10th-Ranked Jackets Open ACC Tournament Play Friday

April 20, 2006

CARY, NC – The 10th-ranked Georgia Tech women’s tennis team, 18-5 overall with a 9-2 mark in Atlantic Coast Conference matches, begins play in the 2006 ACC Tournament Friday at 9 a.m. at the Cary Tennis Center. The Jackets will face the NC State Wolfpack, who defeated Maryland, 4-0, in opening round action. Livestats for the match will be available at www.ramblinwreck.com.

The Jackets are entering the tournament as the No. 1 seed for the second-straight season. Tech captured the ACC Championship–the first in school history–in 2005 and begins to defend its title against the Wolfpack, who the Jackets defeated in the regular-season finale, 7-0.

Leading the way for the Jackets is sophomore Kristi Miller, who is currently the No. 1-ranked singles player in the nation. The Marysville, Michigan native also teams with senior Lyndsay Shosho to form the country’s ninth-ranked doubles team. Shosho, senior Kelly Anderson and juniors Alison Silverio and Tarryn Rudman all appear in the singles rankings with Miller.

Tech earned the No. 1 seed via blind draw, which occurred at the Atlantic Coast Conference offices Monday morning, after finishing the regular season in a three-way tie with Duke and Miami. Duke earned the No. 2 seed in the tournament while Miami received the third seed.
