The Atlanta-area trio has 175 games of combined experience, including 79 starts in their three years as members of the Yellow Jacket team.
Harpring, a junior from Dunwoody, Ga., has played in every game in her two years as a Yellow Jacket, making 21 starts. The Marist High School graduate is one of Georgia Tech’s top three-point threats, connecting on 33 percent in her first two seasons. She averages 4.5 points and 2.0 rebounds per game and is one of the top free-throw shooters in Yellow Jacket history, connecting on 82.9 percent (58-of-70), including a 34-for-38 mark a year ago.
A junior from Douglasville, Ga., Terry is one of the nation’s top returning shot-blocking threats after recording 70 blocks during her sophomore season. She already stands fourth in the Tech career annals with 110 blocks in her 58 contests. The Douglas County High School graduate has started a team-high 34 games in her career, averaging 5.3 points and 4.7 rebounds per contest.
The top returning offensive rebounder in the Atlantic Coast Conference, Williams begins her junior season with 57 games under her belt, including 24 of those in the starting lineup. She was one of the most accurate shooters on the Yellow Jacket team a season ago with a .472 field goal percentage. A Riverdale, Ga., native, Williams averaged just 2.6 points per game her freshman year, and more than doubled that output a season ago. The Riverdale High School graduate has averaged 4.1 points and 3.8 rebounds in her career.
These three juniors, along with the rest of the 2004-05 Yellow Jackets, will travel to San Jose, Costa Rica during the upcoming fall break to play four games against the Costa Rican National Team, the University of Costa Rica, and Cartago before returning to Atlanta to focus on the upcoming season, which begins Nov. 2 with an exhibition game against the Premier Players at 7 p.m. The Yellow Jackets’ first regular-season game is part of a doubleheader with the men’s team on Nov. 19. The women will play at approximately 8 p.m., an hour after the conclusion of the men’s contest against Alabama State, which begins at 5:30 p.m.
