UK remains undefeated at home in win over Auburn

Lexington, KY

Fridays meet against no.9 Auburn was postponed to Saturday afternoon due to weather concerns in the Lexington area, but that didn’t stop the Wildcats from coming out and putting up a big score to finish out the regular season undefeated at Memorial Coliseum. This would be the last home meet before renovations begin on the venue and wrap up in 2024.

The Cats put up an impressive 197.675 against the Tigers 196.450. Starting right out of the gate with multiple 9.9+ scores including Makenzie Wilsons 9.975. The lead continued to build over on bars with all scores being a 9.825 or better. Moving over to beam saw Isabella Magnelli put up a 9.950 to capture the high mark for the apparatus. The Cats would then put up several exhibitions on beam and floor, showcasing the seniors who aren’t in regular rotation. The floor exercise saw a pair of Cats share the honors, with both Hailey Davis and Raena Worley setting 9.950s.

Auburn sophomore and Olympic all-around gold medalist Suni Lee ran through warmups on the uneven bars, but ultimately did not compete in the meet due to load management as they rested her before their meet against Penn State this week.
