GEORGIA TECH HEAD COACH Sharon Perkins
“I thought we swung the bat pretty well tonight. We had a great atmosphere behind us with ESPN here; with the fans coming out and being vocal. Tonight was a great way to start the regional for us.”

On Jen Yee hitting tonight
“I think [Jen Yee] just missed on the at-bat before her homerun and popped one up a little bit. I’m glad she got another hack at it, especially with the top of Jacksonville State’s lineup coming up the next inning.”

On Jacksonville out-hitting Georgia Tech
“We knew that Jacksonville State had some good hitters and that they were going to hit the ball well. Even though they came away with more hits, we were glad to put a couple more runs on the board.”

On playing on ESPN
“I think being nationally televised helped the girls. They were more excited for tonight. The crowd was ready for the opportunity, and I think it’s great for the sport to get a little bit more coverage.”

GEORGIA TECH PITCHER Jessica Coan
On her relief performance
“I came in with a couple of runners on, but knew that my defense would back me up as long as I came in throwing strikes. They stepped up big tonight and made some great plays behind me to help get us the win.”

On Atlanta Regional
“We’re in a tough regional. All the teams are going to play tough. I think we’re going to have some great games all the way through.”

JACKSONVILLE STATE HEAD COACH JANA McGINNIS
“I thought we fought hard tonight. Georgia Tech just came up with the hits that hurt. Most of the time they put a run on the board by hitting homeruns.”

On playing Auburn in an elimination game Saturday
“We have to fight and show resiliency. We’ve been through a lot this season, but I tell the girls you’re remembered by how you finish. Auburn’s a good team, and this is the time of the season when every team is fighting to stretch their season out. We have to play hard and see if we can make something happen.”
