Where Do The Individual Bulldogs Rank?:
Georgia is slated in the top eight scoring spots in 23 places for the SEC meet, including conference leaders in the men’s 60m (junior Kendal Williams), women’s high jump (senior Tatiana Gusin, junior Mady Fagan), women’s triple jump (Orji) and pentathlon (Kendell Williams).
“Our goal since day one, and we have worked really hard on this, is having a complete team on both the men and women’s side,” said Bulldog second-year head coach Petros Kyprianou. “I think it is a testament to our coaches’ hard work and our student-athletes’ dedication to reaching their goals that we are position to have at least one qualifier in most every event group, and most of those are highly ranked. Our goal for SECs is to keep people fresh and ready to compete and do the best we can versus the top conference in collegiate track and field.”
