All former Louisiana Tech softball players, managers and coaches and their families are invited back for Alumni Weekend set for April 14-16 at Dr. Billy Bundrick Field.

The Lady Techsters will host UTSA in a three-game Conference USA series with games set for Friday (6 p.m.), Saturday (2 p.m.) and Sunday (1 p.m.).

“Our alumni weekend is special,” said Tech head coach Josh Taylor.  “The support we receive from our alumni is second to none, and I couldn’t be more excited to welcome back all of the amazing women that have represented Louisiana Tech softball in such a manner that makes everyone proud. This weekend is the epitome of what the LA Tech Family is all about.”

A number of events are scheduled surrounding the game on that Saturday.

Following the contest on Saturday, all former Lady Techster softball players, managers and coaches who are in attendance will be recognized on the field. Following introductions of all alumni as well as current Lady Techster players and coaches, a “team photo” will be taken on the field.

All alumni and their families will then be allowed to tour the Origin Bank Soccer and Softball Complex including locker room, team meeting room, players’ lounge, coaches’ offices, sports medicine and the indoor hitting facility.

An Alumni Cookout (RSVPs are required per the online signup form) will be held as parents of current team will volunteer their time to cook for the current team and alums and their families.

The day will be capped by “Hitting Under the Lights,” an opportunity for all former players to take some swings o Dr. Billy Bundrick Field. 

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming all of our alumni back to Ruston,” Taylor said.

All alumni will receive up to two free tickets for the weekend while additional tickets can be purchased at a discounted rate ($10).

To RSVP for the weekend, all former players, managers and coaches should fill out this form. A member of the LA Tech Ticket Office will contact alums about additional ticket needs (based on the submitted form) leading up to the weekend. Any ticket questions can be sent to Ashley Brooks at 318-257-5329 or at abrooks@latech.edu;

Questions pertaining to any other aspect of Alumni Weekend can be sent to Malcolm Butler at malcolm@latech.edu or 318-614-4513.

Last year’s inaugural Alumni Weekend was a tremendous success with more than 50 alums returning to The Billy. We hope to see everyone back this year while also seeing some “new” faces.
