No. 25 Georgia Tech Travels to Florida State

March 30, 2006

ATLANTA – No. 25 Georgia Tech (29-10, 5-1 ACC) will travel to Tallahassee, Fla., for a three-game Atlantic Coast Conference softball series with Florida State (25-15, 3-3 ACC) this Saturday and Sunday, April 1-2. The two teams will play two games on Saturday at JoAnne Graf Field, beginning at 1 p.m.

All Tech games can be followed at Live Stats. The Seminoles will also broadcast live audio over the internet at Live Audio.

The Yellow Jackets are 16-5 in the ACC, dating back to last season and stand atop the league standings this year at 5-1. Tech is followed by Virginia Tech (4-2), No. 23 North Carolina (4-2) and NC State (4-2). The Jackets have not dropped an ACC series since April 3, 2004, when FSU swept Tech in Tallahassee, 4-0 and 2-1¬, a span of 11 series.

Rookie Whitney Haller leads the league in home runs (12), RBI (40), slugging percentage (.815) and runs scored (41) as a freshman. Haller, a native of Marietta, Ga., ranks second in the ACC with a .420 batting average and fifth with a .489 on base percentage.

The ACC Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year candidate is just six runs scored of breaking the single-season school record (46-Tara Knudsen-2002) and ranks fourth all-time on the single-season home run list with 12. Haller needs five more dingers to set a new school record and just one more save to become the record holder for a single season.

Sophomore Whitney Humphreys continues to lead Tech with 13 wins in the circle and only two defeats. The Shady Spring, W. Va., native has a team low 1.74 earned run average and is holding opponents to a .208 average.

The 25th-ranked Yellow Jackets will return to Atlanta for a non-conference doubleheader against Chattanooga on Tuesday, April 5. The games will be played at Glenn Field and will start at 2 p.m.
