Alabama's non-revenue sports had a great week, with Track & Field star Remona Burchell leading the way with a record setting performance on Saturday.
Alabama picked up six total victories in a split-squad doubleheader versus Jackson State and Jacksonville State. The Tide took four 4-0 victories against Jackson State, and won two games versus Jacksonville State. The Crimson Tide re-enter SEC play with a match-up at Arkansas at 2 p.m. Thursday.
The Crimson Tide battled hard against South Carolina to pick up the 4-2 win. The Tide jumped out to a 3-1 lead, but South Carolina player Brigit Folland upset Maya Jansen to give Jansen her first loss of the season. Natalia Maynetto clinched the match with a 6-1, 7-5 win, Alabama's only win in straight sets on the day.
Swimming & Diving
The Swimming & Diving team rode their hot streak into Athens, Georgia and broke two school records. Mia Nonnenberg broke the 400 individual medley mark with a 4:09.03 to edge out Kate Shannon Gray's 2011 record. Emma Saunders broke her own school record with a 1:54.05 in the 200 backstroke.
The Crimson Tide ended their season on a sour note with a 80-73 loss to rival Auburn in a battle for last place in the SEC. Freshman Hannah Cook scored a career-high 24 points in the loss to the Tigers. Alabama held an advantage in field goal, 3-point and free throw percentage, but turned the ball over 24 times. Auburn turned those 24 turnovers into 30 points. The Tide head into the SEC tournament as the 14-seed and plays the to-be-determined 11-seed Wednesday in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Tom Lovelady finished fourth overall in individual play as the Crimson Tide earned a fifth place finish in team play at the 2015 John Hayt invitational. The Tide finished with a total score of 29-over par. Lovelady finished at 3-over 219, including a season best 2-under 70 on the opening day of the tournament.
