THE FLATS – This fall, the Georgia Tech women’s tennis team will feature a student-athlete every week in attempt to “Meet the Yellow Jackets”. This week, Rasheeda McAdoo (Boca Raton, Fla.) sat down with RamblinWreck.com to answer some questions on her favorite tennis memory and what she likes to do in her free time. During her first fall tournament as a Yellow Jacket, McAdoo went a perfect 3-0 in singles play and paired up with senior Muriel Wacker to tally a 2-1 record in doubles competition.
The women’s tennis team is back in action this upcoming weekend when it travels to the Vanderbilt Invitational on Friday, Oct. 11.
