Five new school records. Twelve podium finishes. A total of 1,124 points (most ever in program history).
All that and their first SEC Championship is what the Kentucky Women’s Swim & Dive team accomplished this weekend. While stars Riley Gaines and Lauren Poole shined in the spotlight, the entire team thrived over the weekend with a total of 39 personal bests throughout the meet.
Winning the SEC Championship is only achievable through a team effort and that’s what Kentucky brought to the table this weekend.
Head coach Lars Jorgensen gave credit not just to his team but the recent alumni and staff who put the program on track to secure their first SEC Championship.
“We’ve been building this over a few years now, and it’s about the people in front of us that helped build our program. The alumni from years past established it, our coaching staff, our administration. So many people had terrific effort this weekend, it was really fantastic. I couldn’t be more thrilled for our institution and for our girls. What a great moment.”
How about those Lady Wildcats!

Agree or disagree with the call last night?
What are your takeaways on the defense from this past season?
It’s not like he had much to work with through just 31 games.
HUGE day for the Lady Wildcats.
It’s hard to imagine Kershaw in any other uniform.
Where has this type of energy been all year?
Are NBA draft picks becoming overrated?
Bring it on!
The Masters without Tiger? No thanks.
