THE FLATS – Georgia Tech softball and coach Aileen Morales announced the signing of USC Upstate grad transfer infielder Tiffany Domingue to the roster on Wednesday.
Domingue comes to The Flats on the heels of a decorated career with the Spartans, including three all-conference selections and an all-freshman nod amongst the Big South throughout her four collegiate seasons. Most recently, the incoming Yellow Jacket was named Big South all-conference second team, appeared on the Big South all-tournament team and was once voted Big South player of the week during her final season at USC Upstate. Domingue landed Big South first team all-conference honors the year prior, following up a lauded 2021 season as she garnered Big South second team all-conference honors, was voted onto the Big South all-tournament team, landed on the Big South all-freshman team and picked up a pair of Big South freshman of the week recognitions.
En route to all those honors, Domingue batted near the .350 mark in three of her first four seasons. A year ago, the steady presence at the plate piled up 58 hits with 13 doubles, a triple and 15 home runs for 46 RBI to bat .347 on the season. Domingue also made her mark on the base path with double-digit steals, registering 11.
As a junior, the consistent bat racked up 61 hits, 10 doubles, a pair of triples and eight home runs for 43 RBI and a .365 average at the dish. Domingue stole all eight bases she attempted to swipe as well.
In her second collegiate season, the York, S.C., native earned 39 starts as she picked up 38 hits, 10 doubles, two triples and six dingers for 33 RBI, also stealing every base she attempted with four that year.
Although Domingue’s freshman season was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the former Spartan started all 24 games. Despite the abbreviated season, the future Jacket turned in 27 hits, six doubles and three home runs for 21 RBI for a scorching .360 batting average to begin her college career.
Domingue joins Georgia Tech’s 2023 signing class that was ranked 30th by Extra Inning Softball in the fall, with all three of Tech’s 2023 incoming freshmen being ranked in the top 50 of the same publication’s 2023 Extra Elite 100. The class provides depth to different levels of the field being composed of one pitcher, one outfielder and two infielders.
