After taking the program to the NCAA Championships for the first time, head coach Tim Garrison and assistant coaches Chuck Dickerson and Rachel Garrison were named the 2018 National Association of College Gymnastics Coaches/Women National Coach and Assistant Coaches of the Year.
The awards are voted on by Division I coaches across the country. Both awards are the program’s first.
Kentucky finished the season ranked No. 12 in the nation after finishing with a 196.0625 at the NCAA Championships.
In a release, Garrison said, “I’m so grateful for my staff. They have given so much of themselves to this team and program and I could not be happier for them to be recognized by our National coaches group and receive the coach of the year award.”
