The weekend was a wild one in the sports world, as brackets were busted everywhere thanks to Dayton and Mercer and others in the annual madness. But while UGA isn't involved in the big dance, they had plenty of craziness happen also.

Swimming and Diving won their second straight national title, leading throughout the meet in Minneapolis. This is Georgia's sixth national title in women's swimming and diving, and sophomore Brittany MacLean was honored as Swimmer of the Meet. We also had the Diver of the Meet, in hometown girl and senior Laura Ryan, as well as Coach of the Meet in Dan Laak.

Georgia's strong play on the golf course isn't just for the pros. Senior Michael Cromie led the way for the top 5 Dawgs as they won down in Greensboro at the Linger Longer.

On the tracks of Tuscaloosa, Georgia had a strong day, including a win in the men's 4x100 as they opened their outdoor season.

Softball took 2 of 3 in College Station as they took on a top 20 Texas A&M. Meanwhile around the corner in Red Stick, the Diamond Dawgs fought hard but lost two to LSU and had to come home yesterday with a 2-2 tie in 13 innings after the time limit passed.

Basketball season is over in Athens, as the men lost to Louisiana Tech Saturday morning. The girls then went down to St. Joseph's in their first game of the NCAAs last night.

More bad news came from Birmingham, as vineyard has already told you. In good news though, Georgia had 4 gymnasts earn All-SEC honors.

On the hard courts, men's tennis is still winning having beaten both Vanderbilt and Kentucky over the weekend. The ladies took care of Kentucky Friday, but were unable to come home victors from Nashville.

Oh, and for those who care about this little known sport, football is practicing for the spring.
