Tech Bowling Nationally Ranked
RUSTON, La. – The Louisiana Tech bowling team participated in the Valley Classic in Greenwood, Miss., this weekend and knocked off some top ranked teams.
Victories over then No. 8 Arkansas State and then-ranked No. 15 Texas Southern helped Tech improve to 22-14 on the season and earned a No. 13 ranking in the most recent National Ten Pin Coaches Association poll.
“The biggest thing to come from this weekend was one of the top coaches said we were a dangerous team,” said Tech bowling coach Shawn Jackson. “But we don’t want to be dangerous; we want to be good. And as far as being ranked, that is a credit to my girls and how hard they work.”
In this week’s poll, Texas Southern improved to No. 8 with victories over other top teams during the tournament, and Arkansas State fell to No. 16. Other ranked teams playing in the Valley Classic were No. 2 Vanderbilt, No. 3 Nebraska and No. 10 Minnesota State.
