Brook Jackson, Staff Writer

Georgia sports have been on top of their game the past few months. Currently the Georgia bulldogs are first in the Southeastern conference and the Braves are in the lead for the national league East championship series.

The University of Georgia is currently placed first in the south Ethan conference with a seven and no record by beating the Clemson Tigers, UAB Blazers, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, Arkansas, Auburn, and Kentucky.

Before Georgia was first in the Southeastern Conference Alabama was first until they were beaten on October 9 by Texas A&M with a final score of 41 to 38. Alabama is now ranked number four in the SEC.

This number one ranking for Georgia is the first time in the regular season since 1982. In 2008 Georgia opened the season in first but then dropped to third after the first week. During the 1982 season the Georgia Bulldogs were in their prime. They had the famous Herschel Walker who was a running back. In 1982 Georgia was moved to number one when they beat Florida 44 to nothing and then held that spot for the final games during the regular season. After Georgia fans saw that Texas A&M beat Alabama they realized that there is also room for Georgia to lose at any moment now that they are number one. On October 16 Georgia had an intense game against Kentucky. At the time Kentucky was six and oh just like Georgia. After the Georgia Kentucky game the Bulldogs determined that they were the better team and beat Kentucky 30 to 13.

Now the Atlanta Braves. The Braves are an all around team. They have an outstanding lineup with first baseman Freddie Freeman, left fielder Ronald Acuña Jr., center fielder Joc Peterson, second baseman Ozzie Albies, shortstop Dansby Swanson, left fielder Austin Riley and so many other talented players.

The Atlanta Braves are currently playing in the national league championship against the 2020 World Series champions the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers have won three national league championships in a row since 2017. Fans are excited the Braves have been giving it their all and the Braves are currently in the lead in the National League Championship series. depending on who wins the National League championship they will then face the Red Sox or the Astros in the 2021 World Series. 

The last time the Braves were seen in the World Series was in 1999. The Atlanta Braves lost the World Series to the famous New York Yankees. In 1995 the Braves won their very first World Series against the Cleveland Indians with a lead in the series of 4 to 2.

Georgia bulldog and Atlanta Braves fans are ecstatic for what’s to come. Georgia fans are hoping to stay on top and win the SEC championship in the National Championship. Kirby Smart’s goal is to make sure Georgia’s Head is in the game and to stay on top for the rest of the season. Braves fans are also ready for the Braves to be champions. If good things keep coming from these teams Atlanta will be on top of the world.
