Texas Tech Softball has had their best season in program history and off the field they aren't doing too bad either. Thursday, nine Red Raiders were named to the Academic All-Big 12 teams, the most among conference schools.

Holley Gentsch, Ashley Hamada, and Taylor Powell led the way as they each had a perfect 4.0 grade point average. This  the third-straight selection to the first team for both Gentsch and Hamada and the first for Powell. The two seniors were among nine Big 12 players recognized for the third-straight year. Gentsch, though, holds the distinction of being one of the few players in league history honored with a 4.00 GPA all three years.

Texas Tech awaits their post-season fate on Sunday was the NCAA Regional pairings will be announced. The Red Raiders are currently in 5th place in the Big 12 Conference have a 40-15 record on the season.
