Louisiana Tech University
2010-11 OUTLOOK Coming off of the most successful season in program history, the Louisiana Tech bowling team entered the 201011 campaign with high expectations following a breakout season that saw upset wins over traditional powers Nebraska, Central Missouri and Valparaiso. This year’s squad features immense promise and shows the growth of the program under seventh-year head coach Shawn Jackson. “We are thrilled that the season is upon us,” said Jackson. “Our team has been working hard throughout the offseason in addition to putting in the time and effort during individual workouts. We are ready to finally compete against other schools.” The Lady Techsters return five letterwinners from last season’s squad that finished the season as the 18th-ranked team in the land according to the National Tenpin Coaches Association Poll (NTCA). Amongst the returnees are juniors Amy Day and Houston Granger and sophomores Caitlin Craighead, Elizabeth Eldredge and Kayla Ghersini.
Joining the Tech roster this season will be a pair of talented freshman in Nicole Wilson and Jessica McCusker. With a potent schedule that will pit the Techsters against the nations’ best, this year’s squad is up to the challenge. “We believe that we have put together a schedule that will challenge our abilities as a team,” said Jackson. “Our team is young but we won’t back down this year and we look forward to competing with the best teams in the land.” After concluding the fall portion of the 2010-11 schedule, the Lady Techsters boast a 27-15 record and are currently the 18th-ranked team according to the NTCA. To open the season, Tech competed in the Strike Out For Breast Cancer tournament in which the Techsters placed third. Individually, Amy Day picked up MVP honors for Louisiana Tech as she averaged 173 pins in individual play while picking up a tournament-high 181 pins against Prairie View A&M.
