Lawrence Sets SEC Mark in 400

From UGA release...

Georgia sophomore Torrin Lawrence topped the meet record to win the 400-meter dash title during the final day of the Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships in Fayetteville, Ark., on Sunday.

A completed updated report, including team scores, will be released following the conclusion of Sunday’s events.

Lawrence, who came into the race with the world’s fastest 400 time this year (45.03), ran out of the second heat and clocked a 45.10 to win the second SEC indoor title of his career. Lawrence was the 2009 league champion in the 200.

Lawrence was forced to answer Kirani James after the Alabama freshman had a 45.24 to win the opening heat. But Lawrence reacted by speeding to the second-fastest time of his career and topping Kerron Clement’s 45.29 SEC Championships meet record set in 2005. Lawrence, who already has the third-fastest indoor collegiate time in history, now also has the fourth-fastest time as well.

Good to see Torrin Lawrence get some love, he's one of the great unheard of stories in UGAA if there is such a thing. Phenomenal talent

I've been watching the combine today, and I have two notes of interest for you.

Jeff Owens got 44 reps in the bench-press, which was the second highest number since 2000.

Also, Tebow did the three cone drill in 6.66 seconds. 6.66. I'm just sayin'...
