Husky Classic - Day One ResultsGet Acrobat Reader

SEATTLE, Wash. –  All five of the Bulldogs competing clocked personal-best times as the Husky Classic cranked up in Seattle, Wash., on Friday.

Junior Brandon Lord clocked Georgia’s best time in the 5000-meter run Invitational since the school record was set in 2007.  Lord finished 14th overall with a mark of 14:00.60, which shaved nearly 30 seconds off of his previous personal best.  This is the best time for the Bulldogs since Ian Burrell set a school record of 13:46.97 at the Tyson Invitational seven years ago.

Lord, who redshirted the 2013 indoor and outdoor seasons, currently has the second-fastest time in the Southeastern Conference this year.

In the other 5000 race, junior Charlie Sparks won his heat and was 21st overall after speeding to a 14:26.82 finish.  This took over the No. 9 spot in the Bulldog record books.  Behind Sparks in his heat was sophomore Steven Spevacek, who had a career-best time of 14:37.66 for 49th place.

Also in the same race, sophomore Zack Sims finished in 14:41.30 for 53rd.  This was the first indoor 5000 race for both Sims and Sparks.

Senior Leslie Boozer slipped into the school’s all-time list for the Lady Bulldogs by two-hundredths of a second to take 15th in the 5000.  Boozer completed her laps in 16:48.99, besting Nicole DiMercurio’s time of 16:49.01 at last year’s Husky Classic.
