The Wildcats are one of the highest-ranked Heart of America Athletic Conference programs in the CFA preseason Top 30.
Baker, a perennial power in the HAAC, is coming off a 9-2 2021 in which it went 4-1 in divisional action. The Wildcats did not make the playoffs in 2021, after reaching the quarterfinals in the 2020 postseason.
Baker opens the season at home on Aug. 27 when it hosts Culver-Stockton. The Wildcats then play a spate of non-conference games, including a matchup with defending national finalist Grand View on Sept. 10. Baker opens HAAC Division action on the road on Oct. 15 at MidAmerica Nazarene.
