INSIDE THE CENTRAL ARKANSAS SERIES Texas Tech and Central Arkansas will be meeting for the second time in school history after the Red Raiders swept the Sugar Bears in straight sets last year in Lubbock. The 3-0 victory came in the tournament opener of the Texas Tech Invitational where the Red Raiders posted a .329 hitting percentage behind just 10 attacking errors. Amanda Dowdy led Tech with 12 kills while Miara Cave and Aubree Piper each added nine and seven kills each as well. Dowdy also recorded a double-double with 11 digs on the back row. Central Arkansas wrapped the match with 22 attacking errors for a .030 hitting percentage that was caused in part to a 12-3 block advantage for the Red Raiders. TEXAS TECH AGAINST THE SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE Texas Tech is 53-24 all-time against current members of the Southland Conference and 4-0 under head coach Don Flora. This will be the Red Raiders’ second contest against the Southland this year as Tech defeated Northwestern State, 3-1, in the Lonestar Showdown finale on Sept. 1 in Lubbock. Tech has not traveled to face a current Southland member in a non-tournament contest since defeating Sam Houston State, 3-0, on Oct. 10, 1992, in Huntsville. UPCOMING SCHEDULE The Red Raiders return to Big 12 play this weekend when No. 19 Iowa State travels to Lubbock for an 11 a.m. match at the United Spirit Arena. The contest is one of just three home matches for Texas Tech during the month of October as the Red Raiders will travel to Baylor (Oct. 10) and West Virginia (Oct. 13) after facing the Cyclones.

TEXAS TECH VOLLEYBALL WRAPPING UP THE TEXAS LOSS • Despite falling to the ninth-ranked Longhorns in straight sets, the Red Raiders were able to hold Texas to a .260 hitting percentage, its lowest against Texas Tech since posting a .195 average in a 3-1 victory on Oct. 25, 2006, in Lubbock. • The Red Raiders overcame an early opening set loss to lead Texas, 23-22, late in the second set before the Longhorns rallied with three-straight points. • Texas Tech also led the Longhorns throughout the third set until Texas tied the frame at 18. The Longhorns ended the match on an 8-4 run to prevent the Red Raiders from extending the match. DAVID SEES FIRST FULL ACTION BACK AGAINST KANSAS Despite having played briefly in two matches since returning from injury, Breeann David made her full return to the court last Saturday against Texas as the sophomore connected on 10 kills over three sets. David was Texas Tech’s leader in kills prior to suffering an ankle injury early in the first set against Towson on Sept. 7. Since then, she has played just a few points in Tech’s first two Big 12 matches against Kansas and TCU. The Denver City, Texas native went three rotations against Texas and has recorded double-digit kills in each of her last four matches where she has played more than one set. RED RAIDERS BOAST BALANCED ATTACK With 14 more kills this season, Breeann David will be the sixth Red Raider to reach the 100-kill mark, joining freshmen Emily Ehrle, Lydia McKay, and Meghan Stacy along with junior Aubree Piper and senior Miara Cave. Texas Tech has not previously had six or more players reach 100 kills in a season since 2001 when seven players did so en route to the school’s most recent NCAA Tournament appearance. Ehrle leads the balanced attack with a team-high 166 kills followed by Piper with 143 and Cave with 133. Stacy and McKay round out the group with 123 and 112 kills, respectively. BRIEFLY … • The Big 12 Conference has five teams ranked in the top 25 or receiving votes in this week’s AVCA poll which marks the most for the league this season. No. 9 Texas leads the group that also includes No. 15 Kansas State and No. 19 Iowa State. Oklahoma and Kansas are both receiving votes as well to finish just outside the top 25. • Success in the opening set has been a focus point for the Red Raiders this season as Texas Tech is 8-1 when winning the opening frame and 22-4 when doing so under head coach Don Flora. When losing the opening set, though, Texas Tech is just 3-6 on the year and 4-20 under Flora. • Texas Tech boasts one of the youngest rosters in the Big 12 as 12 of 15 Red Raiders who have appeared in a conference match so far are classified as either a freshman or sophomore. • Lydia McKay saw her five-match streak of reaching double digits in kills come to an end at TCU as the freshman finished with four overall. McKay was coming off a team-high 11 kills against Kansas where she matched her season high for the third time this season. • Rachel Brummitt enters this week ranked fourth in the Big 12 for digs per set as the sophomore transfer is averaging 4.61 per frame. The two-time Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week has also recorded three of the five highest dig totals in the Big 12 this season after finishing with a conference-leading 34 against Houston Baptist and 27 against San Jose State. • Tory Vaughan enters this week among the leaders in digs among active Big 12 players as the senior has totaled 799 over her four seasons which ranks sixth in the conference. • Emily Ruetter’s 71 assists against Houston Baptist during the Rice Invitational ranks as the most for a Big 12 player this season as Erin Mcnorton (Kansas) is the only other setter to register 60 or more assists in a match. • Ruetter entered this week ranked 53rd in the NCAA for assists per set as she has totaled a 10.82 average. She also ranks fifth in the category among Big 12 setters as well.

CAVE EMERGES AS BIG 12 PLAY BEGINS After struggling to get healthy early in the year following an off-season knee injury, Miara Cave has seemed to find her groove over the past several weeks as she has posted double-digit kills in four of her last six outings. The preseason All-Big 12 selection recorded her best performance of the year Sept. 19 at Nevada where she matched her career high with 16 kills while also recording a .367 hitting percentage. Cave had previously connected on 14 kills in the Rice Invitational opener against Houston Baptist before returning the next day to drop 10 against the host Owls. The senior also posted a team-high 12 digs last Saturday against Texas as she also led the Red Raiders in attempts (28) and hitting percentage (.214). Cave has been in double digits for kills six times already this season. She has also had at least a share of the team high in the category in four of the last five matches.

STEPPING UP THE MIDDLE Prior to this season, one of the main aspects Don Flora wanted to improve in the Texas Tech attack was the play in the middle. The Red Raiders attacked primarily from the outside during his inaugural campaign on the Tech bench but have looked more to the middle this season with returning junior Aubree Piper and emerging freshman Lydia McKay. The two middles enter this week ranked among the top 10 in the Big 12 for hitting percentage with McKay recording a .323 average and Piper trailing slightly with a .318 percentage. The two, along with fellow middle blocker Mikia Mills, have combined for 235 kills so far this season, 33 percent of Tech’s team total which is vast improvement from a year ago where Tech received only 20 percent of its kills from the middle. Tech has not had two or more middle blockers post 100 or more kills in a season since Piper and Barbara Conceicao combined for 255 in 2010. WELCOME TO THE BIG 12 After being swept in straight sets to open Big 12 play against Kansas, Don Flora described the experience as a welcoming to the Big 12 party for his young roster as seven of the 12 players who saw action against the Jayhawks were making their conference debut. Flora also used a starting lineup that consisted of five newcomers against the Jayhawks as only junior Aubree Piper and sophomore Megan Dominguez had previously appeared in a Big 12 match. The Red Raiders closed the night hitting a season-low .080 while totaling just two blocks and 33 kills, both season lows as well. BRUMMITT FINISHES TWO DIGS SHY OF ANOTHER SCHOOL RECORD In only her first season, Rachel Brummitt has already made quite an impression at the libero position. The sophomore snapped the Texas Tech school record for most digs in a three-set match earlier this year and came close to breaking the overall single-match mark last weekend against Houston Baptist. Brummitt finished with 34 digs in the 3-2 victory over the Huskies as she fell two shy of Ann Romjue’s school record that was set on Nov. 18, 2000, against Texas A&M. With her 26-dig performance at Nevada, Brummitt has reached the 20-dig mark six times already this year as she ranks fourth in the Big 12 with a 4.70 digs per set average. RED RAIDERS RECEIVING MORE ATTENTION UNDER FLORA Don Flora’s hiring at Texas Tech has not only resulted in more wins for the Red Raiders but it has also brought more recognition to the program as well. In the 15 seasons prior to his arrival, Texas Tech had only been honored with a Big 12 weekly recipient 12 times with the most recent being Amanda Dowdy in 2008. That all changed in 2011, though, as the Red Raiders picked up three conference weekly awards en route to a 15-17 season that marked the most wins since 2001. Tech has picked up right where last season left off as well as the Red Raiders are 11-3 and have already received four weekly accolades from the league, giving Flora seven in a little over a season. EHRLE BECOMES LATEST RED RAIDER TO EARN A BIG 12 WEEKLY AWARD Emily Ehrle joined Rachel Brummitt and Emily Ruetter as Big 12 weekly award recipients on Sept. 10 as she was named the conference Rookie of the Week for her play at the Montana Tournament. The freshman totaled 46 kills over four matches, including double digit totals over the final two contests against Furman and Montana. She hit .293 over 14 sets, including a .432 mark against Furman where she connected on a careerhigh 23 kills. The performance marked the first time a Tech player had reached the 20-kill mark this season and was also the most kills since Amanda Dowdy recorded 26 on Sept. 26 last year at New Mexico. The selection marked the third-straight week a Red Raider had earned a conference award, a first in school history. TOWSON SNAPS TEXAS TECH’S SEASON-OPENING WINNING STREAK Texas Tech’s loss to Towson to start the Montana tournament snapped an eight-match winning streak to start the season for the Red Raiders, who were off to their best start since 2003. The Red Raiders had started a season with eight-straight victories only seven times previously in school history. Tech also opened the 2011 season with a solid start as the Red Raiders were 13-1 with the only loss coming in the season opener at TCU. BRUMMITT REPEATS AT BIG 12 DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK Rachel Brummitt became the first Tech player to earn a Big 12 weekly in consecutive weeks on Sept. 4 when the sophomore was named the conference Defensive Player of the Week. Brummitt, who took the award after the opening weekend of the season as well, snapped the Tech school record for most digs in a three-set match against San Jose State as she finished with 27, topping the previous record of 24 that was set by Sheila Solomon on Nov. 16, 1990, against Houston. The Plano, Texas native was named to last weekend’s Lonestar Showdown all-tournament team as she finished with a team-high 60 digs to go along with four aces. RUETTER ALSO HONORED AS CONFERENCE ROOKIE OF THE WEEK Just like Rachel Brummitt, freshman Emily Ruetter was also honored by the Big 12 on Sept. 4 as she was named the conference Rookie of the Week. Since taking over the setter role at the beginning of the season, Ruetter has led a balanced Tech attack as she is sixth in the Big 12 with a 9.60 assists per set average that also ranks second in the league among freshman setters. She finished with 111 assists to go along with 21 digs and seven blocks during the Lonestar Showdown en route to becoming the first Tech setter to earn a conference weekly award since Lisa Hilgers on Nov. 16, 1998. RED RAIDERS WIN LONESTAR SHOWDOWN CROWN Texas Tech’s success in tournament formats continued this past weekend as the Red Raiders defended their home floor to win the Lonestar Showdown title after sweeping both Texas-Pan American and San Jose State before holding off Northwestern State with a 3-1 victory in the finale. The Red Raiders are 38-9 during the Big 12 in home tournaments and 6-0 under head coach Don Flora, who has led Tech to its five tournament titles already in his two-year tenure. Tech is 21-4 when playing in a tournament setting under Flora.

@TECHATHLETICS

TEXAS TECH VOLLEYBALL DAVID SHINES IN FRONT OF HOME CROWD Breeann David led the Red Raiders with 31 kills and 18 blocks en route to earning MVP honors of the Lonestar Showdown. The sophomore also totaled a pair of aces and 29 digs as she posted her first doubledouble of the season and second of her career with 14 kills and 12 digs in the finale against Northwestern State. David also recorded a career-high seven blocks against the Lady Demons and hit a season-high .375 as well. She followed up the performance with another double-double Monday against North Texas where the Denver City native recorded 16 kills and 16 digs to help the Red Raiders overcome an early deficit and take a 3-1 victory. BRUMMITT EARNS BIG 12 DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK AFTER IMPRESSIVE DEBUT Rachel Brummitt was named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week on Aug. 27 after earning MVP honors at the Boston College Invitational. The sophomore totaled 68 digs and eight aces from the libero position, which was the most among Big 12 players that weekend in both categories. The Plano, Texas native was the first Tech player to receive a conference weekly award since Tory Vaughan was also honored as the defensive player of the week on Oct. 31 last year. PIPER, RUETTER NAMED TO BOSTON COLLEGE INVITATIONAL ALL-TOURNAMENT TEAM Aubree Piper and Emily Ruetter were both named to the Boston College Invitational all-tournament team after helping lead the Red Raiders to their first 4-0 start to a season since 2003. Piper was a dominating presence for the Red Raiders in the middle, finishing with 30 kills along with a team-high .397 hitting percentage to go along with 18 blocks. Ruetter, meanwhile, was Tech’s primary setter throughout the weekend, totaling 141 assists (8.81 per set) and two double-doubles after recording 32 digs. CAVE NAMED TO PRESEASON ALL-BIG 12 TEAM Miara Cave was Texas Tech’s only honoree on the Big 12 Preseason Team that was announced prior to the season. The senior was one of 15 conference players honored in a vote by the league coaches after totaling 298 kills a year ago to go along with a .231 hitting percentage. The selection marked the third-straight season a Red Raider has been represented on the preseason team after Amanda Dowdy garnered the accolade the past two years. NEW FACES HIGHLIGHT 2012 ROSTER Possibly the most noticeable feature of the 2012 version of the Red Raiders will be the amount of newcomers spread throughout the roster. Don Flora and his staff added nine freshmen to the roster in the offseason to go along with transfers Rachel Brummitt and Ciara Gibson. Brummitt transferred from Radford University while Gibson redshirted the 2011 season after playing her first two seasons at Kentucky State. This marks the second-straight season Flora has used a large recruiting class after having 12 newcomers a year ago. CAVE, VAUGHAN RETURN FOR SENIOR SEASON Texas Tech seniors Miara Cave and Tory Vaughan will look to wrap their respective careers on a winning note in 2012. The two San Antonio natives have both been regulars in the Tech rotation since stepping foot on campus as freshmen in 2009. Since then, Cave has turned into one of the top right-sides in the Big 12 while Vaughan has played an important role as Tech’s libero over two seasons. Out of Tech’s 21-player roster, only Cave and Vaughan, along with junior Aubree Piper, have lettered more than one season. O’CANADA For the first time since 2007, Texas Tech will boast a player from north of the border in freshman setter Emily Ruetter. One of the top setters throughout Canada the past four years, Ruetter arrives at Tech after lettering at Nelson High School all four seasons while also playing for several of the top club programs in the country. The Burlington, Ontario native was a member of the 17-under Canada Selects team that won the 2011 national title before playing up on the 18-under division at the Ontario Provincials (equivalent to a state championship) where she was named the tournament MVP. Ruetter, who is expected to compete for Tech’s starting setter job, is the first Canadian-born player for Tech since current director of operations Amy Gandy in 2004-07. TEXAS TECH SPORTS NEW LOOK IN 2012 For the first time in recent memory, Texas Tech will sport a new look in 2012 as the Red Raiders will switch to long-sleeve uniforms. The Red Raiders will continue to have three color options in black, red, and white with all three made by Texas Tech’s official uniform provider, Under Armour. One other change to the uniform is across the front where the usual Double T logo has been replaced by the spelling of “Texas Tech.” FLORA HAS RED RAIDERS MOVING UP AFTER ONLY ONE YEAR Don Flora’s presence on the South Plains was quickly noticed a year ago when he led the Red Raiders, who were 4-25 overall in 2010, to a 15-17 record that marked the program’s most victories since 2001. Not a bad start for the first-year head coach. Tech’s 11-match win differential between the two seasons ranked third overall in the nation last year, falling only behind Samford (+15) and Tennessee-Martin (+13). Prior to his arrival, the Red Raiders had combined to win just 11 matches over the previous three seasons. BIG 12 COMING OFF BANNER YEAR The Big 12 Conference is coming off possibly its best season in league history after sending seven teams to the postseason in 2011 and recording the nation’s top RPI (ratings percentage index). The conference finished with five teams ranked in the top 30 of the RPI, including two in the top three with Texas ranked second and Iowa State a spot below. The league’s seven postseason selections marked the Big 12’s most since 2005 and the second-most nationally.

Don Flora Head Coach 2nd Season University of La Verne ‘90, ‘00 Career Record: 295-83 (12) At Tech: 26-24 (2) @CoachFloraTTU

I

n only one season as the head volleyball coach at Texas Tech, Don Flora has already revitalized a once storied program.

Flora was named the eighth volleyball coach in school history on Jan. 7, 2011, and immediately hit the ground running, leading the Red Raiders to a 15-17 record, the program’s most victories since 2001. It also marked the third-largest win differential in the country (+11) from the 2010 to 2011 season after inheriting a program that was just 4-25 the year before. Not bad for a first-year head coach who inherited a program that had only won 11 matches over its previous three seasons combined. Flora led the Red Raiders to that total in only his second month. Flora is 295-82 in 12-plus total seasons as a collegiate head coach as he remains one of the winningest active coaches with 10 years of experience at any level of NCAA play. In his 12 seasons as a head coach, Flora’s only other losing season came during his inaugural campaign at the University of La Verne (Calif.) when the Leopards similarly finished just two matches below .500 with a 12-14 mark. Flora led La Verne to 20 or more wins in nine of his next 10 seasons. The California native will look to do the same at Texas Tech as he enters the 2012 season, his second on the South Plains, with a young roster composed of 10 newcomers coming mainly from his first true recruiting class that spanned the Western Hemisphere as well as the state of Texas. Flora and his staff traveled to Canada to sign setter Emily Ruetter and then reached the Midwest with the addition of Brianna Grant out of Illinois and Meghan Stacy from Missouri. He also stayed close to home with the signing of Emily Ehrle from Crowley, Texas, who was the first of five other true freshmen to join the program. Red Raider fans took notice in only his first year as Tech averaged more than 800 fans in 2011, around a 15 percent increase from the year before. Tech broke the 1,000 fan mark three times, including a season high 1,413 on Nov. 9 against No. 8 Texas that was the largest announced attendance since 1,468 fans saw the Red Raiders face top-ranked Nebraska. Flora came to Tech following a two-year stint as an assistant coach at New Mexico State where the Aggies, consistently one of the top programs nationally, compiled a 38-22 record. Flora was responsible for recruiting activities, practice instruction and game strategy and was involved in the daily development of the overall program under head coach Mike Jordan. La Verne posted at least 20 wins in nine-straight seasons beginning in 2000 as the Leopards claimed ninestraight Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) titles. During Flora’s tenure, the Leopards were 140-10 in SCIAC matches, boasting an impressive .933 winning percentage helped in part by five undefeated 14-0 campaigns in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2007, and 2008. As the success kept building early in Flora’s tenure, so did the achievements at the national level. In only Flora’s fourth season, the Leopards wrapped a near-perfect 27-1 season with the 2001 NCAA Division III National Title, the second in school history. The title run earned Flora the Division III National Coach of the Year honor by both the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) and Volleyball Magazine. He was also named the AVCA West Region Coach of the Year, an award he was presented three more times following the 2003, 2005, and 2008 seasons. With a national title under his belt, Flora’s success kept rolling as the Leopards eventually posted their first 30-win season in 2003, which began a streak of three-straight seasons where La Verne advanced to the NCAA Final Four. The Leopards posted a school-record 33 wins a season later. The Leopards posted 27 wins in each of Flora’s final three seasons at the school, which culminated in another national title match appearance in 2008. Unlike 2001, however, La Verne was topped in the championship, falling to Emory in four sets. Flora graduated with a degree in social sciences from La Verne in 1990 before later returning to the classroom to earn his masters in the Leadership and Management curriculum in 2000. Flora, a native of Covina, Calif., and his wife, Jeanne, currently reside in Lubbock with their two daughters, Annika and Alexis. @TECHATHLETICS
