LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - For the first time since 2012, the Texas Tech softball program has earned a postseason berth.

As it was announced late Sunday night, that the Red Raiders were one of 17 teams to be selected for the 2018 National Invitational Softball Championship.

Texas Tech was one of 12 automatic qualifiers, as they are the Big 12 team that finished highest in the league standings but isn't playing in the NCAA Tournament.

This is the sixth postseason appearance for the program but the first for the NISC.

The Red Raiders will face Stephen F. Austin on Wednesday in Conway, Arkansas.
