On Saturday, about 3,000 students walked across a stage in McCamish Pavilion and officially became Georgia Tech graduates. That moment is the culmination of years of hard work and dedication that is extremely special for both the students, their families, and their friends. We here at From the Rumble Seat would like to extend our congratulations to any readers who “Got Out” this weekend and take a moment to recognize the 19 student athletes who joined the ranks of Georgia Tech alumni:

Whether you’re returning to campus for graduate school (Andrew Marshall, for one, will be back) or moving on to the next stage in your life, congratulations on your graduation!
Two Yellow Jacket baseball players were named to the Collegiate Baseball 2018 preseason All-American Third Team on Monday. Junior C Joey Bart and senior 2B Wade Bailey were each recognized by the publication. Bart was the team’s best power hitter last season, leading the team with 13 home runs while providing strong defense behind the plate. Bailey was named a second team All-American by Collegiate Baseball after the 2017 season, in which he led Georgia Tech with a 0.347 batting average at the top of the order. Bart and Bailey will be key figures for a Tech team looking to bounce back from a disappointing 2017 season.
If you’ve found yourself on a long drive with a hankering for some ACC Talk, have I got some news for you! Starting early next year, SiriusXM ACC Radio will launch as an exclusive channel for everything ACC sports, 24/7. The channel will feature live play-by-play broadcasts across a variety of sports as well as coaches shows, press conferences, classic game re-broadcasts, and the normal sports talk radio shows. The SEC and Pac-12 will also be getting their own stations if you want to branch out from the ACC.
