ATLANTA (March 22) – With a No. 23 national ranking in the latest WingspanBank.com Collegiate Tennis Rankings, the Georgia Tech men’s tennis team claimed its highest national ranking since 1993.
The Yellow Jackets (12-3, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) have won seven-straight matches, starting with a 4-3 victory over then-No. 20 Miami in Coral Gables, Fla., on March 7.
“I feel like the whole season, every guy on the team has competed really well,” head coach Kenny Thorne said. “They are excited about being the last one on the court when the match is on the line. I’m very pleased with the way everyone is competing and with everyone’s attitude, and those are the two things we can control.”
Georgia Tech moved up in this week’s poll, released by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association, from No. 38 to No. 23. It has been a steady climb through the ranks for the Yellow Jackets, who started this season ranked 73rd.
Georgia Tech hosts No. 3 Duke on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. at Bill Moore Tennis Center.
