This may have been the last weekend without a home event for quite a while, but there was still plenty going on around UK sports. Here are a few notes to get your Monday morning going.
- Women's soccer kicked off the season in Kentucky sports with a 3-0 win over Oakland on the road. Four freshmen started for the Wildcats, including midfielder Molly Huber, who registered a goal and an assist. The Wildcat defense was in top gear, holding Oakland to just two shots. Goalkeeper Kayla Price became the first goalkeeper in school history to post a season-opening shutout, stopping one shot on goal.
- After losing in the quarterfinals of the World University Games, Darius Miller and Team USA got back on the winning track, defeating Romania and Germany on Sunday and Monday to earn fifth place. Against Romania, Miller had seven points and three rebounds and three points and two assists in an 86-83 comeback victory over Germany to clinch fifth place.
- Just a week and a half away from the start of football season on Thursday Sept. 1, UK students can buy season tickets today at the UK Athletics ticket office. Additionally, Metz Camfield and I will be bringing you an exclusive series of positional previews beginning tomorrow. Keep an eye out for those, because I think you will enjoy them.
- Former UK golfer and current PGA Tour professional JB Holmes will undergo "non-invasive" brain surgery early next week. Holmes began to experience symptoms in May and dropped out of the PGA Championship last weekend after an opening round of 80. The condition and surgery are reportedly not life-threatening, but our thoughts are with Holmes nonetheless. Here's hoping that he makes a quick recovery and is back on the golf course soon.
