Got a long way to catch up in Tack and Field if we want to be more competitive.

Not a great showing but had no idea uga was that good to overtake UF in the men's. Just means we got a ways to go to catch up with the top teams. But if uga can do why not us.

One guy from UGa won the shot put and hammer throw and thus scored more points than the entire AU team.  Mostly it just takes 3 or 4 really world class athletes to win the team score the way points are distributed.   AU had a second and third in the 400 meters for men and that was more than half our points.

Should be noted that this is the first time in 10 years that AU has placed in the top 20 for both men's and women's teams. It's not world beating, but it's progress. In fact, the majority of our athletic teams have had outstanding seasons compared to their usual standards. I don't have all of the numbers, but it may have been the best overall year AU has had.
