Carol named to all-ACC Team



Carol Lee is not only making her home islands proud in academics, but also in tennis after the incoming junior at Georgia Tech earned first-team all-Atlantic Coast Conference last month.

“I would like to thank my family, my coaches, my friends, and people who have been supporting me,” she told Saipan Tribune immediately after receiving the news that she made the elite list.

According to the technology-focused college in Atlanta’s sports website,, Lee was named first-team all-ACC after compiling a 25-8 overall singles record and 22-6 overall doubles mark.

Lee led the Yellow Jackets from the No. 1 positions in both singles and doubles. In singles, Lee went 16-5 from the No. 1 spot and compiled an 8-5 record against league opponents. 

She climbed as high as No. 22 in the  Intercollegiate Tennis Association national singles rankings and earned an at-large bid to the NCAA Championships. She finished the season with an 11-8 record against ranked opponents.

Lee also teamed up with Kate Sharabura, who earned  all-ACC third team honors, in doubles action to make up the No. 5-ranked doubles team in the country. 

The two went 22-6 overall and 17-3 in dual action this season, mainly from the No. 1 position. Lee and Sharabura earned the No. 4 seed in the NCAA Championship, solidifying ITA All-American honors for the duo.

Aside from Lee and Sharabura, teammates Kylie Bilchev and Ava Hrastar were also named to the all-ACC third team.

Last week, Lee made the dean’s list for the spring 2022 semester at Georgia Tech. This designation is awarded to undergraduate students who have earned a 3.0 or higher academic average for the semester.

Georgia Tech, whose full name is Georgia Institute of Technology, is a Top 10 public research university developing leaders who advance technology and improve the human condition.

It offers business, computing, design, engineering, liberal arts, and sciences degrees. Its nearly 44,000 students, representing 50 states and 149 countries, study at the main campus in Atlanta, at campuses in France and China, and through distance and online learning.
