The Louisiana Tech University soccer program will conduct its third annual “Fun Fest” beginning at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Lady Techster Soccer Complex.
The extravaganza will officially kick off Friday from 7-9 p.m. at the Crescent City Coffee House in Ruston, where soccer alumni, the soccer community, kids and parents can come and meet the Lady Techsters players and staff.
The team will be taking orders and serving drinks with a portion of the proceeds going towards the program’s fundraising efforts.
Tykem Anderson (3, top photo) was the only Bearcat scoring in double figures Monday night as Ruston High School fell 68-38 to Class 5A No. 1 Natchitoches Central High School. Anderson led RHS with 19 points. In girls’ action, Amani McWain (20, bottom photo) poured in 20 points for the Lady Bearcats, but that wasn’t enough as NCHS defeated Ruston 54-42.
“It’s a good way to save and also help the schools,” said Billy Laird, head coach at Ruston High. “Our fans can purchase their jamboree tickets now at the school office.”
Other schools set for the event to be held at Joe Aillet Stadium include Cedar Creek, Farmerville, Minden, Homer, Haynesville, Jonesboro-Hodge, Shreveport Loyola, Shreveport Evangel Academy and Shreveport Calvary Baptist.
It’s a tale of two very different teams as college preseason football preparations kick into gear in Lincoln Parish.
In Grambling State you have a local hero returning to take over as head coach with Doug Williams back in the fold.
Williams returns a stout defense, but the Tigers have to reload at the offensive skills positions, where the cupboard is bare.
