Equestrian. The #4 ranked Auburn equestrian team dropped a home meet to #5 Georgia on Saturday. It looked bad at the half, as Auburn was down 7-3. They mounted a comeback, but couldn't pull out the victory and fell 10-9 to the visiting Bulldogs. They now have two weeks off before returning to action on February 28th in Columbia, S.C.

Women's Golf. The ladies are in Puerto Rico for the next few days, competing in the Lady Puerto Rico Classic. They're in 10th place after yesterday's first round. The tournament runs through Tuesday. After spending this time in Puerto Rico, their next trip will be to Hilton Head Island, S.C. for another three day tournament. Sounds rough, doesn't it?

Gymnastics. So close. So very close. Losing to the #2 team in the country by half a tenth of a point is nothing to hang your head over. The visiting Tigers pulled out the victory 197.350 - 197.300. That score was Auburn's highest score of all time. It's easy to see Coach Jeff Graba has this team going places fast. MJ Rott and Lexus Demurs tied for the vault title with 9.950 scores. Megan Walker took the beam title with a score of 9.925. The Tigers' next meet will be this Friday night in Columbia, S.C.

Softball. The softball team is straight wrecking people. I mean they're blistering their opponents. I don't know if it's quality of opponent or Coach Clint Myers has the team that much improved, but I suspect it's a combination of both with a little lean on the latter. Clint Myers has done big things everywhere he's been, and it's looking like his time at Auburn will be no different just from looking at how the team is playing this early in his second season. We'll have more on the softball team a bit later.

Swimming and Diving. Auburn's aquatics teams have been preparing for the SEC Championships, which begin tomorrow at the James E. Martin Aquatics Center in Auburn.

Men's Tennis. The men took down two ACC opponents this weekend, defeating Clemson 6-1 on Friday and Georgia Tech 4-3 on Sunday. The Tigers are on a seven match win streak.

Women's Tennis. The ladies won three matches this weekend, taking a double-header over Samford and UAB on Saturday in Birmingham. They closed out their non-conference schedule with a victory over Troy to complete the weekend streak.

Track and Field. The indoor track and field season came to a close this weekend, and the Tigers were split all over the country for their final meets. More personal and school records were set by a number of Tigers in those events as they prepare for the post-season.
