ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia sophomore sprinter  Matthew Boling has been named the Southeastern Conference Men’s Co-Runner of the Week for the second straight week following the Razorback Invitational, according to a league announcement.

Boling, a native of Houston, Texas, shared this week’s honor with Texas A&M’s Bryce Deadmon. Boling was the 2020 SEC Indoor Men’s Freshman Runner of the Year and was a two-time SEC Freshman of the Week last indoor season in addition to his Co-Runner of the Week honor last week.

Boling made his season debut in the 200-meter dash and left his previous school-record time of 20.66 from 2020 behind to win. He registered a 20.53 in his fifth collegiate race at this distance.
