Georgia Men's Tennis Team Concludes Perfect Regular Season

Normally, my reports on sports are limited to football, baseball, football, men's and women's basketball, football, women's gymnastics, football, and (of course) football, but the site is called Dawg Sports and this warranted mentioning:  the Georgia men's tennis team, ranked No. 1 in the land, completed the first undefeated regular season in the program's history with a win over Tennessee in Knoxville this afternoon.  

The Bulldogs are 22-0 overall, 11-0 in conference play, and the tenth N.C.A.A. squad to have completed the regular season with a perfect record since 1977.  The Red and Black earned a first-round bye as the top seed in the S.E.C. tennis tournament, which commences on Thursday in Tuscaloosa.  

This is neither here nor there, but, during my third year of law school, I worked in Madison, Ga., as an intern for the assistant district attorney who handled cases in that portion of the Ocmulgee Judicial Circuit.  The lawyer under whose supervision I worked was a fellow University of Georgia graduate who played tennis for the Bulldogs during his own days as a student in Athens.  At the outset of his first year of law school, he was still ranked in the world tennis rankings, which I thought was pretty cool.  

Anyway, congratulations are due to the Georgia men's tennis team on this outstanding achievement.  

Go 'Dawgs!
