NEWS & NOTES FROM OPENING TWO WEEKENDS • Texas Tech enters this weekend coming off a 3-2 weekend at the Troy Cox Classic hosted by New Mexico State. It was the second-straight 3-2 weekend for the Red Raiders, who at 6-4 on the season are one win shy of their total from the first 10 games of the 2013 season. • The Red Raiders could easily be 9-1 on the season but losses in the latter innings to Akron, Weber State and New Mexico State have hurt Texas Tech through the first 10 games. • Despite using a lineup normally consisting of four or five freshmen, Texas Tech is once again one of the top hitting clubs in the Big 12 Conference as the Red Raiders enter this weekend ranked second in the league with a .338 batting average. • The Red Raiders have scored 56 runs through the first 10 games which ranks tied for second in the Big 12 with Iowa State. Both teams trails Texas in runs as the Longhorns have scored 67 in 12 games already this season. • Texas Tech has also seen success in the circle so far this season as the Red Raider pitching staff has compiled a 2.98 earnedrun average. It is the lowest ERA for a Tech pitching staff since 2011 when the Red Raiders totaled a 2.15 ERA through the first 10 games. • Led by eight stolen bases already from Sydni Emanuel, Texas Tech has been a factor on the bases more so this year than others under Shanon Hays. The Red Raiders have totaled 15 stolen bases already this season, the most through 10 games in Hays’ tenure. • The Red Raiders head into the UTA Hilton Invitational ranked second in the Big 12 with 15 stolen bases, trailing only Texas which has swiped 21 bags through 12 games this season. • The Red Raiders boast two of the top pitchers in the Big 12 heading into this weekend as Gretchen Aucoin ranks second in the league with an 0.51 ERA while Brittany Talley is fourth with an 0.63 average. • Sydni Emanuel has led the Red Raiders from the top of the lineup with a .485 batting average that ranks third in the Big 12 entering this weekend. It is the highest a Texas Tech freshman has hit over the first 10 games in Shanon Hays’ tenure. • Emanuel has been helped offensively by fellow freshman Cassie McClure, who is hitting .450 on the year after a successful weekend at the Troy Cox Classic. Texas Tech had not previously had two freshmen hit over .400 in the first 10 games of a season during Hays’ tenure. • Lea Hopson enters this weekend shared with the Big 12 lead for home runs as the junior-college transfer has belted four through 10 games this year. Hopson connected on two home runs last weekend during the Troy Cox Classic, including a three-run towering shot against New Mexico State. INSIDE THE SERIES • Texas Tech and UT Arlington will be meeting for the 13th time in both schools respective histories Thursday evening. The Red Raiders are 8-4 all-time against the Mavericks after winning the last six games in the series, including a 2-0 victory on Feb. 23 last season. This will be the fourth time Tech has traveled to face UTA on its home field as the Red Raiders are 2-1 in such games historically. • For the third time this season, Texas Tech will face an opponent for the first time in school history Friday afternoon against Creighton. The Red Raiders and Bluejays will meet twice during the weekend in what is the first scheduled contest between the two schools. • The Red Raiders and UMKC will be meeting for the second time this season and the 12th time all-time in the second game of a doubleheader on Friday. Texas Tech previously defeated the Kangaroos, 12-4, in five innings on Feb. 8, in what was the 10th-straight victory for the Red Raiders in the series. Tech is now 10-1 all-time against UMKC and 4-1 in neutral site contests. • Texas Tech will face Illinois on Friday afternoon for the fourth time in school history and the first time since 2009. The Red Raiders swept a pair of games against the Fighting Illini on Feb. 23-25, 2007, but fell, 8-2, in the most recent meeting between the two schools on Feb. 27, 2009. RED RAIDERS MEET UP WITH FORMER ASSISTANT FOX IN TOURNAMENT OPENER Texas Tech will see a familiar face in the opposite dugout Thursday evening in UT Arlington head coach Kristi Fox, who spent three seasons as an assistant coach with the Red Raiders from 2010-12. Fox helped lead the Red Raiders to three NCAA Regional appearances during her tenure before being named UTA’s head coach following the 2012 season. Tech head coach Shanon Hays has faced his former assistant once as the Red Raiders handed UTA a 2-0 loss on Feb. 23 last season in San Marcos, Texas. MULTIPLE RED RAIDERS RETURN HOME THIS WEEKEND The trip to Arlington will be a coming home for several Red Raiders who hail from the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Texas Tech boasts four players from the DFW metroplex in Ashley Fultz (Flower Mound), Brittany Lee (Keller), Sydnie Tapia (Arlington) and Susan Welborn (North Richland Hills). This is Tech’s first trip back to the DFW area since playing three games at UT Arlington on Feb. 27-28, 2010, where the Red Raiders closed the trip 3-0 with wins over Texas Southern, Wichita State and the host Mavericks. EMANUEL LEADING RED RAIDERS AT THE PLATE THROUGH TWO WEEKENDS When Texas Tech head coach signed Sydni Emanuel, he knew he likely had a top of the lineup type hitter who would bring a different dynamic to the lineup. How quick she could make that impact was a factor he likely couldn’t determine. Through 10 games, though, Emanuel has likely exceeded expectations as she is third in the Big 12 Conference with a .485 batting average and among the league leaders in hits, total bases, walks and stolen bases. The Missouri City, Texas native has been a factor on the bases, swiping eight bags while laying down four bunt singles and nine infield hits, all team highs. TALLEY PITCHING STRONG DESPITE RUN SUPPORT What Brittany Talley has done through her first four starts of the 2014 season has been quite impressive. The left-hander improved to 3-0 last weekend with a victory over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi where she allowed just one run off five hits while striking out four. The senior’s 3-0 record to this point is remarkable knowing the Red Raiders have scored only two runs in each of her four starts this season. Talley has given up just two runs in 22.1 innings, giving her an 0.61 earned-run average that currently ranks fourth in the Big 12 entering this weekend. AUCOIN SOLID IN THE CIRCLE DURING OPENING TWO WEEKENDS Brittany Talley hasn’t been the only Red Raider with an impressive opening two weekends of the season. Gretchen Aucoin started off the year by not allowing a single earned run in her first five appearances before giving up one this past Sunday against New Mexico State. She enters this weekend with a team-leading 0.51 ERA that ranks second in the Big 12. Aucoin has been particularly effective late in games, recording two saves already this season which is tied for the most in the conference with Baylor’s Liz Paul. The Ocean Springs, Miss. native now ranks tied for fifth all-time at Texas Tech with four career saves. She is one of two Red Raiders to appear in at least six games in the circle this season as well. OFF TO THE RACES Texas Tech’s ability to steal bases was on full display during the opening two weekends as the Red Raiders swiped 15 alone over 10 games. Sydni Emanuel led all players with eight stolen bases while Lea Hopson has added four to go along with one each from Brittany Lee, Camaury Washington and Brooke Scott. Tech enters this weekend ranked second in the Big 12 for stolen bases, trailing only Texas which has stolen 21 over 12 games this season. It is the most stolen bases through 10 games in a season in Shanon Hays’ tenure with the Red Raiders.

2014 TEXAS TECH SOFTBALL TALLEY NAMED BIG 12 PITCHER OF THE WEEK AFTER DOMINATING OPENING WEEKEND Texas Tech senior left-hander Brittany Talley was named the Big 12 Conference Pitcher of the Week this past Tuesday after her dominating performance at the Lions Classic. Talley powered Tech to its first win of the season with a two-hit, complete game shutout of Nicholls State on Friday night and then followed up by tossing 4.1 shutout innings two days later against Texas Southern. The Little Elm, Texas native was the only Big 12 pitcher with at least 10 innings pitched to not allow a single run, earned or unearned, last weekend. Talley also matched her career high with seven strikeouts against Nicholls State before finishing the weekend with 11 while holding opponents to just a .154 batting average. JUNIOR COLLEGE TRANSFERS PAYING OFF FOR RED RAIDERS Since Shanon Hays’ arrival at Texas Tech in 2010, the Red Raiders have found success with junior college players, recruiting the likes of Logan Hall, Adriana Perez, Raven Richardson among others. Through 10 games this season, Tech’s current class of junior college transfers have boosted the Red Raiders both offensively and defensively with Lea Hopson at second base, Kristi Belshe in left field and Kady Crow appearing behind the plate. Hopson, a College of Southern Idaho transfer, is tied for the Big 12 lead with four home runs in 10 games while hitting .400 with a team-leading 10 RBI. Belshe, meanwhile, hit .313 during the opening weekend before dropping her average down to .263 with a pair of doubles and eight RBI. Crow’s impact has been felt most defensively as she started behind the plate twice so far while driving in a RBI single for extra run support in Tech’s 2-0 victory over Nicholls State. Belshe and Hopson arrived at Tech after earning NJCAA All-American honors in 2013. #6THIS With almost a brand new roster and a slew of freshmen, it was quite understandable when Texas Tech was predicted to finish sixth in the Big 12 preseason poll. Well, it was understandable for everyone outside the Red Raider dugout as Tech quickly adopted the motto “6This” for the 2014 season. The motto should be a driving force for the Red Raiders, who after finishing 30-26 in 2013, will be looking to return to the NCAA Tournament for the fourth time in the past five seasons after being left out of the field a year ago. RED RAIDERS BOAST LARGEST FRESHMEN CLASS IN SCHOOL HISTORY In order to get back to the postseason, Texas Tech head coach Shanon Hays will have to rely on the largest freshmen class in school history. The 11-member freshmen class breaks the previous school record of eight freshmen from both the 2004 and 2010 seasons. It is also the largest freshmen class in the Big 12 this season as Tech has four more freshmen then Texas and five more than Baylor, Kansas and Oklahoma State. The group will be expected to not just fill a few roles but make an impact early as Tech tries to replace all three positions in the outfield along with holes at first base and catcher as well. BIG 12 PROGRAM FRESHMAN TOTALS School No. of Freshmen Texas Tech 11 Texas 7 Baylor 6 Kansas 6 Oklahoma State 6 Iowa State 5 Oklahoma 2 TEXAS TECH RANKS THIRD IN WINS UNDER HAYS Success has been no stranger to the Red Raiders under Shanon Hays. Under the Lubbock native, the Red Raiders have flourished, winning 151 games in four seasons which already makes Hays the winningest coach in program history. Texas Tech’s success during this stretch has lifted the program from the bottom of the Big 12 Conference standings as the Red Raiders are tied with Baylor as the third-winningest school the past four seasons. Tech is one of just three conference teams to record four straight 30-win seasons, joining the likes of Oklahoma and Texas. BIG 12 WINS DURING THE HAYS ERA ENTERIGN 2014 SEASON Rank Team Total Wins 1. Oklahoma 201 2. Texas 187 3. Texas Tech 151 Baylor 151 5. Oklahoma State 141 6. Kansas 117 7. Iowa State 82 RED RAIDERS TO BE POWERED IN THE CIRCLE Texas Tech associate head coach Aly Sartini will have possibly the deepest and most experienced pitching staff of her tenure this season as the Red Raiders return a pair of veterans in senior Brittany Talley and junior Cara Custer along with experienced sophomore Gretchen Aucoin. The staff will get an added boost, though, from the emergence of junior Chandler Moore, who, according to Sartini, had the best fall of her collegiate career. The four returners represent 94 percent of Tech’s total innings from 2013 and 29 of the 30 victories from a year ago as well. They will be joined in the circle by freshman Cassie McClure, the reigning Texas 4A-5A Player of the Year, and redshirt freshman Mattison Maisel. HAYS AND OLD FRIEND REUNITE Texas Tech head coach Shanon Hays will have a longtime friend along his side throughout the 2014 season as Greg “Emo” Evans joined the staff this past summer as an assistant coach. Evans, who previously spent nine seasons as the associate head baseball coach at Oklahoma State, will be responsible primarily for the Tech infield which, after setting the school record for fewest errors in 2012, struggled through portions of last season. Considered one of the top infield coaches nationally, Evans helped produce several of the top defenses in the country during his 25 seasons as a collegiate baseball coach. He will look to do the same in his first stint in softball as he inherits an infield scattered with freshmen but also with a pair of returnees in Samantha Camello and Sydnie Tapia. The Boyle, Miss. native coached Shanon Hays when he was first started his collegiate career as an assistant at Lubbock Christian. He would later move crosstown to Tech where he spent a total of nine seasons under longtime baseball coach Larry Hays, father of Shanon Hays. The Red Raiders experienced their most success in program history during that time with seven 40-win seasons and six trips to the NCAA Tournament.

CAMELLO RETURNS UP THE MIDDLE AFTER STELLAR FRESHMAN SEASON Following an impressive debut in 2013, Samantha Camello will be looking for more of the same this season after hitting .311 while starting in all 56 games a year ago. The Temecula, Calif. native became only the sixth starting freshmen in school history to hit over .300 in her rookie campaign, joining the likes of Mikey Kenney (2010), Stephanie Drewry (2009), Ashley Parker (2004), Sandy Butler (1998) and Paula Workman (1997). Camello, who split time between shortstop and second base as a freshman, led a powerful Tech offense during Big 12 play with a .275 average while playing in one of the nation’s top pitching conferences. She will likely be Texas Tech’s opening day shortstop for the second-straight season.

RED RAIDERS ADD PAIR OF NJCAA ALL-AMERICANS IN BELSHE, HOPSON Similar to years past, Texas Tech once again turned to the junior college level during the offseason to fill needs around the diamond, bringing in four transfers including two NJCAA All-Americans in Lea Hopson and Kristi Belshe. Hopson, who starred the past two seasons at College of Southern Idaho, was among the top junior college hitters around the country as she hit .431 in 2013 with 12 home runs and 46 RBI. Belshe, meanwhile, led the NJCAA with a .590 batting average in 2013 while playing for Lake Land College in Illinois. Belshe was also the national leader in hits (111) and on-base percentage as well (.645) while also ranking third in doubles (26), runs scored (94) and slugging percentage (1.005). The pair mark the seventh and eighth junior college All-Americans to sign with Tech under Shanon Hays. 2013 TEXAS TECH SOFTBALL NEWCOMERS Name POS YEAR Hometown Kaylyn Archuleta C Jr Alamagordo, N.M.

The fifth-year head coach needs 28 games to catch Renee Luers-Gillespie for the longest-tenured Tech coach all-time as he enters the 2014 season having already led the Red Raiders in 227 contests over his four seasons, 28 shy of Gillespie’s 255 from 1996-2000. Hays is currently third all-time in the Tech record book as he also trails Bobby Reeves

Lea Hopson enters this weekend tied for the Big 12 high with four home runs in the first 10 games.

Evans and Reed complete a staff that includes head coach Shanon Hays, associate head coach Aly Sartini and volunteer assistant Holley Gentsch, who was promoted from a graduate assistant position into a coaching role this season. Sandy Wellman, formerly James, will replace Gentsch as the program’s graduate assistant after completing her eligibility a year ago. POWELL & TALLEY DESTINED FOR SUCCESS OUTSIDE SOFTBALL One thing is certain after the 2014 season - Texas Tech will have a pair of seniors destined for success. The only two four-year seniors on the Tech roster, Brittany Talley and Taylor Powell are scheduled to receive their degrees this spring with Talley earning hers in chemical engineering while Powell will graduate as an animal sciences major. While highly successful on the diamond, the pair also sport two of the highest grade-point averages on the team. Talley, a native of Little Elm, Texas, enters this semester with a 3.8 GPA and has already accepted a position with Oxy, an international oil company. Powell, meanwhile, has registered a perfect 4.0 GPA entering her final semester and will look to attend veterinarian school following graduation. TEXAS TECH SET FOR 24 GAMES AT ROCKY JOHNSON FIELD Texas Tech fans will have plenty of opportunities to catch the Red Raiders at Rocky Johnson Field this year with 24 home games set for the 2014 season. After three weekends on the road to start the season, Tech opens its home slate Feb. 28 with a doubleheader against Sam Houston State and Southern as part of the Texas Tech Invitational, the first of two home tournaments for the Red Raiders. Tech will also host the fourth- annual Jeannine McHaney Memorial Classic on March 7-9, bringing in the likes of UT Arlington, Northern Colorado, Abilene Christian and New Mexico State. Following a nearly weeklong trip to Southern California, Tech closes its non-conference slate with a March 19 doubleheader against North Texas and a three-game set March 21-23 with Texas State. The two series begin an eight-game homestand for the Red Raiders, who will open Big 12 Conference play March 28 at home against Baylor. Tech will also host Oklahoma State and Iowa State in a pair of three-game series this season at Rocky Johnson Field. RED RAIDERS PICKED SIXTH IN BIG 12 PRESEASON POLL Texas Tech was selected to finish sixth in the Big 12 Preseason Poll that was voted upon by the conference coaches. The Red Raiders, who finished 30-26 a year ago, have ended the season ranked higher in the conference standings than their preseason selection twice under fifth-year head coach Shanon Hays. Oklahoma, the reigning NCAA National Champion, was the unanimous pick to defend its title while Baylor, Texas, Kansas and Oklahoma State follow with Iowa State slated a spot behind the Red Raiders in seventh place.
