Tech continues upgrade in athletics’ facilities
In addition to Louisiana Tech’s “Quest for Excellence” campaign, many more athletic facility improvements are taking place this summer on the Tech campus.
The most noticeable improvement is what is happening at the Lady Techster Soccer Field. In preparation for the 2010 Western Athletic Conference soccer championships to be hosted by Tech Nov. 4-5 and Nov. 7, permanent bleachers are being installed along the south side of the field. A press box is also being installed atop the bleachers as the additions are on schedule to be completed by the Lady Techsters’ first home game on Aug. 27.
“The team had been looking forward to having a ground of their own, and it is exciting for everyone involved to see it grow,” said Tech soccer head coach Kevin Sherry. “The grounds staff has done such a great job on giving the team a fantastic playing surface to play on, and now with the inclusion of a bleacher and press box we have something to show our visiting recruits and call home.”
