Texas Tech Falls in Straight Sets. The men’s team fell in straight sets to No. 4 Wake Forest yesterday afternoon, dropping Texas Tech to 15-2 on the year.
“This wasn’t our best day in terms of play, competing and energy level,” Texas Tech head coach Brett Masi said. “When you play a team like Wake Forest, you can’t expect to be able to fight back from a bad start. Basically, we didn’t show up to start the match. We had some hope during a few of the second sets in singles but couldn’t get the job done. Hopefully, this is an experience we will learn from. We have a few weeks to improve and get ready for a tough round of matches.”
As the story notes, the men’s tennis team has only lost to the No. 1 team, North Carolina, and No. 4 Wake Forest. Up next, California, where Texas Tech will play in the San Diego Invitational.
Texas Tech Splits Sunday. Teh softball team beat Illinois State, 5-3, and lost to No. 5 LSU, also by a score 5-3. Teh softball team is 6-10 on the year and here’s head coach Adrian Gregory:
“How could you not be happy with our result this weekend,” said head softball coach Adrian Gregory. “I was proud of the way Cheyene Powell and Mattison Maisel came out in the second game. We knew that LSU would have a game plan for them and they both came out and competed and gave us a chance. We had the ball hit where we wanted it a number of times where we just didn’t make a play here or there, but I thought our pursuit was spot-on.”
