THE FLATS – After completing successful seasons on the courts, Georgia Tech’s Carol Lee and Kate Sharabura were awarded All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors on Friday, as the conference office announced the yearly award winners. Lee earned all-ACC second team recognition in singles, while Lee and Sharabura were named all-ACC second team in doubles.

Lee led Georgia Tech from the No. 1 singles position all season, compiling a 20-15 overall record, including a 14-7 mark in dual singles matches. Ranked nationally all season in singles, Lee finished the season ranked No. 37. The Yellow Jacket ended the season earning her third-straight bid to the NCAA Singles Championship. The three-time all-ACC selection concluded her collegiate career with 88 singles wins to rank 13th all-time in the Georgia Tech women’s tennis record book.

In doubles action, Lee and Sharabura combined to post an 18-9 overall record. The doubles pair maintained the No. 1 position with a 16-5 record in dual matches and went 8-3 against ACC opponents.

After earning their second career bid to the NCAA Doubles Championship, the pair finished the season ranked No. 22 nationally. This is the pair’s first all-ACC recognition since the conference began awarding doubles accolades in 2023.
