TEXAS TECH TEAM NOTES
The match was the second all-time between Texas Tech and Central Arkansas and the first to be played in Conway.
The Red Raiders won last year's meeting between the two schools with a 3-0 victory during the Texas Tech Invitational in Lubbock.
Texas Tech picked up its seventh-straight loss and its third-straight to a non-conference opponent. The Red Raiders had not previously dropped three consecutive non-conference matches under head coach Don Flora.
Central Arkansas' eight aces matched the season high for a Texas Tech opponent that was set Sept. 19 at Nevada.
The Sugar Bears combined to hit .306 as a team, the highest hitting percentage for a Tech non-conference opponent this season. It was only the third time a Tech opponent has hit over .300 this year as well.
The Red Raiders' five aces, all coming from Emily Ruetter, marked the squad's most since also totaling five at Rice on Sept. 15.
