SALT LAKE CITY – After a record top-10 finish last season, the No. 12 Kentucky Wildcats are set to open 2020 at No. 5 Utah on Friday at 8 p.m. ET, televised on Pac-12 Networks.
Kentucky returns 13 athletes from the year prior, including two-time 2019 Women’s Collegiate Gymnastics Association Regular Season All-American and All-Southeastern Conference performer Mollie Korth.
The 5-foot-2 senior from Cambridge, Wisconsin, earned a total of 20 victories across all five events as a junior, including eight wins on vault. Along with 2019 graduate Alex Hyland, Korth was one of two Wildcats named a WCGA All-American last season.
Kentucky’s crop of returning sophomores includes Miami native Cally Nixon, who was one of three Cats to participate as an individual competitor at the NCAA Championships last April. Josie Angeny, a fellow sophomore from Spring Hill, Tennessee, was named to the 2019 SEC All-Freshman team on beam.
