Men & Women’s Track & Field Teams are in Abilene today. This is the second-annual Wes Kittley Invitational, named after our very own head coach.

“I’m so honored and humbled that Abilene Christian has named this meet after me,” Texas Tech head coach Wes Kittley said. “It’s always great to go back and compete there. I really want us to do well, especially because we’re going to a place where I had some great national champion teams. This is also another great chance for us to pick up some regional qualifying marks and prepare for the postseason.”

No. 15 Lady Raiders Tennis Continue to Lead the Big 12. With a 4-0 win over West Virginia yesterday, the women’s tennis team is now 16-4 overall and first in Big 12 play at 6-1.

No. 23 Red Raiders Tennis Defeats Oklahoma State. A 4-3 victory by the good guys in front of a good crowd. No. 1 Oklahoma is up next today at 2pm.

Women’s Golf Currently in Fourth Place. Today is the final round of the SMU Invitational, and the Lady Raiders sit two shots behind Purdue with 18-over par. Tee time is 8am this morning.
