ATLANTA – Thaddeus Young, Alison Silverio and Shantia Moss were named Georgia Tech Student-Athletes of the Week for Monday, March 12, 2007.

She dropped just three games in two doubles matches, teaming with freshman Amanda Craddock atop the Yellow Jackets doubles lineup, winning 8-1 against Michal Amir and Maggie MacKeever at Maryland and an 8-2 match vs. Dasha Cherkasov and Alina Sullivan at Boston College. Silverio also won a pair of singles matches in straight sets, defeating Amir, 6-4, 6-2, and breezing by Cherkasov, 6-1, 6-2.
