BOISE, Idaho - Louisiana Tech's track and field programs head to Boise, Idaho this week for the 2011 Western Athletic Conference Indoor Track & Field Championships with the women's program facing a tough challenge in their bid to win the program's sixth title in the last seven years.

The Lady Techsters, who have won 11 of the last 12 overall WAC titles, will face a tough test from Utah State this week as competition gets underway in Boise on Thursday. New Mexcio State and Nevada have also mounted a serious challenge to the Lady Techster reign. This could be the toughest challenge the women's team has faced since losing the 2007 indoor title.

The Lady Techsters, who have 11 seniors on their roster this year, will be led by seniors Chelsea Hayes and Tiana Davis. Hayes came five-hundredths of a second from a WAC record time in the 60m dash two weeks ago while Davis is ranked 23rd in the nation in the long jump, the highest ranking of any WAC athlete in any event.

The men's team has been strengthened by the middle distance depth of Matt Wolfe, Alwayne Green and Jermaine Morris and will make a run against perennial favorite Utah State. Senior Billy Ray Walker will be the hurdler to beat in the 60m hurdles for the Bulldogs while several Tech freshman will have a chance to score in the meet.

Updates will be available through twitter updates (@LATechPWalsh) throughout the three-day championship meet.
