LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Georgia’s Elizabeth Tepe captured her second consecutive Southeastern Conference women’s hammer throw title and the multi-events commenced on Thursday, the opening day of the 2014 SEC Outdoor Track and Field Championships hosted by the University of Kentucky at the Kentucky Track and Field Complex.

Tepe used a facility record toss of 64.18m/210-7 to claim the women’s hammer throw crown. A Georgia athlete has now won five consecutive SEC women’s hammer throw titles and eight of the last 10. LSU’s Denise Hinton was second with a toss of 63.21m/207-4, while Alabama’s Nia Barnes was third at 60.26m/197-8.

“It is just as sweet as winning the title last year, if not sweeter,” Tepe said. “I'm proud to be at Georgia and you couldn't ask for anything better. It has been a sweet, sweet SEC meet so far and I am pumped to see the Bulldogs win some more events."

Georgia’s Maicel Uibo, the defending SEC decathlon championship, currently leads through five events with a score of 4,059, winning two of the five events on the day. Kentucky’s Ibn Short and Georgia’s Garrett Scantling, the national leader, are tied for second with five-event totals of 3,872. The final five events of the men’s decathlon will take place Friday.

Georgia’s Kendell Williams, the national leader in the women’s heptathlon, currently leads the event with a four-event total of 3,656.
