For the second consecutive year, Georgia Tech sophomore Kendal Woodard has been given All-ACC honors, while teammate Megan Kurey has been named to the All-ACC team for the first time.

Woodard was named to first team while Kurey was given second team honors.

Per a release from the Georgia Tech athletic department, All-ACC teams were determined by a vote of the league’s 15 head coaches. Woodard and Kurey are the 19th and 20th Georgia Tech student-athletes selected to All-ACC women’s tennis teams.

As a doubles tandem, Woodard and Kurey are one of the most formidable duos in the nation, winning the 2013 USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships doubles title in November. In 2014, they have a record of 25-9 together, with a 9-8 mark against nationally ranked opponents. Kurey and Woodard also won the USTA/ITA Southeast Regional Doubles Title in the fall.
