The Morning Stake: Soccer Wins and Volleyball Opens Season 2-0

Texas Tech soccer earned their home opening win against Georiga and volleyball opened the season 2-0, both sweeps.


Texas Tech Wins, 2-1, Over Georgia. Via the official site, Texas Tech won their ome opener (as an aside, the black kits with the diagonal stripe across the chest is on point and a terrific kit), 2-1 over the Georgia Bulldogs. A Cassie Conarty header from an Ali Murphy corner kick scored the first goal for Texas Tech and Maddy Crabtree took a Janine Beckie rebound for a score.

Love seeing Kevin Curtis (the video moved to quick for me to recognize anyone else) at the game giving some support and I think the men’s tennis team was there and I’m sure a handful of other teams.

Head coach Tom Stone on the win:

“We weren’t intense enough as a team in the first half,” said Stone. “We tried to use halftime to light a fire that quite frankly we just haven’t seen yet. We were good against USC, we were good against New Mexico, but good isn’t going to get it done. We just appealed to everyone to try to be more aggressive in the second half on defense.”


Texas Tech Goes 2-0 to Open Season. Texas Tech won 3-0 to open the season against Utah State and also swept Louisiana-Lafayette, 3-0 in the second match of the season to start the year 2-0.

Head coach Don Flora:

“It was good to see a lot of people get a chance to get some first time jitters and communication things out of the way and be able to get their first true sweat under the bright lights,” Flora said.

Luke Siegel Update

Stable Condition. Via Facebook:

My apologies for not posting in a while. This week has been very tough emotionally. It has been 1 month since the accident. This week the girls started back to school and Luke would have been going into the 4th grade. It was very tough walking Ellie into school without her little buddy, but I survived. It’s hard to imagine that life does go on.

Luke has been medically stable and has moved to a regular pediatric room. Cognitively, he will open his eyes but will not follow commands. We are waiting on the next step….rehab. We remain hopeful that his brain will continue to heal. Our little guy has fought so hard for the past month. He has not given up, and neither will we. We will miss our PICU angels, but we are ready for the next step. We appreciate the love and support we have received from thousands, many of whom we have never met.

Keep fighting.
