Kevin King: Hall of Fame Class of 2023
KEVIN KING, TENNIS (2009-12)
King earned All-America honors from the Intercollegiate Tennis Association in 2011 and 2012 and made the All-Atlantic Coast Conference team three times – in 2010, 2011 and 2012 – during a stellar four-year career on The Flats. The Peachtree City, Ga., native is one of the Yellow Jackets’ all-time best as a singles and doubles player, still ranking No. 7 in career singles victories with 84 and No. 2 in doubles victories with 90. He helped lead Georgia Tech to the NCAA Championship twice, in 2010 and 2011, helping the Yellow Jackets advance past the first round each year while compiling a 3-2 record in singles and a 3-2 mark in doubles. King made the 64-player field for the NCAA singles championship in 2012, and teamed with Juan Spir to compete in the NCAA doubles championship in 2011 and 2012, reaching the fourth round in 2011. He won the 2011 Southeast Regional singles championship in 2011. King was just as strong academically, being named an ITA Scholar-Athlete all four of his years at Georgia Tech. As a professional, King played in all four grand slam events and was ranked as high at No. 162 in the world in singles and No. 114 in doubles before retiring.
Kevin will be officially inducted along with other members of the Classes of 2022 and 2023 on October 20 at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center
