Lyndsay Shosho will be entering her second year with the University of Kentucky women's tennis team. In the 2007-08 season, Shosho helped lead the Wildcats to a top-25 finish, upset three top-25 teams and guide the program to its 12th consecutive NCAA tournament berth.
The Georgia Tech alum came to UK after spending time as an assistant coach for the University of Hawaii and helping lead her alma mater to three consecutive Atlantic Coast Conference championships during her playing career.
"Lyndsay's positive outlook towards life is refreshing to our team and something that everyone can draw from," said head coach Carlos Drada. "She is fully devoted to making the team better and is a true role-model for our young athletes. Lyndsay's understanding of the game and her ability to communicate with our players make her a vital force in the success of our team."
A four-year letter winner for the nationally-ranked Yellow Jackets, Shosho helped Georgia Tech to top-10 finishes and NCAA Sweet-16 appearances in each of her last two seasons in Atlanta and concluded her career as the Yellow Jackets' all-time leader in doubles wins, with 83 in her four-year career.
Shosho earned All-America honors in 2006, becoming just the second player in school history to do so, and was a two-time All-Atlantic Coast Conference honoree and four-time ACC Honor Roll selection at Georgia Tech.
A native of East Amherst, N.Y., Shosho finished her career at Georgia Tech ranked fifth in the school's record books with 84 career singles victories. She earned her bachelor's degree in management in 2006 and was a four-year member of the dean's list.
