Storylines

• Georgia Tech has hit 74 home runs, the 5th-most in program history and the most in a single season under Aileen Morales.
• Those 74 home runs are the fourth most in Division I behind only Miami (OH), Virginia Tech and Oklahoma.
• The Yellow Jackets are currently on pace for the best offensive season in program history, batting .329 as a team (record is .323 (2011)) with a .425 on base % (record is .411 (2010)) and a .590 slugging % (record is .589 (2011)).
• The offense has risen to the top of the sport this year, ranking in the Top 20 in batting average (17th – .329), on-base % (10th – .425), slugging % (7th – .590), home runs (4th – 74), runs/game (13th – 6.86) & walks (7th – 164).
• Tech is the only Power 5 program in the country to have three players in the Top 20 for HRs in 2024: Mallorie Black (5th – 16), Sara Beth Allen (12th – 14) and Madison Dobbins (18th – 13).
• Mallorie Black leads the Power 5 with 16 home runs and leads the ACC with 52 RBI (4th most in Division I). Her 52 RBI is the most by a Yellow Jacket since 2013 and her 16 HR rank 8th most in program history.
