ATLANTA – One day after the Georgia Tech women’s tennis team learned it received the No. 3 National Seed in the 2007 NCAA Women’s Tennis Team Championships, five members of the Yellow Jackets women’s tennis team learned they will compete in the NCAA Singles and/or Doubles Championships with another chance to earn a national title this May.
Kristi Miller and Whitney McCray headline the group of Yellow Jackets selected for the NCAA Individual Championships, as the two earned All-America honors as national seeds in the upcoming competition. Miller and McCray become just the second doubles team in the history of the program to earn All-America honors after receiving the No. 3 national seed in the upcoming NCAA Doubles Championships while Miller earned her fifth All-America honor after being named the No. 6 national seed in the 2007 NCAA Singles Championships.
Joining Miller in the NCAA Singles Championships is rookie Kirsten Flower, who has been ranked in the top-50 all spring, while Christy Striplin is listed as an alternate for the 64-person tournament. Amanda Craddock and Alison Silverio will join Miller and McCray in the 32-team NCAA Doubles Championships.
The NCAA Singles and Doubles Championships will follow the NCAA Team Championships, and are slated to run through May 28. All NCAA Women’s Tennis Championship matches will be played at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex on the campus of the University of Georgia in Athens.
Georgia Tech will begin its quest for a team title next weekend when it hosts Furman in the first round of the NCAA Team Championships Saturday at 12 noon. For more information on the NCAA Atlanta Regional, visit www.ramblinwreck.com.
