Big Hitters

I know everyone is pretty excited about the start of baseball season, and rightfully so. Georgia couldn't be off to a much better start after sweeping Youngstown State last weekend, and the Diamond Dogs will be back at work tonight at Foley Field when they host Presbyterian.

I'm sure I'll devote a fair amount of space here over the next few months to the baseball team, but I stopped over to the softball complex today for a few interviews, too, and thought I should pass along a bit of love for the ladies...

-- Georgia's Alisa Goler earned SEC player of the week honors after a monster weekend in the Georgia Softball Classic, hitting .636 with three HRs and 16 RBI.

-- For the season, Goler leads the SEC in average (.615), OBP (.673), hits (24), RBI (36... yes, you read that right), homers (9) and total bases (57). That's in 13 games, folks. Yikes.

--Overall, Georgia is 12-1 this season and ranked 14th in the country. The Lady Dogs only loss came in their opening weekend series to Oregon State, and they have won nine straight since then.

-- Little bit of trivia... Georgia is the youngest team in the country, with just two seniors and no juniors on their roster. Four freshmen start for them.

-- On the year, Georgia has outscored its opponents... wait for it... 133-18.

-- Georgia will be playing in Columbus this weekend in a tournament that will bring 11 ranked teams -- including top-ranked Alabama -- to town. The Dogs open with games against DePaul and UMass on Friday -- both ranked opponents. If you're in the Columbus area, it'll definitely be worth checking them out.
