The Caller-Times with a profile on center fielder Kiani Ramsey, who was named ot the Big 12’s all-freshman team last year after batting .348:
“She always looked very poised,” Locke said. “She is such a competitor. Every day she comes in to work early and stays late to get better. She loves the game. She loves to win.”
Right now, Ramsey is trying to win the lead-off spot in the Red Raiders’ everyday lineup.
“I’m hoping that that will happen pretty soon,” Ramsey said. “It’s one of my goals for sure.”
“Right now, there’s a competition for (the lead-off spot) and it’s cool to see different people on this team competing for different spots,” Locke said. “Kiani will definitely be near the top of the lineup. We just have to see who fits best where and who executes.”

ESPN’s Jake Trotter has his post-signing day Big 12 power rankings and your Red Raiders are ranked 9th:
9. Texas Tech Red Raiders (9): The Red Raiders were woeful along the offensive line last year, so reeling in the No. 4 offensive guard in Jack Anderson was a huge coup. Octavious Morgan, an ESPN JC 50 transfer, has the chance to be the lockdown corner that Tech has so desperately craved in recent years. Having to dismiss four-star receiver Bronson Boyd days after he arrived on campus, however, was a blow.
Miscellaneous . . . WacoTrib reports that the *new* Baylor strength coach was arrested on Saturday morning as part of a prostitution ring and was immediately fired, although this was the new strength coach, so the vetting process at Baylor is still top-notch . . .
