University of Georgia’s Ike Cousins Head Baseball Coach Scott Stricklin has tested positive for COVID-19. He is currently in isolation and will miss this weekend’s Southeastern Conference series with Tennessee.
Contact tracing has been completed, and no other baseball student-athletes or coaches have been impacted. Associate head coach Scott Daeley will assume head coaching duties in Stricklin’s absence.
The action is consistent with COVID-19 management requirements developed by the SEC’s Medical Guidance Task Force and the Georgia Department of Public Health guidelines.
Georgia opens SEC play tonight in Athens against the Volunteers with first pitch slated for 6:02 p.m. and be available on SEC Network+ and the Georgia Bulldog Sports Network.
