News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

BASEBALL

The Butch Thompson era got off to a great start Friday afternoon when the Tigers' bats took off and led to a 10-5 victory over Sacramento State. Saturday's game wasn't as nice, though, as Auburn allowed the Hornets to stage a late comeback victory. Sunday ended in a similar fashion, as the Tigers dropped the opening series to the visiting squad from California.

BASKETBALL

The weekend didn't go well for either of the basketball teams. The men got TJ Dunans back, but lost Tyler Harris to a concussion early in the second half. They stayed with Ole Miss for most of the game, but just couldn't pull out the victory. The ladies had their five game winning streak snapped by Missouri as they're fighting for a berth in the NCAA Tournament.

SWIMMING AND DIVING

The men finished 2nd overall in the SEC Championships, but they did take a number of individual events, including the last one of the tournament.

SOFTBALL

The ladies suffered their first loss of the season, but they still had a big second week of the season, including waking the bats up in the final two games. The pitching was fantastic the whole weekend, only allowing five runs over the course of the six games played.

TENNIS

Women's coach Lauren Spencer became Auburn's all-time winningest coach with her 70th win this weekend. Congrats, coach!

FOOTBALL

So, um, Gus got a new car. It's pretty awesome.
