It was an exciting night on the Flats, for the first time in over four months, there was a football game. Fans were in attendance at Bobby Dodd Stadium, and basketball coaches Josh Pastner and Nell Fortner made a play-calling cameo. QB Jeff Sims continued his outstanding play from last season, only throwing one incomplete pass on the night and accounting for three touchdowns. If Sims continues that high level of play, it will be a huge boost to the Jackets’ winning-record chances. The game was exciting, with the Sims-led “Gold” team beating the “White” team in the final few minutes of action. DL Antonneous Clayton had a good game in his return to action, even recovering a fumble. There were many positives from Friday’s game, just a few more months until September!
While the Tech Beesball team lost the series to Florida State, they did give Head Coach Danny Hall win no. 1,300 on Sunday afternoon. Friday’s game was tough for Tech, as the team was shutout with only four hits for the entire game. It was not the way to start the weekend, and the pain extended for a day as Saturday’s game was a tight loss. Tech rallied towards the end of the contest, but could not finish the job against the ‘Noles. Sunday was a real treat, with Hall’s accomplishment and the Jackets coming back from a 5-run FSU first inning. Tech’s next matchup is extremely important, as they head to Athens to face the georgia bulldwags (7 p.m. ET, ACCN) tomorrow. THWg!
The Tech Women’s Tennis team had a great showing at this year’s ACC Championships. While the championship match against the UNC Tar Heels was not particularly close, there are many positives to take from the week. Two wins against ranked teams (including no. 4 N.C. State), and the championship match appearance likely sealed a NCAA Tournament berth for the Yellow Jackets. Tech will find out the specifics of the bracket a week from today. Good work, Jackets!
Rain caused some issues at this weekend’s ACC Men’s Golf Championships, but the tournament finished on time, with Tech ending up tied for fifth. The Jackets were locked in a competition for the fourth and final spot in the match play competition with Florida State and Wake Forest throughout Sunday, but fell by one stroke to the Seminoles. This ended Tech’s tournament early, but junior Connor Howe did finish ninth place individually. While the ACC Tournament is over for Tech, they are likely looking forward to finding out their NCAA Regional placement. That will be revealed on May 5 (2 p.m. ET, Golf Channel).

It looks like Danny Hall had a good time after Sunday’s game.
