ATLANTA (Sept. 6) — Megan McCarney, a four-year women’s tennis letterwinner and all-Big Ten performer at Indiana, has been named an assistant coach at Georgia Tech, women’s tennis coach Bryan Shelton has announced.
“Megan has been in the game a long time and to make it as far as she has, you have to learn a lot along the way,” Shelton says. “She was a good player and will also be able to get on the court with our girls and push them. Based on her accomplishments, our team will have a tremendous amount of respect for her.”
McCarney enjoyed a successful collegiate career at Indiana, helping the Hoosiers to a pair of conference team championships in 1995 and 1998. In her four seasons at IU, the Hoosiers posted an overall dual-match record of 73-40 and qualified for the NCAA Team Championships all four years. She earned all-Big Ten honors as a junior in 1997 and captained the squad as a senior in 1998. McCarney was equally successful in the classroom, earning Academic all-Big Ten honors and being named an all-America Scholar Athlete by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA).
McCarney’s primary focus at Tech will be on-the-court coaching and individual workouts while assisting Shelton in all other aspects of the Yellow Jackets’ program.
