Sydney Chambley led the Bulldogs all weekend, including the regional final. Chambley hit a pair of home runs on the day, giving her 4 during the Athens regional.
Shelby Walters pitched 6 dominant innings in the run-rule win. She scattered 5 hits and 3 runs while striking out 5 batters in the victory.
Georgia will face the winner of the Tallahassee regional in the next round. Florida State and South Carolina are playing in a winner-take-all game in that regional. If South Carolina pulls off the upset, Georgia will host the Gamecocks in the Supers.
This is Georgia’s first Super Regional appearance since 2021.

would have been nice to host the SR, but not at the cost in likely having to face gobourne in a best of three match-up. the lady dawgs are better off in facing the noles in tally.
