayenne pepper sauce on their already loaded wraps, which I, Bailey Brammer | Editor-in-Chief of course, took advantage of. Each taste of the wrap brought a new flavor: the creaminess of the Tzadziki, the crispness of the fresh vegetables, the smoke from the pepper sauce and the sweet doughiness of the pita. I was reminded of how much I enjoy Greek cuisine and scolded myself for forgetting how delicious gyros can be.

RECAP from Page 5 Susan Nozick, a volunteer with the ADA accommodations, said they have made a large effort to make it as easy as possible for individuals who need accommodations to experience the festival. “They come right to us and we give them a wristband, they’re allowed a companion on the platform and it just provides them a more comfortable viewing area.” Nozick said. “It allows everyone to enjoy the festival on an equal playing field.” In addition, while ACL strives to give festival-goers an enjoyable, unforgettable experience, they also have a strong commitment to sustainability. The Austin Parks Foundation leads a program for the festival called Rock & Recycle, which ensures that Zilker Park stays green and healthy. There are two unique ways visitors can get involved, the first being more physical and the second being more educational. Manar Hasan, the Rock & Recycle team lead, said the first way visitors can get involved is by filling a bag with recyclables they find on the ground at the park, which usually consists of cups and cans. The second way guests can participate is by going on a scavenger hunt to find 12 decorative recycling cans that have signs next to them with fun facts about the Austin Parks Foundation. After participants turn in their bag of cans or their scavenger hunt sheet, they are then given a T-shirt and are entered in a raffle to win either two tickets to ACL next year or a new bike. Hasan said one of the most interesting pieces of the program is that it also involves local artists from around Austin. “We’re working with Hope Gallery on this. They have commissioned 12 local artists to graffiti on the 12 different recycling bins, that’s why they’re so fancy,” Hasan said. “They were told to draw with their own style but to draw something about recycling or the Austin Parks Foundation and those drawings are then turned into the T-shirt designs.” Two different T-shirt designs are offered each day, for a total of 12 different T-shirt designs throughout the entire festival. Another new service that the festival has added just this year is called “Sober Park.”

Sober Park is run by an organization called Harmonium and is a way newly sober people can get away from the crowds and temptations and talk to volunteers and other people who are also newly sober to get support. Eric K.,* a volunteer at Sober Park, explained how it can be sometimes be hard for people to restrain themselves from their cravings, and this is a safe space where they can come. “It’s a place for people who don’t want to drink to come hang out and get away from the craziness because there are a bunch of people newly sober here and this is a trigger-laden environment,” Eric said. “We’re not getting the publicity that Jay-Z and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are getting, but it’s growing. At one point the tent was full and we didn’t have any chairs.” Sober Park holds meetings at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. each day of the festival. Silent Disco is also a cutting-edge, unique event that ACL has added to their festival. Offered each night from 8 to 10 p.m., Silent Disco puts a twist on a traditional disco by first giving participants headphones that can individually to switch between three DJ’s. Everyone is dancing together while listening to different things. This event brings the fun and dancing of a disco dance party, with the added, convenient bonus of being able to switch channels if one dislikes a song. Keith Kregel, a Silent Disco participant, said that he thought the event was great because it provided music from all ages for people of all ages. “It was intriguing to watch and exciting to participate in,” Kregel said. “It really captivated people are all ages and I definitely enjoyed the time spent dancing with great music and skilled DJs.” Overall, ACL weekend one brought tunes and accommodating fun for the diverse needs of guests in the park. *Eric K. has asked that we keep his last name anonymous in the spirit of his organization.

Skull and Cakeboxes As music dwindled, lights dimmed and crowds dispersed, it was time for dessert. ACL offers few choices for a sweet bite amid savory snacks, and Austin’s Skull and Cakebones’ ice cream “cakewich” seemed to be one of the better options. Described on the menu as “chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream rolled in chocolate chips, toasted coconut and almonds,” this morsel promised tastiness but came up short. The cakewich was small and did not seem worth $7, and the cake itself was slightly dry and seemed as though it had been frozen just a tad bit too long. The ice cream was velvety, but did not have much else going for it flavor-wise that would have made it stand out. A bite that Bailey Brammer | Editor-in-Chief included toppings helped, but the chocolate chips and almonds were almost lost in an overwhelming sense of coconut. I understand it can sometimes be difficult to deliver gourmet snacks under harsh conditions such as a music festival; however, other vendors certainly lived up to their word, which makes me question why Skull and Cakebones cannot. ACL boasts many options for festival-goers when it comes to food. While day two served up my favorite bite of the day with Tino’s Greek Cafe, I was less than impressed with my frosted ice cream sandwich. Of the more than 33 dining choices, though, everyone is sure to find their perfect bite.

SONG-FILLED DAYS The Pruit Symposium celebrated the message of black gospel music Thursday and Friday with a twoday event filled with guest speakers. In the picture above, Dr. Stephen Newby performs a hymn before he begins his keynote presentation entitled “A Theology of African American Sacred Song and Liberation”.

Pruit Symposium explores powerful message within black gospel music CAMERON BOCANEGRA Reporter The Pruit Symposium brought attention to a powerful message with “Singing the Sermon: When the Message and Music Matter.” The event was held Thursday and Friday at Baylor’s Armstrong Browning Library and George W. Truett Theological Seminary. The symposium focused on the importance of appreciating and restoring black gospel music that were transformed from original sermons to songs. To end the symposium’s first day of celebration on Thursday, Stephen Newby, a professor from Seattle Pacific University and featured keynote speaker on “A Theology of African American Sacred Song and Liberation,” led a Gospel Sing at Greater Ebenezer Baptist Church. He had the entire room on their feet, singing and praising and also expressing the necessity of black gospel music to connect a community in worship. “Lifting up this genre of music and bringing it into counterpoint conversations collects different ideas from each speaker, each one a different melody that come together to make new harmony and dissonance,” Newby said. Robert Darden, Baylor professor of journalism, partnered with Baylor Libraries to create the Ray I.

Riley Digitization Center after philanthropist Charles Royce offered to fund the Black Gospel Music Restoration Project. Royce was inspired to fund the project after reading Darden’s 2005 column in The New York Times about his concerns with foundational gospel songs fading away. Restoration of black gospel music by Baylor has been in progress for 10 years now, and the collection has more than 11,000 items with nearly half

of them featured online. “Between the 1940s and 1970s, about 70 percent of black gospel music was lost because of copyright issues,

the civil rights movement and racism — all during the golden age and greatest power [during] the American black drive in gospel music,” Darden said. “If we let this music die, then future generations are going to be harsh.” The second day of panelists on Friday included a case study on singer Fantasia Barrino. The lecture was titled “Somebody Oughta Testify: Black Women, Sacred Music, and the Significance of Social Mediated Testimony,” and it was presented by Ambre Dromgoole, a PhD student in religious studies at Yale University. “Women have the ability to combine secular and spiritual parts in gospel music,” Dromgoole said. “It is empowering, rather than profane. It is divine in gospel style even if the lyrics are not sacred.” “Rev. A. W. Nix and the Recorded Sermon: 19271931” was presented by Terri Brinegar, who addressed how the pair of preaching brothers, Andrew and William Nix, influenced the musician Thomas A. Dorsey eventually led to Dorsey’s conversion to a leader in gospel music and composition. Brinegar, a researcher of vocal styles from Florida University, corrected misconceptions by pointing out vocal differences and traditional qualities of black vocality that restores A.W Nix as an influence and exemplar of those traditions.

“The truth just has to be determined through this research,” Brinegar said. “This kind of music research brings so many people together regardless of skin tone, ages, backgrounds and denomination so that we can all celebrate as one.” The conference concluded with the presenter’s panel recognizing the speakers: Melvin Butler, an ethnomusicologist; Dr. Deborah Smith Pollard, a professor of English literature and humanities at University of Michigan-Dearborn; Jerry Zoltgen, a roots and pop music historian; Corretta Pittman, historian of African American injustice; Ambre Dromgoole, researcher of religious studies; Terri Brinegar, classical music scholar; Lauren Nash and Andrew Virdin, researchers of Harlem Renaissance; and Dr. Stephen Newby, director of composition at Seattle Pacific University. They joined together to recognize their humbling and educational experience, reminding one another that there is more research to be done and it is needed more than ever. “When I was a kid, all I knew was this music,” Darden said. “I heard gospel through the radio every day and it never left my heart, and it’s the same with others. We’re going to make sure it’s never forgotten.”

MAYBORN from Page 1 (Drew Triplett), lead actor Dwight Anderson (Daniel McKay) and lead actress Charlotte Pennynickle (Jess Outten). All suspects were scattered throughout the museum, holding clues to the murder. “You are now fresh on the case and responsible for solving the mystery,” Mayborn Museum staff said to students. “Find out who killed Jon Deux and what their motive was. You will have until 8:40 p.m. to solve the case.” Around 7 p.m., four freshmen [Calista Perez from Sugar Land, Kendall Lockwood from Broomfield, Colo., Gabby Hicks from Spring and Alyssa Zuercher from Frisco] set out to solve the case. They first spoke to the detective, looking for more information about the murder. “All I know right now is he died around 6,” Womack said. “He was foaming at the mouth and pale.” After gaining insight as to how the director died, the four students spoke to lead actress Charlotte Pennynickle, who swore she was in the break area at the time of the murder. She revealed that she had witnessed the director and his wife, Jane, fighting over a death clause and their pre-nuptial agreement earlier that day. She claimed that Jane was angrier than she had ever seen. Later, Hollywood agent Betsy Tyler would confirm that the couple had a pre-nuptial agreement that they often fought over. Next, Perez, Lockwood, Hicks and Zuercher spoke to the victim’s wife Jane Deux, who admitted she had been arguing with her husband and revealed to the students that her husband was having an affair with Pennynickle. The four students then moved on to assistant director Fred McDermott, who told them that he saw a medical envelope on Jon Deux’s desk and had heard him say, “That’s impossible. It must have been 20 years ago.” Based on all the information so far, the four students came up with the hypothesis that the director had recently found out he had a son.

“Maybe the wife killed the husband because she knew the son would get the money,” Perez said. Perez, Lockwood, Hicks and Zuercher spoke to the janitor Barry M. and lead actor Dwight Anderson last. No new information was revealed, but the janitor also confirmed that the married couple fought often. The lead actor said he thought very highly of his costar and refused to believe that Pennynickle would ever have an affair with her director. Once they had spoken to all of the suspects and gathered information about the case, the four students came to the conclusion that although the wife may be too obvious of a choice, she may have conspired with Dwight or hired the janitor to kill her husband. However, a plot twist in the mystery changed everything. At approximately 7:45, the detective announced that there had been a second murder. “Mrs. Jane Deux was found minutes ago pale and foaming at the mouth near the Musical Soundscape hallway,” Womack said. “She was pronounced dead instantly.” Womack added that they had found a medical envelope stained with blood next to her body. However, due to medical privacy laws, he was unable to view the contents of the envelope. Following the announcement, the four freshmen immediately set out to solve the two potential murders. The first suspect they ran into was Betsy Tyler. She offered the students new information and told them that she had found an old newspaper about an actress, Helena Martin, who had allegedly been pregnant with Jon Deux’s baby. The actress was the woman he had left to be with Jane, Tyler said. Perez, Lockwood, Hicks and Zuercher met with the detective but were unsuccessful at acquiring new information. However, the story started to fall into place once the janitor revealed one little detail: His last name is Martin.

MYSTERY Students question assistant director Fred McDermott, played by Sam Cox, at “Murder at the Mayborn” on Friday night at the Mayborn.

The four students said they were excited after finding out the connection and with further questioning, the janitor revealed his mother’s name: Helena Martin. This new information led them to a new hypothesis: Barty is the murderer. He has the means and the motive, they said. “The janitor found out that he was Jon’s son so he goes and he decides to kill Jon so he can get his money,” Hicks said. “He already knows where the chemicals are and he has access to clean up the blood.” She further explained her theory and said that since Jane would have received Jon’s money due to the pre-nuptial, Barty decided to kill her too. “I really liked going around to all the characters,” Zuercher said. “Just asking them questions and seeing how the theory evolved as the night went on.”

At around 8:45 p.m., the detective confirmed that janitor Barty Martin was the culprit. However, the motive was different than what the four students had hypothesized. Rather than killing the victim for money, Martin had been holding a grudge because Jon had left his mother for Jane. “Barty decided to take matters into his own hands once he found out Jon was cheating again,” Womack said. Students who had correctly identified the murderer cheered when the reveal was made. Tomball junior Cassidy Latham, co-director of the event, said that she believes the event was a success. “The students were so involved and really asked some tough questions,” Latham said. “But our actors were well prepared and the event couldn’t have been so successful without their commitment.”

VIOLATIONS from Page 1 Senior Coordinator for Recovery Services Lilly Ettinger said that she believes more consistent enforcement and a larger student population have affected the increase in liquor law violations in 2016. Despite last year’s increase, alcohol use has actually been decreasing in popularity for a long time, Ettinger said. “Alcohol and drug use on the overall have declined for the last twenty years,” Ettinger said. “Most students at Baylor don’t drink.” According to Judicial Affairs statistics, the 2002-2003 school year had a total of 311 alcohol violations and numbers have not reached that

high since. However, alcohol still poses a threat on college students’ lives. One in four college students reports an academic consequence from drinking, Ettinger said. The academic consequences can include anything from skipping class to lower grades or doing poorly on exams. The worst consequences involve death and assault. Ettinger said that a little over 1,800 college students aged 18 to 24 die each year due to unintentional alcohol-related injuries and almost 700,000 assaults between students 18 to 24 involve alcohol. “Alcohol use shouldn’t define the college experience,” Ettinger said.

“And it’s normal not to drink. I wish everyone knew that it’s normal not to drink.” While the 2017 Annual Safety and Security Report shows an increase in liquor law violations, many other offenses have shown a decrease in 2016, with the exception of arson and dating violence. In accordance with the Clery Act, all colleges and universities receiving federal funding are required to publish and distribute campus safety and security policies and crime statistics for the previous year by Oct. 1. Clery Compliance Manager Shelley Deats said her job involves

a deeper analysis of crime reports, coming from places such as the Baylor University Police Department, Title IX or Campus Security Authorities, to ensure that Baylor gives the community the most accurate numbers. “We will take a report and dissect it and just ensure that we’re not overcounting or undercounting,” Deats said. “That way when people come in and take a look at those charts and those numbers, they can have the utmost confidence that we’ve really thoroughly gone through what needs to be in there and what doesn’t.” Deats said that the difference between police crime reporting

versus Clery crime reporting is that the police deal with incidents that they have investigated and that have proven to be a case whereas Clery crimes are reports of alleged crimes — so they may or may not have occurred. Baylor sent out their report in an email on Oct. 1 that said, “In compliance with federal law, the following is sent annually to all students, faculty, and staff. This notice contains information that the University is legally required to convey to you; you are strongly encouraged to read it.”

ASSAULT from Page 1 “Now I’d like to think that we’re a little bit more caught up and that people are coming forward on a more timely basis.” The Clery Act emphasizes transparency, making compliance to the act significantly nuanced and detail-oriented. According to Deats, there are numerous factors to consider when looking at Clery crime statistics, such as geography and the date of report. Clery crimes are counted the first date of report to a university or campus security authority, not the date of the incident. For example, in the case of the nine assaults reported in the 2015 campus crime statistics, the nine crimes did not necessarily occur in 2015, but they were made known to Baylor authorities that year. Clery geography not only includes the main university campus, but also branch locations

such as the Louise Herrington School of Nursing or the Baylor in New York program. Hypothetically speaking, Deats said if students travel routinely to a certain hotel and stay three consecutive nights, that hotel would also be counted in the Clery statistics if a crime occurred, even though Baylor does not have any ownership of the property. The contracted agreement for Baylor students to stay there constitutes Clery geography. For example, Deats said if the students stayed on the second floor of the hotel, any crimes that occur on the second floor or any of the thoroughfares to get to the floor would be counted as a Clery crime. Furthermore, if a burglary took place in a suite-style apartment with a common area and four lockable suites, Deats said in the realm of Clery reporting, she would need to count each room as a separate burglary. If there was

an instance with three or four roommates in the same residential location, one crime could potentially count as four burglaries. It is important to understand some of the details considered when counting Clery crime statistics because the numbers alone do not always tell the whole story. It might be too simple to say Baylor has “X” number of assaults, whereas a school with similar demographics like Southern Methodist University or Texas Christian University may have “Y” or “Z.” Multiple factors must be taken into consideration such as campus size, educational travel and date of report. “A lot of people automatically equate a high number with negativity, like oh my goodness so many crimes happened,” Deats said. “But looking at that from another perspective...I will say the more people we educate, the more

people will feel comfortable enough to come forward. That may mean a spike in numbers, but that means that we know about it and we can help them. We can improve their quality of life and we can also prove to people that we won’t be silenced and we won’t tolerate that on our campus.” The Annual Fire Safety and Security Report is a federally mandated report following the implementation of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act) in 1990. The Clery Act requires all colleges and universities receiving federal funding to provide information regarding oncampus crime as well as crimes that occur in certain off-campus buildings or properties owned, leased or controlled by Baylor.

The Baylor Lariat


Soccer overcomes offensive obstacles NATHAN KEIL Sports Editor After 200 minutes of scoreless play last weekend in matches against Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, Baylor soccer seemed determined to rediscover its offense. Baylor also had to play without leading scorer junior forward Jackie Crowther, who may be out for the year after sustaining a knee injury against the Sooners on Sept. 29. Despite the obstacles, Baylor outshot Texas Tech 11-7 and got first-half goals from sophomore forward Camryn Wendlandt and senior defender Precious Akanyirige as the Bears cruised to a 3-0 win over Texas Tech on Friday night at Betty Lou Mays Field. Baylor head coach Paul Jobson said that as impressive as the offense was, he was more impressed with the defensive effort. “Just an overall great performance from everybody. I couldn’t be more proud of just everybody all over the field, what they were able to put into tonight. And then able to finish some chances,” Jobson said. “Again, we weren’t stressed about not scoring, but at some point you hope that that lid comes off the back of the goal and you’re able to put some in the back of the net. And against a great team; Texas Tech’s no joke. They’ve been scoring a lot of goals this year, too, and we were able to shut them out. That’s a big defensive effort as well.” Both teams looked for offensive opportunities early on, but the first chance didn’t come until the 17th minute. Following the Red Raiders fourth foul of the first half, junior defender Sarah King lofted a pass to Wendlandt, who headed the ball into the top right corner of the net, giving Baylor a 1-0 lead. Wendlandt said after struggling offensively last weekend, it was nice to find some early success.

“It just felt really nice to finally put some goals away. We’ve worked so hard and it was really cool to see all our team effort pay off tonight in the net,” Wendlandt said. “[King] has amazing talent and I feel so lucky to play with a player like her. She just put the ball in the right place. It was nothing that I did.” Texas Tech looked to respond in the 22nd minute. After a corner kick for the Red Raiders was blocked, junior defender Brooke Denesik had a good look against Baylor freshman goalkeeper Jennifer Wandt, but her shot hit the post. After dodging a good look from Texas Tech, Baylor began to push the offensive tempo again. Senior midfielder Aline De Lima had an opportunity to extend the Bear’s lead in the 23rd minute, but her shot missed high. In the 28th minute, Texas Tech sophomore midfielder Jordie Harr got the second shot for the Red Raiders, but Wandt made the save. Baylor added to its lead in the 31st minute when senior midfielder Caitlin Schwartz’s corner kick was knocked in by Akanyirige, putting the Bears up 2-0. The Bears kept the pressure on in the second half. After a pair of yellow cards on the Red Raiders set up a free kick for De Lima, De Lima’s shot hit the post, but junior midfielder Julie James corralled the rebound and fired one to the back of the net, putting Baylor up 3-0. Texas Tech had opportunities to try to cut into the lead, but Wandt had the Red Raider’s number. In the 61st minute, sophomore forward Jade King had a look and sailed it high over the net. In the 68th minute, freshman forward Ally Griffin had a look, but Wandt denied it. Griffin had the last chance as well, coming in the 87th minute, but once again Wandt prevailed. Wandt pitched her 6th shutout of the season

as she saved all four shots she saw on goal, something her teammates are beginning to expect from her. “One hundred percent confidence in her,” Wendlandt said. “Jen’s stepping up right now as a freshman and she’s doing great things. She’s so rock solid in everything she does.” With this win, Baylor improves to 8-3-2 overall and 2-2-1 in the Big 12. The Bears also improved their record to 6-1 at Betty Lou Mays Field this season with one more home game left, an Oct. 20 matchup with Texas. James said that the Bears played more

relaxed offensively, something that the coaching staff challenged them to do moving forward. “It was all in our spirit. This week we’ve been trying to work a lot on relaxing a little in front of the net,” James said. “Our coaches have talked to us about that a little more and that was one of the challenges tonight, to have fun and relax in front of the net. I felt like we did that and we have to keep it up this next week too.” Baylor will hit the road next weekend for a 7 p.m. Friday match with Kansas State and a 1 p.m. Sunday match with Kansas.

Volleyball setting up home game win streak COLLIN BRYANT Sports Writer Baylor women’s volleyball overwhelmed West Virginia in straight sets 25-20, 25-18, 25-12 Saturday at the Ferrell Center, extending its winning streak to nine straight matches at home. The Bears and Mountaineers traded blows early in the first set with neither team able to pull away in the first 12 points.

Junior outside hitter Aniah Philo and Staiger each had three kills. Redshirt sophomore middle hitter Shelly Fanning said she thought it was incredible to have so many different threats on offense, as it makes offense easier for everyone. “I think it’s awesome that we have so many threats across the net and I think it opens it up for everybody,” Fanning said. “We knew we couldn’t give hope to this team because they are a good team.” The Bears got off to a quick lead early in the second set, but the Mountaineers remained in striking distance as they continued to battle. Staiger along with freshman outside hitter Yossiana Pressley led the Bears with five kills going into the middle of the set.

After an attack error going into the final portion of the third set, the Bears took a timeout, leading 18-9. The

Bears offense continued to attack before Fanning’s kill gave the Bears the set 25-12 and the match. Baylor head coach Ryan McGuyre said the team was committed to working on their improvements throughout the game. “We’re committed to being one degree better. With a freshman setter that just played so good against Iowa State and again tonight, we’re siding out at a very high level,” McGuyre said. “It reminds me of the old days when I was coaching guys, you knew as long as we were up we’re going to win.” Baylor (15-4, 5-1) hopes to capture another conference win against Kansas State (8-9) at 7 p.m. Oct. 14 in Manhattan, Kan.

Baylor equestrian fell to No. 4 Oklahoma State 14-4 Saturday in Stillwater, Okla. in its Big 12 opening meet. Following a record-setting season opening win, the Bears (1-1, 0-1) only managed a point in each of the four events against the hosting Cowgirls (1-0, 1-0). Baylor head coach Casie Maxwell said the team was confident going into the meet, but Oklahoma State was too sharp in their home arena. “We had a lot of confidence in our first road competition, but simply made too many errors that left the door open to be beat,” Maxwell said. “Congratulations to OSU, who rode really strong and clean through all four events. We know what we need to work on to prepare for the next one and I’m confident our team will go home and grind to fix their mistakes.” Junior Shannon Hogue earned the Bears’ only point in fences, the opening event, winning by a score of 82-76. Baylor dropped the event 4-1. In the horsemanship event, junior Abbe

Freshman Rachel Davis made her debut for Baylor, picking up a point in the flat event with an 81-80 victory while junior Sam Matthews tied on her ride, 79-79 as the Bears dropped the event 3-1. The Cowgirls clinched the meet during the reining event with a 3-1 score, but sophomore Georgia Smith earned a 7270.5 win and garnered Most Outstanding Performance honors. Despite the loss, Smith said she is excited to see the Bears fulfill their potential this season. “I was really happy with my ride today, earning an MOP is always an honor, especially against as talented a team as OSU,” Smith said. “As a whole, our team rode confidently. I am really excited to see all that we can accomplish this season, with the next goal at hand being to sic SMU.” Baylor dropped to 0-15 in road meets at Oklahoma State and 12-21 in the overall series against the Cowgirls.

Van Zyl won the main draw singles championship with a come-from-behind three set victory over University of Houston sophomore Tsveta Dimitrova, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4. Van Zyl said she knew that if she kept grinding, she could pull out the victory. “It was hard, but I mean, when you’re down you’re never out of a match,” Van Zyl said. “That’s what I just kept telling myself, just keep going and to stay positive, anything can happen, a match can change like that.” Van Zyl opened the final day of play facing Baylor sophomore Jessica Hinojosa in the semifinals where she won in three sets, 2-6, 6-4, 6-1 to reach the final. Van Zyl defeated TCU freshman Stevie Kennedy 6-0, 6-2, Kentucky freshman Isabel Iglesias 6-2, 6-2 and Tyler Junior College freshman Tamara Arnold, 6-2, 6-3 during play on Friday and Saturday to advance to the

semifinals on Sunday. Baylor women’s tennis head coach Joey Scrivano said he’s extremely proud to see the hard work that Van Zyl has put in, produce great results. “Theresa has just had a great fall. She’s put in the work this season, all during her time here she’s been a consistent worker,” Scrivano said. “It’s amazing when you put the preparation in, the results follow and just extremely proud of her.” Hinojosa previously faced Tyler Junior College sophomore Oceane Garibal, 6-4, 6-3, and Mississippi State freshman Magda Adaloglou, 3-6, 6-0, 6-1.

Baylor’s men’s club soccer team played Texas A&M Friday in Waco in a game that ended in a 1-1 draw. The game was physical, but didn’t have many fouls called. Baylor’s defense played exceptionally as they held the high-powered Texas A&M offense to just one goal, compared to their average of four goals. The Aggies managed to get eight shots on goal, with Duluth, Ga. sophomore goalie Braden Howie managing to stop all but one. The lone goal the Aggies scored came on a free kick from mid-field in the 38th minute. During the play, Howie tripped on another teammate, which allowed a free shot on the goal for the Aggies. Coppell senior and cocaptain Collin McAden said he believes Howie’s success is because of his work ethic. “Braden is such a hard worker. They couldn’t get past him and they shot a lot tonight,” McAden said. “He showed up at six o’clock today and asked me for the balls. He wanted to get a really good workout in before the game. He played the game of his life.” Baylor’s goal came in the 68th minute off of a rebound by Burr Ridge, Ill., sophomore striker Christopher Metcalf. Baylor also managed eight shots on goal, but it took 23 minutes in the second half for them to find the back of the net. “Our coach always said we need someone there to clean up. I knew how to act after

GOING FOR GOAL Club soccer practices on Sept. 9 to prepare for the 2017 season. The club played Texas A&M on Friday in Waco, where the match ended in a 1-1 draw.

it was back in the box and I just did what I usually do as a striker and stuck my head on it and it went in,” Metcalf said. In the 82nd minute, McAden set up a free kick just outside the box and placed the ball in the upper left corner of the goal, giving the Aggie goalie no chance. The whole team celebrated until the referee called the goal back. The free kick was actually an indirect kick, which means that more than one person had to touch the ball before a goal could be scored. Instead of Baylor leading the Aggies 2-1, the game was still tied and Baylor lost all their momentum. Even though the game ended in a 1-1 draw, McAden said he believes this was one of the best games Baylor has played all season.

“[Texas] A&M is always a great team. That was the best game we have ever played. We played fast and played for each other and trusted everyone on the field that they would be in the correct position,” McAden said. “We can lock down defensively, but we have a difficult time scoring. Today we put so many [shots] out there that we had to score.” McAden said he believes if they play with the same intensity and focus then can win the next game. They have been preaching teamwork and trust all season, and if they continue to do those things they should come away with a victory over the weekend. Baylor plays at 1 p.m. Saturday against the University of Texas at Arlington in Arlington.
