Georgia Tech Post-game Notes

Georgia Tech captured its first NCAA National Team Title–of any sport–with a 4-2 win over UCLA Tuesday night. (Tech has won four national titles in football, but those aren’t awarded by the NCAA).

Tech was playing in an NCAA title game for just the third time in school history. (The men’s basketball team lost in 2004 and the baseball team was defeated in 1994 in the Jackets’ two previous NCAA title game appearances).

The Yellow Jackets finished the season with a record-high 29 wins in 2007, including finishing on a 21-match winning streak.

Prior to this year’s tournament, Georgia Tech had never advanced past the Round of 16 in the NCAA Women’s Tennis Championships.

Tech earned its ninth win of the season when losing the doubles point.

Wins by Amanda McDowell, Kristi Miller, Christy Striplin and Alison Silverio handed the Jackets the win.

Silverio (No. 2 singles), McDowell (No. 4 singles) and Striplin (No. 5 singles) were named to the NCAA All-Tournament team, with Silverio earning MVP honors.

Kristi Miller improved to 31-10 in singles, Alison Silverio moved to 27-10, Amanda McDowell finished 39-10 and Christy Striplin finished the season at 35-11.

Silverio clinched the match for the Jackets for the second time in the last four matches (She finished the NCAA Tournament with a 3-0 singles record.)

McDowell won 11-straight matches to finish the season, and dropped just 10 games in her six NCAA matches combined.
