History of the Women's Tennis Program at Tech

Georgia Tech first formed a women's tennis team in 1977. For the first two seasons, Hoylene Noble coached the team to an overall 8-6 record. Julie Wrege took over in 1979 and remained until 1985, when family concerns forced her to resign. Rick Davison served the team as coach after Wrege, finishing in 1991 with a 79-88 record. Wrege came back as interim head coach in 1992 for one season. Overall, her record was 86-75. Wrege was inducted into the Georgia Tech Hall of Fame in 1997 for her service to the team.

Two coaches led the team during the rest of the 1990s: Janey Strause (1993 and 1994) and Sue Hutchinson (1995-1999). In the 1999-2000 season, Bryan Shelton, who had starred for the men's tennis team during the late 1980s and gone on to a distinguished career as a professional tennis player, returned to Tech as the women's tennis coach. Under Shelton's leadership, women's tennis has enjoyed considerable success: As of the 2011 season, the team has appeared in the NCAA Tournament 11 times, won the ACC Tournament four times, and become national champions in 2007.
