More Recognition For Dawgs

Junior first baseman Rich Poythress has been named a College Baseball Insider Southeast Region Co-Player of the Week, and he has also been named to the College Baseball Foundation’s National All-Star Lineup, it was announced today.

Senior Monika Dancevic has been named the Southeastern Conference Tennis Player of the Week. She is the third Bulldog to earn SEC Player of the Week honors this season, joining sophomore Cameron Ellis (Feb. 9) and freshman Chelsey Gullickson (March 24).

After a 16-year break, Georgia and Georgia Tech's track and field teams will meet again in a dual meet at Tech's George C. Griffin Track in Atlanta on Thursday afternoon.

The meet will kickoff with the men's hammer at 5 p.m. while the women's 3000-meter steeplechase at 6:30 p.m. is the first event scheduled on the track. Five points will be awarded to each event winner and the second-through fourth-place individual finishers will earn three points, two points and one point, respectively, to decide the overall team winners.

Georgia swept the last dual meet in Atlanta in 1993 before Bulldog thrower Brent Noon won his second of three NCAA crowns in the shot put.
