DENTON, Texas — Just like last year in the first round of the Conference USA Tournament, the Louisiana Tech women’s tennis team found themselves down 2-0 in the match against Charlotte.
Despite reeling off three straight singles wins, the Lady Techsters were not able to complete the comeback again as they fell 4-3 to the 49ers on Thursday morning at the Waranch Tennis Complex.
Tech (12-13) ended up dropping the doubles point to go down early, resulting in a need for four singles victories.
However, the six singles matches split giving the edge to Charlotte (11-9).

Save money, grow a garden

Hawley, Heather.jpg

Shopping has never been an easy task for me. I dislike shuffling around the aisles searching for the best deal I can get in big-box stores that charge too much for too little.
While I will never be able to completely separate myself from such shopping excursions, my husband and I have decided to try something a little different for some of the products we buy most — grow our own.
