ATLANTA – Jared Hyatt, Sarah Wood and Luke Rassow-Kantor were named Georgia Tech Student-Athletes of the Week for Monday, April 16, 2007.
Hyatt, a redshirt senior from Marietta, Ga., entered the game against the fifth-ranked Virginia Cavaliers with the Yellow Jackets trailing 1-0 in the seventh inning on Friday, and tossed four innings of shotout baseball, holding the Cavaliers hitless through the 11th inning, while allowing just two Virginia hitters to reach base (HBP, BB) during that span. He improved to 6-0 on the season after the Jackets executed a suicide squeeze bunt in the top of the 11th. He has now made 11 scoreless appearances in 2007, and is 2-0 with a 0.96 ERA in his last five appearances.
Wood, a senior from Marietta, Ga., led the Yellow Jackets to a 3-0 record last week, including a 2-0 sweep of Maryland over the weekend to give No. 24 Georgia Tech its second consecutive Atlantic Coast Conference series win. Against the Terps, Wood tossed her third complete game of the season, giving up two runs, seven hits and fanned five. She ended the week 2-0, with a time-low 1.75 earned run average and struck out 10.
Rassow-Kantor, a freshman from Westport, Conn., led the men’s tennis team in back-to-back, 4-3, conference wins over No. 57 Maryland and Boston College over the weekend. He had the match clinching victories against both opponents including a straight-set defeat of Maryland’s Nickolai Nielsen, 6-1, 6-4. He then beat Alex Rastorgouev of Boston College, 7-6, 3-6, 6-3, to give the Jackets the win on Sunday.
