🔼 Clear Eyes. The softball team is starting their weekend today at the Shriners Children’s Clearwater Invitational! They’ll face five teams, three of which are nationally ranked. They’ll start things off at 1 pm when they take on Georgia Tech on ACC Network. The Tigers put on a pitching clinic last weekend with five complete game shutouts by five different pitchers. They’ll be chasing the same success against some of the best teams in the country.

🔼 Freshman Phenom. After winning his first individual collegiate title, Jay Mendell was named the SEC Freshman of the Week! He finished the Hal Williams Collegiate with a final score of 10-under par. The freshman jumped from No. 311 to No. 194 in the recent scoreboard rankings.

🔼  Meet The Coach. Today, we’re introducing you to pitching coach Nate Yeskie. He spent 18 years working at four different schools — UNLV, Oregon State, Arizona, and Texas A&M. Get to know him better and see what his daily responsibilities look like in this episode of Uncut.
