We have received tremendous support from our Georgia Tech Family and appreciate everyone that has been behind us, it makes a huge difference.”
It took three sets to put the Louisville team away, but Woodard and Kurey recorded a 4-6, 6-3, 7-5 victory against Fellerhoff and Shine.
“Kendal and Megan made program history and displayed championship character today,” Silverio said. “Coach Harmon and I are very proud of their accomplishment. They are the 2013 Indoor National Doubles Champions, and that title will stay with them for a lifetime. It is well deserved for these two student-athletes.”
