Louisiana Tech hopes to duplicate its last league road trip to the Lone Star State when they travel to Denton to take on North Texas on Thursday night at 7 p.m. inside the Super Pit.
The last Texas road swing resulted in victories over UTEP and UTSA for Tech (14-4, 5-0 C-USA) that marked the first weekend sweep in a road series in Conference USA.
The Bulldogs are currently tied atop the league standings with an undefeated mark. Going back even further to last season, they have won nine straight league games with six of those coming away from home.
Just what the head coach ordered.
And that’s exactly what transpired on the Karl Malone Court at the Thomas Assembly Center on Thursday night when Louisiana Tech (9-9, 5-3) went up against San Jose State (7-12, 4-4) in an important Western Athletic Conference game.
Earlier in the week, Techsters’ Head Coach Teresa Weatherspoon expressed a need for her team to produce collectively on offense if they were to defeat the Spartans and remain in the upper half of the league standings.
Louisiana Tech University soccer coach Kevin Sherry has announced three new additions to the class of 2012 with the signings of Rosie Lethbridge, Mette Rudolfsen and Ingrid Andrea Weng to national letters of intent.
Lethbridge, a native of Brockham, England, is a forward that is transferring from the University of Portsmouth in England after playing for one season. She lettered four years at Reigate Sixth Form College under coach Lianne Wilkinson. In 2010, Lethbridge helped lead Reigate to the Surrey County Colleges Cup.
Louisiana Tech University’s class of 2011 athletics’ Hall of Fame inductees definitely have the “Wow” factor.
