This afternoon, UK announced that the 13th annual CATSPY Awards will take place Monday night at 7:30 p.m. in Memorial Coliseum. The awards show–a spin-off of the ESPYs–always features funny skits from the student athletes and a chance to see our favorite Cats again, this time in
formal semi-formal wear.
Want to go? The public is invited. Here’s the info from UK:
Tickets cost $5 each and may be purchased at the UK Athletics Ticket Office (Joe Craft Center) or by calling 800.928.2287. All general public will enter through the Lexington Avenue entrance of Memorial Coliseum. Public parking will be available in the E lot on the west side (Lexington Avenue) of the Joe Craft Center. Additional parking will be available in parking structure No. 5, located near Kennedy’s Book Store. Also, a free shuttle will be available between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. with pick-up at the Alumni Drive sky bridge and drop-off at the Wildcat Alumni Plaza.
