Krupina gets conference honor
Senior women’s tennis player Sasha Krupina was named the ACC Women’s Tennis Player of the Week by the conference.
Krupina earned the honor thanks to her stellar play against Northwestern on Jan. 23. Krupina helped win two points for the Jackets in their 5-2 victory.
The senior was paired with junior Caroline Lilley in the doubles portion of the meet and the team defeated their Northwestern foes 8-4. Krupina helped the Jackets win the pivotal doubles point to start off the meet.
Krupina, playing from the fifth spot, won another point for the Jackets when she defeated her foe 6-2, 6-1.
Softball unanimous No. 1
On Jan. 26, the ACC’s head softball coaches voted Tech as the favorite to win their third consecutive league title. Tech received seven out of eight first place votes, with the other going to North Carolina. However, Tech was the unanimous choice because a coach could not vote for her own team.
The Jackets will have to find a way to replace All-American Jen Yee, but they do return every other returning starter from last year’s team that went 52-11.
Tech starts the season ranked No. 17 by ESPN for their 22nd consecutive top-25 preseason ranking.
