@LATechSB Hosts Grambling State Wednesday

April 3, 2018

RUSTON, La. – Louisiana Tech steps away from Conference USA action Wednesday when the Lady Techsters host Grambling State at 6 p.m. at the Lady Techster Softball Complex.

Admission is free.

Fans can watch an online stream of the game through a paid subscription to CUSATV.com or follow through GameTracker at LATechSports.com.

Tech (19-17, 7-5) swept a three-game series from Southern Mississippi during Easter Weekend in Ruston, defeating the Golden Eagles 4-1, 4-3 and 8-4. Tech is 10-2 at home this year and has won 31 of the past 38 games in Ruston dating back to the start of last season.

Junior Taria Page had a big weekend at the plate, driving in a team-high six runs to give her a team-leading 24 RBI on the season. Page leads all Conference USA players with 16 RBI in league-only games.

Junior Morgan Turkoly (.373, 23 runs, 11 RBI), freshman Sloane Stewartson (.361, 14 RBI), senior Ali Galaz (.270, 5 doubles, 15 runs) and sophomore Kimmie Atienza (.264, 11 walks) are LA Tech’s top offensive players based on batting average.

Freshman Erin McDonald is slated to make her first career start in the circle. The Norman, Oklahoma native has seen action in just one game this year, working in relief in a loss to Top 10 ranked Texas A&M in early March.

Grambling State (8-19) enters the game on an eight-game losing streak as the Tiger have dropped their first eight games in Southwestern Athletic Conference play.



Hailey Haynes (.345, 13 RBI), Monique Smith (.291, 12 RBI), Ally Hartley (.288, 15 RBI) and Morgan Adams (.270, 2 HR, 15 RBI) lead Grambling State offensively.

In the circle, GSU is led by Caitlin McDowell (6-7, 4.06 ERA), D’Maria Matthews (2-8, 9.82) and Hannah Martin (0-4, 19.32).

Tech leads the all-time series against Grambling State 17-0, including a 13- mark in Ruston.
