The Aggie women's golf team wrapped up the 2012 WAC Championship tournament with a fifth place finish as San Jose State ran away with the title notching their fourth in a row. Demi Mak provided some excitement for Aggie fans on the final day as she recorded the tournament's low round with a 67 to force a sudden-death playoff with Idaho's Kayla Mortellaro. Mak and Mortellaro each parred the first three holes of the playoff but Mortellaro birdied the fourth hole for the victory. As anyone who plays golf knows, if you're going to lose a playoff, you'd rather lose to a birdie than a par or bogey because it means you've made your opponent earn it.
Mak earned First Team All-WAC honors for her second place finish and was the only Aggie to earn All-WAC honors.

The Baylor Bears baseball team bounced back from having their 24-game winning streak snapped as they defeated UT-Arlington 6-4 last night. The Aggies take on the Bears tomorrow and Saturday with a chance to notch a win over the No. 1 ranked (Collegiate Baseball News) Bears and if we're not mistaken, it would be New Mexico State's first win over a No. 1 ranked opponent since the baseball team defeated Texas Tech a few years back. The next highest ranked victory over a ranked team was earlier this season when the Aggie Equestrian knocked off No. 2 ranked South Carolina.
The Aggies will be taking on Baylor's top two pitchers, Josh Turley and Trent Blank, both of whom are on the National Pitcher of the Year watch list. The Aggies will counter with the one-two punch of Ryan Beck and Adam Mott, both pitchers who have had outstanding years (it's a bit disappointing that none of the Aggie pitchers were name to the initial watch list).
