Unclutch: Losing to Duke. The baseball team lost their series to Duke over the weekend and thus proceeded to lose the ACC, the Coastal Division title, and possibly a National 8 seed in one fell swoop. The Jackets enter the conference tournament as the #4 seed overall and will face Miami on Wednesday at 12pm. The tournament is round robin and we will play Miami, Boston College, and Florida State in that order. The team with the best record will play for the championship.
Where would we be without our main man Deck McGuire? Nowhere my friends. We should all be grateful for his services.
Moving on to clutch....
GT Softball advances to the Super Regionals! They swept through the tournament and sealed the deal by holding off a pesky Boston University. They will host the national #3 seed Washington Huskies. UW battled it out long into the night with UMass, losing Game 1 and then finally lighting the scoreboard up in the 15th (yes 15th!) and racked up 5 runs to win 6-1 in Game 2. Their pitcher, Danielle Lawrie tossed all 15 innings worth and struck out 23.
Some may wonder why do we get to host the event since we are the lower seed (National #14). It's because Washington has no lights and that is a requirement to host a regional. Many years, we have had to be shipped because of that same problem, now we got preference. It's time for Tech fans to realize that and show up and support the team.
Game 1 is May 23 and 24th on an ESPN channel. All games played at the "Mew".
