Recap of the weekend's sporting events for UGA

UGA Sports Information,, and Sean Taylor
It's Monday, and we got things to do this week. But before we get to it, let's see what Georgia athletics did over the weekend.

Equestrian was in South Carolina for the SEC Championships, where the girls beat Auburn, but couldn't knock off the Gamecocks for the title. The team will head to Waco, Texas for the National Championships just before Easter.

Women's tennis took care of Missouri and seventh-ranked Texas A&M without losing a match this weekend. Meanwhile, the men lost their first match of the SEC in College Station to the Aggies.

Baseball took two of three from Texas A&M at Foley Field over the weekend, including a dramatic walk-off win Friday night.

Georgia's men swimmers took home fifth at the NCAA Championships, with Chase Kalisz setting an American record and Ty Stewart getting honored for his academics.

Soccer took care of Wake Forest and Mercer in a shortened game, double header exhibition Saturday.

Softball dropped two of three to Missouri in a showdown of top 20 ranked teams, but 3B Alex Hugo was able to increase her NCAA-leading HR total to 15 in Sunday's victory to avoid the sweep.

On the track, Georgia went to Atlanta for the Yellow Jacket Invitational and came home victorious in the 200m (Johnathan Smith), 400m (Derrick White), 400m hurdles (Drew Branch), and 4x100m relay (Smith, Jamario Calhoun, Brandon Thompson, Reggie Glover).

And for those wanting to watch some collegiate golf in the Stockbridge area today or tomorrow, four Georgia girls are up at Eagles Landing Country Club near Atlanta. The tournament began yesterday, where sophomore and Alpharetta native Amira Alexander took the lead as the only golfer to post a round under par.

In other Georgia sports news, Kyle is keeping you up to date on lacrosse happenings. Also, Mark Fox is hard at work recruiting right now, with big men Fred Iduwe and Yante Maten in town over the weekend. Maten is a 6'8 PF who was named Gatorade's Michigan Player of the Year and is drawing heavy pursuit from Indiana at the moment, while Iduwa is a 7 footer from Nigeria that spent the past year in prep school after spending the previous season at a high school in Birmingham. Also, it seems Augusta wing and arguably the top recruit in the state for this year, Ahmed Hill, will reopen his recruitment after coach Buzz Williams left Marquette for Virginia Tech. Fox will likely try to get involved although like with Maten and Iduwa, he'll have to win their signatures over a host of other big programs.
