The Mustangs came out of the gate strong this weekend after pulling a nail-biting victory over the defending national champion Georgia. This win marked the Mustangs second win over an NCEA ranked opponent. It was just three weeks ago when SMU upset then No. 8 Texas A&M.; 

SMU was tied with the Bulldogs 9-9 and kept fighting to outscore UGA 1525.25-1350. 

“We had a couple weeks to prepare for this one and I felt that we came in very prepared,” First-year Head Coach Carol Gwin said. “It was a huge win for us and it came at the perfect time over parent weekend. We had tremendous support today. It was a great environment at the Sleepy P.”

Sylvia de Toledo was a standout on Charm taking an 88-64 victory over UGA’s Liza Finsness. 

The Mustangs only defeat was a close one when SMU’s Alex Butterworth lost to Megan Southam 87-85. 

Other Mustangs who scored points for SMU were Emma Roberts with 81, Schaefer Raposa with 79 and Alli Toffolon with 72.
