KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – With the match tied at 3-3, Georgia men’s tennis sophomore Jan Zielinski delivered a 6-3, 7-6 (4) win to send the No. 2 seed Bulldogs past Florida and into the Southeastern Conference Tournament Championship for the third-straight season.
The win marks No. 13 Georgia’s second victory against No. 14 Florida this season. The Bulldogs are now 16-7 overall, while the Gators fall to 17-9. On Sunday, the Bulldogs will be vying for their 10th SEC Tournament title and first since 2013. Georgia will face the winner of the matchup between No. 1 seed Texas A&M and No. 5 seed Mississippi State.
“I am so proud of our team,” head coach Manuel Diaz said. “Florida came out really strong in singles after we won the doubles point, and our guys showed a lot of fight. It was a very physical match and was really the first time this season we have faced this kind of hot weather. It took a lot out of us, but we just fought through it and were able to hold off Florida at crucial times during the match.”

ATHENS, Ga. — After South Carolina (29-21, 5-14) tied it in the top seventh, Alyssa DiCarlo hit a walk-off single to lead the No. 22 Georgia softball team (31-19, 4-16) to a 2-1 win on Saturday.

ATHENS, Ga. – Eighth-ranked Florida overcame an early Georgia lead to top the Bulldogs 6-3 on Saturday in the second of a three-game set at Foley Field.
Georgia (17-27, 5-15 SEC) garnered the first lead in the bottom of the second with a Keegan McGovern leadoff walk and a Mitchell Webb RBI single, but the Florida (29-13, 12-8 SEC) offense evened the score in the top of the third on a walk and a double of their own.
The tie proved short lived, as the Bulldogs connected on three consecutive hits on two outs from Cam Shepherd, Michael Curry and Keegan McGovern to secure a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the third.
In the seventh, Georgia starter Chase Adkins (5-5) loaded up the bases off a single, a hit by pitch and a walk before surrendering the mound to Ryan Avidano. The Gators then scored five runs off three base hits and two sacrifice flies, to make the score 6-1.

It’s a topic discussed year after year by Dawg fans everywhere.
Some like the tradition of the “World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party”. They don’t see it as being a problem that UGA loses a home game every two years. They love the atmosphere, the travel to Jacksonville. Some make it a week long vacation.
Others see this big rivalry as a home game for the Florida Gators every single year, no matter if the Dawgs are in red or white. They see Florida taking buses to the game, while the Dawgs have to fly. They see us losing a big home game every other year and thinks it hurts recruiting. At the least, they want a home/home series in Jacksonville and in Atlanta.
Well, there’s bad news for the second group. The game is set to be in Jacksonville for the forseeable future. Check out the details:
