Bodda Getta Daily Brew 4/8 - Lights, Cam, Action

Cam Coleman was one of many who made a big impression during A-Day spring game

Good morning. Hometown freshman Towns McGough kicked seven field goals and drilled a 58-yarder on the final play to give Auburn's offense a 28-27 A-Day victory to conclude spring practice Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Fellow early enrollee Cam Coleman also shined, scoring the scrimmage's only touchdown on a 34-yard pass from Payton Thorne early in the fourth quarter. 

"To walk into the stadium and to see all our cheerleaders, our band and fans show up for a spring game like today just tells you about the Auburn spirit, the Auburn Family,” Auburn coach Hugh Freeze said.

🔼 And the Crowd Goes Wild. In front of one of the largest Auburn tennis crowds in recent memory, the Tigers fought back for a thrilling 4-3 marathon victory over No. 23 Alabama Friday afternoon at the Yarbrough Tennis Center.
Tyler Stice provided the winning moment with a 5-7, 7-6 (10), 7-6 (2) win on court 1 in a singles match that lasted more than three hours.

🔼 Green Jacket Optional. Auburn redshirt sophomore Casey Weidenfeld carded a 2-under 70 in the final round of the Augusta National Women's Amateur at historic Augusta National Golf Club on Saturday. Her 54-hole total of 214 (-2) resulted in a tie for fifth place finish in her first time competing in the prestigious tournament.

Weidenfeld's round was highlighted by three consecutive close approaches that led to birdies on holes No. 13, No. 14 and No. 15 at Augusta National. Her finish marks the highest by an Auburn golfer at the event, behind only Anna Davis, who won the tournament in 2022 before joining the Tigers.

🔼 Saturday Split. After shutting out Louisiana Tech (24-11) to open the second day of action at the War Eagle Classic, Auburn softball (20-12-1) rallied in the seventh but fell a run shy to Georgia Tech (25-16) to split a Saturday doubleheader at Jane B. Moore Field.
Behind a 15-strikeout effort from Maddie Penta, Auburn shut down Louisiana Tech's offense to etch a 5-0 victory in Saturday's opener. Against the Yellow Jackets, Auburn scored two in the seventh inning to make it a one-run game, but Georgia Tech held on to claim a 10-9 win in the War Eagle Classic finale.

🔼 Leaving it All on the Mat. The Auburn gymnastics team closed out the 2024 season Friday night, scoring a 196.8 to finish third in the NCAA Berkeley Regional Semifinal in Cal's Haas Pavilion.
"I thought the team fought hard tonight," head coach Jeff Graba said. "You can't afford to lose anyone in a meet like this and unfortunately, we had to lose or modify big routines throughout the meet and paid the price."

🔼 They Rolled the Tide. No. 16 Women's tennis defeated 24th-ranked Alabama by a 4-3 score in Tuscaloosa on Friday evening. The win marks the Tigers' fourth consecutive win over their in-state rival.
"It was another hard-fought match, especially when you're playing against a rival at their home courts," Auburn interim head coach Lester Cook said after the win. "The girls did a great job of keeping focus and fighting for every point. I'm super proud of them and happy to get the win."

🔼 Fast Start. Just Not Enough. Auburn dropped the rubber game to No. 4 Tennessee 19-5 in seven innings Sunday afternoon at Plainsman Park. The Tigers (18-13, 2-10 SEC) jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning, but the Volunteers (26-6, 7-5 SEC) scored in each of their next six at-bats to secure the series.
Auburn continues its eight-game homestand with a midweek matchup vs. Alabama State tomorrow at 6 p.m. CT at Plainsman Park.

Answer: 33,526 Auburn fans were in attendance at Saturday’s A-Day spring football game at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

"An abundance of joy," said Cam Coleman, the offensive MVP who led Auburn with 92 yards receiving on four catches, including a 49-yarder from Hank Brown in the first quarter for his first Pat Dye Field reception. "It was a great feeling. They're trusting me to win on the one-on-one balls and just go get it."
