THE FLATS – Georgia Tech’s Carol Lee became a two-time All-American on Monday after the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) officially announced the 2023 All-American honorees. Lee was named to the ITA All-American list in singles.
“All of Carol’s hard work continues to pay off,” commented Byers women’s tennis head coach Rodney Harmon. “Carol has worked extremely hard every day since she came to Georgia Tech and has remained focused on becoming the best player she can be. This is her second All-American honor and we look forward to watching her reach new heights next season.”
The prestigious title is given to student-athletes that earn a top-16 seed in the NCAA Singles Championship, advance to the round of 16 in the NCAA Singles Championship or finish in the top 20 of the ITA Singles Rankings.
Lee led Georgia Tech from the No. 1 singles position all season, compiling a 29-12 overall singles record, and went 17-7 in dual singles matches from the top position. The Yellow Jacket earned an individual bid to the NCAA Singles Championship and earned a top-16 seeding, clinching All-America status.
Making her second appearance in the NCAA Singles Championships, Lee reached the quarterfinals, marking the deepest run of her career. A mainstay in the national singles rankings, Lee climbed as high as No. 7 nationally on March 21 and finished the season ranked No. 14.
This marks her first All-America status in singles after earning All-America recognition last season in doubles. Lee becomes the first Yellow Jacket to earn singles All-America honors since Victoria Flores and Kenya Jones earned the distinction in 2021.
Lee is one of eight representatives of the Atlantic Coast Conference on the ITA All-American singles list. To view the complete list of ITA All-Americans, please click here.
