We've celebrated a big football win; time to catch up on some more Bulldog action elsewhere on campus.

Let's dig right into the weekly roundup of UGA sports.

MEN'S GOLF

Finishing eight under par through three rounds, the Dawgs placed second in this weekend's Carpet Capital Collegiate Classic at The Farm in Rocky Face, behind first-place and event host Georgia Tech. Seniors Joey Garber (-4) and Michael Cromie (-2) finished fourth and fifth, respectively, among individuals. The team next competes September 20-22 in Nashville at the Ingram Invitational.

WOMEN'S GOLF

The ladies didn't fare quite so well, coming in twelfth place in the field of 15 at the Dale McNamara Preview. Head Coach Josh Brewer acknowledges there are things to work on, but "we're close." Next up: the Windy City Collegiate Classic in Chicago September 30 - October 1.

SOCCER

Georgia improved to 5-1 over the weekend with an OT 1-0 win over visiting Jacksonville last Friday and a 1-0 win at UNC Greensboro Sunday. That's five straight shut-out wins for those keeping score at home. There's no Georgia football this weekend, but if you're itching for a trip to Athens to cheer on the Dawgs, why not check out Georgia's Friday, 7 pm, match against Long Beach State and the Sunday, 2 pm, match against the College of Charleston? The matches will be at the UGA Soccer Stadium, Turner Soccer Complex, 2330 South Milledge, down by what we used to call the Intramural Fields. (And while your there, check out the dedicated Redcoat Practice Field, complete with little hedges.)

VOLLEYBALL

The volleyball team split a pair of matches in Lincoln at the Nebraska Tournament, sweeping Southern Miss 3-0 but falling to the host Cornhuskrices 3-0. The Dawgs hit the road again Tuesday and defeated longtime UGA archrival Georgia Southern 3-0 in Statesboro. The team returns to Athens for the Benson's Hospitality Group Invitational, facing North Florida Friday at 7 pm, U-La-La Saturday at 2 pm, and UNC Greensboro Saturday at 7 pm. These matches will be at The Steg.

MEN'S TENNIS

Georgia begins 2013-14 competition by hosting the Southern Intercollegiate Championships this weekend, September 13-16. This year's field for the nation's oldest fall tennis tournament will include Georgia Tech, Tennessee, and Ole Miss. Heading into 2013-14, Bulldogs in the ITA preseason individual rankings are sophomore Ben Wagland (19), junior Nathan Pasha (32), and senior Hernus Pieters (72). In the preseason doubles rankings, Pieters/Wagland are No. 2, and senior Garrett Brasseaux/Pasha are No. 7. Team rankings don't begin until January.

WOMEN'S TENNIS

The ladies don't hit the courts until next weekend, the Bulldog Classic, September 21-23. Junior Lauren Herring will head into 2013-14 ranked No. 3 nationally; junior Maho Kowase is No. 14; sophomore Silvia Garcia is No. 60; and senior Kate Fuller is No. 101. In doubles, Fuller/Garcia are No. 2; and Herring/Kowase come in at 50.

That catches us up somewhat in the busy world of UGA Athletics. Feel free to pick up my slack with news and scores in the comments.

Until next time,

GO DAWGS!
