THE FLATS – Georgia Tech softball is set to open the 2020 season with the 21st Buzz Classic after a seven-year hiatus from the tournament. The tournament is slated for Thursday – Sunday, Feb. 6-9 at Mewborn Field.
“I’m looking forward to kicking off the 2020 season with the return of the Buzz Classic,” said Georgia Tech softball head coach Aileen Morales. “This tournament ran for 20 years, and was recognized as one of the premier collegiate tournaments in the southeast during that time. I competed in the Buzz as well as many other GT softball alums, so I’m excited to add a tournament with such history back onto our schedule. The team and I are proud to open the season at the Mew with some great competition while also honoring a past tradition.”
The Jackets open the season at home for the first time since 2015. Traditionally hosted at a neutral site, the Buzz Classic will be played at Mewborn Field, home of Georgia Tech softball, for the first time in its 21-year history. For the tournament, Tech brings in University of Alabama-Birmingham, Furman, Ohio and 2019 Women’s College World Series participant Washington.
