RUSTON, La. – Twenty-two home games highlight Louisiana Tech’s 56-game slate for the upcoming 2022 season released by the Lady Techster Softball program today.
Head coach Josh Taylor and Co. will host a two-day home tournament the second weekend of the season while hosting three-game Conference USA series against UAB, Southern Miss, UTSA and FIU.
“Our fans were only able to see 16 games at this beautiful new facility last year, so we wanted to make sure we got those numbers up for this year,” said Taylor. “When you have the best facility in the league, you want to showcase it as much as you possibly can. Our student-athletes deserve that and our fans deserve that.
“I would like to get to the point where we can play close to 50 percent of our games each year at home. So we are still a little short of that, but we are trending in the right direction. I am excited about the upcoming season, and I know our players are too.”
In addition to its own home tournament (Feb. 19-20), the Lady Techsters will play in road weekend tournaments at ULM (Feb. 11-13), Youngsville (Feb. 25-27), and LSU (March 4-6).
The Lady Techsters will face Morehead State, SIU-Edwardsville, Stephen F. Austin, Southern and Mississippi Valley State at the ULM Tournament. Two weekends later, Tech will face Alabama, Lipscomb, Eastern Illinois, Portland and St. Thomas at the Southeastern Louisiana-hosted tournament in Youngsville.
The first weekend in March sees Louisiana Tech travel south to play in the LSU Crossover. Tech opens Friday in Lafayette with a doubleheader against UL-Lafayette and then will head to Baton Rouge for doubleheaders Saturday against Troy and Sunday against LSU.
Tech will host home-and-home mid-week series against ULM, Northwestern State and Stephen F. Austin and will also host Nicholls State (3 games) and Southeastern. Tech will travel for mid-week games to Ole Miss and McNeese State.
In addition to the 12 home C-USA games, Tech will travel for three-game league series against North Texas, UTEP, Florida Atlantic and Middle Tennessee.
Season tickets for the 2022 season will go on sale in early December and more information will be released soon.
