It’s Hurricane time for the Jackets.

It’s crunch time for the Georgia Tech Baseball team, with two ACC series remaining, the Jackets currently lead the ACC Coastal Division and have a chance to expand that lead against the Miami Hurricanes this weekend. Miami sits at fourth in the division with a 27-15 (15-14 ACC) record. The Hurricanes have been decent as of late, sweeping Appalachian State but losing two of three to the Boston College Eagles. The Jackets need to at least win the series as they continue to work towards favorable ACC and NCAA Tournament seedings. Tonight and tomorrow’s games begin at 7 p.m. ET (ACCNX), while Sunday’s contest starts at 1 p.m. ET (ACCNX). Let’s go, Jackets!

Nicole Fegans is one of the best track athletes in Georgia Tech history. Last night, the senior gained a second ACC title with a meet record in the 10,000m event. Fegans’ first ACC championship came in 2020 with a win in the women’s 3000m race. She’s got multiple Georgia Tech records, and will look for some more hardware in the upcoming NCAA Championships. Congratulations, Nicole!

The Georgia Tech Softball team gave no. 13 Clemson all they had, but the Tigers were too much for the Jackets. The ACC Tournament Quarterfinal match-up was close throughout, with Tech only falling by a score of 2-0. P Blake Neleman followed up her no-hitter performance against Syracuse with only four hits allowed to the ACC regular season champions. The bats just weren’t there for the Jackets (only one hit), and their season ends with a losing record of 20-26. While it was tough, four players with All-ACC recognition is something to build upon for the coming year.

After missing out on part of the Walker Cup due to a stomach bug that caused him to lose 20 pounds, former Jacket Tyler Strafaci made his professional debut yesterday at the AT&T Byron Nelson. Playing with Hank Lebioda and Nelson Ledesma, Strafaci shot a -2 (70) to sit T96 on the leaderboard at the end of the first round. This is a remarkable turnaround from a hospital visit in Florida last week, and speaks to Strafaci’s drive and resilience. Today, Strafaci will try to make the cut, as he’s got some work to do on a low-scoring course. He’ll begin his quest at 1:50 p.m. CT from the first tee. Good luck, Tyler!

Jalen Camp is ready for the NFL, but is the NFL ready for him?

Question of the Day: Any thoughts on Tech’s series against Miami this weekend?
