HTS Graduate to Go Pro
Sasha Goodlett, a recent graduate from the IAC School of History, Technology, and Society who played senior center for Georgia Tech women’s basketball, was selected 11th overall by the Indiana Fever in the first round of the 2012 WNBA Draft held April 16th.
"I am just really excited," said Goodlett. "I am really looking forward to going in there and learning from veteran players like Tamika Catchings and actually coming into the system and learning and being part of the culture."
Goodlett finished her career at Georgia Tech ranked in the top in points scored (10th, 1,364), rebounds (9th, 760) and blocked shots (5th, 127). This year, Goodlett earned All-ACC Second Team and ACC All-Tournament First Team accolades as she helped the Jackets to 12 ACC wins and 26 overall wins, both program bests. The Yellow Jackets played in the ACC Championship Game for only the second time in school history and advanced to Tech's first Sweet 16.
Congratulations, Sasha. You’re creating your own great sports history!
