Technical Tidbits 4/16: Georgia Tech Volleyball falls in NCAA Tournament

It was a great run for the Jackets.

In a season that followed a National Invitational Volleyball Championship, an NCAA Tournament berth was expected. Even though COVID threw a wrench in the normal schedule, the Jackets were successful and made the NCAA Tournament. They finished the regular season 14-5 and beat Lipscomb in their first round matchup (the first Tech NCAAVB Tourney win in almost 17 years), behind powerful play from Julia Bergmann. Tech could not get the job done against no. 3 seed Minnesota, who could go on to win the championship in just a few days. The Jackets fought hard, but the Golden Gophers were superior, sweeping the match. While tough, there is a lot to build upon for next season. Congratulations, Jackets!

The Georgia Tech Baseball team is doing its best to crawl out of a major slump. After a loss to Auburn Tuesday evening, Tech is now 3-7 in their last ten games. The Jackets have a chance to change their play this weekend against the Virginia Tech Hokies in Blacksburg. VPISU is currently 19-10 overall, with a sweep of no. 19 Pittsburgh and a series win over no. 24 Florida State. In short, the Hokies will be no pushover for a team of Jackets looking to get back on their feet. The three game series will take place from Friday to Sunday, with all games streamed on ACCNX (6 p.m. ET, 3 p.m. ET, and 1 p.m. ET).

Another Yellow Jacket team that plays a similar sport will also be headed to Blacksburg this weekend to face the Virginia Tech Hokies. The Tech Softball team has struggled this year (12-20) and will face a challenge in the no. 15-ranked Hokies. VPISU has a 25-6 record, and could cause major problems for the faltering Jackets. There are four games from Friday to Sunday (doubleheader on Saturday), with everything being streamed on the ACCNX (6 p.m. ET, 1 p.m. ET, 3 p.m. ET, 12 p.m. ET). Good luck, Jackets!

It’s that time again: Georgia Tech is undergoing a brand refresh. The school is doing this as part of its 10-year strategic plan that was released in 2020, so hopefully all changes will be made by early 2022 at the latest. If you would like to put input into the refresh, check out the link above!

The emphasis on branding within the Tech football program is a great draw for recruits who are looking towards the future.
