Joe Nicholson-US PRESSWIRE
The Gabrielson Natatorium (the pool part of the Ramsey Center/Spacenter in Athens) is hosting the SEC Swimming and Diving Championships this week. They began yesterday, continue today at 6, and will run through Saturday.

And day 1 was a good one for the wet Dawgs, as they set 4 school records and the Lady Dawgs sit at the top of the leaderboard right now. Ann-Perry Blank became the first Georgia women's diver to take gold in the 1-meter diving at the SEC Championships, as her score of 325.50 also established the highest 1-meter diving score in a championship event in Georgia history.

In the 200 medley relay, Lauren Harrington, Melanie Margalis, Olivia Smoliga, and Chantal Van Landeghem brought home the victory while setting a new Georgia record, and pool record, of 1:35.52. Taylor Dale, Nicolas Fink, Doug Reynolds and Michael Trice set a school record with an NCAA qualifying time as they finished second in the men's 200m medley relay. In the women's 800 freestyle relay, Brittany MacLean, Margalis, Amber McDermott, and Shannon Vreeland, set a new Gabrielsen Natatorium record taking gold with a time of 6:53.04.

This evening, swimmers and divers will compete in the 500 freestyle, 200 individual medley, 50 freestyle, 200 freestyle relay and men's 1-meter diving. For ticket information, please visit georgiadogs.com or call the UGA ticket office at 706-542-1231 or 877-542-1231.
