The women's track and field team made history over the weekend, finishing 3rd at the NCAA Indoors in Albuquerque. Freshmen Kendell Williams (pentathlon) and Leontia Kallenou (high jump) brought home national titles, with Williams setting school, collegiate, and world junior records with her point total. Sophomores Chanice Porter (long jump) and Maciel Uibo (men's heptathlon) finished second in their respective events.
A tape delay of the NCAA Championships will air on ESPNU on March 22 starting at 6:30 p.m Outdoor events start on March 20-22, with the Dawgs heading to Tuscaloosa for the Alabama Relays.
On the courts, both Georgia tennis teams are heating up. The men followed up an upset of top ranked Ohio St last week with weekend victories over South Carolina and Florida. They are now 10-5 on the year, 5-0 in SEC competition, and winners of 7 straight. The ladies have 8 wins in a row, thanks to a mid week win against Virginia, a 4-0 sweep of South Carolina Friday, and a 4-2 victory Sunday over Florida. Sunday's matches against #3 Florida were held indoors on the Lindsey Hopkins Courts in Athens and took the Lady Dawgs to a 12-2 record overall, 5-0 against SEC foes.
The top 20 ranked softball Dawgs are rolling right along after a weekend sweep of Mississippi St saw them move to 25-2 on the year (3-0 SEC). Sophomore 3B Alex Hugo led the way this weekend with 7 hits in the 3 games, including a HR in each one, for an SEC Player of the Week performance. They'll next play Gardner-Webb in Athens, Wednesday evening at 6.
The Gym Dawgs had their highest score of the season end in disappointment losing at Utah Saturday. Next up for Danna Durante's squad is the SEC Championship in Birmingham, as they'll compete in the second session Saturday at 7 p.m. ET. We start on floor, Florida will start on vault, LSU on bars and Alabama on beam.
And lastly, Andy Lander's women's basketball team will find out their NCAA fates this evening on ESPN at 7. GO DAWGS!
