Optional Musical Accompaniment
Vanderbilt women’s tennis made the NCAA Tournament for the 28th consecutive season and, as parlagi pointed out in the comments yesterday, they’re getting sent to the Columbus regional for the third year in a row. Really? Three years in a row at the same place? (And it gets even worse, of course, since the season before that Ohio State was the 2-seed in the Vanderbilt regional.) Anyway, Vanderbilt will open the tournament against East Tennessee State.
Baseball hosts Georgia State tonight at 6:00 PM CT on the SEC Network+. And some news about this weekend’s opponent:
