ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia will be home this week as it opens
its quest for a sixth trip to the College World Series. Georgia Tech will be on the road -- but it may be a short trip to a familiar setting.
Georgia was one of 16 teams named today to host NCAA regionals,
beginning Friday. Georgia will welcome two teams to Foley Field for
the regional, and it wouldn't be a surprise if one of the two is
Georgia (35-21-1) will play in its ninth NCAA tournament,
including its fourth under coach Perno, who led the Bulldogs to the
Southeastern Conference regular-season championship. The full field of 64 teams and regional pairings will be announced tomorrow.

North Carolina, Miami, North Carolina State and Florida State. Georgia Tech (39-19) had hoped to also host a regional.
