Gordon Lee Pitcher Emma Minghini Signs With Georgia Tech


Chickamauga, GA-(WDEF-TV) Gordon Lee softball pitcher Emma Minghini has signed with Georgia Tech. She’s one of three local players headed to Tech joining Sophia Voyles of Coahulla Creek and Ella Edgmon of Sequatchie County. The trio helped Georgia Tech land a top twenty recruiting class. Minghini heads to the Flats with four state championships, and a career ERA of 0.81.

Said Minghini:”It has been my dream school ever since I was a little girl, and the education there is outstanding and the coaches are great. Atlanta’s atmosphere is just awesome. We always have that championship mindset at Gordon Lee because every year we come in and Coach Mull just knows we can win another state championship. So I think that will help me have a winning mindset going off to college.”

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
