Gymnastics Prepares for Road Contest in Tuscaloosa

LEXINGTON, Ky. – No. 3 Kentucky gymnastics (4-2, 2-1 SEC) returns to the road tomorrow at No. 6 Alabama (5-0-1, 2-0-1 SEC) for an 8:30 p.m. EST Friday Night Heights matchup at Coleman Coliseum.

The Wildcats are coming off their first home meet of the 2024 meet slate which was proven to be a record-breaking night. UK set a new all-time overall score record defeating No. 21 Georgia 197.950-195.650. Two Kentucky gymnasts, Makenzie Wilson and Raena Worley, earned a 10.000 from the judges for the first time since Jenny Hansen’s last year as a Cat (1996). Wilson’s perfect score was the first ever recorded in Rupp Arena at Central Bank Center.

The Crimson Tide enters Friday’s contest following a road victory against No. 8 Florida, 197.575-197.425.

Kentucky last competed in Tuscaloosa in the 2022 season where the Cats were overcome by the Crimson Tide, 197.650 – 196.275. However, last season in Lexington, the Cats set a new program record against Alabama with a 197.825-197.375 victory.
