WEEK 3: TEXAS SHOOTOUT • GAMES 12-16 THE SERIES • Texas State - Tech and the Bobcats will be resuming a longstanding series that hasn’t been played since the 2009 season. The Red Raiders are 12-11 all-time against the Bobcats with a 3-2 advantage in neutral-site contests. Tech has won three of the last four games against Texas State. • North Texas - The Red Raiders are just 2-3 all-time against the Mean Green, who have won each of the last three contests. This will be the first time the two schools have met in a neutral-site contest. • UTEP - Tech and the Miners will be facing each other for the eighth time all-time as Tech currently controls a 5-3 advantage in the series. This will be the first time the two schools have met in a neutralsite contest. • Stephen F. Austin - Saturday’s contest will be the sixth all-time between the two schools with the Ladyjacks controlling a 2-3 advantage. The two schools have faced each other just one time since 2000 which was a 4-1 SFA victory on Feb. 21, 2004. Tech is 0-3 when facing SFA at a neutral site. • Baylor - If Tech and Baylor were to face each other Sunday, it would mark the 38th all-time meeting between the two schools on a softball diamond. Baylor holds a 28-9 lead in the series after winning five of the last six contests, including both games last year in Lubbock. Tech is just 4-11 all-time when facing the Bears in Waco. ON DECK The Red Raiders will play the first of 21 games at Rocky Johnson Field next weekend when Tech hosts the second-annual Jeannine McHaney Memorial Classic. Tech will face UT-Arlington and Binghamton in the two-day event that begins March 2. RED RAIDERS REBOUND NICELY IN VEGAS After what many considered a disappointing 1-4 start to the season, the Red Raiders rebounded rather nicely last weekend in Las Vegas, going 6-0 while defeating three teams that advanced to the postseason a year ago in Long Beach State, Portland State, and DePaul along with Ohio State who was receiving votes in the top 25 polls at the time. Tech has now faced six schools that made the postseason last year in its first 11 games, going 4-2 in those contests. JAMES NAMED BIG 12 PLAYER OF THE WEEK After hitting over .400 with a pair of home runs, Sandy James was named the Big 12 Player of the Week Tuesday, marking the second time the junior has earned the honor. She hit .409 at the Louisville Slugger Desert Classic while driving in nine RBI to lead the Red Raider offense. She becomes the first Red Raider in school history to be named the league’s Player of the Week twice. She is also just the second Tech player to earn a weekly award on multiple occasions, joining Amanda Renfro who was named the Pitcher of the Week five times over the 1998-01 seasons. HAYS EARNS WIN NO. 200 The Red Raiders’ 2-1 win over DePaul marked win No. 200 for head coach Shanon Hays as the thirdyear head coach is now 201-54 in four-plus seasons as a collegiate coach. Hays, who is 87-38 at Tech, needs three more wins to pass Theresa Wilson for third on the winningest Tech coaches list as Wilson went 89-123 during the 2005-08 seasons.

PEREZ RIDING POWER STREAK Through 12 games this season, Adriana Perez has already showed why she was the two-time California JUCO Catcher of the Year. The Lancaster, Calif. native is currently hitting .400 on the year with home runs in each of Tech’s last three games, marking the first time any player had done so since Sandy James during last year’s Masked Rider Invitational. Perez shares the team high with three multiple-hit games so far and has reached base safely in each of Tech’s last seven contests. She ranks second on the team with seven RBI while her three dingers trail James by one for the team high as well. TECH, BAYLOR COULD MEET EARLIER THAN EXPECTED Despite playing in a non-conference tournament, the Red Raiders could very well meet Big 12 foe Baylor in Sunday’s championship game. The two teams would likely need to both go 4-0 in pool play for that to happen. Tech and Baylor have not met in a nonconference game since 1996 when the Bears were not yet competing in the Big 12. Baylor swept that three-game series that was part of the Red Raider Invitational held in Lubbock. The two teams are scheduled to play their three-game series April 2022 in Lubbock. TECH PITCHERS GOING THE DISTANCE Led by primary starters Brittany Talley and Cara Custer, the Tech pitching staff has been going the distance for the most part this season, already tossing five complete games over the first two weekends, including four times in Vegas. Custer leads the squad as she has finished out each of her last three outings while Talley trails one behind with two complete game performances of her own. NOTABLES u Texas Tech’s 16 game road trip to start the season marks the longest stretch away from Lubbock under Shanon Hays. The Red Raiders longest streak away from home to start the season was in 2009 when the Red Raiders opened with their first 22 games were at road tournaments. u Texas Tech’s current six-game winning streak is its longest since running off 11-straight from March 11-20 last year as the Red Raiders closed the nonconference schedule. u Tech’s batting average improved 56 points last weekend as Tech went from a .195 mark to a .251 average following the Utah State win. u Reigning Big 12 Player of the Week Sandy James enters this weekend sharing the conference high in home runs with four which is tied with Oklahoma’s Laura Chamberlain. James also ranks among the top conference hitters in hits, RBI, and total bases. u Cara Custer ended last weekend with the Big 12 lead with five wins. The freshman was also among the conference leaders in innings pitched, appearances, games started, strikeouts, and complete games. u Taylor Powell has made her way into the starting lineup the last three games as the sophomore hit .300 in 10 plate appearances last weekend in Vegas. Powell, who started in left field, had three RBI and two runs scored while also adding a double during a 2-for-3 performance against Portland State. u Mikey Kenney also had a solid weekend in Vegas, finishing with a .353 average while connecting on a pair of home runs en route to four RBI and six runs scored. For the second-straight year, Kenney is already among the Big 12 leaders in runs scored.

2012 TEXAS TECH SOFTBALL

RYBA MAKES SOLID FIRST IMPRESSION After sitting out a season due to NCAA transfer rules, Melisa Ryba made a solid debut in a Red Raider uniform, homering off the first pitch she saw in the season-opening victory over San Diego State. It marked the first time a Tech player had homored in the opening at-bat of her Red Raider debut since Mikey Kenney did so against Wisconsin in 2010. Ryba wrapped the weekend at Tech’s leading hitter, finishing with a .400 average to go along with three RBI and a run scored. TALLEY NEARLY LEADS TECH PAST TENNESSEE One of the highlights of Tech’s trip to the Kajikawa Classic was Brittany Talley’s complete game against 14th-ranked Tennessee. The sophomore allowed just one run against the Lady Vols which came off a Melissa Brown double in the fifth inning. The complete game was Talley’s 10th over the last two seasons, the most by any current Tech player. Talley finished the weekend 0-1 in the circle while posting a 3.20 ERA over 15.1 innings in the circle.

PENCIL BLEDSOE IN THE LINEUP During Cal Ripken, Jr.’s historic stretch with the Baltimore Orioles, he earned the iconic nickname “Iron Man” after breaking the major league record for 2,632 consecutive games played. While not nearing Ripken’s mark, Emily Bledsoe has impressed many not just for her glove or bat but for her toughness as well as the Fulshear, Texas native has started in all 182 games since her freshman season in 2009. Already a regular in the Tech record book, the senior will likely enter the top 10 for career games played midway through the season. TECH PICKS UP VOTES IN PRESEASON POLLS For the second-straight season, Texas Tech started the season receiving votes in both the USA Today/ NFCA and the ESPN/USA Softball preseason polls. The Red Raiders picked up five votes in the NFCA poll and then six in the ESPN rankings. One of seven Big 12 schools appearing in the polls, Tech will face a total of 14 teams this season that are ranked or receiving votes in the preseason rankings.

UNFAMILIAR TERRITORY The Red Raiders entered unfamiliar territory last weekend as Tech had never gone into a game with a losing record under head coach Shanon Hays. Tech lost only five non-conference games over the last two seasons, including only one in 2011 alone. The Red Raiders had a tough weekend in Arizona, though, falling to Northwestern, No. 14 Tennessee, No. 9 Stanford, and Cal Poly in what is the worst start to a season since the 2008 squad opened the year with 12-straight losses. Tech’s four-game losing streak to regular season non-conference opponents also marks its longest since late in the 2009 season.

RED RAIDERS FACE CHALLENGE IN THE DESERT The Red Raiders had a tough task at hand at the Kajikawa Classic as four of their five opponents were ranked or receiving votes in the preseason rankings. Stanford led the pack after being ranked No. 9 by the NFCA and No. 10 by ESPN.com, while Tennessee is No. 14 in the NFCA poll and No. 9 in the ESPN rankings. San Diego State was receiving votes in both polls while Northwestern picked up two votes in the ESPN rankings. Tennessee, Stanford, and San Diego State were all selected to a NCAA Regional last year with the Lady Vols and Cardinal eventually advancing to the Super Regionals.

BLEDSOE A CANDIDATE FOR LOWE’S SR. CLASS Earlier this season, Emily Bledsoe was named one of 30 candidates for the prestigious Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award that is presented annually to the softball student-athlete that excels not only on the diamond but also in the classroom and community. The 30 candidates will be trimmed to 10 finalists midway through the season with the winner being named following a nationwide vote at the Women’s College World Series.

RED RAIDERS RETURN 15 PLAYERS FROM 2011 With 15 returners back from its 2011 squad, Tech could be primed for another breakout season in 2012. Of those 15 returners, eight were position starters a year ago while Tech’s top two pitchers, senior Kelsey Dennis and sophomore Brittany Talley, also return in the circle. The Red Raiders had no seniors on their roster last year when Tech finished 42-16 overall after falling to Arizona in the finale of the NCAA Tucson Regional.

BUILDING THAT RPI Part of Tech’s success over the last two seasons in getting to a NCAA Regional has stemmed from its difficult regular season schedule. Tech played six non-conference teams last year that made the postseason and is set to face seven this year with three of those games taking place at the Kajikawa Classic. The Red Raiders dropped San Diego State, 5-4, before falling to both No. 14 Tennessee and No. 9 Stanford, who both earned national seeds a year ago. Tech faced three more regional squads from a year ago last weekend as Long Beach State, Portland State, and DePaul all made the postseason in 2011.

TAKING THE NEXT STEP Immediately following Tech’s season-ending loss to Arizona in the NCAA Tucson Regional, head coach Shanon Hays had one message for his young team to take the next step in 2012. Advancing to the postseason would no longer just be the goal. Knowing the majority of that squad would return this year, he challenged the group to win a regional this season, a feat that has not been accomplished in school history. The Red Raiders have fallen in the regional finale in each of the last two seasons.

RED RAIDERS FACE QUALITY ARMS IN ARIZONA If there was one certainty from Tech’s opening weekend at the Kajikawa Classic, it was that Tech faced two of the country’s top pitchers in Tennessee’s Ellen Renfro and Stanford’s Teagan Gerhart. The duo combined to hold Tech to just one run which came off a Mikey Kenney solo home run in the second inning off the Cardinal. Renfro was the SEC Freshman of the Year last season after compiling a 26-7 record, while Gerhart earned All-Pac 12 first team honors after going 26-13 in the circle.

TECH BOASTS A RECORD EIGHT SENIORS After only having a total of two seniors on the roster during his first two seasons, Shanon Hays will have a senior-laden squad for the first time as eight seniors return for their final season in scarlet and black. No Tech team had previously boasted more than six seniors on its roster since softball returned as an intercollegiate sport in 1996. The only two seniors in Hays’ tenure were in 2010 when Ashly Jacobs and Leah Legler completed their eligibility. Both are still associated with the program this season with Jacobs filling the role of graduate student manager and Legler as the volunteer assistant coach.


WEEK 3: TEXAS SHOOTOUT • GAMES 12-16 TECH RETURNS ONE OF NATION’S TOP LINEUPS The majority of last year’s lineup that hit .361 and ranked fourth nationally in both batting average and scoring average returns this season as the Red Raiders bring back eight position starters from a year ago. Tech set the Big 12 Conference record last year with its .361 batting average as seven regulars in the lineup hit .300 or better during the season. Raven Richardson led all hitters with a .384 mark followed closely behind by Emily Bledsoe and her .383 average. BLEDSOE NAMED TO PRESEASON WATCH LIST Senior Emily Bledsoe was named to the USA Softball Player of the Year Watch List prior to the season, joining 49 players nationwide including 10 from the Big 12 Conference. Bledsoe, a Fulshear, Texas native, hit a career-high .383 as a junior and is already a fixture in the school’s record book. She is the first Tech player to be named to any preseason watch list in school history. TECH HITS THE ROAD FOR NON-CONFERENCE After playing the majority of non-conference games at home the past two seasons, the Red Raiders will be hitting the road more often this year with four non-conference tournaments away from Lubbock. Following Tech’s trip to Tempe to open the season the Red Raiders will travel to Las Vegas (Feb. 17-19) for the Louisville Slugger Desert Classic, Waco (Feb. 24-26) for the Texas Shootout, and South Orange, N.J. (March 16-18) for the Seton Hall Classic.

TECH PICKED 7TH IN BIG 12 PRESEASON POLL Even with lofty expectations and the majority of its 2011 squad back for another season, Texas Tech was picked seventh in the Big 12 preseason poll of conference coaches. The league is coming off a record year where eight teams (of 10) advanced to the postseason with four of those eventually composing the eight-team Women’s College World Series. Missouri was the preseason favorite to take the league title followed by Oklahoma and then Texas. Team (first-place votes) Points 1. Missouri (3) 59 2. Oklahoma (4) 56 3. Texas (1) 50 4. Baylor 45 5.

Iowa State 10 BIG 12 PLAY TURNS TO THREE-GAME SERIES For the first time in Big 12 history, all conference series will be three games each. The league had previously gone with a two-game format and a postseason conference tournament until the 2011 season when the tournament was cut. There will be a total of 24 conference games, six more than the 2010 season. With the departure of Nebraska, the league is a nine-team conference as Kansas State does not sponsor softball.

HAYS LOOKS TO CUSTER FOR BOOST IN CIRCLE When pitching coach Aly Sartini was out recruiting the Las Vegas area in the summer of 2010, she sat in by chance on the Washington Lady Hawks travel team where this young right-hander with great velocity and good movement was retiring hitters left and right. Sartini along with Shanon Hays immediately began recruiting that right-hander, current freshman Cara Custer, early and secured her commitment before several of the top programs across the country came calling. Now, the Tech coaching staff is expecting the Spanaway, Wash. native to be a dominating presence in the circle for a Tech pitching staff that had a 3.50 ERA a year ago.

RED RAIDERS ADD JUCO CATCHER OF THE YEAR Tech continued to add hitters in the offseason with the signing of two-time California JUCO Catcher of the Year Adriana Perez. One of the top junior college prospects in the country last year, Perez is expected to bolster an already-deep catcher staff that consists of seniors Holley Gentsch and Cydney Allen along with junior Randi Tongate. Perez hit over .500 in each of her two seasons at Antelope Valley College in California, totaling 31 home runs and 117 RBI during that two year stretch. RYBA RETURNS TO DIAMOND AFTER YEAR OFF Melisa Ryba will be returning to the softball diamond for the first time since the 2010 season this weekend as the redshirt junior sat out the 2011 season due to NCAA transfer rules. Ryba, who could play varies positions for Tech, transferred from Northern Colorado after hitting .323 as a sophomore with seven home runs and 32 RBI. She was named an All-Independent Co-Freshman of the Year in 2009 before Northern Colorado joined the Pacific Coast Softball Conference in 2010 when she was a second team PCSC AllMountain selection.

In two seasons as Texas Tech’s head softball coach, Shanon Hays has taken the Red Raiders to consecutive NCAA Regional appearances, breaking a nineyear postseason absence and laying the framework for a program on the rise in the process. After inheriting a squad that was only 15-42 in 2009, Hays led the Red Raiders to back-to-back 30-plus win seasons, including a 42-16 campaign in 2011 that marked the highest winning percentage in school history. Prior to Hays’ arrival, Tech had only advanced to the postseason twice in program history with its last trip being in 2001, which was also its most-previous season with a winning record. Tech’s 80-34 record under Hays is one win shy of its previous four seasons combined as the Red Raiders won 81 games from 2006-09. Most importantly, though, the Red Raiders have been in the postseason each season, advancing to the NCAA Stanford Regional in 2010 and the Tucson Regional in 2011. Tech fell in the regional finale each year as eventual College World Series participant Hawaii ended the squad’s run in 2010 while host Arizona dropped the Red Raiders in 2011. No Tech squad had previously advanced to a regional in consecutive seasons, nor had any team previously appeared in the top 25 rankings. The Red Raiders changed that on Feb. 15, 2011 as they appeared in the top 25 of both polls, breaking a drought that lasted over a decade. Tech, which had not been ranked previously in either poll since the end of the 1999 season, climbed as high as No. 19 throughout the year, the highest ranking in school history. Under Hays, Tech has consistently produced one of the top lineups in the nation as the Red Raiders spent most of the 2011 season with the highest batting average in the nation before ending the year fourth overall. The squad’s 7.17 runs per game ranked fourth as well in scoring nationally, while its .533 slugging percentage was just inside the top 10 nationally in ninth. With that type of production up and down the lineup, the Red Raiders have snapped 13 single-season offensive marks in the school record book, including the previous highs for batting average, runs, hits, doubles, home runs, and RBI. While playing in a conference dominated by pitching, Tech has only been shutout six times under Hays as the Red Raiders have been among the Big 12 leaders in most offensive categories as well. Four players - Cydney Allen, Emily Bledsoe, Logan Hall, and Mikey Kenney - have been honored on either the All-Big 12 second team or on the NFCA postseason awards lists following each season. Tech’s transformation should come as little surprise after Hays’ work at Lubbock Christian. Following his appointment as the program’s first head softball coach in 2006, Hays worked for a full academic year in preparation for LCU’s first season in 2008. The Lady Chaps did not disappoint in their inaugural season, compiling a 60-9 record and claiming the NAIA National Championship, earning Hays NAIA National Coach of the Year honors. Hays wrapped his twoyear tenure at LCU with a 114-16 overall record after advancing to the national championship again in 2009. Known as a top-flight recruiter and motivator, Hays was named the Sooner Athletic Conference Coach of the Year both seasons and produced five NFCA and NAIA first team All-Americans during his tenure. Hays turned to softball after a successful career as a basketball coach that included two seasons on the Texas Tech bench as an assistant coach from 1999-2001 under James Dickey. He is the first person at Texas Tech to coach two completely different sports (one men’s and now one women’s). Hays began playing fastpitch softball as a youth, along with baseball and basketball, because his father, the legendary Texas Tech and LCU baseball coach Larry Hays, also played fastpitch softball. Hays, the elder, whose 1,509 career wins were good enough for fourth on the all-time collegiate baseball list, retired as Tech’s all-time winningest coach prior to the 2009 season. He graduated from Lubbock Monterey High School in 1986 and makes his home in Lubbock with his wife, Tina, two sons, Hunter, Heath, and daughter, Hampton. For Hays’ complete bio, visit texastech.com.
