That was the message presented to 266 new Louisiana Tech University graduates by keynote speaker Reginald Owens during the school’s 317th commencement ceremony held Thursday morning at the Thomas Assembly Center.

One week from today, the Louisiana Tech volleyball team will load up on a bus and head to their season opening tournament, the Redhawks Invitational, in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
That moment can’t come quick enough for the Lady Techsters who have spent the past two weeks working tirelessly in preparation for the upcoming season.
From the moment they walk into the Thomas Assembly Center at 6:30 a.m. and until the moment they walk out following a team dinner, the Lady Techsters are leaving it all out on the court, knowing that every practice counts as the season sits just eight days away.

Tech soccer game cancelled

in

Due to the current field conditions and the threat of more inclement weather, Louisiana Tech’s season opener against Murray State that was scheduled for tonight at the Lady Techster Soccer Complex has been canceled.
Ironically, the last time the Racers were set to take on the Lady Techsters in Ruston in the season opener in 2012, the match also got canceled as a result of wet field conditions.
Tech will now hope that rain holds off for Sunday night as the team is set to travel to Beaumont, Texas, to take on Lamar.

Proud to call Louisiana home

Hawley, Heather.jpg

Southeast Louisiana is devastated. Thousands of homes are gone, and 13 people are dead due to the historic flooding.
Homes have been literally washed way. People have been left with the clothes on their back and maybe whatever they could fit in a small bag right before they were rescued from their rooftops.
There have been several stories in our paper in the last week about local residents gathering supplies and making their way into flooded areas to help those displaced from the storm.
