Hope Rush Songalia: Hall of Fame Class of 2023

Hope Rush Songalia: Hall of Fame Class of 2023

HOPE RUSH SONGALIA, SOFTBALL (2010-13)

Perhaps the best two-way player ever to suit up for the Yellow Jackets, Rush-Songalia helped lead Georgia Tech to a pair of Atlantic Coast Conference tournament championships (2010, 2012) and two ACC regular-season titles (2010, 2011), and berths in three NCAA regional tournaments. The Marietta, Ga., product earned All-ACC honors three of her four years on The Flats, first-team honors in 2010 and 2012 and second-team in 2013, and was a third-team NFCA All-American in 2010. Her 60 career home runs, second most ever at Tech, ranks fourth all-time in the ACC, with 20 of those coming as a freshman in 2010. Rush ranks among the top five in Tech annals in slugging percentage (.633), RBI (193) and walks (124). As a pitcher, she also ranks among the top five in program history in victories (79), saves (6), appearances (139), games started (118), complete games (83), shutouts (22), innings pitched (752.2) and strikeouts (471). Rush tossed three no-hitters in her career, two against North Carolina and one against Virginia Tech.

Hope will be officially inducted along with other members of the Classes of 2022 and 2023 on October 20 at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center
