Kentucky vs Ball State

4:18 PM

The University of Kentucky is opening their season at home at Memorial Coliseum with their Excite Night meet against the Ball State University. Kentucky Freshmen Katie Stuart, Aubree Rosa, Sidney Dukes, Danaea Davis and Alex Hyland opened their collegiate careers with solid Vaults whilst on a low scoring Uneven Bars rotation Ball State Senior Angela Durkac was the top performer. Stuart rocked on the Uneven Bars, whilst it was a fantastic start to Katrina Coca's collegiate career - Coca who originally signed for 2016-17 commenced a year earlier. Ball State Senior Erin Patchey and Sophomore Jordyn Penny were the top performers for their team on the Vault, however the top score on the apparatus was shared by Stuart and Dukes. On the Uneven Bars, Dukes took the title over team mates Stuart and Sophomore Cori Rachenmacher who tied for second. Congratulations to Ball State Freshman Sidney Finke who opened her career with a 9.500 on the Floor Exercise. It seems the curse of the Balance Beam has hit the University of Kentucky with Aubree Rosa scoring an 8.975 and Katie Stuart scoring a 9.000. After a low scoring start on the Floor Exercise - the Ball State lineup finished strongly as too did Kentucky on the Balance Beam. Ball State Freshman Kaitlyn Menzione competed with a solid routine on the Balance Beam. Alex Hyland took out the Balance Beam title, whilst Taylor Puryear earned the honors on the Floor Exercise.
