Georgia concluded its 1998 season with a 3-1 win over in-state rival Georgia Tech and evened its overall record to 14-14.
After a 4-11 record to begin the season, Georgia turned its fortunes around with a 10-3 record down the stretch. The Lady Bulldogs swept SEC East rival South Carolina for the first time since 1994 and entered the SEC Tournament with an 8-6 conference record. Georgia and USC tied for the No. 2 spot in the SEC East standings, but in the tie-breaking process took the No. 3 seed for the tournament.
Early on, the Lady Bulldogs were beset by injuries, most noticably Allison Dickinson's torn ACL. She sustained her injury early into the first game of the Clemson match and missed the entire season.
• Nnenna Amobi, Cassie Brill, Rebecca Dady, Allison Dickinson, Courtney Shealy and Mindi Westfall were selected to the 1998 Southeastern Conference Honor Roll. Georgia and Tennessee topped the list with the most honors for one school.
• Kathy Vis earned SEC Player of the Week honors for the second week in a row for her efforts in Georgia's three wins the week of Nov. 9. She is the first Lady Bulldog to receive the honor twice in the same season since Priscilla Pacheco did so in 1993 and the first ever from Georgia to win the award in back-to-back weeks since the award was instituted in 1991.
• Cassie Brill and Wendy Powell concluded their careers as Lady Bulldogs and were recognized in a ceremony before the Georgia Tech match. Brill is second on the team in hitting and Powell is third in service aces and fourth in digs.
