UGA Reports One Violation In Spring Semester

Georgia reported just one NCAA secondary violation between January 1 and May 13, a minor countable athletically related activities (CARA) violation in the softball program:

Head softball coach Lu Harris-Champer reported her team practiced for four hours and 15 minutes on March 5, which is a violation of NCAA’s daily hour limitations. According to NCAA Bylaw, athletes are not permitted to practice for more than four hours a day.

For this violation, Harris-Champer received a letter of admonishment and the team received an extra day off during the week the violation occurred. It is always curious when a major athletic department falls below a one violation per month average, but normally these periods are just the coaches being extra careful and tend to even out over time to the school’s historic average.
