The TSSAA has awarded Baylor the 2012-2013 Blue Cross Championship Series
Trophy, given to the school with the most outstanding athletic program in
the state.

Grouped according to TSSAA competitive divisions and classes, schools earn
points based on quarterfinal, semifinal, final round, and championship
appearances with points increasing at each level of competition. Total
points are divided by the number of sports offered to create an average
point total.
Only schools that have no reported incidents of
unsportsmanlike behavior during the school year are eligible. The winning
schools receive a $2,500 cash donation.

Receiving the trophy on behalf of the school, Baylor Athletic Director
Thad Lepcio said it is a wonderful accomplishment for Baylor's
student-athletes, coaches, and community as a whole. “I am thankful every
day for the opportunity to work with students and coaches who achieve
great success in the classroom and on the athletic fields. I’d also like
to thank Blue Cross Blue Shield and the TSSAA for creating this award to
recognize programs that have succeeded across the board while maintaining
the highest levels of sportsmanlike behavior.”

Baylor won five TSSAA state championships in 2012-13, taking titles in
girls’ and boys’ golf, girls’ cross country, girls’ tennis, and softball.
In non-TSSAA sports, Baylor added state crowns in swimming – girls, boys,
and combined – and fencing.
