ATLANTA – Georgia Tech’s fourth-ranked women’s tennis team will play its last home match of the 2007 season this Wednesday when it hosts the Furman Paladins at 2 p.m. Prior to the match, the Yellow Jackets will honor its two seniors, Alison Silverio and Tarryn Rudman, who will be playing in their final home regular season match at the Bill Moore Tennis Center.
“It would be great to have a crowd come out and support Ali and Tarryn in their final regular season home match,” said Georgia Tech head coach Bryan Shelton. “These two have been everything a coach hopes for in a student athlete, and it would be great to show our appreciation by getting there early tomorrow.”
The Yellow Jackets (17-4) stand tied for first with Clemson in the 2007 Atlantic Coast Conference standings and will be playing their final regular-season matches of the season this weekend at Virginia Tech and Virginia.
“Our team is peaking at the right time again as we near tournament time,” added Shelton. “This has truly been a special season, defeating more than 10 top-20 teams along the way, including the top two teams in the nation, and we’re looking to end the regular season on a strong note.”
Georgia Tech leads the series with the Paladins, 16-5, including winning 11-consecutive matches in the series. Last season, the Jackets recorded a 7-0 win at Furman.
