It's a sport we rarely talk about, but an achievement rarely paralleled in our athletics' department.

Today, Georgia Tech won a national championship, and that's all that should matter to any of us.

Megan Kurey and Kendal Woodward, 26th-ranked doubles team in the country, played against Louisville's #56 duo of Julia Fellerhoff and Rebecca Shine in Flushing, NY, for an accolade few ever achieve. They won the match 4-6, 6-3, 7-5, and were named national champs!

Kurey and Woodward fought a hard match, coming back from being a set down and winning the final set after being knotted up at 5-5. Assistant Coach Alison Silverio said, "Kendal and Megan made program history and displayed championship character today. 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."

This fall, Megan and Kendal went 14-4, with a 7-3 record against nationally ranked opponents.

What an incredible achievement this is for them, and what incredible pride they've brought to our athletics' department and the Georgia Tech community. Congratulations to Megan and Kendal, and Go Jackets!
