Baseball Loses Game Two. Well, another loss in Morgantown, 8-2, to the Mountaineers. I’ve updated the series thread and this is depressing. There’s one more game today and the Big 12 Championship.
Texas Tech Leads After 36 Holes. Here we go. Texas Tech kicked tail in the final nine holes and now lead the NCAA Lubbock Regional after 36 holes. The Red Raiders are three strokes ahead of the second place Longhorns:
Freshman Mito Pereira stormed down the back nine holes with four of his six birdies to push the Red Raiders forward as he finished the day with a 4-under-par 67. Meanwhile, senior Matias Dominguez followed close behind notching a 68 for the day, leaving him in a tie for sixth place individually.
And it really was a heck of a second day:

Women’s Tennis Falls to #1 USC. I couldn’t find a game story this morning, but the #16 Red Raiders fell to #1 USC, 4-0 last night:

Congrats to the ladies who made it this far. Only one senior in this group and they finished 21-7 for the year.
Boucher Chooses Oregon. There’s only a couple of recruits that Texas Tech is chasing and one of them was Chris Boucher, who chose Oregon over Texas Tech and TCU.
6’10 JUCO PF and once Texas Tech target Chris Boucher has committed to Oregon.

Track and Field
Big 12 Outdoor Championships. This snuck up on me as Texas Tech is competing in the Big 12 Championships and started out strong as Kole Weldon won the hammer throw and Hannah Carson won the javelin. They’re in Ames and they’re continuing today and Sunday.
