The Kentucky gymnastics team had a pretty busy weekend, starting with their annual “Excite Night” and ending with an SEC upset over Arkansas. The No. 16 Wildcats defeated the No. 14 Razorbacks. Attendance for the night set a school record: 12,472 fans made their way to Rupp Arena.
“That environment was unreal,” said head coach Tim Garrison. “We are truly blessed to be here. … There is an appetite for gymnastics in this town and it’s obvious after tonight.”
Check out the highlights from Excite Night:
