LA Tech Hosts NSU in Home Opener

Feb. 5, 2018

RUSTON – The Louisiana Tech women’s tennis team will play the first of its eight home dual matches of the spring on Tuesday afternoon when they go up against in-state foe Northwestern State at 1:30 p.m. at the LA Tech Tennis Complex.

The young LA Tech (1-1) was able to build some early confidence after going on the road and handing Louisiana-Lafayette its first loss of the season.

Sophomore Nadja Manjon got the Lady Techsters on the scoreboard with a dominant 6-1, 6-1 victory at the No. 3 spot. She is now a perfect 2-0 in singles action this spring.

LA Tech Falls 4-3 to Northwestern State
The Louisiana Tech women’s tennis team was able to pick up three wins at the bottom of the singles lineup, but Northwestern State grabbed the three at the top and the doubles point to win 4-3 on Sunday afternoon at the Jack Fisher Tennis Complex.

Clinching things for LA Tech was freshman Karla De La Luz Montalvo who outlasted her opponent 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 at the No. 5 position for her second singles dual victory as well.

Meanwhile, Northwestern State (0-3) is still looking for its first win after suffering road losses to LSU, Tulane and most recently ULL.

The Lady Demons are led by junior Poline Mutel who has played from court one in singles this season. Last season, she compiled a team-best 12-6 mark in dual action.

This will be the 46th career meeting between the two program separated by less than two hours. The Lady Techsters have had the upper hand in the series as of late, winning four straight.
