Georgia Bulldogs Beat Auburn Tigers in Equestrian, Swimming on Veterans Day

Veterans Day was a busy one in Bulldog Nation, so a quick rundown is in order to get you up to speed heading into tomorrow’s renewal of the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry. Here is what you need to know:

Women’s Basketball

Though Andy Landers’s Lady Bulldogs allowed the Horned Frogs to hang around for a while, the Georgia women’s basketball team dismissed TCU, 83-60, in their season-opener in Stegeman Coliseum. The rebounding was fairly even (Georgia led, 43-40), and Texas Christian carded seven blocks to the Bulldogs’ two, but the visitors turned the ball over nearly twice as often as their hosts (29-15). The Red and Black had thrice as many steals (21-7), and they shot almost five per cent better from the field while making 13 of 30 baskets from three-point range.

Women’s Equestrian

The third-ranked Georgia riders took care of the No. 1 Auburn Tigers and the horses in on which they rode, claiming a 10-8 triumph in Bishop, Ga. The Orange and Blue edged the home team, 3-2, in equitation on the flat, but the Red and Black tied their guests in the hunter seat events with a 3-2 win in equitation over fences. On the Western side, the Tigers took top honors in horsemanship, 2-1, but the Bulldogs were dominant in reining, carding a 4-1 victory. Georgia captured all four MVP awards, with Carly Anthony being decorated in both hunter seat competitions. The Athenians now boast a 47-1 home record.

Swimming and Diving

A split decision resulted from Friday’s swimming and diving meet in the so-called Loveliest Village, as the top-ranked Georgia women’s team took care of sixth-ranked Auburn, while the fifth-ranked Tiger men took down the ninth-ranked Bulldogs. The ladies’ 133-110 triumph marked their 17th straight dual meet win and upped their record to 50-1 in their last 51 contests.

Women’s Volleyball

The Georgia women’s volleyball team notched a much-needed win over Mississippi State. The Red and Black cruised to a 2-0 lead, claiming the first two sets, 25-14 and 25-18, before being edged by the Western Division Bulldogs, 25-23, in the third set. The Red and Black came back to defeat the Mississippians, 25-22, in the fourth frame. Georgia registered 59 kills to the opponent’s 50.
