Rise and shine Dawg fans, we've got a full day of action so let's get down to it.
15 Georgia student-athletes are in Fayetteville, Ark competing in the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships.
Seniors Lucie Ondraschkova (pentathlon) and Saniel Atkinson-Grier (high jump), juniors Stella Christoforou (DRM), Megan Malasarte (DMR), Nicole DiMercurio (DMR) and Hilenn James (shot put), sophomores Carly Hamilton(mile, DMR), Morgann Leleux (pole vault) and Tynia Gaither (DMR) and freshmen Shaunae Miller (400-meter dash, DMR) and Chanice Porter (long jump) will be representing the Lady Bulldogs.
The Bulldog men have a pair of competitors in both the shot put and the heptathlon. Sophomore Nick Vena and junior Caleb Whitener (shot put) will join sophomore Garrett Scantling and freshman Maicel Uibo (heptathlon) in the Razorbacks' Randal Tyson Indoor Track Center.
The men and women will be hitting the range or course early, as both are in action this weekend. Chris Haack's men are in Lost Wages, while the women (and SEC Golfer of the Week Rocio Sanchez Lobato) head to Hootie's even in Hilton Head.
The Softball Dawgs are in Rock Hill this weekend at the Winthrop/adidas Invitational. After two games Friday (Delaware St, Winthrop), they have two games again today (Kent St and Western Illinois), before one more on Sunday (North Carolina A&T;).
The Diamond Dawgs are hosting Liberty for a 3 game set this weekend. Today's game starts at 3, while Sunday's finale gets going at 2.
Men's Hoops takes on Alabama at 4 in Tuscaloosa. The game will be on ESPN3 if you're not in the SEC television area for an SEC Network affiliate. A win here could burst another bubble, while improving the argument for an NIT bid.
For the Gymdawgs, Stegeman hosts a top 10 showdown between Georgia and Utah tonight at 6. Big, big meet between the two winningest programs in history.
Landers' Lady Dawgs will also be competing tonight at 6, facing Kentucky in the SEC Women's Tourney Semifinals in Duluth, airing on ESPNU.
Other events this weekend:
Men's tennis are in the Magnolia State this weekend, @ Ole Miss Friday and @ Miss St Sunday.
The women's tennis team is pulling the reverse, hosting Ole Miss Friday while Miss St will be at the Magill complex Sunday.
