LUBBOCK, Texas - After one of the best seasons in school history a year ago, the Texas Tech women's golf team will begin its 2012-13 campaign among the top 30 teams in the nation as Golfweek Magazine recently ranked the Lady Raiders 27th in its preseason poll.

The Lady Raiders return five letterwinners, including senior All-Americans Gabby Dominguez and Kim Kaufman, from their 2011-12 team that advanced to the postseason for the third-consecutive season.

"We are looking forward to getting the season started," fourth-year head coach JoJo Robertson said. "We have a very competitive tournament schedule that will test us each time we play. our players have worked hard during their career to be in this position but we still know we have a lot of work in front of us. It will be a fun year."

In addition to the five returners, Robertson and assistant coach Emily Kuhfeld have added depth to the roster in the offseason with the addition of freshmen Kimmy Hill and Victoria Uresti.

Tech wrapped the 2011-12 season ranked 32nd in the final Golfweek poll after narrowly missing the cut at the NCAA West Regional where the Lady Raiders finished ninth and three strokes back from advancing to the national tournament.

The Lady Raiders are one of three Big 12 schools to debut so far in Golfweek's preseason rankings, joining No. 25 Texas and No. 28 Baylor. The publication is announcing a new team in its top 30 daily, with its most recent being No. 18 Texas A&M.

Tech opens the 2012-13 season Sept. 10-11 at the Ptarmigan Ram Classic held in Fort Collins, Colo.
