RUSTON, La. - After two weeks competing at a pair of the most premier track and field meets in the country in the Texas and Florida Relays, Louisiana Tech will return to the Pelican State for a little local flavor as Tech heads to Northwestern State for the Demon Invitational at the Walter P. Ledet Track Complex in Natchitoches.

Louisiana Tech will compete against the host Demons and Louisiana-Monroe in a scored meet with field events starting at 10 a.m. and running events starting at 1 p.m.

This will be the first time the three schools will face each other in a scored meet since Louisiana Tech hosted the season-opening Jim Mize Invitational on March 20-21 in Ruston. That meet saw the LA Tech men defeat both Louisiana-Monroe, 86-66, and Northwestern State, 96-54. Meanwhile the LA Tech women beat Louisiana-Monroe, 82.5-54.5, while tying Northwestern State, 74-74.

Tech's men enter the meet with a 4x100m relay time that currently ranks 29th in the world and 13th in the country while Mia Adams' long jump mark ranks 16th in the nation among the women.
