Guillermo Gomez: Hall of Fame Class of 2022

GUILLERMO GOMEZ, MEN’S TENNIS (2008-11)

One of the all-time great performers in the history of the men’s tennis program at Georgia Tech, Guillermo Gomez was named an ITA All-American each of his last three years (2009, 2010 and 2011) and rose as high as No. 3 in the ITA national singles rankings during his career. The native of Spain also made the All-Atlantic Coast Conference team all four years, was named the ACC Rookie of the Year as a freshman in 2008 and the ACC Player of the Year as a senior in 2011. Gomez earned invitations to the NCAA men’s singles championship all four years, reaching the round of 16 as a junior and senior, and led Tech twice to the NCAA Championship as a team, reaching the round of 16 his senior year. A major contributor from his first season at Tech, Gomez played No. 1 for the Yellow Jackets almost exclusively and finished his career with a 119-38 record, surpassing Tech’s head coach Kenny Thorne for the Yellow Jackets’ career mark for singles victories. His won-loss record included 32-11 mark in ACC matches for his career. Also a top-level student, Gomez was the first ACC men’s tennis student-athlete player ever to be named ACC Player of the Year and ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year in the same season. He made the All-ACC Academic Team all four years.
