Georgia Tech Women's Tennis Ranked Sixth in the Nation

March 22, 2005

ATLANTA – Georgia Tech’s women’s tennis team climbed to No. 6 in the polls released Tuesday, March 22nd by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA), marking the highest ranking ever for any Georgia Tech tennis team in history.

The sixth-ranked Yellow Jackets also become just the second women’s team in Georgia Tech history to ever crack the top-10, as the Georgia Tech volleyball team climbed as high as No. 4 in the rankings a season ago.

The Yellow Jackets have recorded victories over one top-10 team (Georgia) and three more top-25 teams (Clemson, Baylor, Alabama) this season, and still have matches to play against No. 7 Duke, No. 10 UNC, No. 11 Miami, No. 29 Florida State, No. 59 Maryland and No. 68 Virginia.

Leading the Yellow Jackets this season is rookie Kristi Miller, who attained her highest ranking to date Tuesday when she moved to No. 15 in the singles polls while appearing at No. 16 in doubles with sophomore partner Alison Silverio.

Tech is 11-2 on the season, including a 4-0 mark in ACC play. Under current head coach Bryan Shelton, the Yellow Jackets are 77-50 and own a 22-20 record in conference matches.

Georgia Tech will return to action the first weekend of April when it travels to Virginia and Maryland. The Jackets and Cavaliers will face off Saturday at 10 a.m. before traveling to College Park to meet the Terrapins at 11 a.m. Sunday. Tech will then conclude its season with a four-match homestand against Florida State, Miami, Duke and North Carolina.
