As the PGA tour events continue this summer, here are more updates of former Tech golfers currently on the professional tour. Among the better results from last week, Cameron Tringale finished tied for 5th in the Rocket Mortgage Classic, scoring a 17-under-par 271. The finish bolstered him to a No. 103 ranking in the FedEx Cup standings.
I like to include these kinds of stories for the Tidbits as they emphasize the numerous opportunities that are available to Georgia Tech students, including student-athletes. Tech diver Carly Doi is keeping busy this summer with an internship with Adidas at their North American headquarters in Portland, Oregon.
Though she is a computer science major, the internship is more marketing related and is more in line with her industrial design minor. Doi credits Tech’s GTAA’s Total Person Program and its program coordinator Maureen Tremblay for helping her land the internship.
In total, a record number of 107 Tech student-athletes are working as interns this summer. Again, another great example of how Tech provides several opportunities that can help its student-athletes prepare for their future.
On Tuesday, it was announced that five Yellow Jacket baseball players had been selected to the All-ACC Academic Team. The requirements are a 3.0 cumulative grade-point average and a 3.0 GPA the previous semester. Beyond this, the athlete’s performance is taken into consideration to decide on the final team.
Here are the five Yellow Jackets representing Tech:
- Michael Guldberg, sophomore (industrial engineering)
- Brant Hurter, sophomore (business administration)
- Chase Murray, junior (business administration)
- Cort Roedig, freshman (aerospace engineering)
- Luke Waddell, sophomore (business administration)
And in more baseball news, Luke Waddel was selected to the 2019 Collegiate National Team roster. Congratulations!
From the GT Twitter-sphere, here is a great tweet from CGC of the team displaying its support for Team USA:
