News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

Anthony Hall / Auburn Athletics

Sorry for the delay. I don't have internet at night in our barracks, and this is entirely too annoying to do from a phone. It may be delayed every morning until Friday, this week.

BASEBALL

Auburn needed a series win. They got one. Some masterful pitching by Justin Camp in a Saturday complete game and a great relief job by the bullpen (along with a big time come back by the batters) helped get the Sunday victory for Auburn's first SEC series victory of the season.

BASKETBALL

Two future Tigers who will be arriving this summer had a big night in a high school all-star game up in Louisville. Mustapha Heron and Jared Harper showed Auburn fans why there are big reasons to be excited about the future of Auburn basketball.

EQUESTRIAN

National Horse Rides Champions, PAAAAWWWWLLL!!! WE A HORSE SCHOOL. Well, we kind of are, really. The ladies came away with the fourth NCEA National Title in school history, Saturday night. See the official site's article on the win and the celebration, too.

GYMNASTICS

The Tigers fell just short of a second straight trip to the NCAA Super Six, finishing 5th in the first semi-final period to close out their season (the top 3 of each semi-final advanced). Going to the NCAA Championships for the second straight year was a big step forward for Coach Graba's program, though.

SOFTBALL

See some of the SEC plays of the week from ESPN, here. I'll have a wrap-up of Auburn Softball's ridiculous display of destruction a little later this afternoon.

TRACK & FIELD

15 Personal Records were set by various Tigers at the Texas Invitational, this weekend. That's a pretty impressive feat. There were some medalists for the Tigers, as well.

TENNIS

The women recorded their school record 9th SEC victory over the weekend when they knocked off #20 Kentucky. The ladies have had a pretty nice year.

FOOTBALL

Jordan Diamond is calling it quits on his football career. He had a very heartfelt goodbye, crediting Auburn with saving his life. He saw first hand how he could help children from his home town when the New Schmid Elementary School kids visited over the Fall.
