Sweep by Baylor. Ranked Baylor swept Texas Tech this weekend, but the highlight for the team was a 3 home run game by Jessica Hartwell. Pretty terrific (yeah, baby steps here).

Texas Tech Track and Field

Texas Tech Baseball

Texas Tech Wins Kansas Series. I have updated the Kansas baseball series thread for the first two game, both wins, however, I have not had time to update yesterday’s 17-3 loss. Yes, that’s not a misprint. A 17-3 loss. Texas Tech did win the first two games handily, 15-6 and 10-0, so there is that. The Red Raiders have a game at Dallas Baptist on Tuesday before hosting Kansas State for the weekend. Texas Tech is 5-4 in the Big 12 and the Wildcats are 2-6. Oklahoma won the TCU series, but did finally lose a game, and they are 8-1 on the year. At the top of the Big 12 is Oklahoma (8-1), Texas (9-3), Oklahoma State (6-2), Texas Tech (5-4) and TCU (4-5). Texas Tech still has all of those teams on their schedule. Get ready for some baseball.

Texas Tech Basketball

Myers to Texas Sports Hall of Fame. AJ-Media’s Don Williams was in attendance for the induction of former Texas Tech basketballer, head coach and athletic director, Gerald Myers:

Myers, who represented Tech as a basketball player in the 1950s, as the Red Raiders’ head coach from 1971-91 and as athletic director from 1996 to 2011, was part of a nine-member class inducted into the state’s sports shrine Saturday night at the Waco Convention Center.

Kent Wojciechoski came to Tech from California as a 7-foot center in the early 1980s and came to Waco from California on Saturday as a retired, 25-year police officer. Like Phillips, who’s now a teacher and coach at Dallas St. Mark’s, Wojciechoski said Myers made a lasting impression on him.

“I told Dwight, ‘He’s developed a lot of men to be men,’ ” Wojciechoski said. “A big part of my life in law enforcement was hearing his voice in the back of my head, still screaming, that got me through some pretty difficult situations. So he’s made a lot of difference in my life.”
