Michigan State senior Lexi Baylis is always exceeding expectations.

The mechanical engineering major manages her responsibilities as a member of the MSU women’s tennis team while maintaining a 4.0 GPA—and makes it seem easy.

She recently was named as a recipient of the Champions in the Classroom Award alongside men’s swimmer Mitch Strahlman. The honor, started in 2000, is given to one male and one female Spartan player each semester that excels academically and athletically.
