Some Other UGA Notes

From UGA Athletics...

Houts Wins SEC Honor

Georgia's Ashley Houts was tabbed as SEC Player of the Week today by the league office in Birmingham after she posting three successive season-high scoring performances in a trio of wins for the Lady Bulldogs last week.

For the week, the junior from Trenton, Ga., averaged 19.7 points by connecting on 57.9 percent of her field goals and 90.0 percent of her free throws. She also was named MVP of UNLV s Lady Rebel Round-up.

Houts connected on 7-of-9 shots, including 2-of-3 from three-point rage, en route to 17 points against North Carolina Central. She then notched 20 points, including eight in a decisive 22-2 first-half run, in the Lady Bulldogs victory over Cal State Fullerton. Houts wrapped up the week by posting 22 points, including 15 in the first half, in Georgia s 75-61 win against Eastern Washington in the title tilt at the Lady Rebel Round-up.

Equestrian Team Gets a Home

The University of Georgia Athletic Association has signed a contract to purchase an existing horse farm near Athens that will soon serve as the permanent home for the Bulldogs national champion Equestrian team, Athletic Director Damon Evans announced today.

Beginning as soon as February of 2009, the Bulldog riders will train and compete at High Point Farm in Bishop, Ga., approximately 12 miles from the UGA campus.

"Coach (Meghan) Boenig, her staff, and team have established an Equestrian program at The University of Georgia that deserves the very best facility in the country, Evans said. This property at High Point Farm gives us that opportunity. The stable, paddocks, and fields are essentially ready for our team and horses now, but our long range plan for enhancements will ensure a first-class home for our National Championship team and at the same time, it will solidify our position at the forefront of varsity equestrian programs."
