  • From UGA Sports Communications ATHENS, Ga. --- The 10th ranked Georgia (7-0) offense dispatched Presbyterian (1-5) 10-1 and 8-0 in Wednesday night’s doubleheader at Jack Turner Stadium.  Combined for the two games, senior Maeve McGuire led the Georgia hitters, going 4-for-5 with three doubles and five RBI. Sophomore third baseman Alyssa DiCarlo followed with a 3-for-5 performance, including a home run in each game, totaling up to five on the season.  In the first five-inning game, freshman right hander Mary Wilson Avant (1-0) picked up the first win of her college career, pitching the first, second and fifth innings, while freshman Amanda Ablan provided two perfect innings of work in between with four strikeouts.  On the offensive side, Cortni Emanuel and Sydni Emanuel collected two base hits apiece at the top of the lineup. The duo scored the first two Georgia runs in the first inning on a McGuire double. In the second inning, a pair of Emanuel stolen bases and another McGuire double made the score 7-0. To seal the 10-0 final, freshman catcher Mahlena O’Neal and DiCarlo each powered two-run home runs over the right field wall in the second and fourth innings, respectively.  In the second game, junior Brittany Gray (4-0) and Avant each pitched three innings of scoreless work. Gray surrendered only one hit and struck out five in the first half of the game, while Avant gave up two with two strikeouts.  The Bulldogs gathered two more runs in the first inning courtesy of the Emanuel duo. They were driven in by a double from DiCarlo, whose two-run home run in her next at-bat capped a five-run second inning for Georgia. The scoring paused until the sixth inning when pinch runner Jordan Doggett scored from second on an error from Presbyterian.  This weekend, Georgia welcomes Northern Kentucky, Louisiana-Monroe and Dayton to Athens for the 14th annual Georgia Classic. The Bulldogs kick off the tournament on Friday with a doubleheader against Northern Kentucky and Louisiana-Monroe at 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. ET.

  • From UGA Sports Communications ATHENS--------- Two days short of one year since the groundbreaking occurred, official dedication of the University of Georgia Indoor Athletic Facility (IAF) was held Tuesday inside the new 102,306 square foot structure. Participants in the ceremony included UGA President Jere W. Morehead, J. Reid Parker Director of Athletics Greg McGarity, head football coach Kirby Smart, and track and field Olympian and three-time national champion Keturah Orji.  “The Indoor Athletic Facility is a testament to the tremendous loyalty, passion, and excitement that our alumni and friends feel for Georgia athletics,” said UGA President Jere W. Morehead.  “Working together, we are fulfilling our commitment to provide our student-athletes with the tools and resources they need to succeed at the highest levels.”  The $30.2 million project was completely funded by private gifts and includes a 100-yard football practice field, 65-meter track runway and jumping pits, and a netting system that will provide indoor practice areas for other teams during inclement weather.  “This is a wonderful day of celebration for our entire athletic program,” said UGA J.Reid Parker Director of Athletics Greg McGarity.  “This new indoor facility will provide a first class, state of the art practice environment that will benefit our sports and student-athletes for decades to come.  We are grateful to the members of the Magill Society for helping make this facility become a reality.”  The new facility is connected to Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall and stretches north and south along the western side of Rutherford Street.  Full dimensions of the football practice field are 140 yards long and 80 yards wide.  The Woodruff practice field complex will now include the new indoor facility with artificial turf, two natural grass football practice fields, and an outdoor artificial turf multi-purpose area.  “We are all grateful and appreciative of the many donors who stepped up and provided the entire funding for this facility,” said UGA head football coach Kirby Smart.  “This new indoor facility is a remarkable addition to our overall football footprint.  It opens many new doors for the opportunities our student-athletes will have to practice not only in adverse weather conditions but also provides a first-class working environment for parts of our strength and conditioning and nutrition programs.”  During construction, the football team practiced at a location off S. Milledge Avenue near the UGA soccer-softball complex.  For the past year the football team has utilized a temporary practice area which is part of the UGA Club Sports Complex.  On that location, the Athletic Association constructed two new full-length natural grass fields and one full-length artificial turf field which will now be returned to the UGA Club Sports program.

  • From UGA Sports Communications COLLEGE STATION, Texas --- Georgia’s track and field teams combined for five meet records, two school records and 11 victories at Texas A&M’s Aggie Invitational in College Station, Texas, on Saturday. Senior Kendell Williams captured wins in the 60-meter hurdles and the long jump with the best marks in meet history to highlight the second of four regular season indoor meets for UGA.  Junior Mady Fagan (high jump), senior Alex Poursanidis (weight throw) and junior Keturah Orji (triple jump) also won with meet record marks as the Lady Bulldogs and the Georgia men attempt to approve their No. 3 and No. 8 national rankings, respectively. “We had a great day today in College Station,” said Bulldog head coach Petros Kyprianou.  “Every time you get team members to hit marks that rank at the top of the NCAA list is encouraging and highly contagious to the rest of the team.  Both teams competed with pride and laser focus while gathering some very high quality marks.  In addition to our standouts today, many of our competitors continued with more of the same success including Shelby (Ashe), Darius (Carbin), Kate (Hall) and others.”  Kyprianou expressed to his teams on Friday that he is ready for both of them to be at the top of the rankings when the NCAA Indoor Championships are complete. “I asked them last night, ‘Why not you?  Why do we have to be the ones who are disrespected because we don’t dominate the running events – yet?  Why can’t we just show up and expect greatness?’  Our team motto of find your greatness seems to be sinking in and all of our groups and areas seem to be responding.  Our ultimate goal is to get as many as we can to NCAAs.  Personal bests and high rankings are great for momentum, but the big picture becomes much more clear in March.  Our student-athletes are onboard and I’m very optimistic for the future, as long as we stay healthy and happy!”  During her first action in the triple jump since the Rio Olympics, Keturah Orji picked right up where she left off at the collegiate level in 2016 and took over the 2017 national lead.  Orji went over 45 feet three times, topping out at 45 feet, 9 ¼ inches to win by three and a half feet.  Her junior training partner Aliyah Johnson surpassed 40 feet for the second straight time this year and finished third (40-11.75).  “Keturah keeps proving she is an invaluable member of this team and a fierce leader,” said Kyprianou.  Two weeks after senior Tatiana Gusin popped a personal record of 6-2.75 in the high jump to grasp the national lead, Mady Fagan answered that performance with a career-best clearance of her own at 6-2.75 to win on Saturday.  This clearance came on her first try and tied her for No. 2 in the school record books.  “Mady showed she belongs in the elite group of female high jumpers,” Kyprianou said.  Kendell Williams bested her own school record in the 60m hurdles and shot to No. 2 on the current national list.  After winning the prelims with an 8.18 over freshman teammate Louisa Grauvogel (8.58), Williams sped to an 8.07 in the finals.  This time was faster than her 8.09 at last year’s NCAA Championships in the pentathlon and Hyleas Fountain at the 2004 SEC Championships.  Williams notched a second win on the day in the long jump with her top effort since 2015.  Taking only three attempts as she does in the multi-events, she traveled 21-4.75 to win by two feet and vaulted her to No. 2 on the national list. “Kendell continues to remain humble and continues to progress from where she started,” said Kyprianou. Trimming .09 seconds off his prelims time, sophomore Kendal Williams established a school record in the 60m finals to win.  He ran a 6.68 to best former Bulldog Eric Hall’s time of 6.69 set in 1997 and move into a tie for the nation’s seventh-best time this year.  This marked Williams’ official debut for the Bulldogs after redshirting in 2016 following his transfer from Florida State. The Bulldogs a managed a 1-2 finish in the weight throw highlighted by the second-best toss in the nation this year.  Alex Poursanidis, who put a career-long toss of 69-10.50 out two weeks ago, had five throws that measured at least 71-2 on Saturday.  His top mark was 72-6.50, which is the best for a Bulldog since NCAA champion Andras Haklits exploded for an 80-2 throw in 2001. “I thought Alex surprised himself again with a nice personal best in the weight throw,” said Kyprianou. Sophomore Denzel Comenentia finished second in the weight during his first competition in the event with an effort of 65-7.50 with just three throws.   Comenentia also won the shot put after reaching 59-11. Georgia completed the sweep in the weight after senior Shelby Ashe watched her fourth attempt travel 68-9.75.  This is also the second-best mark on the school’s all-time top-10 list and put Ashe at the No. 6 spot on the national list.  Junior Asianna Covington finished third (65 feet).  In the men’s high jump, true freshman Darius Carbin posted a first attempt clearance at 7-1.50 to register his first collegiate victory.  He has now surpassed the 7-foot mark in each of his first two meets.  Sophomore transfer Keenon Laine finished third with a third attempt clearance at 7-0.25, also reaching 7 feet for the second time in 2017.  Freshman Sam Drop moved into the No. 9 spot in the school record books and into the country’s top 15 this year with a runner-up finish in the 3000m.  Drop ran a 9:33.62 in her first collegiate race at the distance.  Kendell Williams’ older brother, Devon Williams, was the only competitor to break 8.00 in the 60m hurdles and won with a time of 7.96.  Like her brother, Devon is training for the multi-events when the postseason arrives.  Junior Bryan Kamau picked up a victory in the men’s mile after completing his laps in 4:08.01. The Georgia women managed a second and fourth-place finish in the mile with junior Morgan Ainslie running a personal-best time of 4:55.45 for runner-up honors.  True freshman Yanely Gomez finished two spots behind with a 4:57.33.  The Lady Bulldogs had two qualifiers for the 60m finals in sophomore Kate Hall and junior Katie Stone.  Hall, who won the prelims, finished third while Stone clocked a season-best time of 7.56 in the first round and finished fifth (7.61) in the finals.  Also of note, junior Devon Artis ran the fastest indoor 800m time of her career (2:11.97) for third place.  The Bulldogs will quickly return to action at the Razorback Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark., on January 27-28.  Updates from Georgia’s track and field and cross country teams can always be found on Twitter/Instagram (UGATrack) and Snapchat (ugatrack).
  • From UGA Sports Communications ATHENS, Ga. — The  16th-ranked Georgia gymnastics team celebrated its home opener in style, sweeping event titles en route to a 196.875-194.800 victory over No. 25 North Carolina State on Monday afternoon at Stegeman Coliseum.  Sydney Snead took her fourth and fifth event titles of the year with a 9.95 on vault and a 39.4 in the all-around. Rachel Schick tied her career-best with a 9.9 on bars, highest on that event, and she posted a new career-best with a 9.925 on beam to take another title, boosting her season tally to three. Top score on floor went to freshman Sabrina Vega, who scored a career-high 9.925 in her first floor routine in front of the home fans. “It felt really tremendous to compete at home,” said Georgia head coach Danna Durante. “I think it felt really good to build on what we did on Friday. To me, the true mark of a team is when adversity comes your way, are you going to get stronger or break apart? This team is stronger than before we went into LSU and I think that every meet is going to make them stronger. We are going to continue to just band together and build off each other and I think that’s a true mark of great team chemistry and love for each other. I think when those weaknesses were exposed, nobody loved it, but it certainly made us stronger and a tighter unit.”  Morgan Reynolds and Snead had career-best scores in the first rotation, scoring a 9.9 and 9.95 on vault, respectively. Two 9.8s from Rachel Dickson and Gigi Marino kept the momentum going, and Georgia owned a lead of 0.35 at 49.225-48.875 through one rotation.  A new career-high on bars for Schick, 9.925, paced Georgia in the second as the Gymdogs built their lead to 0.75 at the halfway point. The home team also got solid scores from Lauren Johnson (9.8) and Dickson (9.85) to take a 98.35-97.625 lead heading into the third. Ashlyn Broussard and Schick each eclipsed the 9.9 plateau, with 9.9 and 9.925, respectively, in the event. The Gymdogs also debuted Hayley Sanders with her first routine on the balance beam, and she posted a 9.775 in a confident run, and Georgia totaled a 49.225 in the third rotation to take a 147.575-146.5 lead into the final event.  Georgia punctuated its victory with a 49.300 as a team on floor, its best floor score of the season. Vega went for a 9.925 and Snead scored a 9.9. The Gymdogs were solid top to bottom, with no one scoring less than a 9.825.  The Gymdogs are back in action on Friday as they host Arkansas at 7 p.m. for their annual blackout meet.

We were a little sluggish at the start, but middle of the week meets are very different for us. We got better as we realized that we were there and it's always nice to win against Tech in Atlanta.'

We will be hard-pressed to win the women’s meet, as they have quite a few talented swimmers. I think Wisconsin will be a heck of a challenge, especially coming off of today. They always come ready to compete.' Georgia’s teams return home to Gabrielsen Natatorium this weekend to face Wisconsin. Friday’s competition begins at 4 p.m., while Saturday’s events will kick off at 10 a.m. The Lady Bulldogs will be looking to extend their home win streak to 102 consecutive dual or tri meet wins, dating back to the 1995 season.
