Equestrian. The SEC Championships took place out in College Station, TX last weekend. The Tigers fell to UGA in the semi-final, but took 3rd place in the consolation match, upsetting #1 South Carolina. They have two weeks off before the NCEA Championships in Waco, TX.

Men's Golf. The men are going for a record-setting fourth straight tournament victory at The Hootie in South Carolina. They're currently tied for 5th with two days left to play. There's only one more tournament - in North Carolina next week - before the SEC Championships in Sea Island, GA.

Women's Golf. To be quite honest, I'm not sure how the tournament format worked for the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic in Athens, GA. I just know there was a stroke play qualifier, and then team match-play events. You can check out the recaps on the Women's Golf official page! As with the men, there's only one more tournament remaining - this weekend in North Carolina - before the SEC Championships in Birmingham, AL.

Gymnastics. I made a comment last week in one of the link-dumps about how I couldn't believe Caitlin Atkinson didn't get All-SEC. Well, she did get honored as First Team All-American on all-around. Megan Walker picked up second-team All-American on beam. The Tigers are getting set for this weekend's NCAA Regional here in Auburn, where they are the #2 seed.

Soccer. No match this weekend. They won't have another until April 18th.

Softball. I covered the weekend series against Missouri in this morning's "Coffee and Magnolia." The ladies also had a mid-week double-header in Tallahassee against the #11 ranked Seminoles. The Tigers split that double-header with a 10-7 loss in the first game and a 10-4 victory in the second game. The softball team is continuing to roll along, as they're 35-4 overall, 8-1 in the SEC. They face Tennessee in Auburn this Thursday-Saturday.

Swimming and Diving. The men took 9th in the NCAA Championships in Iowa City, Iowa this weekend. This is the 23rd straight season that the Tigers have finished in the Top 10 in the nation at the NCAA Championships. The season is now complete for the Swimming and Diving team.

Men's Tennis. The men won a double-header on Thursday against visiting Jacksonville State. They fell to Florida on Saturday, however, 4-1. This Friday and Saturday the men will take on Texas A&M in College Station and LSU in Auburn.

Women's Tennis. The ladies fell to #10 Vanderbilt 6-1 on Saturday, but rebounded with a big victory over #18 Kentucky 4-1 on Sunday. The ladies are on the road this week, facing Mississippi State in Starkville on Wednesday and Alabama in Tuscaloosa on Saturday.

Track and Field. Outdoor season is getting into swing. Ten Tigers set personal records on Fridays's opening days in Texas and Alabama, while four more set records on Saturday. Next up is a home meet, the Tiger Track Classic in Auburn, this weekend.
