LAFAYETTE — Louisiana Tech’s Haley Ballinger put together her best tennis of the fall season this weekend winning her first singles flight at the Ragin’ Cajuns Fall Classic.
The freshman from Monroe won three matches to take flight six while Taly Merker and Tarrannum Handa each notched two singles wins as well for Tech.

“Haley really hit her peak. She was not only playing good but playing smart. She is still not near her potential so I am excited to see how she develops the rest of the season.”

There may be some readers out there this morning, when they see the above headline, who are saying, ‘Oh no, not another story on Derek Jeter.’”

Knowing two of its primary weapons were out for the game, the Ruston Bearcats realized they had some offensive questions Friday night against Captain Shreve at L.J. “Hoss” Garrett Stadium.
And it was senior running back Qayshon Thurman combing with the Bearcats’ big-play defense that helped provide the answers as Ruston downed the Gators 23-10.
Ruston lost first-string running Jawuan Wright earlier this season with a broken leg, and starting quarterback Ben LeBlanc left last week’s game with a concussion and was ruled out against Captain Shreve.
