LA Tech to Host WAC Softball Championships

May 3, 2013

RUSTON - Louisiana Tech will serve as the host institution for the 2013 Western Athletic Conference Softball Tournament as the Lady Techster Softball Complex will be the site for the four-day event running May 8-11.

The top six teams (out of eight) will qualify for the double elimination tournament and the winner of the event will earn the automatic bid to the 2013 NCAA Tournament. Tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased by calling the Tech Ticket Office at 318-257-3631, emailing or logging onto

The Louisiana Tech Ticket Office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Ticket prices for the tournament are as follows:

• All-Session -- $25 for adults; $10 for youth (18 and under) and $5 for WAC students with a valid ID

• Single-Day -- $10 for adults; $5 for youth (18 and under)

• General Admission (outfield hill) -- $5 per day

WAC student tickets can only be purchased in person at the Tech Ticket Office or at the softball stadium on game-days during the tournament as buyers have to present a valid student ID.

All tickets purchased at the stadium during the tournament must be paid for with cash. Credit cards can only be used for pre-purchased tickets prior to the event.

This will mark the first time that Louisiana Tech has hosted the WAC Softball Tournament although the Lady Techsters have qualified for the event each of the last seven years (LA Tech joined Fresno State and Hawaii as the only schools to qualify for all seven).

Tech is 10-11 all-time in WAC Tournament games with all 10 of its wins coming against higher seeds. The Lady Techsters won the 2008 WAC Tournament hosted by Hawaii in Honolulu.
