Hamilton’s record highlights UGA track team’s second day at Razorback Invitational

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Georgia sophomore Carly Hamilton set a school record in the 3,000-meter to highlight the second day of the Razorback Invitational on Saturday.

Hamilton’s finish gave the Lady Bulldogs two school records on the weekend and gave the Georgia program five victories in just its second indoor meet of the year.

In the team scoring, the Georgia men finished fourth with 63 points while the Lady Bulldogs were fifth (78).

Building on her strong cross country season, sophomore Carly Hamilton left a 23-year-old school record far behind in the 3000 Invitational to take third. Hamilton completed her laps in 9:20.89.

This topped Jolly Earle’s school record mark of 9:23.10 set during the 1990 season. It was the first time Hamilton had run this distance during her indoor collegiate career. Hamilton’s school record was the second of the weekend after Hilenn James set the all-time shot put mark on Friday.
