It was a busy weekend as many many GT Sports were in action. Here are a few things to soak up during the early lunch hour.
Olympic Sports/ Non-revenue Sports
Swimming: Congratulations to Georgia Tech swimming as the Yellow Jackets took the program to new heights at the NCAA Swimming Championships. The team finished 19th overall. A major and specific shoutout to Gal Nevo as he churned through the water on his way to a 2nd-place medal in the 400 IM. Nevo is the first Israeli in 20 years to win a medal at the championship meet. His swim in the event gives him the 3rd fastest time in the world. Way to go Gal!
Softball: This weekend, the Jackets hosted Florida State and officially opened Shirley Clements Mewborn Field. The stadium was packed out and it just felt good to have the team on campus. They aren't shoved off to some field in Home Park anymore! The ladies won the overall series, but FSU swiped one on Sunday in extra innings. The Jackets are currently 26-9 and 4-2 in the ACC and should be on the top of the ACC Conference (as of Sunday evening).
Somehow we continue to pull 'em out. We took 2 of 3 games from the #2 Miami Hurricanes this past weekend, losing the Sunday afternoon game after a rain delay. The woes of the team continue to be consistant inconsistencies....but more on that later.
In saving the best for last....the team scrimmaged for the first time this Spring up in the Falcon's facility in Flowery Branch. Couldn't find anything from the AJC. But Coley Harvey, continues to do a solid job over at the Macon Telegraph where he discusses the week in review including the scrimmage.
