Georgia Bulldogs Sunday Sports Summary: Lady Bulldogs Take Down Trojans

While Bulldog Nation’s focus this weekend understandably has been on the fact that the Georgia football team won the Eastern Division championship on Saturday, there have been games played on the distaff side, as well, so I now provide you with this Sunday summary of Red and Black women’s sports in commemoration of podunkdawg’s birthday, which is today. Here is the news that is worthy of note:

Basketball

Meredith Mitchell contributed 21 points, five rebounds, and three steals in 38 minutes to lead Andy Landers’s Lady Bulldogs to a women’s basketball victory over visiting Southern California, 67-60, in Stegeman Coliseum on Sunday. The Red and Black moved to 4-0 by turning 14 Trojan turnovers into 22 Bulldog points in a contest in which the hometown Athenians shot just 60.9 per cent from the free throw line (14 of 23). Georgia led in rebounds (36-34) and in points in the paint (36-26) while shooting 39.3 per cent from the field (24 of 61) and 27.8 per cent from beyond the arc (5 of 18).

Equestrian

The third-ranked Red and Black lady riders closed out their fall schedule with a win on Saturday, as the Georgia women’s equestrian team improved to 6-1 with a 12-6 road win over UT-Martin. 3-2 wins in both hunt seat events gave the Bulldogs the lead, and a 2-2 tie in reining was overcome by a 4-0 Athenian triumph in horsemanship. Georgia’s next competition is against South Carolina on February 4.

Volleyball

The slumping Georgia women’s volleyball team dropped a four-set decision to the Gamecocks in Columbia, winning the first set, 25-15, but coming up short, 25-22, 26-24, and 25-15, in the next three to fall to 7-12 in SEC play this season. The Red and Black close out their season against Auburn on Wednesday, where the Bulldogs hope to avoid an eighth loss in the autumn’s last ten outings and build momentum for a young team heading into next season.
