⛳️ Women’s top 25 finishers
🏀 Dillingham earns SEC honors
🔵 And much, much more!


🔼 Always Improving. The women’s golf team competed in the UCF Challenge and finished seventh, hitting 862 (-2). Three Cats had individual finishes in the top 25— Laney Frye (T18, -2), Cathryn Brown (T21, -1) and Jensen Castle (T21, -1). This marks the seventh straight tournament that Frye has led the team.

🔼 No. 4. Men’s basketball player Rob Dillingham is the fourth UK freshman to receive SEC Freshman of the Week honors this season. Dillingham averaged 27.5 points, four assists and 2.5 rebounds last week in the Cats’ games vs. Florida and Tennessee. He scored the fourth most points by a Kentucky freshman in the Tennessee game with a total of 35.

🔼 Hard Fought. The men’s basketball team lost 103-92 against Tennessee, but Rob Dillingham had a huge night. Dillingham scored a career-high 35 points.

🔼 Two Down. The women’s tennis team faced Columbia on Friday and Princeton on Sunday and fell to both teams.

🔼 So Close. The women’s basketball team faced Georgia on Sunday and lost 72-65. Saniah Tyler led the team with 18.
