A four-run first inning would be all the offense the Lady Techsters needed as Louisiana Tech (24-16) took down in-state foe UL-Monroe (21-26) on Thursday night at the Lady Techster Softball Complex.

The Pineville native tossed five frames allowing just two hits and an unearned run.
The first inning got off to a slow start as Kristen Miles, who reached on an infield single with one out, stood at first with two outs in the inning. That’s when LA Tech broke out the big sticks.

For the second time in less than a week, state transportation officials have closed an Interstate 20 bridge in Lincoln Parish because of holes in the bridge’s surface.

The Louisiana Highway 506 overpass at Simsboro was shut down around 5 p.m. Thursday after the Department of Transportation and Development district office was notified that chunks of the deck had fallen out.

Officials also closed one lane of the westbound side of the interstate near the bridge because the lane is directly beneath the hole.
