Dawgs Recognized

Men's Tennis

University of Georgia junior Nate Schnugg has been named the Southeastern Conference Tennis Player of the Week, the league announced today.

Schnugg went a combined 3-1 at No. 1 singles and doubles in helping Georgia clinch the SEC Eastern Division title this past weekend. This is the second time Schnugg has been honored by the SEC this season.

The Dawgs (20-2, 9-1 SEC) moved up one spot to No. 4 in the latest Campbell/ITA Tennis Rankings. Georgia closes out the regular season here Saturday at 5 p.m. against No. 6 Tennessee. Georgia is 12-0 at home this season and owns a 59-match home winning streak at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex.

Track & Field

University of Georgia senior Justin Gaymon has been named the Southeastern Conference Male Runner of the Week.

Gaymon, a 5-9 native of Stewartsville, N.J., won the 400-meter hurdles with an NCAA regional qualifying and season-best time of 49.60 at the Spec Towns Invitational in Athens over the weekend. His time not only gives him the league's top time this season, but it also ranks second in the NCAA and is tied for fifth in the world so far this year.


Tenth-ranked Georgia Tech scored eight runs in the first three innings and cruised to an 11-6 win over top-ranked Georgia in front of 4,077 fans Tuesday at Foley Field.

“We pushed them as much as we could push them,” Georgia coach David Perno said. “You can’t get down on a good team like that. There is no margin for error. It was disappointing but our kids are accountable and they know that we just have to play better.”
