Auburn shortstop Haley Fagan publicly addressed the on and off-the-field incidents she’s been at the center of during the past two months for the first time on Saturday.
Fagan’s postgame pushing exchange with Florida coach Tim Walton on March 27, for which he apologized and she was not disciplined, drew national attention.
Less than a month later, Fagan was one of three Auburn softball players arrested on misdemeanor marijuana-related charges on April 20. The results of Fagan’s drug test administered by Auburn were later released and showed she tested negative for all drugs other than alcohol.
“I have my teammates behind me, I have coach behind me so that’s really all I can ask for,” Fagan said following Auburn’s 6-0 loss to LSU in the SEC Tournament semifinals. “Yeah, it has been rough, but if I have them behind me then that’s all I need right now.”
Asked to explain the exchange with Walton and her reaction to the attention it garnered, Fagan declined to elaborate.
“I just want to focus on softball,” she said.
