Georgia extends winning streak to 17
Margalis tallies pair of victories to propel Bulldogs past Auburn
AUBURN, Ala. -- Top-ranked Georgia remained undefeated with a 133-110 victory against No. 6 Auburn on Friday afternoon at the James E. Martin Aquatics Center.
The Lady Bulldogs pushed their record to 4-0 overall and 2-0 in the SEC. They won their 17th consecutive dual meet and improved to 50-1 in their last 51 competitions.
"I thought we were very, very good tonight," Georgia coach Jack Bauerle said. "The Auburn teams are deep and strong, and both of our teams got a real test. I thought our kids raced real hard and we had some spectacular swims. We've still got some work to do, but I see us getting better and better as the meets go by."
Wendy Trott and Melanie Margalis were double winners for the Lady Bulldogs. Trott won the 500 freestyle in 4:47.07 and the 1,000 freestyle in 9:38.88. Margalis took the 200 individual medley in 1:59.04 and the 200 breaststroke in 2:13.56.
