There’s been some additions to the women’s softball team. This includes an incoming freshman and three transfer students.

  • Kennedy Cowden spent her freshman season at the University of Kentucky where she was primarily utilized as a pinch runner.
  • Caroline Davis is a freshman from Hoschton, Georgia and is a right-handed infielder.
  • Madison McPherson is a redshirt-junior. She is a utility pitcher who is transferring from u[sic]GA.
  • Lexi Ray is a right-handed pitcher who spent her freshman season at UT Martin where she pitched a perfect game on April 28th against Tennessee Tech.

Softball coach Aileen Morales had nothing but praise for the new Yellow Jackets. Welcome to The Flats!

Former Tech golfers Cameron Tringale and Richy Werenski are on track to finish in the top-125 of the FedEx Cup race. Other than that, last week wasn’t a very good week for former Yellow Jacket golfers on the PGA tour. The best finish was by Tringale who tied for 42nd. Of course, several players took last week off.

Some of the big events coming up this week on the tour include the John Deere Classic, the TPC Colorado Championship, and the Bridgestone Senior Players Championship.

This article is from a few days ago, but I’ve been meaning to include it in the Tidbits. It highlights the connections that Geoff Collins and his assistants have to Georgia Tech. As many know by now, several of the assistant coaches formerly played for Tech.

“We wanted to make sure we re-energized, re-engaged our former student-athletes, the legends that played here. We wanted to bring them back into the family,” said Collins. “Being a lifelong Georgia Tech fan, I knew how important that was. I tried to hire somebody from every generation of Georgia Tech football. All of those moves were intentional, so everybody would have somebody that they could connect with.”

I think this was a very smart move by Collins and will help build camaraderie and a strong culture. Tech is a school with many traditions, so having these guys around should help strengthen these traditions. I think it should be a very interesting first season for Collins and his staff.
