They did it in convincing fashion not once, but twice. Even better? The Wildcats picked up two dominating victories at home on senior day over the No. 14 Auburn Tigers: the final scores were 7-0 then 7-3. Seniors Katie Reed, Abbey Cheek, Jenny Schaper, Kelsee Henson and Sarah Rainwater were honored before the start of game one.
Thanks to Saturday’s rain storms in Lexington, the Cats and the Tigers played a doubleheader Sunday afternoon. Although daunting, the back-to-back action clearly did not affect Kentucky. They won by a combined score of 14-3.
The win over Auburn completed the senior Cats’ conference sweep – during their time in the blue-and-white, they’ve now beaten every team in the SEC at least once. Auburn was the last team left on their list. Before Sunday night, Kentucky’s last win in the series dates back to March 4, 2012.
