TEXAS TECH FACES FINAL NON-CONFERENCE TUNE-UP WEDNESDAY NIGHT AT NEVADA Texas Tech will face its final non-conference tune-up prior to Big 12 play Wednesday night when the Red Raiders travel for a 9 p.m. CT battle with the Nevada Wolfpack at Virginia Street Gym. RED RAIDERS LOOK TO REBOUND AFTER TOUGH WEEKEND AT RICE Texas Tech dropped consecutive non-conference matches for the first time in the Don Flora era last weekend during the Rice Invitational as the Red Raiders fell in their two Saturday contests against Cal State Northridge and the host Owls. Despite the two losses, Tech is still an impressive 25-5 against non-conference foes under the second-year head coach. The Red Raiders will be looking to win its final non-conference match prior to Big 12 play on Sept. 19 for the second-straight year as Tech defeated North Texas, 3-1, on the same date last year in Denton. UPCOMING SCHEDULE The Red Raiders open Big 12 play Saturday evening when the Kansas Jayhawks travel to Lubbock for a 6 p.m. first serve in the United Spirit Arena. Texas Tech will be looking for its first win in a Big 12 opener since 2007 when the Red Raiders topped Colorado in five sets. The Red Raiders will play three of their first four conference matches in the United Spirit Arena as No. 9 Texas (Sept. 29) and No. 19 Iowa State (Oct. 6) will both travel to Lubbock following a road match at new league member TCU on Sept. 26. THE NEVADA SERIES Texas Tech will be facing Nevada for the first time since 1996 Wednesday evening as the Red Raiders are 2-0 all-time against the Wolfpack. The Red Raiders swept Nevada, 3-0, in each of their previous two meetings, with the most recent being on Aug. 31, 1996, in Reno. Tech also dropped the Wolfpack in straight sets a year earlier in an Oct. 13, 1995 contest in Lubbock. Texas Tech head coach Don Flora has never faced the Wolfpack as a collegiate head coach.

@TECHATHLETICS


2012 TEXAS TECH VOLLEYBALL 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 Piper recording a .350 average and McKay trailing slightly with a .335 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. ‘ 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. The performance marked the fifth time the Plano, Texas native has reached the 20-dig plateau this year as she has been in double digits in all but one match. FLORA JUST FIVE WINS SHY OF 300 Don Flora enters this week needing five wins to reach 300 for his career as the second-year head coach is 295-79 midway through his 13th season and 26-20 while at Texas Tech. Flora arrived at Tech prior to the 2011 season as one of the winningest active coaches in the NCAA after posting a 269-59 record during 11 seasons at the University of La Verne in California. The Red Raiders wrapped Flora’s first season in Lubbock with a 1517 record that marked the program’s most wins since 2001. RUETTER ALREADY AMONG THE TOP SETTERS IN THE BIG 12 Texas Tech freshman Emily Ruetter ranks third in the Big 12 entering this week for assists per set as she has averaged 10.91 per frame this year. She trails Kansas’ Erin Mcnorton (12.36) and Kansas State’s Caitlyn Donahue (11.65) for the league lead as the Canadian native is only freshman ranked in the conference top five. In addition to quarterbacking the offense, Ruetter has also been instrumental on the back row as she is second on the team with 125 digs. She has recorded a team-leading six double-doubles through 14 matches this year, two more than fellow freshman Meghan Stacy. 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. RED RAIDERS LOOK TO CONTINUE NON-CONFERENCE SUCCESS UNDER FLORA Don Flora’s transformation of the Texas Tech program has been boosted by the Red Raiders’ success in nonconference matches. In his two seasons, Flora has led the Red Raiders to a 25-5 mark in non-conference matches, including an 11-3 record this season. During that time, Texas Tech has posted a 7-0 record at home against non-conference foes and won five tournament titles. The Red Raiders have dropped three non-conference matches already this season, one more than its total from all of 2011. Tech is 5-3 in true road matches against non-conference opponents under Flora as well.

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.

BIG 12 PRESEASON TEAM

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 18-1 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 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.

2012 TEXAS TECH VOLLEYBALL RUETTER, STACY SEEING DOUBLE Freshmen Emily Ruetter and Meghan Stacy started their Texas Tech careers off on a good note at the Boston College Invitational, totaling two double-doubles each. Ruetter opened the weekend with 43 assists and 10 digs against Fordham before closing the tournament with a 37-assist and 11 dig performance against Boston College. Stacy was equally as impressive over the final two matches, totaling 14 kills and 16 digs against Siena and then 11 kills and 11 digs against Boston College. The two performances mark the first time a Tech freshman has recorded a double-double since Breeann David did so on Sept. 26 last year at New Mexico. 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. 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. 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 in a unanimous selection.

Don Flora Head Coach 2nd Season University of La Verne ‘90, ‘00 Career Record: 295-79 (12) At Tech: 26-20 (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 295-79 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
