Coming off a stellar fall slate, Louisiana Tech head coach Amanda Stone announced the 2023 spring schedule that features 12 home matches at the LA Tech Tennis Complex.

“We are excited for the spring after the momentum we built during the fall season,” said Stone. “We have added several quality opponents to our competitive schedule. We want to keep pushing and testing ourselves. This team has accomplished a lot recently, but there is still a lot ahead of us and I am excited to see our players rise to the challenge.”

LA Tech will have 19 days of competition, including five doubleheaders. For the sixth straight year, the Lady Techsters will open up the spring slate in Tulsa, Oklahoma at the Hurricane Invite. The round robin will include host school Tulsa along with Omaha and Wyoming.

Six straight home matches follow, starting with the home opener on Jan. 21 against Stephen F. Austin. LA Tech will then host Missouri State and Dillard on Jan. 28, UL-Lafayette and Southern Arkansas on Feb. 5, and AAC foe Houston on Feb. 11.

The Lady Techsters will stay on the road for the next month, first heading back to Tulsa to face Wichita State and Oral Roberts on Feb. 19 and 20, respectively.

LA Tech then goes to the state of Florida for three matches against South Florida, Toledo, and Stetson, before finishing up the long road swing with return matchups at Tarleton State on March 11 and at ULM on March 15.

The team will then have another string of home matches against Northwestern State, Incarnate Word, Tyler Junior College and LSU-Alexandria before turning over the calendar into April where they will travel to face C-USA foe UAB on April 1 and West Alabama on April 2.
