Panther Family,


Happy New Year!  It’s hard to believe that 2019 is upon us, but we quickly realize that we’re back in the flow of things when all our student-athletes returned last week. The energy that college students bring to our lives is something that cannot be replicated. So even with the colder, grey weather days outside, full activity is alive within Panther Athletics.  For illustration, in addition to basketball games, here are the competition start dates for our spring teams:


  • Women’s Golf:  February 18
  • Beach Volleyball:  February 22
  • Softball:  February 7
  • Women’s Tennis:  January 18
  • Women’s Track and Field:  January 11
  • Baseball: February 15
  • Men’s Golf: February 24
  • Men’s Tennis: January 26


As customary, our men’s basketball team stands atop the Sun Belt Conference standings.  To simplify things, we have home THERS-day games on Jan. 24, Feb. 13, and Feb. 28, along with home Saturday games on Jan. 26, Super Bowl Saturday Feb. 2, against our rivals, Feb. 15, and March 2. Please mark these dates on your calendars and come support the Panthers. We definitely get each team’s best effort, so every game is important and great entertainment.


To celebrate National Signing Day, we will host our annual Football Celebration on Wednesday, February 6 beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the University Club at Georgia State Stadium. This is a great event to be together and welcome the newest Panthers to the Georgia State Family.


Finally, with the help of our friends with CSX, we made a slight renovation to our Beach Volleyball Complex. I think you will agree these new murals are creative additions to the facility.




Go Panthers!
