Coach Caryl’s Comments: “We have had a steady stream of outdoor debuts over the last two weekends and now it’s time to continue that pattern at the Florida Relays,” said Bulldog head coach Caryl Smith Gilbert.
“We are taking a big group to Gainesville and are hoping the weather will cooperate for us to continue to collect more Regional qualifying performances. I am looking forward to see where we are as April begins.”
Return To Florida Relays: Georgia will be competing for the first time at the Florida Relays since 2019. That year, the Bulldogs picked up a pair of improvements to the school record books with Olympic medalist Lynna Irby clocking an 11.40 in the 100m and All-American Amber Tanner registering a 53.59 in the 400m.
Weekly Honor For Boling: Following a weekend that saw Matthew Boling register a wind-legal personal best in the 100-meter dash, the Southeastern Conference awarded him with its Men’s Runner of the Week honor.
This marked the first of its kind for Boling outdoors, who had earned the Newcomer of the Week once during the 2021 outdoor season (the Bulldogs did not have a 2020 outdoor season because of the pandemic).
Boling won the 100m at the FSU Relays last weekend with a time of 10.03 (+1.9 wind). This time leads the NCAA Division I, ranks fourth on the 2022 world list and is third on Georgia’s all-time top-10 list.
Glimpse At Where This Season Will Take The Dogs: The Florida Relays mark the third of seven scheduled regular season outdoor meet weekends through the end of April, including the fifth-annual Torrin Lawrence Memorial (April 29-30) in Athens on the Spec Towns Track.
The SEC Championships will arrive on May 12-14 in Oxford, Miss., with the NCAA East Prelims scheduled for May 25-28 in Bloomington, Ind. The 2022 NCAA Championships are in Eugene, Ore., on June 8-11.
