No. 2 South Carolina Travels to Face Top-Ranked Georgia
Nov. 1, 2012
COLUMBIA, S.C. - No. 2 South Carolina returns to action on Friday, as the Gamecocks hit the road for the first time this season to face top-ranked Georgia. Friday's meet at the UGA Equestrian Complex is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.
"We're looking forward to getting on the road tomorrow after having a few weeks off from competition," South Carolina head coach Boo Major said. "Georgia looked pretty sharp in its first two meets of the season against Texas A&M and Baylor, so I think our girls know that in order to give ourselves a chance, we're going to need to ride as mistake-free as we can and ride with confidence. I think everybody has looked good the last few weeks at practice, so hopefully that carries over to Friday's meet."

SOUTH CAROLINA NOTES
Friday's meet at Georgia is the first of four straight road meets for the Gamecocks, all of which take place during the month of November. The Gamecocks will close out the fall schedule with three meets in three days during a Texas road trip to Texas A&M (Nov. 16), Baylor (Nov. 17), and Southern Methodist (Nov. 18).
Friday's meet is one of only five home meets for Georgia this season. The Bulldogs will be on the road for their next five straight dual meets, and do not return home until Feb. 23 when they host Auburn.
Georgia freshman Rachel Kolb won the All American Quarter Horse Congress Youth 15-18 All-Around Championship last week. She was also named the Youth Reserve Champion.
Last regular season meeting (Feb. 4, 2012) - South Carolina jumped out to a 5-4 lead on Georgia, but the Bulldogs dominated the second half of the meet, winning seven of the final ten points, holding on for the 11-8 win.
