CHOUDRANT — Senior Travis Wilmore led the Bulldogs with a low round score of 67 and finished third overall as Louisiana Tech placed third at the Jim Rivers Intercollegiate at Squire Creek Country Club Tuesday.
Southern Miss held on for the win despite shooting 8-over-par in the final round, finishing with a 3-over-par 867 team score (293-278-296 — 867). The Golden Eagles entered the day with a nine-stroke lead over Southeastern Louisiana (298-282-291 — 871) and held on late for a four-stroke win over the Lions.
In February of 2016, four months before his graduation from Ruston High School, Caden Doga signed with Kansas’ Hutchinson Community College, saying that he thought it would be his best chance to move on to Division I baseball later on.
Division I coaches have probably taken notice of Doga this season as he led the National Junior College Athletic Association with 31 home runs, setting a HCC record in the process and being named Jayhawk Conference Freshman of the Year.
Pregame rituals for Louisiana Tech University’s football team this fall just won’t be the same in our corner.
No Petey Perot around.
Nobody like him to give a tough time, get tickled about his almost Nick Saban-like (OK, there’s only one of those and, besides, Petey will probably want to kick my butt over even putting him in that category) intensity and swapping good-natured putdowns.
