News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

GOLF

The Tigers made a run at it, but came up 1 stroke short of reaching the cut for the 15 team NCAA Championship.

SOFTBALL/EQUESTRIAN

Here's a neat story on the family aspect of Auburn and the way it surrounds the programs of two of Auburn's best coaches in Equestrian coach Greg Williams and Softball coach Clint Myers.

SOFTBALL

Auburn's PA announcer has been with the softball program since it began. He's seen them go through the years and the rise to a national power under Clint Myers. Check out his story and where he developed his sound.

Auburn lost Game 1 of the Super Regional and it seemed there was a very good chance the Tigers would miss out on a return trip to Oklahoma City. The ladies wouldn't quit, though, and powered their way through two back-to-back victories to punch their ticket to the Women's College World Series.

Part of that rally was powered by Haley Fagan, who didn't even see the field until the post-season. She still hasn't been able to get in on defense, she has to be pinch-run for when she gets on base, but her bat is starting to return to slugging form.

TRACK & FIELD

A number of Tigers qualified for the NCAA Championships in the final day of the NCAA East Preliminary. They'll now be heading to Eugene, Oregon for the NCAA Outdoor Championships.

FOOTBALL

It's that time of year where high school seniors are graduating all across the country and reporting to college to get busy on off-season workouts and prepare for fall practice in August. At least nine of Auburn's signees should have arrived or will arrive this weekend. That doesn't sound like much, at first, but remember that the Tigers had nine early enrollees this year, so that leaves very few to finish up their high school time and get here.
