Texas Tech sophomore Jaelene Hinkle and senior Tiffini Smith were named to the Preseason All-Big 12 soccer team.

"We're very proud to have two representatives on the All-Big 12 Preseason Team," head coach Tom Stone said. "I think they chose wisely. Jaelene had a great freshman year, and this just shows what a great body of work Tiffini has put together over her career."

The two selections mark the second straight season in which Texas Tech placed multiple Red Raiders on the Preseason All-Big 12 team.

As a freshman Hinkle was a unanimous All-Big 12 Newcomer selection while also being named second team All-Big 12 and third team NSCAA All-Central Region.

Smith finished last season with two goals and two assists.
