GREENSBORO, NC (Apr. 3) – Georgia Tech’s Kori Jacobson and Tiffany Goodman have been named the ACC Softball Player and Pitcher of the Week after both helped the Yellow Jackets to a 3-1 record last week and their first two wins in conference play, a sweep of Florida State.
Jacobson, a sophomore from Chandler, Ariz., turned in a solid week at the plate for Georgia Tech, as she went 7-for-13 for a batting average of .538 last week. Her top performance came on Saturday as she went 2-for-4 at the plate with a triple, two runs scored and a pair of RBI as the Yellow Jackets picked up an 8-2 win over Florida State, to even their ACC record at 2-2. On the season, she is currently riding a career-high eight game hitting streak.
Goodman, a freshman from Pleasanton, Calif., turned in a solid week on the mound for the Yellow Jackets, as she picked up a pair of victories including a complete-game win in the first game of the doubleheader with Florida State. In that contest, the rookie hurler scattered five hits and allowed only one run while striking out three batters to claim the 2-1 victory. Earlier in the week, Goodman tossed another complete game, as she allowed two runs on seven hits while also striking out three in a 6-2 victory over Southwest Missouri State. Goodman had an impressive 1.19 ERA for the week and has now won her last three starts.
