Cats Look to Carry Momentum Into Road Tilt at No. 7 Georgia
ATHENS, Ga. – After scoring 196.000 or better in each of its last three meets, No. 13 Kentucky looks to carry season-high momentum into another colossal Southeastern Conference road meet at No. 7 Georgia on Friday at 7 p.m. ET, televised live on the SEC Network.
The Wildcats enter Friday on the heels of the second-best performance in school history by way of a 197.150-196.025 defeat of No. 5 LSU last week. Kentucky tallied at least 49.200 on each event for only the second time, as well, emerging victorious in each event for the first time since a sweep of Texas Woman’s to open the season.
Junior Mollie Korth earned the 15th win of her career on both vault (9.925) and all-around (39.600) against the Tigers, while also setting a new career high of 9.900 on beam. Senior Alex Hyland tied a career-high mark on bars with a 9.000, earning her the third bars victory of her illustrious career, and tied a career high on floor (9.900). Fellow senior Sidney Dukes won on beam for the 10th time via a season-high 9.925.
Kentucky is seeking its first win over the Bulldogs in school history.
