• The White & Gold are one home run away from tying the 2019 season for the most HRs in a single season in the Morales era (61). That would also tie this years’ squad for the sixth-most home runs in program history.

• Dobbins leads the ACC and is 5th in the country with 43 RBI, tied for the second-most by a Jacket in a single season over the last 10 years. Black is close behind at 40 RBI, the eighth most in Division I. Tech is the only Power 5 program with multiple players in the Top 10 for RBI.

• Dobbins delivered her third grand slam of the season last Wednesday at Coastal Carolina, tying the program record for the most grand slams in a single season, set back in 2011.

• Georgia Tech leads the ACC in walks (132) and double plays turned (19), the 4th most in Division I.

• Sara Beth Allen owns the 3rd most walks across all of Division I, drawing 28 free bases. She has the 23rd-best on-base pct in DI at .536, while hitting 10 home runs, the 24th most in DI.
