A Pair Of Bulldogs Win SEC Track & Field Titles

May 10, 2013

COLUMBIA, Mo. --- Georgia junior Elizabeth Tepe and true freshman Maicel Uibo have won individual conference crowns during the second day of the Southeastern Conference Outdoor Track & Field Championships in Columbia, Mo.

Tepe, a native of Parker, Co., captured the Lady Bulldogs their fourth consecutive SEC title in the women's hammer throw.  Uibo, a native of Polva, Estonia, won the Georgia men their first SEC championship in the decathlon since 2002.

Tepe launched her second attempt a personal-best distance of 203 feet, 4 inches and won the competition by a foot and four inches.  LSU junior Denise Hinton had a top throw of 202 feet on her sixth and final attempt to move into second place, but could not catch Tepe.  Tepe's throw is the 19th best in the nation this year and is the ninth SEC title in the women's hammer throw for the Lady Bulldogs since 2000.

Uibo, who came into the meet with the world's third-best score this year and the country's second best in 2013, scored 7,781 points to win the decathlon.  Uibo started his second day by posting a personal best in the 110-meter hurdles (14.78) and managed to pull out a 202-point victory over Arkansas' Kevin Lazas.
