RUSTON, La. - Louisiana Tech's track and field teams head to Baton Rouge this weekend to compete in the LSU Relays as Tech opens the 2011 outdoor track and field season. The women's program is also beginning its quest to win its seventh consecutive Western Athletic Conference outdoor track and field championship and its 13th title in 14 tries overall.

The last time Tech competed on the track, Chelsea Hayes finished eighth in the long jump at the NCAA Indoor Championships. A redshirt junior indoors but a senior outdoors, Hayes looks to repeat her success during the outdoor season.

The LSU Relays, one of the nation's early season challenges, will be the team's only warm up leading into the team's lone home meet of the year. Tech will host the Jim Mize Invitational on April 2 at the Jim Mize Track and Field Facility.
