I’m gonna write a recap on each SEC team and how their season went. I decided to use the final regular SEC season
standings starting at the bottom and going upwards for the order I do them.
First up is Georgia who had a down year finishing at the bottom of the SEC standings with a 6-18 conference record and decent 35-23 overall record. The team played good at home (24-8) but struggled on the road (3-12) and against
Top 25 opponents (4-19).
It was a down year for the Bulldogs because they have set the bar so high with their 16th consecutive seasons of 35+
wins with many of them 40+ & 50+ wins seasons.
Every team in the SEC made it in to this year’s playoffs with Georgia going to the Tallahassee Regionals. After starting off with a 4-2 win over Jacksonville St. they then lost 1-7 to host team Florida St. before getting another win over Jacksonville St. 8-2 then being eliminated by Florida St. with a 5-8 loss in the Tallahassee Regionals championship game.
I expected a better season for the Bulldogs with a deeper playoff run but I guess the several key players they lost at the end of last season was too much to overcome. Those loses included pitcher Chelsea Wilkinson who had been the team’s ace that carried the pitching staff. Also the loss of Alex Hugo was big not only due to her onfield play but also for the leadership she provided for the team.
While by Georgia standards this might have been a down year look for Georgia’s head coach Lu Harris-Champer, who will be starting her 22nd year in coaching and 18th year at Georgia, to get the team back on track next season.
