So the #1 ranked and now 30-0 Georgia Men's Tennis team came from behind to beat Baylor last night in the national semifinals 4-3, after rolling Notre Dame 4-0 in the round of 16 on Saturday and Virginia 4-0 in the quarterfinals on Sunday. They have now advanced to the national finals for the 11th time, and will be seeking their 5th national title (1985, 1987, 1999, 2001).
Georgia will face #2 Pepperdine tonight at 6.30 p.m. PST down at Stanford in Palo Alto. I am going to drive down after work and check it out. This is a rematch of the ITA National Team Indoor Tournament earlier this year in which Georgia defeated Pepperdine 4-0. Another undefeated national championship tonight would be nice. It would be Georgia's 12th national championship since 2000.
Georgia has had a wonderful year athletically, already winning seven conference championships and capturing the SEC All-Sports trophy (finally ending Florida's 14 year stranglehold on said title).
Additionally, in the next two weeks the #6 ranked women's golf team will compete at the NCAA National Championships, as will the #1 ranked men's golf team, who will attempt to defend their 2005 national title. Lastly, the #9 ranked baseball team is on fire (14-1 in their last 15 games) and ready to make a run at the SEC Tournament Championship and College World Series.
