Head coach Jerry Miles and his Lady Techsters faced off against seven of the Top 20-ranked teams in the nation, and finished the first day of competition ranked No. 11 in the field, but a strong performance by Tech Saturday would rank them eighth in the final standings for the tournament.
"I would like to congratulate all of the ladies on a great weekend and tournament," Miles said. "Finishing in the top half of such a tremendous field is a great accomplishment, especially when playing against some of the best and well-prepared teams the NCAA has to offer."
With notable wins over No. 17 Prairie View A&M, Monmouth, Texas Southern and in-state foe Grambling State in team competition on the second day, LA Tech saw several spectacular individual performances over the course of the weekend.
In the Sam Houston State-hosted tournament, Elizabeth Eldredge was named to the all-tournament team after averaging a score of 218 for the three day event, ranking her third among all bowlers in competition.
Tech will take a winter break before resuming tournament play at the Mid-Winter Classic Jan. 11-13 in Jonesboro, Ark.
