The Kentucky Athletic program has been brought to new heights under Mitch Barnhart.
We’ve seen nearly every sport have some success with their program over the last few years, and many players have gone on to have great professional careers.
People like Sydney McLaughlin, Rhyne Howard, Josh Allen, and more are just a few examples of success across sports not named basketball.
Well, it’s time to add another name to that list: Levi Sandidge. From Kentucky Athletics:
“Kentucky sophomore Levi Sandidge was one of 94 athletes named to the 2023-24 U.S. National Team by USA Swimming on Tuesday, the first Kentucky male swimmer ever to be picked to a U.S. National Team roster.”
Sandidge had one of the most successful freshman campaigns ever, winning the SEC Championship in the 1650 freestyle, the first Kentucky male swimmer to win gold at the event since 2006, and was named to the All-SEC First Team.
At the NCAA Championships, Sandidge placed sixth in the 1650 free, the highest finish by a Kentucky men’s swimmer at NCAAs since 2012.
