Georgia Sports Communications

Various sports across campus are wrapping up their fall sessions and finding success along the way.

Georgia’s volleyball squad is coming off of a pair of losses, 3-0 on Friday to Kentucky and 3-1 on Sunday against Mizzou. Georgia is at Ole Miss and Mississippi State next weekend.

Despite the loss, a milestone was reached on Sunday.

On Sunday, setter Meghan Donovan notched her 1,000th-career dig. Not only did she become to 21st member of the 1,000-Dig Club, but she also became the 14th member of Georgia’s Double Grand Club as she has over 4,600 assists. She is only the third Georgia setter to join the Double Grand Club and the first since Jill Moore in 1991.

Georgia’s second-ranked equestrian team topped No. 7 Fresno State 10-9 on Saturday. Ali Tritschler and Kate Kramer were rewarded with Most Outstanding Performance honors after riding to scores of 79 and 84 in Flat and Fences, respectively. Sophomore Kaitlin Dierks was also recognized with MOP honors for her ride in Horsemanship. This marks the first career MOP honors for Kramer and Dierks. The Bulldogs (4-1, 1-1 SEC) are coming home from California with two wins after beating No. 8 Baylor, 10-6, on neutral footing Friday.

Georgia’s fall schedule wraps up on Friday at Auburn.

In women’s tennis, it was a strong finish to the fall season from an individual standpoint.

Vivian Wolff and Elena Christofi capped the fall season with a win in the consolation finals at the Oracle ITA Fall National Championships in Newport Beach, Calif. Sunday evening. Wolff and Christofi, ranked No. 19, defeated the 29th-ranked pair Jessie Gong and Samantha Martinelli of Yale in a three-set battle, 6-1,2-6,10-8. After controlling the first set, the Bulldogs were sent into a match tiebreaker where the tandem rallied to notch its final win of the season. With the win, the Christofi/Wolff duo improved its fall record to 12-4.

Men’s tennis also wrapped up its fall schedule. Philip Henning fell in the Round of 16 singles Friday afternoon to close out his run at the ITA Fall National Championships.

Go Dawgs!
