It's Spring Break for most students but women athletes on campus, with many Franklin majors among them, are leading their NCAA teams and distinguishing the university at the highest levels:

Georgia senior shortstop [and mathematics major] Alyssa DiCarlo broke the Georgia women's softball all-time home runs record (58) in Sunday's 6-0 win over Western Illinois.

The Georgia GymDogs secured a first-place finish at Elevate the Stage in Birmingham, Alabama, on Friday night with a score of 197.350.

The GymDogs defeated No. 10 Minnesota, No. 20 Arkansas and Michigan State.

Senior Sydney Snead and junior [biology Pre-med major] Sabrina Vega led the GymDogs on the beam, each receiving a 9.9. 

The Georgia track and field teams brought home a pair of titles along with a brand new school record from the SEC indoor championships this weekend in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

The 23rd ranked Lady Bulldogs surprised with a seventh-place finish and 49 points scored. 

The women’s 4x400 relay team finished fifth overall, clocking in at 3:31.97. The relay consisted of Micaiah Ransby, [freshman biology major] Sterling Lester, Amber Tanner, and Lynna Irby. With their time, the Lady Bulldogs' 4x400 relay solidified their spot at NCAAs.

The Georgia women’s tennis team defeated Texas A&M 4-0 on Sunday afternoon in Athens and moved to 3-0 in the SEC.

Congratulations to all of our student-athletes. Full-time students competing as athletes at the highest levels fulfill responsibilities that amaze us as we watch them become leaders on and off the fields of play.
