Friday was Auburn's final home meet of the season; seniors Toi Garcia and Petrina Yokay, along with their families, were honored in ceremonies before the competition.
"I was very really pleased how Petrina and Toi finished off their careers here at Auburn Arena," Auburn head coach Jeff Graba said. "There's always a lot of emotion involved in Senior Night, but they finished here really well.
"Obviously, for us it's not the end of the road, and I do feel the team did a pretty good job of it. Overall, it wasn't an overly sharp night, but we did a good job and now we get to move on to the next step, which is getting on the road for a number of weeks."
