July 3, 2007

ATLANTA – Scott Blackmon and Zach Rath were named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic men’s tennis team announced Tuesday by the conference office and commissioner John D. Swofford.

“I am very proud of Scott and Zachary for this academic honor,” said men’s head coach Kenny Thorne. “To excel on and off the court is something that comes only by rolling up your sleeves and getting to work. These guys did this all year and it is a very nice honor for them to be members of the All-ACC Academic Team, well deserved!”

Blackmon, a junior management major, finished the 2007 dual season with a 10-9 singles record predominantly from the No. 6 position for Georgia Tech. The Pensacola, Fla. native enjoyed victories in the teams last two matches of the season, defeating J.C. Whitner of Miami, 3-6, 7-5, 6-0, at the ACC Championships and beating Billy Mulligan of Florida, 6-1, 6-1, in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Blackmon teamed with various partners during the dual season to finish with a 7-11 doubles record. He closed out his spring semester with a 3.5 GPA and has an overall 3.0 GPA at Tech to earn his first All-ACC Academic nod.

Rath, a recent Tech graduate in management, finished his senior season with a 7-9 singles record from the No. 3 through No. 6 positions. The Montreal, Quebec native also closed out his season on a winning streak, claiming his final five finished matches including a victory over Hector Nieto of Miami, 6-4, 6-4, at the ACC Championships. Rath also completed the dual season with a 3-5 doubles record. He had a 3.5 GPA in his final semester at Tech and graduated with a 3.11 overall GPA to garner his first All-ACC Academic honor.
