Box Score

RUSTON – Six Louisiana Tech pitchers combined for 21 strikeouts and Katie Smith and Bayli Simon combined for seven RBI to lead the Lady Techsters to a 24-2 win over Odessa Community College Friday night in fall softball action.

At the plate, Smith recorded one hit but drove in four runs, including three with a bases clearing double, while Simon recorded two hits and three RBI. Howell and Kimmie Atienza each registered three hits in three at bats in the game.
