Time flies. One moment, Geoff Collins was snubbing Pat Narduzzi’s handshake, and the next, it’s springtime in Atlanta. Tonight, to celebrate the spring (and a good spring practice period), Bobby Dodd Stadium is opening its doors for the annual Georgia Tech Spring Game. While this year’s game can only be attended by students and those with season tickets, it will be shown starting at 6 p.m. ET on the ACC Network. One thing to look out for is how both the offensive and defensive lines play, they were sources of consternation during the 2020 season. Hopefully, new additions to both sides will lead to improved play.
While the Spring Game is being played, another heated competition will be going on across the Georgia Tech campus. The Tech Baseball team, fresh off of a series win at Virginia Tech, is facing the Florida State Seminoles this weekend. Tonight’s first pitch is at 7:30 p.m. ET (ACCNX), Saturday and Sunday’s games will start at 4:00 p.m. ET and 1 p.m. ET, respectively (both on ACCNX). This is a crucial series for the Jackets, as the Seminoles are currently ranked no. 17 in the nation (baseball rankings are weird). Taking two of three here would be a big boost to moral and to potential postseason prospects. Good luck, Jackets!
After gaining a first-round bye in the ACC Tournament, the Georgia Tech Men’s Tennis team took advantage of the rest by beating the Miami Hurricanes. This was a nail biter from start to finish, with Tech winning the doubles point, but singles being fairly split. Keshav Chopra, a redshirt freshman from Marietta, was able to come back from an early deficit and defeat Miami’s Stefan Milicevic. Chopra’s win clinched the match for the Jackets, their first ACC Tournament team victory since 2018. Today, Tech will take on no. 1 seed Virginia, beginning at 2:30 p.m. ET. Keep it up, Jackets!
It was much less stressful for the Tech Women’s Tennis team yesterday, as they made quick work of the Virginia Tech Hokies. The Jackets swept the doubles matches, and won three singles matches to seal the victory. Carol Lee had a good day, winning her doubles match, and taking her singles match 6-1, 6-2. Today, the Jackets have an early starting, facing off against N.C. State starting at 11:30 a.m. ET.
