Aug. 3, 2009

ATLANTA – Georgia Tech rising senior Amanda McDowell was named to the 2009 Atlantic Coast Conference All-Academic Women’s Tennis Team, as announced Monday by Commissioner John D. Swofford.

“Amanda continues to add to her list of achievements here at Georgia Tech,” head coach Bryan Shelton said. “She continues to make the most out of her opportunities. It is nice to see her rewarded for her hard work.”

McDowell, who maintains a 3.59 cumulative GPA as an Economics and International Affairs major, was named to her third straight ACC All-Academic team. She was named to the CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine’s Academic All-District III second team earlier this summer.

Over her three seasons on the Flats, McDowell has registered 109 singles wins, which is good for third all-time in the Yellow Jacket record books and claimed the 2008 NCAA Singles title.
