SAVANNAH -- The woman who owned the University of Georgia lineage of "Uga" bulldog mascots has died. <br />
UGA President Jere Morehead says Cecelia Seiler died on Thursday in Savannah. Seiler, the wife of Frank "Sonny" Seiler, made a red t-shirt with a black 'G' to fit the couple's first bulldog puppy in 1956. <br />

Nick Markakis hit a tie-breaking, two-run single off third baseman Nick Prado's glove with two outs and the bases loaded in the eighth inning and the Atlanta Braves beat the Miami Marlins 4-2 on Friday night for a rare home win.
The response amongst northeast Georgia's coaches was overwhelmingly positive following the Georgia High School Association's announcement on Thursday that it will no longer hold its annual basketball championship games in the Macon Coliseum.
