Georgia Men's Track Team Finishes Third at SEC Indoors for Bulldogs' Best Finish in 18 Years

Fresh from signing four Peach State prep stars (including one from my old high school!), the Georgia track and field teams headed to Lexington for the SEC Indoor Championships over the weekend, ultimately notching the Red and Black’s best finish at the league-wide event since 1994.

On the first day of competition, Bulldog heptathletes set four personal-best marks and carded a pair of first-place finishes in the first four heptathlon events. Cory Holman won the men’s 60-meter dash, while Garrett Scantling came in first in the high jump.

The pair of Red and Black heptathletes combined for five more personal bests on Saturday, with Holman taking the top spot in the men’s 60-meter hurdles and Scantling setting individual high marks in the 60 hurdles, the pole vault, and the 1,000-meter run. Holman and Scantling posted overall top five finishes in the heptathlon, with the former breaking his own school record in the event. Also on the meet’s second day, Torrin Lawrence posted a season-best time in the men’s 400-meter dash preliminary heat.

The Bulldogs capped off the weekend with three individual SEC crowns on Sunday, pacing a third-place finish for the Georgia men’s team. For the first time in his career, senior Aaron Evans won the 800-meter run, enabling him to join teammates Colleen Felix (women’s triple jump) and Lawrence (men’s 400-meter dash) among the ranks of the individual conference champions.

Following next month’s NCAA Championships in Boise, the Red and Black will kick off their outdoor track season with the Georgia Relays in Athens, beginning on March 23.
