Bama Relays - Day OneGet Acrobat Reader

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. --- The Bulldog track and field teams competed during the opening day of the John Mitchell Alabama Relays in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Friday as the participating teams prepared for a rainy day two on Saturday.

Junior Elizabeth Tepe starts the action for UGA on Saturday in the women's hammer throw at noon ET.  The women's 4x100-meter relay is the first event on the track during day two starting at 7 p.m.

There is a 60 percent chance of thunderstorms in the Tuscaloosa area on Saturday as a majority of Georgia's team members prepare to compete.

On Friday, senior Saniel Atkinson-Grier matched her opening meet performance of 5 feet, 8 ¾ inches to be the top collegiate finisher in the high jump.  Former Lady Bulldog All-American and two-time Olympian Levern Spencer (6-0.75) was the only competitor to top Atkinson-Grier, who cleared her first height on her second try after passing the first three heights.

In the 1500, senior Leslie Boozer set a personal best (4:34.60) to win her heat and take third overall.  Her junior teammate Nicole DiMercurio also had a career-best time of 4:44.63.

The Bulldog men went 6-7-8 in the 1500 with freshman Zane Coburn (3:53.87) leading the way.  Sophomore Charles Grethen bettered his time from a week ago to 3:54.20 while freshman Zack Sims finished in 3:54.47.

Also of note, sophomore Marrion Kalafut ran the fastest time of her career (18:01.76) to take 11th in the 5000.
