[Baker] A Message From Baker University’s Director of Athletics Nate Houser

[Baker] A Message From Baker University’s Director of Athletics Nate Houser

Baker – Tue, Mar. 31, 2020 at 11:35 AM

Hello Wildcat Nation!


As we all navigate the challenges before us, I hope that you stay healthy and safe during this journey. 

As you already know, we are living in unprecedented times. As we continue to move forward, I am proud of the way that university leadership has continually kept the health and safety of our faculty, staff and students at the forefront. 

Although many decisions made over the last few weeks have been tough, I can assure you that they have been made in the best interest of Baker University as a whole.

Although the Baldwin City campus is quiet while classes are held online for the rest of the semester and buildings are closed, our coaches are continuing to recruit. Last week, we introduced a new virtual tour option for incoming students. Through this new recruiting tool, prospective student-athletes can tour campus and also video chat with coaches for their sport and faculty for their major. To sign up for a virtual tour, you can visit the Baker University website at

One of the toughest parts of this situation is the sacrifice our spring sports seniors have made. Knowing they won’t join their teammates in competition during their final season or enjoy their senior day, the Department of Athletics will strive to give these seniors the recognition that they deserve. Over the next few weeks, we are recognizing one senior per day on the Athletic Department’s social media accounts for their dedication to their team, Baker University, and the Baker University Athletic Department. Seniors, we THANK YOU and honor you.

Because situations and recommendations change frequently, please continue to check your university email and visit for updates on actions implemented at Baker related to COVID-19.

Although this is a trying time for all of us, one of the greatest things about being a Wildcat is the ability to rise to challenges. With the strength, love, and support of the entire Baker family, WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS!

BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – After a strong season where she helped lead the Baker women’s bowling team to a Heart of America Conference Championship, Megan Carpenter has been named an NAIA Second Team All-American. 

Megan has accomplished so much this year and has performed at a much higher level than she did last year,” head coach Cheryl Keslar said. “I am very proud of her hard work, her dedication and most of all, her commitment to thhis team.”

Carpenter joins nine other student-athletes from around the country on the All-American teams and is the only student-athlete from the Heart of America Athletic Conference to earn a spot on the list.
