Our beloved weekend editor Maria Taustine just watched Pitch Perfect and loved the movie. So, the Saturday Night News and Views is brought to you by movie star Anna Kendrick. Thanks for all the hard work you do, Maria.
UK Women’s Track has a Big Saturday
It was a great Saturday for the UK women’s track team as Dezerea Bryant won the 200m NCAA Championship in Eugene, Oregon. Bryant ran a 22.18 second race, the third fastest time in the world this year. Cats everywhere. Again, another big congrats to Dezerea!
Another national champion was Kendra Harrison to win the 100m hurdles. It was an impressive day for the UK women’s track team.
The Champ is Here
American Pharoah was at Chruchill Downs for a parade today. While there was some great races today, including the Stephen Foster Handicap going on, the star of the show was the most recent Triple Crown winner. American Pharoah is a big fan of crowds and played the part in Louisville tonight.
Kash Daniel Visited South Carolina
Kash Daniel, a massive instate recruit Kentucky is trying to keep, went and visited South Carolina today. Hopefully the visit was accompanied by a shirtless Steve Spurrier to scare Daniel away from Columbia. Seriously, come on down to Lexington, you won’t regret it.
Tai Wynyard is Going to be a Fan Favorite
Just watch that video and then go back and look at his block in the FIBA U18 3×3 Tournament last week. Wynyard is going to be a star for the Wildcats whenever he decides to enroll. He’s becoming more athletic with each passing week and makes a better play with each YouTube video. This time he posterized Gonzaga commit Zach Collins, who is 6’10” during a scrimmage in Colorado.
We’ll be back at it tomorrow morning with more news. In the meantime continue to pray for Drew Franklin in NYC.
