BATON ROUGE — Louisiana Tech was three outs away from pulling off its biggest win in years but the 15th ranked LSU Tigers scored four runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to defeat the Lady Techsters 7-5 Tuesday night at Tiger Park.
Tech (6-5) overcame an early 3-0 deficit and scored five straight runs — including two in the top of the seventh — to take a 5-3 lead over the undefeated Tigers (11-0). However, LSU recorded four straight hits in the bottom of the frame, including Sahvannah Jaquish’s three-run, walk-off blast deep over the left field fence to end the game.
Two coaches who made a huge impact on the football program at Louisiana Tech University were honored Saturday with Lifetime Achievement Awards at the annual “Bayou Jamb” held in Monroe.
Former Bulldogs’ Head Coach A.L. Williams and ex-Tech defensive coordinator Pat Collins were recognized for their contributions to the sport and specifically for area high school programs during ceremonies at the preseason event held at Warhawks Stadium on the University of Louisiana-Monroe campus.
