March 13, 2006

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Georgia Tech’s Lyndsay Shosho helped the Yellow Jackets to three wins over ranked opponents last week, earning Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Tennis Performer of the Week honors.

Shosho played an integral role in Georgia Tech’s three-win week, as she went 3-0 in singles and 2-1 in doubles to help the No. 15 Jackets knock off No. 12 Vanderbilt, No. 71 Virginia Tech and No. 64 Virginia.

Against the Commodores on Tuesday, the 74th-ranked Shosho topped No. 19 Taka Bertrand at No. 2 singles, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (4). Shosho also teamed with Kristi Miller at No. 1 singles to take down Vanderbilt’s Amanda Taylor and Maggie Yahner, 8-4. The Yellow Jackets cruised past Vanderbilt, 7-0.

Shosho jumped up to No. 57 in singles when the latest rankings were released later in the week, and didn’t disappoint, earning a 6-0, 6-2 win over Anat Elazari in Georgia Tech’s 7-0 win over Virginia Tech. Shosho, a senior from East Amherst, N.Y., again teamed with Miller to form the No. 12 doubles combination in the country, and the two defeated Virginia Tech’s Elazari and J.J. Larson at No. 1, 8-1.

Shosho capped her week by clinching Georgia Tech’s 4-3 win over Virginia with a 3-6, 6-3, 6-1 victory over Kristen James at No. 2. Shosho and Miller dropped their doubles contest to Virginia’s James and Lori Stern, who are ranked 33rd in the nation.

Georgia Tech (10-2, 3-0 ACC) return to action on Wednesday, March 15, at Furman.
