May 25, 2006

ATLANTA–Top-ranked tennis player Kristi Miller and all-America golfer Roberto Castro have been named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District III At-Large first team, while tennis standout Kelly Anderson and swimmer Jason Howard made the second team.

Miller, a sophomore from Marysville, Mich., and Castro, a junior from Alpharetta, Ga., are now eligible for the CoSIDA Academic All-America team, which will be announced in mid-June by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

Castro made the Academic All-District team for the second straight year after earning third-team Academic All-America honors in 2005. He maintains a 3.82 grade point average in Industrial Engineering.

Also an all-America on the golf course, Castro is one of 10 semifinalists for 2006 Ben Hogan Award as the nation’s top collegiate golfer. He was a first-team all-America in 2005 by the Golf Coaches Association of America and an honorable mention selection in 2004. The three-time all-Atlantic Coast Conference honoree was the ACC Rookie of the Year in 2004 and is a two-time member of the U.S. Palmer Cup team. He will lead the Yellow Jackets in next week’s NCAA Championships.

Miller, ranked No. 1 in the nation in singles and No. 10 in doubles, is currently competing in the NCAA Singles and Doubles Championships. She is a two-time all-America, the first women’s tennis all-America in Georgia Tech history, with career records of 81-17 in singles and 54-22 in doubles. She was recently named the National Player to Watch by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association. Miller sports a perfect 4.0 GPA in History, Technology and Society.

Miller’s teammate, Kelly Anderson, was named to the Academic All-District second team for the third straight year. The all-ACC selection and 2003 ACC Rookie of the Year led Tech to back-to-back conference titles and four straight NCAA berths, including Sweet 16 appearances the last two years. The senior Management major from Pietermartizburg, South Africa, maintains a 3.65 GPA.

Howard, a senior from Snellville, Ga., graduated this spring with a 3.65 grade point average in International Affairs. He was a four-time ACC finalist in the freestyle sprint events and set a school record in the 50 freestyle while swimming on three relay teams that hold Tech records.

To be eligible for the Academic All-District team, a student-athlete must be a sophomore or higher with a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.20. The At-Large teams consist of student-athletes in all sports except football, basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball, track and soccer.
