In the Excite Night at the Kentucky Classic, the UK Gymnasts showed the fans in attendance something to get excited about. After dominating the 9th ranked Hogs the whole meet, the Cats came out victorious 195.500-193.075.
After a quick serenade from the acoUstiKats during athlete introductions, the Cats got down to business on the vault, with Holly Cunningham earning the top score on the event with 9.825. From vault, the girls took their domination to the bars with Audrey Harrison earning a nearly perfect score at 9.90 as well as the highest score of the meet on floor with 9.850. Senior Shannon Mitchell and Freshman Marissa Beucler took the highest scores for the Cats on the balance beam tonight, a tie of 9.825.
Audrey Harrison, a Junior from Knoxville, Tn. was spectacular in all four events, earning the all-around title with a score of 39.275.
Tonight is a prime example of why the Cats are a contender this year in NCAA gymnastics. With almost flawless routines, the Cats are on their way to perfection and a prime spot in the SEC. As I’ve said before; If you haven’t been watching these high-flying Cats this season, I would suggest doing so now. You don’t want to miss out on any of the exciting action they are sure to bring this season.
The Cats travel to Tuscaloosa for a matchup with currently 6th ranked Alabama Friday at 8:30 est.
Go Cats! @JC_KSR
