Chanice Porter won the long jump, and Freya Jones won the javelin. Leontia Kallenou was second in the high jump.

Johnathan Smith, Jamario Calhoun, Reggie Glover and Brandon Thompson combined to win the 4×100 relay, earning the Bulldogs’ best time since 2007.

Smith and Thompson finished first and second, respectively, in the 100.

Maurice Freeman won the 200. Glover took second. Drew Branch won the 400 hurdles, and Charlie Sparks won the steeplechase.

Georgia will compete in the Mt. SAC meet in Walnut, Calif. and the War Eagle Invitational at Auburn.
