While we’re waiting to learn whether the Bulldogs are going to get in the second half of their softball doubleheader tonight, I should take a moment to let you know that the Georgia track and field teams swept their dual meet with Missouri at the Spec Towns Track this afternoon.
In their final home meet before hosting the SEC Outdoor Championships in mid-May, the Red and Black notched a total of 26 individual or relay victories in the course of outscoring the visiting Tigers 111-81 in the men’s events and 121-80 on the distaff side.
In setting a career-best mark of 10:25.94 in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, Taylor Adams posted the second-fastest time in school history, while Nikola Lomnicka gave a season-best effort with 212-foot, three-inch hammer throw. Alesha Asijie’s second-place toss of 188 feet, five inches, represented a personal-best result for her.
Additional career longs for Georgia athletes were set by Brian Moore with a javelin throw that measured 241 feet, 11 inches; by Burke McCarty with a 174-foot, two-inch discus throw; and by T.J. Davilmar and Caleb Whitener with shot puts covering 58 feet, 5.75 inches, and 58 feet, 2.5 inches, respectively. Carin Walker’s 1:03.7 time in the 400 hurdles was her top time in that event for the season.
