Athletics Sends Teams Across Country for Tournament Play
Posted May 18, 2011 | Atlanta, GA
This weekend, four Tech athletics teams will pursue victory in their respective sports. Though none will take place on campus, you can send your support to the teams online as they travel to compete for the Institute.
After earning its third consecutive ACC Championship and being ranked second in the nation, Tech’s golf team earned the top seed in the NCAA Virginia Tech Regional. The team will play throughout the weekend, beginning Thursday, May 19, through Saturday, May 21, at the Pete Dye River Course in Radford, Va. Team members Anders Albertson and Oliver Schniederjans also advanced to a sectional qualifying round for the U.S. Open on Tuesday.
The men’s tennis team will compete in its NCAA Championship this weekend in Stanford, Calif. The team will first take on the University of Southern California on Thursday at 3 p.m., followed by either Florida or Kentucky on Saturday at 3 p.m. The NCAA Singles/Doubles Championship is also in Stanford on Wednesday, May 25, at 3 p.m. This is the Yellow Jackets’ first trek to the NCAA Championship since 1994. Not to be outmatched, the women’s tennis team will compete in the third round of its NCAA Tournament on Friday. The team will go up against Duke in Stanford, Calif., at noon.
After an upset against Virginia last weekend in the ACC Tournament, Georgia Tech softball will play in the NCAA Knoxville Regional against Oklahoma State on Friday, marking the team’s tenth consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
