ATLANTA–Freshman point guard Jill Ingram and swimming standouts Sam Morgan and Vesna Stojanovska named the Wendy’s Georgia Tech Student-Athletes of the Week for Monday, November 22, 2004.
Ingram, a freshman from Charlotte N.C., helped Georgia Tech to a 42-point win over cross-town rival Georgia State, holding the Panthers, the top preseason team in the CAA, to 30 points in the contest, which ties the Georgia Tech record for fewest points allowed in a game. She paced the team with 13 points, shooting 40-percent from the floor including 50-percent from behind the arc. The freshman point guard led the team with six steals while committing no turnovers. She pulled down five rebounds and dished out two assists starting in her first collegiate game.
Morgan, a junior from Gainesville, Ga., led the Yellow Jackets to a third-place finish at the Georgia Tech Invitational this past weekend. Morgan posted a NCAA ‘B’ cut time of 4:27.32 in the 500 freestyle to finish first. The Gainesville, Ga., native then set a new Georgia Tech Aquatic Center pool record in the 1650 freestyle with a mark of 15:36.80 to capture his second event of the fall invitational. Morgan posted a season-best time of 4:01.05 in the prelims of the 400 IM, finishing third in the finals and tallied an eighth-place finish in the 200 freestyle (1:44.55). The All-American also swam a leg of the 800 freestyle relay team that finished second with a time of 6:47.66.
Stojanovska, a sophomore from Skopie, Macedonia, broke three school records and posted a pair of NCAA ‘B’ qualifying standards in the 200 and 500 freestyle events to lead the Yellow Jackets to a second-place finish at the Georgia Tech Invitational, beating No. 23 Tennessee by 33 points, 783-750. Stojanovska swam NCAA times of 1:49.37 and 4:51.20 in the 200 and 500 freestyle events to tally her first NCAA ‘B’ cuts of the season en route to breaking her own school records in both those events. The Skopie, Macedonia, native then finished first in the 200 butterfly with a Tech record time of 2:01.89.
