Are spring and summer the slow period for collegiate sports fanatics?
The football and basketball seasons are over…only baseball is really active as one of the “Big Three” sports.
The baseball team is certainly playing well and are sitting at 18-4 (8-2 ACC) with a Top 5 national ranking. The rainout against UGA this past week took a little wind out of the season’s sails but with four ACC teams ranked in the RPI Top 10, there is a TON of great baseball coming up. I only hope that we’re able to make up the UGA game without giving them a doubleheader on their own field. I hate the fact that we lost our home game this season because of the weather.
Men’s golf is doing well and are hosting the United States Collegiate Championship this coming weekend. While the team is a bit behind where we’re accustomed to seeing them, the squad does boast one of the top players in the nation in Cameron Tringale. Tringale is ranked #4 nationally.
Women’s softball is sitting at 26-9 (4-2 ACC) and are enjoying a brand new stadium, built on the site of the old O’Keefe parking lot.
The women’s tennis team is 13-5 (6-1 ACC) and Amanda McDowell is having a good campaign after winning eight of her last nine singles matches. The team is on a five match win streak after a loss to UGA earlier in the month of March.
The men’s swim team recently finished in the Top 20 at the NCAA Championships…its best finish ever.
Some of these details are probably news to many of our fellow bloggers. I’m sure most people are following recruiting and searching for spring practice details. Certainly there is plenty to talk about there. I haven’t had a chance to make it to a practice yet but am anxiously awaiting April 18th and the Spring Game.
So…how do our fellow GT fans out there in the “blogosphere” get through this spring and summer slow period? Yard work? Major League Baseball? Maybe some of the GT sports mentioned in the blog above?
