The team’s junior class led the way in California as Audrey Harrison set a career-high on uneven bars with a 9.9 to finish in a tie for first on the event. Kayla Hartley tied a career-high of 9.9 to win floor exercise.
 
Harrison’s bars title was the first of her career in the event, while she also ran her career tally of individual titles to eight. Hartley now has four career individual titles, all on beam.
 
Kayla Sienkowski and Hartley also had career-performances on bars as each picked up scores of 9.75.
 
Kentucky improved to 29-34 all-time against Auburn last week. The Wildcats have now won three-straight against the Tigers.
