Tech bowling team No. 1 at invitational
The Louisiana Tech Lady Techster bowling team won a school record 16 straight games on its way to claiming the 2011 Southern Invitational this weekend in Baton Rouge.
Tech entered Sunday’s baker match play as the top seed out of the seven-team field after recording the highest pin total over the first two days, besting second seed and Top 20 ranked Prairie View by 177 pins.
Sunday’s final day started rough as LA Tech fell to the loser’s bracket after Prairie View A&M (4-2) defeated the Lady Techsters in the best of seven match. However, Tech responded by winning a school record 16 straight games to sweep Southern, Tulane, Mississippi Valley State and Texas Southern for the championship title.
