Lady Raiders Receive Third Transfer in Terry. Texas Tech and head coach Candi Whitaker announced that the Lady Raiders would be receiving their third transfer in post player Jada Terry who is transferring from Texas A&M. Terry is 6-3 and played 53 games for the Aggies over the past 2 seasons. Terry joins Larryn Brooks and Taylor Agler as the three other transfers.
Baseball Beats ACU, 7-6. This is now four in a row, and it wasn’t easy, as the Red Raiders beat Abilene Christian, 7-6 (recap and box score). Quinn Carpenter got the start again for the midweek game, going 3 innings, allowing 8 hits and 4 runs, 2 earned. The bullpen was pretty well terrific as Matt Withrow, Jacob Patterson and Parker Mushinski went 4 innings allowing just 1 run on 2 hits. Dominic Moreno pitched the 8th and 9th innings and he made the 9th inning ridiculously dicey (3 hits, a run allowed and a walk). Luckily for Moreno, Texas Tech scored a run in the 9th inning as an insurance run.
The Texas Tech offense beat up ACU’s starter, notching 6 runs in 4.2 innings. Zach Davis continues to rake at the leadoff spot as he went 2-4 and right behind him, freshman Tanner Gardner went 2 for 5 including 1 homerun and 2 RBI. Eric Gutierrez was 2 for 5 with 2 RBI. Orlando Garcia got the start at shortstop again and hit a double and scored 2.
Sendegeya Named Big 12 Player of the Week. Congrats to men’s tennis player Alex Sendegeya who was named the Big 12 Player of the Week after helping the men’s team upset #1 Oklahoma over the weekend. From what I can tell, Sendegeya won two matches by himself and won a doubles match with Jolan Calieau. Congrats!
Men’s Tennis Climbs to #16. Speaking of tennis, the men’s team climbs seven spots to #16. This ranking has only happened five other times in the program’s history.
Women’s Tennis Climbs to #15. Not quite done with tennis as the women’s team stayed at #15 for the second straight week.
