It has been said before, but it bears repeating. This Georgia Tech defense is the best in recent memory at creating turnovers by a wide margin. It has already doubled last year’s season output with 20 takeaways in just 9 games, and hopefully will continue to build on that number as the season hits the home stretch. ACC Defensive Lineman of the Week Anree Saint-Amour has been a big part of those takeaways, with two interceptions and three forced fumbles this year.

Women’s Basketball Announces Captains

It was announced yesterday that Martine Fortune, Francesca Pan, Kierra Fletcher, and Lotta-Maj Lahtinen will be the captains for the women’s basketball team this winter.
