Lamprecht, Lee Highlight Honorees at Yellow Jacket Celebration

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech athletics recognized the achievements of its student-athletes over the past year during its annual Yellow Jacket Celebration on Monday evening at the historic Fox Theatre in midtown Atlanta.

Christo Lamprecht and Carol Lee headlined the honorees, earning GTAA Athletes of the Year for their outstanding successes during the 2023-24 campaigns.

One of the top collegiate golfers in the nation the past two years, Lamprecht is a semifinalist for the Ben Hogan Award and a finalist for the Fred Haskins Award. The two-time GTAA Male Athlete of the Year honoree ranks among the top 10 golfers in the nation, is the No. 1-ranked amateur in the world and ranks No. 2 in the PGA Tour University. He won two tournaments in 2023-24, the Olympia Fields/Fighting Illini Invitational and the Ben Hogan Collegiate Invitational. He is challenging to break the Georgia Tech record for stroke average in a season and a career.

A two-time all-American, Lee has climbed as high as top 10 in the country in singles and No. 1 in doubles during the course of her athletic career. Last season, Lee made a run to the NCAA Tournament quarterfinals, was a regional doubles champion and regional singles finalist. She spent the entire season ranked in the top 16 nationally last year. Lee has earned all-ACC first team recognition two consecutive years after holding down the No. 1 singles and doubles spots for women’s tennis. She is currently ranked top 15 in doubles and top 50 in singles nationally.
