Winter/Spring UGA Sports Trivia

I know the news of Josh Harvey-Clemons being dismissed from the team this week is a bit of a smudge on what's otherwise been an outstanding offseason for Georgia football. Well, this might not be the most popular suggestion around here, but let's forget about football for just a short while.

Below are some trivia questions on select winter and spring Georgia sports. I hope you take a minute and try to answer all that you can. For those of you who have enjoyed my trivia, this will be the last trivia post for a while. For those who haven't, this will be the last trivia post for a while. :)
