NATCHITOCHES, La. - Buoyed by a trio of wins in the 100m, 4x100m relay and 4x400m relay, Louisiana Tech senior Victoria Wade was named the Outstanding Female Performer of the Meet from the Leon Johnson Invitational. The announcement came from Northwestern State University officials Monday afternoon.

Victoria Wade claimed three wins in all three races she competed in as Louisiana Tech participated in the Leon Johnson Invitational in Natchitoches, Louisiana. The senior from Shreveport, Louisiana ran the second leg of the 4x100m relay that posted a new meet record and season best time of 44.76. That time improves on Tech's conference-leading relay time and ranks 31st in the nation. Wade also ran the third leg of the winning 4x400m relay that posted a time of 3:44.02, beating Louisiana-Monroe by a dominating seven seconds, and won the 100m by six-tenths of a second with a time of 11.74.

Louisiana Tech returns to action on May 2 when LA Tech heads to Fort Worth, Texas for the Horned Frog Invitational hosted by TCU.
