College seniors know that a resume can never be too full and it's never too late to add on to it.
For an athlete, especially one at the top of his craft like tennis player Juan Spir, the NCAA Tournament offers one last chance to add on. Spir will get that opportunity beginning today when the NCAA Tournament kicks off at the Khan Outdoor Tennis Complex/Atkins Tennis Center in Urbana, Ill., on the campus of the University of Illinois.
Georgia Tech sophomores Anders Albertson and Ollie Schniederjans were both named to the 2013 All-Atlantic Coast Conference Men's Golf team Tuesday, as selected by the league's 11 coaches.

Finch was one of 44 players named to the Rimington Trophy's preseason watch list Tuesday morning -- the second straight year the Yellow Jacket senior has been on the list.
The Yellow Jackets have had a couple days to decompress, and they needed the time. Golf brings to bear many moments where gravity feels multiplied, yet Georgia Tech's slog through the Tallahassee NCAA regional was especially heavy.There were unique pressures ahead of time, and it turns out coach Bruce Heppler and his players talked about what he called, "the ghost in the room, the elephant," back in the hotel the night before they broke out the sticks for real.Tech wound up qualifying Saturday for the NCAA Tournament, which the school will host May 28-June 2 at the Capital City Club's Crabapple course.It will be the first time Tech has ever hosted the NCAAs (the program has hosted regionals before), which was part of the pressure pack.
A year can make a world of difference, especially in college baseball.As Georgia Tech heads into the 2013 ACC Baseball Championships, it hopes it's not TOO big a difference.Heading into the 2012 ACC Tournament, Tech's expectations were a little bit guarded. Although riding a wave of emotion, the unranked Yellow Jackets could just as easily have been on fumes after having to scratch and claw just to get in, beating Miami, 2-1, on the season's final day to secure the eighth seed. There was next-to-no pressure, considering no No. 8 seed had ever won the Tournament, only two No. 8 seeds had ever reached the title game, and Tech would have had to run a gauntlet of No. 1 Florida State, arch-rival Clemson and No. 19 Virginia in pool play, alone.Playing relaxed, and riding the hot hand and bat of Jake Davies, they would become the first No. 8 seed to win it all.This year, expectations are a little different.
Georgia Tech, which has appeared in all 34 ACC Baseball Championships since entering the league, heads to Durham, N.C. as the seventh-seed to defend its 2012 championship title. The Yellow Jackets open the tournament Wednesday versus Florida State at 11 a.m.

Screen writing might have been a better option.

The Atlantic Coast Conference has announced the pairings and game times for the 2013 ACC Baseball Championship, and Georgia Tech begins defense of 2012 title on Wednesday, May 22 versus Florida State at 11 a.m. The Durham Bulls Athletic Park is the site of the year's championship.
When you look at the numbers, Georgia Tech's work in the NCAA regional in Tallahassee was nowhere near the best we've seen from the Yellow Jackets in their golfing history. Not even top 10.
Sometimes, golf is more than digits. Take these regionals; all a team has to do is finish top five to advance to the NCAA championships, and Tech did so by finishing fourth.
North Florida won this at 830. The Jackets were at 849. Oklahoma beat South Florida in a playoff for the final spot after they tied at 854. Nobody cares about numbers so long as you're top five; it's a qualifier.
For Tech, that was major work because there was an anvil on everyone's head.

The Yellow Jackets have advanced to play in the NCAA Division I Men's Golf Championship beginning May 28.
Miami jumped on Georgia Tech with eight runs in the first two innings and held off a ninth-inning rally to defeat the Yellow Jackets, 11-7, Friday night to clinch the series win at Mark Light Stadium in Coral Gables, Fla. Daniel Palka was 2-for-4 with two runs and hit his ACC-leading 16th home run.
Georgia Tech has a chance to right a wrong when they tee off at Golden Eagle Golf and Country Club Saturday morning.
