This article mentions Georgia Tech’s own Andy Archer who was recognized as the Atlantic Coast Conference Pitcher of the Week — Clemson’s first baseman Caden Grice was named as the Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Player of the Week. Archer had a 3-0 shutout performance against the Duke Blue Devils over the weekend. In that Saturday game the Yellow Jackets clinched their 14th series win of their last 15, as the article points out. Archer, a Duluth native, has been on a hot streak as of late. He’s now gone 18 consecutive innings without allowing a run. Very impressive!
Regardless of the Georgia Tech women’s basketball team’s disappointing loss to the University of South Carolina Gamecocks this weekend in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament, it was an encouraging run the team made in the postseason. And overall, it was an impressive season for the Yellow Jackets in their second year under head coach Nell Fortner. I think the future is very bright for both the men’s and women’s basketball teams. Despite the craziness that was inherent to the season due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the impact it had on games, the season was a memorable one for both basketball programs. And their trajectories looking forward is encouraging as well. #GoJackets
Georgia Tech offensive lineman Zach Quinney will be leaving the team. The article featured an interview with Quinney who spoke with the AJC on Monday. Quinney based the decision in part due to a job offer he has decided to pursue. Good luck to him in his new job and other future endeavors.
