No. 14 Rice heats up to beat Bulldogs 11-2

in

HOUSTON — Louisiana Tech fought back from a four-run deficit to make it a 4-2 ball game, but John Clay Reeves’ grand slam in the seventh inning helped lead No. 14 Rice to an 11-2 victory over the Bulldogs in the series opener on Thursday night at Reckling Park.
Rice (35-17, 21-7 Confrence USA) scored six runs from the third inning to the sixth, but it was five runs the Owls put up in the seventh that extended the lead and gave the Conference USA leads a series-opening victory over Tech (15-33, 5-23 C-USA).

Drake provided much of his own offense, batting two-for three with a double and two RBIs.

Darden, Jessica 2014.jpg

I remember seven years ago contemplating what my future would hold. It hadn’t been very long since I made the ultimate decision to not attend The Citadel.
For those of you not familiar with the school, it is a public military college located in Charleston, S.C., that is equivalent to attending Annapolis or West Point — the way it was put to me back then was Annapolis was for the Navy, West Point was for the Army and The Citadel was for those wanting to join the U.S. Marine Corps after graduation.

History teacher at A.E. Phillips Lab School Kristina Kaasab said she is grateful for the opportunity her students were able to experience last week as they toured Washington D.C.
