RUSTON -- The Louisiana Tech women's soccer team will participate in three tournaments and play one match during the upcoming spring season, Tech head coach Kevin Sherry announced on Tuesday.
"The spring season gives us a great opportunity to try formations and tactics, which we have been working on in the offseason," Sherry said. "The season is all about learning and developing as a team and as individuals."
Tech will kick off the season when they participate in a 6 v. 6 indoor tournament in Shreveport against Centenary. On March 21, they will once again partake in the 11 v. 11 Louisiana College Cup in Lafayette.
Sherry and Co. will be able to test what they have learned in the two previous tournaments when they play a regulation-style match against Centenary in Shreveport on April 1. Before the team concludes the spring season, they will play at University of Central Arkansas in a 7 v. 7 tournament April 4.
LA Tech will face college teams from Louisiana and Arkansas at the three tournaments.
"After conditioning hard this winter, our players are eager to play," Sherry said. "The games will allow each of them to gauge and monitor their own development as players physically, technically and tactically, which will in turn be a great confidence builder for the fall."
