ATLANTA – Georgia Tech senior women’s tennis standout Jaime Wong was one of 64 singles players selected to compete in the 2003 NCAA Women’s Tennis Singles Championship, which will be held May 15-24 at the Ring Tennis Complex in Gainesville, Fla.
“I’m very happy for Jaime to be selected to be a part of the NCAA singles tournament for the second-straight year,” said Tech head coach Bryan Shelton. “She has certainly been the leader of her team throughout the year and in her career over the past four years. I’m proud of what she has done and hopefully having been to the tournament a year ago she will be able to use that experience to have a successful trip this year.”
Wong earned a berth in the event for the second-straight year and became the first Yellow Jacket to be selected in the history of the program in 2002. Wong has been the top performer for Tech during the past season, as she is currently ranked 43rd in both singles and doubles after posting a team-best 25-8 overall singles record thus far in 2003, along with a 13-5 dual-match mark.
She is currently the school’s career leader in both singles (101) and doubles (82) victories, along with topping the list in career singles winning percentage (.697).
Pairings for the tournament will be announced at the later date, while live scoring of the tournament will be available at www.gatorzone.com.
