GAINESVILLE, Fla. --- The Bulldog track and field teams posted a series of strong finishes to highlight the final day of competition at the Pepsi Florida Relays in Gainesville, Fla., on Saturday.

"The men and women competed very well today," said Bulldog assistant coach Jon Stuart. "We ran some different relays that we are not used to and ended up qualifying several athletes for the East Regionals. It's great to have a high-quality multi-day meet to prepare for the SEC Championships."

Georgia captured a victory in the distance medley relay after completing their laps in 9:57.66. Sophomore Charles Grethen, junior Eric Mills, senior Daniel Grass and freshman Kisean Smith clocked a time of 9:57.66 to cruise to a victory in the event.

Other highlights for the Bulldogs came from Georgia's throwers. Sophomore Nick Vena, who was making his outdoor debut for UGA, recorded an effort of 61 feet, 6 ¼ inches to take fourth in the shot put. This is the seventh-best throw in Bulldog history.

Also in the shot put, junior Caleb Whitener took seventh while reaching 60 feet with a top throw of 60-1.

Junior Elizabeth Tepe also posted her second-best performance of her Lady Bulldog career to take third in the hammer throw. Tepe lifted her fourth attempt 194-1 to be the top SEC finisher.

The Bulldogs return home for the Spec Towns National Team Invitational starting on Thursday in Athens.
