  • From UGA Sports Communications ATHENS---------The University of Georgia has partnered with Nike and the Soles4Souls program in order to bring donated sneakers to children in Costa Rica. Nineteen members of the UGA Athletic Association’s Student-Athlete Leadership Academy (L.E.A.D.) will participate in this service trip from May 6 through May 12.   UGA representatives scheduled for the trip include: Jeb Blazevich, Football; Mary Beth Box, Gymnastics; Maddie Burdick, Soccer; Summer Burnett, Soccer; Emily Cameron, Swimming & Diving; Michael Chigbu, Football; Haley Clark, Basketball; Taja Cole, Basketball; John Courson, Football; Sarah Gardner, Track & Field; Jackson Harris, Football; Jimmy Hicks, Track & Field and Cross Country; Lauren Johnson, Gymnastics; Kimberlee John-Williams, Swimming & Diving; Kendall Kazor, Volleyball; Elle McCord, Volleyball; Basil Orr, Swimming & Diving; Rachel Schick, Gymnastics; Rachel Zilinskas, Swimming and Diving.   Heather LaBarbera, UGAA Director of Student Services, has been a major part in the organization of the trip. The Soles4Souls program creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world.   “This is such an amazing opportunity for these student-athletes who have worked hard in their academics, in their sport, and in the community to be able to give back in a special way,” said LaBarbera. “This trip to Costa Rica is the first time we have done a service learning trip for our students, and it speaks to how much our administration cares about the meaningful experiences that our student-athletes get to be a part of.”   These student-athletes partnered with Soles4Souls at the Savannah State baseball game earlier this spring for a shoe collection. The shoes that will be given in Costa Rica are new Nike shoes that were shipped to Costa Rica on a container this past January.   “As student-athletes at the University of Georgia, we are given an incredible platform to impact others,” said senior Sarah Gardner. “With that being said, we are all very excited to team up with Soles4Souls and Nike and travel to Costa Rica to serve their community.”    This trip combines service and learning for the student-athletes in a new environment. In addition to the shoe distributions, the student-athletes will take part in a myriad of activities while there. During their six-day stay student-athletes will help with the handing out the sneakers as well as interact with the children receiving them. Additionally, they will visit the UGA Costa Rica campus and local government offices, cook with a local family, attend a dance workshop, and tour a coffee farm.

  • 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.
