No. 9 Georgia Tech Heads to South Carolina for Exhibition

THE FLATS – No. 9 Georgia Tech volleyball will travel to face South Carolina in an exhibition match on Sunday at 2 p.m. in Columbia, S.C., lacing up for the final tune up before the regular season.

Admission to the match is free, and parking information is available HERE.

Georgia Tech was recently tabbed No. 9 in the AVCA Division I Coaches Preseason Top 25, the highest preseason ranking received by the Yellow Jackets in program history. The nine spot ties the sixth-highest ranking Tech has received in its 42-year history and marks the second consecutive appearance for the White and Gold in the AVCA’s top 10.

Tech boasts 13 returners from 2021’s Elite Eight squad coming into the 2022 season, including reigning ACC and AVCA region player of the year as well as first team all-American Julia Bergmann along with all-ACC second team selection Breland Morrissette and ACC all-freshman team member Bianca Bertolino. The incumbents are joined by five newcomers, including a pair of transfers in all-American Tamara Otene (Illinois State) and Tali Marmen (UCF) along with freshmen Cara BiancoAnna Boezi and Mikayla White. Reigning AVCA east coast region coach of the year Michelle Collier will lead the Jackets for her ninth season.

Following the exhibition, Tech will open the regular season on the road at the Ole Miss Invitational by taking on host Ole Miss (Aug. 26) in Oxford, Miss. The Jackets will make their official return to O’Keefe Gymnasium hosting the GT Invitational, beginning with Dayton (Sept. 2).

Tech’s schedule is highlighted by 13 matches against 2021 NCAA tournament teams, including four at home against Dayton (Sept. 2), BYU (Sept. 8), Ohio State (Sept. 11) and Pitt (Oct. 19). The Jackets will host 14 regular season matches on The Flats, most notably the aforementioned Pitt match in the Thrillerdome. The event will mark the first volleyball match in McCamish Pavilion on record since the renaming and renovation of Alexander Memorial Coliseum. The remaining 13 matches will be held in O’Keefe Gymnasium, including two home tournaments.
