SEC Honors Mosely, AU Women Receive Bid

Birmingham, Ala.--Auburn senior Jay Moseley has been named a first team All-SEC golfer, the conference announced on Monday.

Moseley, who is averaging a team-best 71.18 strokes per round, is on pace to have the second best single-season scoring average in AU history behind Buddy Gardner's 70.90 mark that has stood since 1976.

Moseley and the rest of the Tigers, who are ranked 16th nationally, won't know when they play next until May 5th when NCAA Tournament regional bids are announced.

Moseley, who has had three top-five finishes this season, is joined on the All-SEC team by Michael Thompson and Matthew Swan of Alabama, Florida's Billy Horschel, Georgia's Adam Mitchell and Hudson Swafford along with George Bryan IV and Mark Anderson of South Carolina.

"It's a tremendous honor to be named to this team with this prestige," Moseley said. "There are some really great players on this team and to be mentioned in that company is an honor. I am really proud of what I have done this year. It has been awesome and a lot of fun."

Auburn coach Mike Griffin said, "I am very proud of Jay. He deserves to be named to the first team. I am thankful to the coaches in the SEC for their vote for him. I feel that he has had a SEC first-team type year. I am happy for him and hope he builds on it in the tournaments we have coming up."

The AU women's team, which is ranked 10th, received news on Monday about its NCAA regional bid. The Tigers will compete at the NCAA East Regional May 8-10 at the University of Georgia Golf Course.

The field in Athens will include six Top 20 teams including No. 2 Duke, No. 4 Floirda and No. 8 Georgia. The Tigers are 39-18-1 this season in head to head matchups with the six Top 20 teams that will be competing in the regional.
