May 23, 2005

ATLANTA – Georgia Tech standouts Kelly Anderson, Roberto Castro, Kirin Kumar and Ryan Turner were named the Wendy’s Georgia Tech Student-Athletes of the Week for Monday, May 23, 2005.

Anderson, a junior from Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, helped Tech to two of the Yellow Jackets’ three points against Texas by first teaming with Whitney McCray to capture the doubles point with a 9-7 win over Kelly Baritot and Courtney Zauft before easily defeating the longhorns’ Kendra Strohm by a 6-0, 6-3 score in singles. She finished the season with 23 singles and 26 doubles victories, and is the only current Tech player to appear in the top 10 for career singles and doubles victories, with 60 and 53, respectively.

Castro, a sophomore from Alpharetta, Ga., shot a 6-under-par 65 Saturday to lead Georgia Tech’s final round rally at the NCAA East Regional golf tournament and assure the third-ranked Yellow Jackets a spot in next week’s NCAA division I Championship. Castro birdied seven holes in his round, coming within one stroke of a career low, and helped Tech shoot a final-round score of 279 (5-under-par) and tie for sixth place in the event. Castro, one of four Tech golfers to earn All-ACC honors this year, tied for 10th place individually at 6-under-par 207, posting scores of 73 and 69 in his first two rounds.

Kumar, a senior from Santa Ana, Calif., helped the softball team to an appearance in the NCAA Athens Regional Final. In the Jackets’ first game against Kansas, she recorded two hits in a 3-1 win over the Jayhawks. Later in the tournament, she drove in two runs in a 5-2 win over Kansas, sending Tech into the Region final against Georgia. For the season, Kumar hit .322 in helping the Yellow Jackets to 51 wins on the season, the second most in school history.

Turner, a sophomore from Dahlonega, Ga., pitched seven shutout innings to lead Georgia Tech to an 8-1 win at North Carolina in the season finale on Saturday. Turner allowed four hits — three singles — and five walks while striking out five batters. The left-hander held the Tar Heels to a .167 batting average. He allowed just four runners to advance past first base. For the season, Turner is 7-2 with a 2.92 ERA in 61.2 innings. He finished the regular season by allowing just two runs in his last 19 innings (0.94 ERA).
