ATHENS, Ga. --- University of Georgia sophomore pole vaulter Morgann Leleux of New Iberia, La., will miss the Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships while recovering from a procedure to repair a detached retina.

 

Leleux was diagnosed with a detached retina on January 27 and underwent a repair procedure the following day in Athens.  Her return to competition is unknown at this time.
