Louisiana Tech University may be embarking on its debut season in Conference USA, but the school’s football program could be making a quick impact in the league.
In its early summer preview of the 2013 season, the College Football Focus publication has tabbed the Bulldogs as the “Sleeper of the Year” in the West Division.
Tech will officially begin its affiliation in C-USA on July 1 and be one of seven schools comprising the West Division. Fellow divisional members include Tulsa, Rice, Tulane, Texas-El Paso, North Texas and Texas-San Antonio.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Louisiana Tech (4-10) attempted a comeback for the second straight game, but fell just short against No. 25 Texas A&M (11-4), 6-5, Saturday afternoon at a rain-soaked Olsen Field at Blue Bell Park.
Texas A&M scored six runs in the first four innings thanks to four Tech errors, but was held scoreless after that, allowing the Bulldogs to scratch away at the lead up until the eighth when Tech scored to make it a 6-5 deficit. The Aggies’ Jason Jester then came on in the ninth and shut down the ’Dogs in the final frame for his second save of the weekend.
After hosting a successful spring camp, head coach Kevin Sherry and the Louisiana Tech soccer staff is now preparing to conduct an Elite Summer ID Camp.
The two-day event will be held on Aug. 1-2 for female players going into grades 9-12 who wish to compete at the collegiate level.
Tech’s soccer camp will provide the committed soccer player with exposure to a competitive Division I training environment and also an opportunity to work with the Louisiana Tech coaches at the Lady Techster Soccer Complex.
