"I thought our kids did a really good job today," Georgia coach Jack Bauerle said. "Two meets in one week is a difficult proposition, especially if one is on the road. But they responded great and raced hard today. I like the way our teams are coming together."

Georgia will return to action next Friday at Florida.
