Deck McGuire, he of the unblemished record, was named the ACC’s Pitcher of the Year on Monday, a first for the Jackets.
McGuire, a right-hander, has a 10-0 record with an ACC-best 101 strikeouts. He held opponents to a .210 batting average in 2009, which is stunning considering the inflated stats that aluminum bats produce.
Joining McGuire from Tech on the first team are Luke Murton, Jeff Rowland. Derek Dietrich made second team.
The softball team will host Washington at noon on Friday in the first game of their super-regional. Game times for the next two games haven’t been set.
What are your predictions for the upcoming ACC tourney. Not sweeping Duke and earning the top seed didn’t do Tech any favors. FSU and Miami won’t be easy, but Tech did take two of three from them already this season.
