Kentucky Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart has received another national honor for overseeing one of the most successful athletics department there is.

On Wednesday, Barnhart was voted one of four Under Armour Athletic Directors of the Year by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics. Barnhart was honored along with Chris Del Conte of TCU, Warde Manuel of Connecticut and Ian McCaw of Baylor. In the 2013-14 school year, UK finished 11th in NACDA Directors' Cup standings, meeting Barnhart's goal to make UK a top-15 athletics department nationally.

While it's basketball that gets the main attention, Kentucky has become one of the most well-rounded schools when it comes to success across all sports. Congratulations to Barnhart on the honor.

The offseason struggle is real...
