ATHENS - Georgia coach Mark Richt had the same questions on his mind as Bulldog football fans during the annual G-Day spring football game Saturday at Sanford Stadium: Who's going to step up for last year's seniors who are gone from the program? In particular, the Bulldogs' coach was looking for some clarity to the depth chart to see who could emerge as a contender for a starting position for the 2008 season with a roster chocked full of returning players from last year's Sugar Bowl champions.
Georgia sophomore pitcher Alex McRee, a Chestatee High grad, earned the win for the Bulldogs in their 11-3 win against Clemson on Tuesday night at Foley Field in Athens. McRee finished with a career-high seven strikeouts and didn't allow a hit to improve to 4-1 on the season. "Alex has done a solid job on the weekend for us and was solid tonight," Georgia coach David Perno said.

A Georgia cheerleader was released from the hospital Monday, a day after she hit her head hard on the court during the women's NCAA tournament.

Conley, a senior, is expected to make a full recovery. Reifsteck said the team trainer got to her within seconds and found her awake and alert.
