ATLANTA – Georgia Tech senior Roger Anderson has been selected to compete in the NCAA Singles Championship, while he and junior Scott Schnugg will team up for the Doubles Championships, May 15-24 at the Dan Magill Tennis in Athens, Ga.
“I’m obviously excited for Roger and Scott to be a part of the NCAA Championships on an individual level,” said Tech head coach Kenny Thorne. “This will be the second trip for Roger and hopefully he will be able to draw upon the experience of a year ago to help him this time. He has had an outstanding year and is certainly a player to that win on the highest level in the NCAAs. As a team, he and Scott have certainly been our top doubles tandem this year. With them being ranked in the top 10 in the latest poll would have to put them among the top teams in the field so I think it will be fun to see what they can do when they get to Athens.”
Anderson, a senior from Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, earned All-ACC honors for the third-straight year in 2003, ranking second on the team with a 23-9 singles record on the year, playing solely in the No. 1 position in the singles lineup. He is currently the nation’s 26th-ranked singles player and this will mark his second-straight NCAA singles appearance and his first as a doubles competitor.
Schnugg, a junior from Medford, Ore., leads the team in overall singles wins with a 26-13 record. He and Anderson form the Yellow Jackets’ top doubles team, as the duo holds a 12-2 dual-match record and a 13-3 overall mark. They are currently ranked 10th in the nation in the latest ITA rankings.
