Optional Musical Accompaniment
We’re getting close to the end of the regular season, as Vanderbilt’s three-game series at Ole Miss this weekend is the second-to-last of the season. First pitch tonight in Oxford is at 6 PM CT, with Kumar Rocker on the mound for the Commodores, and tonight’s game will air on the SEC Network. Meanwhile, Vanderbilt gets some good news with Jack Leiter returning to action on Saturday.
Lacrosse opens the NCAA Tournament today with a game against Jacksonville in Gainesville, Florida, at 5:30 PM CT on ESPN3. Win that, and the Commodores will face either Mercer or Florida on Sunday.
Women’s golf did not advance out of the Columbus Regional, but Louise Yu and Celina Sattelkau will play in next week’s NCAA Championship as individuals. Soccer’s Haley Hopkins is a third-team All-American.
Football landed its seventh commitment in the 2022 recruiting class on Thursday with Spring (TX) Klein Oak defensive end Dorian Gates announcing his commitment. Gates isn’t ranked in the 247 Sports composite yet but has good length (6’4”) and should fill out his body once he gets into a college weight room.
I am now 100% unavailable as a recruit and 200% committed to Vanderbilt— Dorian Gates ☆☆☆ (@d1kid30) May 13, 2021
Thank you to the Klein oak Coaching staff, My parents, My brother, friends and supporters.
