It's slower than usual in the UGAAA this time of year, but here is a round-up of some of the latest news surrounding your Bulldog teams as we enter the summer months:

*Baseball's Hunter Cole was named a Freshman All-America, while several of his Diamond Dog teammates were chosen in this month's MBL draft. Read more about the draft here.

*Track & Field performed solid at the NCAA Championships, with the women recording their highest team finish since 2007 and freshman pole vaulter Morgann Leleux taking second place in her event. More here.

*Mark Richt's new contract was finalized and approved, securing Richt in Athens through the 2016 season while Director of Athletics Greg McGarity's contract was extended through 2017. 

*Gymnast Kat Ding and swimmer Wendy Trott were named Capital One Academic All-Americans, with UGA one of just four schools (Alabama, Duke, Vermont) to have two student-athletes named to the prestigious list. More on that here.
