With two straight wins under their belts, the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs will travel to the “Sunshine State” to take on Florida Atlantic in a three-game Conference USA road series beginning at 5:30 p.m. today in Boca Raton, Fla.
The Bulldogs come into this weekend with a 6-10 overall record and a 1-2 mark in league play, while FAU is 12-6 on the season and will also enter the series with a 1-2 league record.
With turkey season kicking off in less than a week, it’s time to get serious about it. It’s not impossible but not too far from it if you saunter out in the woods Saturday without having made any preparations to do battle with one of the cagiest critters the Good Lord ever put on this Earth. Chances are, if you get a gobbler without preparing, it’ll probably be the result of dumb luck.
So what else is new with the girls’ track and field program at Ruston Junior High School?
The Lady Bearcats have completed yet another perfect season, marking consecutive year No. 17 that they’ve done so during the head coaching stay of Kathy Steed.
Ruston Junior High captured their most recent meet title with a 169-point total at a meet hosted by Monroe Ouachita Junior High School.
Coordinator Tommy Spangler is hoping that a combination of seasoned veterans and wide-eyed youngsters bodes well for Louisiana Tech University’s defensive unit in 2010.
“I’m eager to see if two things can happen for us during fall camp,” Spangler said Monday, just a few hours before the Bulldogs kicked off their preseason workouts. “First, I’m hoping that our older guys remember what they did last year and continue to develop. At the same time, I’m hoping that these young guys who might not know what to do right now start blending in with the older ones.”
From all indications, based on personnel returning and the progress made in the spring, the Bulldogs’ defense has the potential to draw as much attention as the much-talked-about spread offense.
