ATLANTA – Sophomore All-American Kristi Miller has earned the No. 1 singles ranking in the latest Fila Collegiate Tennis Rankings, becoming the first Georgia Tech player – men’s or women’s – to be named the top singles player in the nation.
Miller leads the squad with 25 singles wins this season, bringing her two-year career total to 67, which already stands seventh in the Tech annals for most singles wins in a career. The Marysville, Michigan native recorded 42 singles victories in her rookie campaign, which shattered the previous season mark of 30, which was set in 1998 and 2001.
This spring, the 2005 ACC Rookie of the Year has posted six victories against ranked singles opponents and is currently riding a nine-match winning streak, which includes wins against then-10th-ranked Cristelle Grier of Northwestern and No. 30 Natalie Frazier from Georgia.
Miller will lead her 13th-ranked team against the No. 57 Aggies of Texas A&M tonight at 7 p.m. in College Station, Tex. Livestats for the match are available by visiting www.aggieathletics.com.
