Techster softball releases fall slate

Fall ball for Louisiana Tech begins as the calendar flips to October as new head coach Josh Taylor and Co. are set for an eight-game exhibition slate.

The action begins Oct. 1 when the Lady Techsters travel east on I-20 to face ULM at 6 p.m. at Geo Surfaces Field in Monroe.

A four-game weekend road trip to Fayetteville, Arkansas, will fill the weekend of Oct. 9 and 10 when Tech plays the host Razorbacks twice (Saturday at 4 p.m. and Sunday at 10 a.m.). Tech will also face Tulsa (Saturday at 12:30 p.m.) and Butler Community College (Friday at 11 a.m.) during the weekend tournament in Fayetteville.

The Lady Techsters will complete their fall slate with three straight home dates. Tech hosts Louisiana College on Oct. 16 (1 p.m.), ULM on Oct. 19 (6 p.m.) and Bossier Parish Community College on Oct. 26 (6 p.m.).

Tech returns 16 letterwinners, including seven every day starters, from last year’s team while welcoming five newcomers to the roster.

Taylor begins his first season in Ruston after being hired away from the University of Nevada in June.
