Bulldog Women's Swim Team Ties Georgia Record for Consecutive Home Wins

Dan Magill, a swimming letterman for the Georgia Bulldogs in the 1940s and the head coach of the men’s tennis team that set the school record with 76 consecutive home victories from 1968 to 1972, addressed the Red and Black women’s swimming and diving team before Wednesday’s meet. Whatever Coach Magill said worked, because the Georgia women tied the school mark with their 76th straight triumph at Gabrielsen Natatorium over Emory, defeating the visitors from Atlanta by a 141-96 margin.

The Bulldog men won, as well, besting Emory, 144-88, to run their record to 3-1-1, but their achievement paled in comparison to that of the Red and Black ladies, who justified their No. 1 national ranking by winning for the 51st time in the last 52 meets. The Georgia women’s swimming and diving team now stands at 5-0, having won 18 in a row overall.

The Athenians’ next home meet will be against the South Carolina Gamecocks on January 20, when the ladies will have the opportunity to win their 77th straight to set a new record all their own.
