uk gymnastics1 300LEXINGTON, Ky. - The University of Kentucky gymnastics team will appear on five na-tionally televised broadcasts during the 2014 season, the Southeastern Conference announced Wednesday.

"We face tough competition throughout our SEC schedule and I'm happy to see that it will be showcased on TV numerous times this season," UK head coach Tim Garrison said. "Our student-athletes work hard and this exposure will give them the opportu-nity to represent their university on the big stage."

A total of 21 SEC gymnastics meets will be broadcast in addition to the SEC Cham-pionship, all on a delayed basis.

The SEC Championship on March 22 will air on ESPNU on March 27 at 5:30 p.m. ET and again on ESPN2 at 11 a.m. on March 29.

UK's contest at Georgia on Jan. 31 will air on Fox Sports Net on February 7. Flori-da, the defending NCAA and SEC Champions, come to Lexington on Feb. 7, which will be broadcast by FSN on Feb. 15. Kentucky's meet at Arkansas on Feb. 21 will also air on FSN, on March 1. The times for all eight of FSN's SEC gymnastics broadcasts will be announced at a later date.

The Wildcats will appear on CSS (Comcast/Charter Sports Southeast) once. Jan. 18's tri-meet, against Alabama and Nebraska in Knoxville, Tenn., will be broadcast on Jan. 24, with a time to be announced.

The Wildcats, who finished 21st in the national rankings last season, return 14 gymnasts from the 2013 squad that posted the program's highest-ever NCAA Regional team score of 195.575. UK earned a Regional b.i.d. with a school-record regional qualifying score of 196.06 and notched three wins against SEC opponents, the most in program history.

The team holds its annual Blue/White Intrasquad meet on Dec. 10 in Memorial Coli-seum, which begins at 6 p.m. and is free to the public.
