Georgia set to host 16-team field at the Georgia Invitational this weekend in Athens
Gabrielsen Natatorium will be the site of the 2001 Georgia Invitational as the Bulldogs host a 16-team field in the three-day event. Along with Georgia, men's and women's teams from ACC members Georgia Tech, Clemson and Florida State will compete, as well as a pair of squads from Florida Atlantic, Minnesota and Alabama. Both Northwestern and Michigan will be participating on the women's side only. Preliminary heats begin at 10:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday with the evening finals set for 6 p.m. Sunday's competition begins with a morning session at 9:30 a.m. and the final session slated to start at 3 p.m. Last year the Georgia women finished first with a lead that was never in doubt, finishing with a commanding 1251-728 advantage over second-place Clemson. The men battled through the 800-yard freestyle relay in the final event of the weekend but were edged by then-No. 18 Minnesota 1039-1031 to take second place.
Standing strong in the polls
The Lady Bulldogs claimed the No. 2 spot in the latest CSCAA poll released Nov. 15. Georgia received 186 votes, while Stanford got all eight first-place nods and 200 total points. The men stand in 15th place, while Stanford and defending champion Texas are No. 1 and No. 2, respectively.
