After the first day of the SEC Championships, Georgia has two men in the top-5 of the decathlon andone Lady Bulldog in the womens heptathlon, Lucie Ondraschkova, who currently sits in eighth place.

Ondraschkova began her day with a season-best in the 100-meter hurdles, where she clocked a 14.35, just .06 seconds behind her personal record.

The time had the Opava, Czech Republic native finishing eighth.

By the end of the day, however, Ondraschkova hadachieved a personal record in a separate event.

Ondraschkova finished the 200-meter dash in 25.56 seconds, also placing eighth.

The two eighth-place finishes came outside of a seventh place finish in the high jump and a sixth place finish in the shot put.

The 36 feet, 7.50 inch shot put was the second best of her career.

Ondraschkovas totals leave her with 3,083 total points, 372 pointsbehind Arkansas junior Makeba Alcide, who holds first place.

Lucie had some good things happen and a couple struggles, said Bulldog multi-events coach Petros Kyprianou. She started off with a strong 100 hurdles and ended with the best 200 time of her career. The thing about Lucie is that she is a gamer.
