    • Georgia Tech has won three of its last four games, including a 7-0 victory over No. 21 Notre Dame on March 8. The Jackets most recently swept Virginia in a midweek double-header (10-2, 3-2).

    • The Yellow Jackets are featuring four players hitting above .300, including Hayley Downs, who is batting .418. Alysha Rudnik is slugging .683 with a team-high 19 RBIs, while the team has posted 24 home runs through 21 games.

    • The Terrapins are just 18-37 all-time against Georgia Tech, but took 2-of-3 last season in Atlanta, Ga. The Yellow Jackets had previously won 20 straight games in the series before last season.
