Steve Wilson wins Auburn's Walter Gilbert Award

AUBURN, Ala. | Fifty years after his last game at Jordan-Hare Stadium, Steve Wilson returned to the Plains, surrounded by his teammates from Auburn's famed 1972 Amazins.

"Does my body feel like it's been 50 years? Yes," he said. "My roommates? That's like yesterday. That part never changes, my best friends."

Flanked by Mike Neel, Bill Newton, and Bobby Davis, his fellow linebackers on one of Shug Jordan's favorite Auburn teams, Wilson received the Walter Gilbert Award on Homecoming before the Tigers played Missouri.

"We had a whole team in '72 like us," Wilson said. "I feel like I'm representing the Amazins, particularly the linebackers. I was fortunate to be here at an outstanding time. We were in the top 10 or top five every year."

Auburn annually presents the Walter Gilbert Award to a former student-athlete for achievements after graduation.

LSU's MacNeil Named SEC Female Swimmer of the Week

BATON ROUGE, La. | Maggie MacNeil garnered her first Southeastern Conference accolade Tuesday after being named the SEC Female Swimmer of the Week by the league office for her performance in a tri-meet against Vanderbilt and Tulane at the LSU Natatorium. 

“This is a wonderful honor for Maggie after breaking two school records and throwing down NCAA ‘B’ cut times,” head swimming coach Rick Bishop said. “We are very excited to have Maggie’s extensive experience, as we continue to elevate the standard of LSU swimming and diving moving forward. This recognition signifies LSU’s continuous pursuit of excellence in everything we do, in or out of the pool.”

MacNeil, a product of London, Ontario, Canada, opened her LSU career with three victories, two of which were individual. Holding multiple records throughout the landscape of collegiate and international swimming, MacNeil took down two more, this time etching her name in the LSU record book.

Competing in the 100-yard back and 100-yard free, MacNeil threw down a 51.10 in the backstroke event, which broke Caley Oquist’s previously held record of 52.67. In the 100-free, she touched the wall first with a time of 47.43, breaking Amanda Kendall’s school record of 47.90. Both recorded times qualified MacNeil for the NCAA “B” cut in each event.
