In what’s hopefully a staple of the WLOCP going forward, Georgia and Florida faced off on Friday night for a baseball exhibition- some 8,600 were in attendance. The result withstanding, the atmosphere can do nothing but help Georgia’s players - other than playing at Arkansas or LSU, you likely can’t recreate an atmosphere like that, and the Dawgs are better for it.
Women’s soccer, following a regular season in which a defensive improvement was makred by seven shutouts, heads to the SEC tourney seeded sixth. Georgia plays third seed South Carolina on Tuesday. The conference has also awarded All-SEC honors, with defender Kayla Brewer and forward Chloe Chapman, also part of the women’s basketball team, collecting recognition.
A four-set win on Sunday against Tennessee gave the Volley Dawgs a season sweep of the Volunteers. Georgia (17-5, 9-2) hosts ranked teams this week - Kentucky on Friday and Mizzou on Sunday.

On the same day that former Bulldog All-American Brendon Todd ran away with the PGA Tour’s Bermuda Championship, Phillips needed seven extra holes to dispatch Oklahoma’s Quade Cummins. On the decisive hole, Phillips rolled in a birdie putt to claim medalist honors.
In his career, Phillips had finished second once and third four times.
For the Georgia women, Zoie Hartman continued her red-hot start, winning three races with b-cut times in each one. Andrew Abruzzo broke his personal best mark in the 1000 freestyle, his 8:59.25 time also being the eight-best in school history.
And on the ice...the Dawgs also found success in Jacksonville.
