It was Friday afternoon when WR Janiran Bonner made Georgia Tech fans very happy. The four-star from Cedar Grove High School (Ellenwood, GA) announced that he would be coming to the Flats over offers from schools including Arkansas, Oklahoma, and georgia. Bonner currently holds a 0.9125 composite rating from 247Sports and a 5.8 rating from Rivals. Bonner has good hands, and looks to be a great pickup for the Jackets. This is the third commit in Tech’s 2022 class, and second four-star (RB Antonio Martin). It’s only April, so look for Geoff Collins & co. to try and add many more players of Bonner’s caliber to the 2022 signing class before December. Welcome to the Flats, Janiran!
The Georgia Tech Baseball team is back to their winning ways after a series victory over the Virginia Tech Hokies this past weekend. Tech had two games where the bats were firing on all cylinders, winning with 15 and then 11 runs. The weekend’s lone loss came on Saturday afternoon, as the Jackets were held to zero runs on four hits. All in all, the entire weekend was a much better showing for a Beesball team that was losing games left and right. It looks like the hitting is back, with the pitching still needing a little work. Luckily, the Jackets have a chance to completely get their game back with a contest at Georgia State on Wednesday night (6 p.m. ET).
It’s tournament time for the Georgia Tech Women’s Tennis team. The Jackets will be making the short trip to Rome, Georgia later this week to participate in the 2021 ACC Women’s Tennis Championships. This year, Tech received a six-seed for the tournament, which means they get a first round bye. On Thursday, the Jackets will face the winner of the Clemson/Virginia Tech first round matchup. Good luck, ladies!
The Georgia Tech Track and Field teams hosted the Georgia Tech Invitational this past weekend, with many teams competing and many successes for the Jackets. Tech star Bria Matthews won the triple jump event, continuing her winning ways. Another Jacket that had a great showing was Tyson Spears, who won the 200m and set a new personal best. Congratulations to all the Jackets who competed!
What a tournament from former Yellow Jacket Stewart Cink! With his son Reagan (another former Jacket) caddying, Cink never looked back and won the RBC Heritage in wire-to-wire fashion. That’s his second victory of the season. Well done, Stewart!
