Don't worry, there will be a lot more coverage on Baseball in the coming weeks. A lot. For now, this is your reminder that we're less than two weeks away from the first pitch against Binghamton on Friday, 13 February.
I don't know much about how scoring works in gymnastics in terms of point differentials, but it was quite obvious that Auburn blew Air Force out of the sky on Friday night. Auburn's routines were much more difficult, and they were nailing them. The final was 196.625 to 190.900. Lexus Demers took the vault, Megan Walker took bars and beam, and Caitlin Atkinson took floor and the all-around title. The Tigers will face #6 Alabama on Friday in Tuscaloosa in a big event. Hopefully this will be the year Auburn breaks the streak.
#4 Auburn took on #5 SMU this weekend, and won 14-6. I really have no idea how equestrian stuff works, but the Tigers apparently did pretty well in their defeat of SMU. Demi Steigler was named MOP in Equitation over Fences, Griffin Knight was MOP in Horsemanship, Hailey Munger was MOP in Reining, and Elizabeth Benson was MOP in Equitation on the Flat. They will face #9 Georgia next on Valentine's Day. Stop by and take in the action after seeing the new Oaks put in place that morning!
Auburn opens the season this Thursday against Troy here in Auburn. Check out their full site for all of the position previews they have been doing. It's exciting times in Auburn softball, as Coach Clint Myers begins his second season on the Plains.
Swimming and Diving
Auburn finished the 2014/15 regular season with a dual sweep of Missouri on the road. The good Tigers won 20 of 32 events on the way to a 162-138 Men's victory and 167-132 Women's victory.
