January 31, 2012JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Megan Kurey of Centennial High School has signed to play tennis with Georgia Tech.
According to the Georgia Tech women's tennis website, Kurey is the 22nd-ranked player in the class of 2012 and third-ranked player in the state of Georgia. She is not only a standout tennis player, but excelled in the classroom as well. A four-year letter winner, she earned the Coaches' Award in 2009 and was team MVP in 2011. Academically, Kurey was a scholar-athlete all three years of her varsity career, and was selected to the National Honor Society and Spanish National Honor Society as a junior and senior.
"Megan Kurey is one of the most skilled players in the nation," said Georgia Tech women's tennis head coach Bryan Shelton. "She will fit well into our program as she is an all-court player who likes to volley and finish points at the net. She is probably better known for her doubles accomplishments, but watch for her to be a real dual threat. She has a calm demeanor on the court, but is a fierce competitor."
