LA Tech Travels to Grambling State for Midweek

RUSTON, La. – Louisiana Tech will step out of Conference USA action Wednesday when the Lady Techsters make the short drive over to play Grambling State at 3 p.m. at GSU Softball Field.

                Tech (26-9) has won four straight games, including a three-game sweep over league foe UTSA this past weekend, while scoring double digits in runs in all four games. The Lady Techsters lead C-USA with a team .313 batting average while also topping all league teams with an average of 6.45 runs per contest.
