Conference USA officials announced Tuesday that Louisiana Tech sprinter Charla Craddock has been named the league’s Female Track Athlete of the Week after she ran a league-leading 23.41 in the 200m at the Horned Frog Invitational last weekend.
Craddock, a senior from Farmersville, set a new personal record in the 200m dash with a mark that leads the conference by over 0.3 seconds. Her time is the eighth-fastest time in school history and currently ranks 37th in the nation this year.
One week after wrapping up an historic season, three Louisiana Tech Baseball pitchers capped off the 2016 campaign by being selected on the final day of the 2016 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft Saturday afternoon.
Adam Atkins was the first name off the board for Tech after the senior closer was drafted in the 18th round by the New York Mets as the 550th overall pick. A pair of junior pitchers in Braden Bristo (698th overall) and Phillip Diehl (818th overall) followed closely behind when the two were drafted by the New York Yankees in the 23rd and 27th rounds, respectively.
ATLANTA (AP) — Former Grambling Lab High School and Louisiaana Tech standout Paul Millsap became an All-Star in his first two years with Atlanta and helped lead the Hawks to their first Eastern Conference finals.
He’s back for at least two more years on a new contract which doubles his annual pay.
The Hawks have reached an agreement to re-sign Millsap, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The person requested anonymity because the deal can’t be finalized until July 9.
