Going into the last month of the baseball season, restrictions on attendance at Mac Nease Baseball Park at Russ Chandler Stadium are subsiding. The changes will be in accordance with public health guidance. As the article states, the seating capacity will increase by an additional 450 seats through the end of the season. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets baseball team are in the home stretch as we enter the final month of the regular season. The team is 21-18 overall and 15-12 in conference play. Hopefully, along with the boost in attendance, there’ll be more to cheer for as the Yellow Jackets look to secure their spot in the postseason tournament.

What a way to finish off the season for Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets softball player Tricia Awald. After helping the Yellow Jackets sweep the University of Virginia last weekend, Awald was named the ACC Player of the Week. With the recognition, she joins teammates Emma Kauf and Blake Neleman who have also been named ACC Player of the Week at some point during this season. Here are some of Awald’s impressive stats from the series: she went 5-for-7 for a batting average of .714, she had two home runs, and she had a total of five RBIs. Congratulations on a very impressive performance!

In yesterday’s Tidbits, it was mentioned that the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets men’s tennis team had earned an invitation to the NCAA Tournament. In today’s news, according to the article above, both the men’s and the women’s teams have earned an invitation to the NCAA Tournament. For the women’s team, this will be an impressive 22nd consecutive time they’ve earned the invitation. That’s quite a streak. Congratulations to both the men’s and women’s team on their seasons, and good luck to them both as they enter the postseason.
