Lady Bulldogs host Mustangs this weekend

Jan. 14, 2002

The Georgia women's swimming and diving team returns home for a weekend meet against the Southern Methodist Mustangs Saturday at noon at Gabrielsen Natatorium. This will be the fifth meeting between the two teams, with Georgia holding a 3-1 advantage in the series history. In the last meeting, the Lady Bulldogs came away with a 168-130 win in Dallas a year ago.

SMU is one of only four teams to post a victory against the Lady Bulldogs since the beginning of the 1991-92 season. Florida is 6-5 against Georgia in that span, and Stanford and Texas were victorious earlier this season.

The No. 7 Mustangs, who are 1-2 on the year, are coming off a 146-108 loss to fourth-ranked Arizona last Saturday.

Georgia drops pair of meets to Longhorns

The men's and women's team both suffered defeat last weekend at Texas. The women lost 174.5-125.5 on Friday afternoon, while the men fell to the two-time defending national champion Longhorns 135.5-101.5 on Saturday. Ashley Roby highlighted the women's meet by winning three events. Stefanie Williams and Katie Yevak each won one event. Robert Margalis, who was swimming in his first collegiate meet, won three events against a fine team, including the 1000y and 500y free races. Marc Lindsay won the 200y back for the Bulldogs.

What's on tap

After the Lady Bulldogs' meet against SMU, the men's team will face instate rival Georgia Tech at Gabrielsen Natatorium Jan. 25 at 6 p.m. With little rest, the men and women will be back in the water the following day, Jan. 26, to take on SEC foe Tennessee. That meet is scheduled for 1 p.m.
