Equestrian. The Equestrian team's regular season is complete. They will be competing in the SEC Championships in College Station, TX this Saturday. There is a bit of news to report, however. Senior Bailee Bussey was named to the All-SEC Community Service Team!

Men's Golf. The #4 ranked Tigers continued their winning ways this past weekend in Statesboro, Ga. They picked up the win at the Schenkel Invitational and finished with the second lowest 54 hole total in Auburn history. Auburn senior Dan Stringfellow shot a 12 under 204 to take medalist honors. Their next tournament will be in Awendaw, SC, at the Hootie at Bulls Bay Intercollegiate. They'll be going for their fourth straight tournament victory.

Women's Golf. The ladies' last match was the beginning of March, but they're back in action this weekend at the Liz Muphey Collegiate Classic in Athens, GA. You can check out a spring notebook recapping what the ladies have been up to lately at the official site.

Gymnastics. The Tigers finished 4th in the SEC Championships with a record score for the event of 196.925. The Tigers finished the championships on a high note, taking the beam title. You should really go to the official site and read everything you can about this team. Coach Graba has brought a whole new level of excitement to gymnastics on the Plains. The ladies set numerous program records this season and are really on the rise. They will next be involved in the NCAA Regional here in Auburn on April 4th!

Soccer. The spring schedule is rolling along, and the Tigers are 2-0-1 after a defeat of Georgia in Atlanta on Saturday. There will be a big game before the next spring match, however. They next face Clemson at Clemson on the 18th of April.

Softball. The softball teams continues to kick posterior and take names. The Tigers are 6-0 in SEC play, 32-2 overall. They lead the nation in home runs with 68. Two Tigers are within four dingers of the school record for home runs on the season, and they still have 22 regular season games left. The Tigers faced Top 15 ranked Kentucky over the weekend and swept the visiting Wildcats. You can read Friday night's recap here, and the double-header on Saturday here. Oh, and Jane B. Moore Field got a new addition that I'm sure plenty of Auburn people (especially those who attended Auburn while it resided in its spot in front of Beard-Eaves) will recognize.

Swimming and Diving. The women's NCAA Championships took place late last week. There are a ton of articles on it on the S&D page on the official site that you should check out! The men's championships will by this coming weekend, Thursday-Saturday, in Iowa.

Men's Tennis. The men fell to Ole Miss on Friday in Oxford, but bounced back to win on in Fayetteville on Sunday against Arkansas to snap a five-match losing streak. This weekend the Tigers will return home. We'll have much more information on how you can check them out here in Auburn later today or tomorrow in Everett's "Home on the Plains."

Women's Tennis. The ladies' weekend didn't go so well, as they fell to A&M 4-0 out in Texas on Friday, and then 5-2 to LSU in Louisiana on Sunday. The ladies will also return home for matches this weekend.

Track and Field. The track and field team is preparing for the outdoor season to begin later this week and this weekend out in Austin, TX and Tuscaloosa, AL. They'll next be in Auburn at the beginning of April.
