Bodda Getta Daily Brew 6/6: Softball's Terrific Two-fer

The highly accomplished Chris + Kate Malveaux have been named Auburn Softball co-head coaches

Good Morning, Auburn Family. Chris and Kate Malveaux (mal-VO) have been named Auburn Softball co-head coaches. Both come to Auburn after serving as assistant coaches at the University of Tennessee, where they helped the Lady Volunteer program to back-to-back Southeastern Conference regular season titles in 2023 and 2024 and a Women's College World Series appearance last year.

The two helped Tennessee to 136 wins over the last three seasons. This past season, Tennessee not only won the SEC regular-season title but also posted a 44-12 overall record and made an NCAA Super Regional appearance.

🔼 Quite the Milestone. Sharpshooter Miles Kelly completes Auburn men's basketball's roster for the 2024-25 season. The 6-foot-6, 180-pound guard is a transfer from Georgia Tech.
During his three-year career with the Yellow Jackets, Kelly played in 95 games with 60 starts. He averaged 11.1 points per game, connecting on 35 percent of his 3-point shots and 78.6 percent of his free throws. This past season, Kelly topped the 1,000-career point mark versus Clemson. His 184 career 3-pointers rank ninth most in program history.

🔼 All Ifs, Ands or Butlers. Auburn men's golf senior J.M. Butler was named to PING's team of Honorable Mention All-Americans Wednesday. A senior season that saw two individual wins, five top-10 finishes, 16 subpar rounds and a 4-1-2 match play record, including the title-clinching point in Auburn's first NCAA Championship, earned Butler a spot on the final All-American list.
It is the third straight season Butler has been recognized by PING and the second straight as an honorable mention selection. He joins teammates Jackson Koivun and Brendan Valdes, who were previously named to the first team.

🔼 Life’s a Sprint. The first day of the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships was a success for the Auburn men's program as the 4x100m relay along with true freshman 110m hurdler Ja'Kobe Tharp advanced to Friday's finals with the top qualifying times in their respective events. The Tigers also advanced three sprinters to finals in the 100m and 200m.
The quartet of sophomore Azeemi Fahmi, freshman Kanynsola Ajayi, and sophomores Dario Matau and Makanakishe Charamba ran the fastest qualifying time of 38.38 with clean passes through the three exchange zones to record the second-fastest time in school history.
Auburn will race in the finals Friday at 8:02 p.m. CT/6:02 p.m. PT with hopes of bringing home the program's first national championship in the event. The Tigers last qualified for the 4x100m finals in 2017, finishing runners-up that year as well as in 1978 and 1979.
Competing today for the Auburn women include Alyssa Quinones-Mixon in the pole vault, Shaniya Holley in the javelin, Vimbayi Maisvorewa in the 400m and Megan Hague in the shot put.
