Quintunya Chapman

earned runner-up honors by scoring a personal-best 4,257 points, which ranks fourth in school history, thanks in part to a string of three consecutive personal records.  In addition, freshman

Aliyah Johnson

finished eighth in the competition with 3,515 points during her first collegiate meet.

In the men’s multi-events, junior Maicel Uibo (3,334 points) holds a six-point lead over junior Garrett Scantling (3,328) through four events of the seven-event heptathlon.

Bulldog head coach Wayne Norton talked to about the first day of competition.  “Our first day was a great day of results for us as I think we responded well to being in a meet with some superb teams. Our men in the hep are well positioned to place and score well on Saturday.”

The Georgia track and field teams began the season with the women ranked four four and men ranked 11. Coach Norton reflected on what lies ahead for both teams. “We will get better and better in the weight throw so the quality season openers for (Alex) Poursanidis, (Alex) Larsson and (Shelby) Ashe are encouraging.  We did decent in the 200s with Jamario Calhoun and Jon Okoye and (Sid) Vaughn had a second good race to open our season.  Our underclassmen running on the distance medley relay also looked like a group with some potential.  Again, I thought it was a good overall showing.”
