ATLANTA–Georgia Tech all-America tennis star Kristi Miller, who led the Yellow Jackets to the NCAA team title this week, was named Thursday to the ESPN the Magazine Academic All-District III At-Large team, announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
In addition to being a five-time all-America on the tennis court, the junior from Marysville, Mich., is a 4.0 student in her major of History, Technology and Society. She is now eligible for the Academic All-America team after earning first-team Academic All-America accolades last year.
Miller is currently competing in the NCAA Singles and Doubles Championships as she seeks an NCAA individual title to go along with the team championship she helped Tech win with Tuesday’s 4-2 victory over UCLA. She is the No. 6 seed in singles and the No. 3 seed in doubles with partner Whitney McCray.
She has advanced to the Round of 16 in singles with today’s victory over Amanda Fish of Vanderbilt, and her first doubles match is later today.
Already Tech’s career leader in singles victories, Miller has a record of 116-28, along with an 83-39 mark in doubles. Winner of the 2006 Honda Award as national player of the year, she is a three-time all-America in singles, a two-time all-America in doubles, a three-time all-Atlantic Coast Conference honoree.
