Monday Morning Dawg Bites:

How 'Bout That 'Dawg? - Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It was a big weekend of sports in Bulldog Nation. Here are but a few of the highlights:

The Bulldog track team finished up the NCAA outdoor meet in Eugene, Oregon this weekend with the best finish in school history. The women finished 5th, behind champion Texas A&M, Texas, Oregon, and Florida (I hate Florida). The Bulldog men finished 6th (Oregon took home the title, with Texas A&M, LSU, and Florida also in the top 5). It's the first time in nineteen years that both teams have finished in the top ten, and the squad produced three individual champions. Congratulations are definitely in order.

Former Bulldog golfer Erik Compton had a great weekend at the U.S. Open, as good as anyone who isn't Martin Kaymer, in fact. With his second place finish Compton assures himself of a solid payday and a spot in the Masters next year. He's in line for an "Atta Dawg!" as well.

Incoming freshman wide receiver Shakenneth Williams received one last high school accolade, winning the Selby Buck Award, presented by the Macon Telegraph to the best overall athlete in middle Georgia. In addition to his football prowess (which has at least one blogger very high on his potential in the Classic City), Williams was also a better than fair basketball player for the Rutland Hurricanes (averaging in double figures for a team that made it to the state quarterfinals) and qualified for the state track meet in the long jump.

And if you've been wondering what current Bulldog football players are doing with their summer, you could follow all 90+ of them on Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest (Zach Debell's been selling the cutest little owl tea cozies). Or you could head over to Dawn of the Dawg where Krisi Cooper catches you up on the highlights.

Also Mark Richt and company hosted a prospect camp this weekend in Athens that drew a host of blue chip prospects. Expect some more news on the recruiting front tied to that event here at Dawg Sports this evening.

That should get you up and at 'em and out the door this morning. Until later . . .

Go 'Dawgs!!!
