INSIDE THE KANSAS STATE SERIES Texas Tech enters Saturday’s match looking for its first win over Kansas State since 2004 as the Wildcats have won the last 15 contests between the two schools. The Red Raiders defeated K-State, 3-2, on Nov. 20, 2004, in Manhattan for their last win in the series which also was the last Tech victory over a ranked opponent as the Wildcats were ranked 20th at the time. K-State leads the all-time series 29-8 overall after hanging on for a 3-2 victory on Oct. 20 this year in Manhattan. The Wildcats are also 11-5 all-time when playing in Lubbock.

Roosevelt H.S.

Miara Cave will be one of two Red Raiders honored in Saturday’s Senior Day ceremony, joining fellow San Antonio native Tory Vaughan. Cave is coming off one of her best performances of the season at No. 3 Texas Wednesday night as she connected on nine kills to finish one back of Emily Ehrle for the team high. She was 9-for-16 on the attack with just one error for a .500 hitting percentage, her highest during Big 12 play this season. Cave is one of two Red Raiders with at least 200 kills this season as she enters this weekend with 213 on the year go go along 38 digs and 40 blocks. This is the second-straight season where Cave has recorded at least 200 kills as she totaled 298 a year ago, giving her 834 for her career entering this weekend.

TEXAS TECH VOLLEYBALL UPCOMING SCHEDULE The Red Raiders close out their home schedule next Wednesday when the Baylor Bears travel to Lubbock for a 6 p.m. match at the United Spirit Arena. The match will air nationally on FOX College Sports. Tech will then wrap the regular season on Nov. 24 at No. 19 Kansas. TEXAS MATCH STARTS TOUGH STRETCH TO END REGULAR SEASON Wednesday night’s match at Texas opened a difficult stretch to end the regular season for the Red Raiders, who will face three ranked opponents in their final four matches. Texas Tech fell in straight sets to No. 3 Texas Wednesday before hosting No. 20 Kansas State on Saturday. After facing Baylor next Wednesday, Tech will close the season at No. 19 Kansas. This will be the most challenging stretch for the Red Raiders this year as Tech has not faced a ranked opponent in back-to-back matches so far. RED RAIDERS AGAINST RANKED OPPONENTS Texas Tech will be facing a top-25 team for the sixth time this season as the Red Raiders are 0-5 so far with a pair of losses to Texas and Iowa State as well as Kansas State. The Red Raiders came close to upsetting thenNo. 14 K-State on Oct. 20 as Tech overcame a two-set deficit to force a fifth frame where the Wildcats closed the match with six-straight points for the victory. Tech has not defeated a ranked opponent since traveling to K-State on Nov. 20, 2004, and defeating the 20th-ranked Wildcats, 3-2, in Manhattan. The Red Raiders are 0-9 against top-25 teams so far under head coach Don Flora.

RED RAIDERS TO MAKE ONE MORE APPEARANCE ON FOX COLLEGE SPORTS Texas Tech will make its final appearance on FOX College Sports when the Red Raiders battle Baylor on Nov. 21 at the United Spirit Arena. The Red Raiders had previously hosted Oklahoma on Oct. 17 and TCU last Wednesday on the network which signed a three-year third-tier rights agreement with Tech in September. BRUMMITT SNAPS SINGLE-SEASON DIGS RECORD Rachel Brummitt snapped the Texas Tech single-season digs record early in the first set against TCU on Nov. 7 as she passed Melissa McGehee’s school-record total from the 2000 season. With her 12 digs against the Horned Frogs, Brummitt now has 468 on the year, 20 more than McGehee’s previous mark. The Plano, Texas native is only the eighth player in school history to record at least 400 digs in a season. She previously passed teammate Tory Vaughan’s 407 digs from a year ago, which marked the first time Texas Tech had two players reach the 400-dig mark in consecutive seasons.

David opened the match with seven kills in the pivotal first set where Tech led 24-21 before TCU rallied to take the opening lead with a 32-30 victory. She also added nine digs to finish just shy of her fourth career double-double. Her 19 kills snapped her previous career high of 17 that she set on Oct. 1 last year in a five-set loss to Oklahoma. The performance marked the fifth time this season a Tech player has recorded 19 or more kills in a match. OPENING SET KEY FOR THE RED RAIDERS The opening set has been crucial for Texas Tech under head coach Don Flora as the Red Raiders are 9-3 this year and 23-6 under Flora when winning the opening frame. Overcoming deficits has been a challenge, especially in Big 12 play, as the Red Raiders have rallied to win from a first-set loss five times under Flora, with four of those matches taking place this season. Tech is also a perfect 16-0 under Flora when taking a 2-0 lead into the break.

STACY BECOMES LATEST RED RAIDER TO EARN BIG 12 WEEKLY HONORS After dropping 19 kills against West Virginia, Meghan Stacy became the fourth Red Raider this year to earn a Big 12 weekly award as she was named the conference Rookie of the Week on Oct. 29. The freshman totaled 19 kills for the second-straight match as she originally set her career high on Oct. 20 at No. 14 Kansas State. The Ozark, Mo. native finished with just five attacking errors off 40 swings against the Mountaineers en route to recording a .350 hitting percentage, her highest in Big 12 play this season. She is the third Red Raider to earn Rookie of the Week honors this season, joining Emily Ehrle (Sept. 10) and Emily Ruetter (Sept. 4). The selection marks Tech’s fifth weekly award this year, the most in a program history, as Rachel Brummitt also garnered Defensive Player of the Week accolades twice already. TEXAS TECH SWEEPS SEASON SERIES WITH WEST VIRGINIA Texas Tech completed the season sweep of West Virginia on Oct. 27 with a 3-1 victory at the United Spirit Arena. The Red Raiders, who also topped the Mountaineers in four sets on Oct. 13, had not previously swept the season series with a Big 12 opponent since defeating both Kansas and Texas A&M twice in 2006. The victory also marked the first time Texas Tech had defeated a Big 12 opponent in four or less sets at home since topping Kansas, 3-1, on Sept. 26, 2006. DAVID DELIVERS HER BEST PERFORMANCE IN BIG 12 PLAY Breeann David joined with Meghan Stacy to give the Red Raiders two solid options on the outside on Oct. 27 against West Virginia as the duo combined for 33 of Texas Tech’s 54 total kills. David connected on 14 kills to go along with six blocks and three digs to help lead the Red Raiders to a 3-1 victory. She finished with just two errors off 32 swings which was good enough for a .375 hitting percentage, her highest career average during Big 12 play. Her 14 kills also fell just one shy of matching what was at the time her most against a conference opponent since she totaled 15 on Oct. 26 last year against Baylor. RED RAIDERS FALL JUST SHORT OF UPSET BID OF NO. 14 KANSAS STATE A two-set deficit did not derail Texas Tech from nearly upsetting 14th-ranked Kansas State on Oct. 20 in Manhattan. The Red Raiders, who dropped each of the first two sets, rallied with wins in the third and fourth to force a pivotal fifth set where the two teams were tied at 9-9 midway through the frame. Kansas State won the final six points, however, to escape with the victory. The Red Raiders advanced to a fifth set against a ranked opponent on the road for the first time since traveling to Oklahoma on Sept. 27, 2008. Tech was looking for its first win over a top-25 team since facing the Wildcats on Nov. 20, 2004, in Manhattan. RED RAIDERS BOAST BALANCED ATTACK With her five kills at Baylor earlier this year, Breeann David became the sixth Red Raider to reach the 100-kill mark this season, 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 217 kills followed by Cave with 204 and Stacy with 188. McKay and David round out the group with 178 and 175 kills each, while Piper has totaled 148 on the year. BRIEFLY … • The Big 12 Conference has four teams ranked in the top 25 or receiving votes in this week’s AVCA poll which marks the most for the league four season. No. 3 Texas leads the group that also includes No. 19 Iowa State, No. 20 Kansas State, and No. 22 Kansas. Oklahoma has also received votes in the poll throughout most of the season. • The Red Raiders are No. 105 in this week’s ratings percentage index (RPI) poll that is released every Monday leading up to NCAA postseason selections. Tech came in at No. 75 nationally in the first set of rankings that were released four weeks ago, marking a significant improvement in Don Flora’s first season where the Red Raiders were No. 93 in the opening rankings. • Texas Tech boasts one of the youngest rosters in the Big 12 as 15 of 18 Red Raiders who have appeared in a conference match so far are classified as either a freshman or sophomore. • Following the Red Raiders’ victory over West Virginia last Saturday, Don Flora is just three wins shy of reaching 300 for his career as he is 297-91 over 13 seasons and 28-32 while at Texas Tech. • Ellen Sorrells broke her career high in digs for the second-straight match on Oct. 27 against West Virginia as she totaled 11, one more than her previous high that was set on Oct. 20 at No. 14 Kansas State. Sorrells also totaled three aces against the Wildcats, marking the fourth time this year where a Red Raider has recorded three aces in a match. • Like Sorrells, Whitney Ford and Brianna Grant also came off the bench and delivered against Kansas State as Ford totaled a season-high three kills and two blocks while Grant notched season highs with five kills and four blocks. • Rachel Brummitt enters this weekend ranked fourth in the Big 12 for digs per set as the sophomore transfer is averaging 4.41 per frame. The two-time Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week has also recorded the second-highest dig total in the Big 12 this season after finishing with 34 against Houston Baptist in the Rice Invitational opener. • Tory Vaughan enters this week among the leaders in digs among active Big 12 players as the senior has totaled 892 over her four seasons which ranks seventh 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) and Hannah Allison (Texas) are the only other setters to register 60 or more assists in a match. • Ruetter enters this weekend ranked fifth in the Big 12 with a 9.97 assists per set average. She is the conference leader among freshman setters as Oklahoma’s Julia Doyle is averaging 9.84 assists per set while West Virginia’s Brittany Sample has recorded a 9.16 per frame average. @TECHATHLETICS


TEXAS TECH VOLLEYBALL EHRLE BECOMES FIRST RED RAIDER TO REACH 200-KILL MARK With her six kills at West Virginia, Emily Ehrle became the first Red Raider to reach the 200-kill mark this year as she has totaled 217 entering this week. The Crowley, Texas native is the sixth Red Raider since 2000 to record at least 200 kills as a freshman, joining Kelly Johnson (2001), Kiley Lyons (2003), Amy Gandy (2004), Amanda Dowdy (2008), and Breeann David (2011). Fellow freshmen Lydia McKay and Meghan Stacy have a chance to join Ehrle as they have recorded 178 and 188 kills, respectively. 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 with Tech’s two highest hitting percentages as McKay has totaled a .274 average while Piper is hitting .309 on they year, which currently ranks ninth in the Big 12. The two, along with fellow middle blockers Mikia Mills and Brianna Grant, have combined for 406 kills so far this season, 32 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. MILLS BECOMING A FORCE IN THE MIDDLE Mikia Mills entered the Kansas State match coming off two of her best performances of the season as the sophomore totaled 15 kills and 11 blocks during the previous week. She matched her career high with eight kills at West Virginia and then came close to matching it again when she finished with seven against Oklahoma. In addition to her offensive numbers, Mills has also been instrumental at the net as she recorded seven blocks against the Mountaineers and four against Oklahoma. Mills’ emergence has helped play a key role for the Red Raiders, who have been without junior middle blocker Aubree Piper for the last seven matches. HRAGYIL, STACY COME OFF THE BENCH TO SPARK RED RAIDERS IN WIN Part of Texas Tech’s success at West Virginia stemmed from the play of its bench, specifically Nicole Hragyil and Meghan Stacy. Hragyil moved from a back row substitute to setter to start the second set while Stacy was inserted on the outside as an offensive boost. Both delivered as Hragyil recorded her first career doubledouble with 30 assists and 10 digs while Stacy connected on 10 kills to go along with a .296 hitting percentage. Stacy’s 10 kills marked her most during Big 12 play this year as she reached double digits for the first time since dropping a season-high 16 on Sept. 14 against Houston Baptist. Hragyil, meanwhile, posted season highs in both categories as she reached double digits in digs for the third time in her career. Both players were in the starting lineup Wednesday evening when Tech fell in straight sets to Oklahoma. 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 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 has primarily played three rotations since returning from injury. 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 1517 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 13-12 and have already received five 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. #WRECKEMTECH

TEXAS TECH VOLLEYBALL 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. 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 double-double 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 POW 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 B.C. 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. FLORA GOES WITH YOUNG LINEUP IN BOSTON Don Flora certainly was not kidding when he said prior to the season that the Red Raiders would likely use a rotation composed primarily of freshmen and sophomores. The second-year head coach proved his point at the Boston College Invitational as the Red Raiders started at least four newcomers in every match, with the Binghamton and Boston College lineups including four freshmen and a pair of sophomores. 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.

TEXAS TECH VOLLEYBALL

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 Defensa Volleyball Club, one 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 . 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. RED RAIDERS PICKED EIGHTH IN BIG 12 PRESEASON POLL In order to advance to the postseason for the first time since 2001, Texas Tech will have to do better than its preseason poll prediction as the Red Raiders were picked to finish eighth in the nine-team Big 12 Conference in a vote by the league coaches. Texas, which has won the conference title in four of the past five seasons, was a unanimous selection to defend its Big 12 crown from a year ago with Iowa State and Kansas State being picked second and third, respectively. Oklahoma, Baylor, Kansas, and TCU rounded out the picks in front of Tech, while new league member West Virginia was the only school picked behind the Red Raiders.

Don Flora Head Coach 2nd Season University of La Verne ‘90, ‘00 Career Record: 297-92 (13) At Tech: 28-33 (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 297-92 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.

TEXAS TECH VOLLEYBALL

LAST MEETING WITH TEXAS MANHATTAN, Kan. - Texas Tech rallied from two sets down but was unable to deliver its first win over a ranked opponent since 2004 Saturday as No. 14 Kansas State held on for a 3-2 (25-13, 25-14, 20-25, 23-25, 15-9) victory at Ahearn Field House. The Red Raiders were looking for their first win over a top-25 team since Nov. 20, 2004, when Tech topped K-State, 3-2, in Manhattan. The match was also the last time Tech defeated K-State as the Wildcats had won 14-straight in the series. After overcoming an early two-set deficit, Tech came close to ending both streaks until the Wildcats broke open a 9-9 tie in the fifth with a 6-0 rally to close the match. Tech had previously rallied from 3-0 and 7-4 deficits earlier in the frame. “This was a competitive, quality performance out of our team,” Tech head coach Don Flora said. “We got down early, but I was proud to see how we stepped up and forced a fifth set. Kansas State is obviously one of the top teams in the country, so the way we came back and nearly won really says a lot about this young team.” Already facing an early deficit, Flora turned to his bench and found a combination that began to click as Meghan Stacy, Brianna Grant and Whitney Ford all entered on the front line. The trio accounted for 27 kills combined along with nine blocks. Stacy finished with a career-high 19 kills, including 12 during the fourth set alone, to lead the Red Raiders. She was joined in double digits by Breeann David, who connected on 12 kills of her own. Attacking errors plagued the Red Raiders early and then also in the fifth set as Tech finished with 30 in the match en route to a .147 hitting percentage. Tech totaled only four kills to go along with four errors in the pivotal fifth set after totaling a .368 average in the fourth. K-State, meanwhile, hit .318 as a team with only 18 errors, marking the third-highest average for a Tech opponent this season. Kaitlynn Pelger and Alex Muff led the Wildcats with 18 and 17 kills each while Lilla Porubek added 11 as well. All three players hit over .300 individually with Muff leading the way with a .593 average.

Meghan Stacy came off the bench to deliver a career-high 19 kills previously against K-State.

Rachel Brummitt anchored the Tech back row with 21 digs while Tory Vaughan and Ellen Sorrells added 10 each as well. K-State led Tech, 61-57, in the category thanks in part to a team-high 18 digs from Pelger. The loss dropped the Red Raiders to .500 for the first time this season as Tech fell to 12-12 on the year and 1-7 in Big 12 play. K-State improved to 18-3 overall and 5-3 in league action.
