Tech Hosts WTAMU, Travels to TCU This Weekend
April 2, 2009
LUBBOCK, Texas - The Texas Tech soccer team will complete its spring schedule this weekend, hosting West Texas A&M at 1 p.m. Friday at the John Walker Soccer Complex, before traveling to face TCU at 7 p.m. Saturday at Garvey-Rosenthal Stadium.
Friday's match against West Texas A&M was originally scheduled for March 29 in Canyon, but was postponed after snowy and cold conditions left the field unplayable.
TCU went a program-best 14-4-2 in 2008, but failed to land an at-large bid into the NCAA Championship after falling in the semifinals of the Mountain West Conference Tournament. West Texas A&M finished its 2008 season 16-4-1, playing in the Lone Star Conference on the NCAA's Division II level.
Tech is 3-0-1 on the spring, having previously downed Houston and Miami (Fla.) in Austin, Texas, and UTEP at home. The Red Raiders' lone tie came in its most-previous match at home against Oklahoma State.
Fans will be admitted free of charge to Friday's match. This weekend officially ends Tech's spring slate as the Red Raiders will be limited to practices only until the 2009 season opener in August.
