Believe it or not, the University of Georgia fields teams of student-athletes in sports other than
football men’s basketball. Inasmuch as we actually happen to be good at some of them, I figured it was worth mentioning how the Bulldogs were faring in a few of those fields of endeavor. Here now, a summary of newsworthy events regarding the Red and Black:
- One day after Mark Fox’s Georgia Bulldogs battered the Mississippi St. Bulldogs into submission by a 22-point margin, Andy Landers’s 24th-ranked Lady Bulldogs took on the women’s basketball team from Starkville, building up a 20-point halftime lead en route to a 78-58 victory.
- After capturing the doubles and singles titles to close out the SEC Indoors, the Georgia men’s tennis team is set to host Clemson in the season’s home opener tomorrow at 2:30. On the distaff side, the Bulldog women’s tennis team opened the 2011 campaign on Friday by beating Memphis 7-0.
- The Red and Black swimming and diving teams were in action in Knoxville on Saturday, with the second-ranked Georgia women defeating Tennessee and the No. 11 Bulldog men getting the better of No. 12 Indiana.
- Baseball season is still a few weeks away---curse you, uniform start date!---but the Diamond Dogs have received a little good news on the eve of their attempt to obtain redemption for the worst season in school history: Georgia will make three regular-season appearances on ESPN in April and May, as part of the Worldwide Leader’s television deal with the SEC. Meanwhile, the future looks bright for David Perno’s program, which recently inked the nation’s No. 2 signing class.
This has been your brief break from football recruiting and men’s basketball, to which we shall return forthwith.
