The University of Kentucky Athletics Association will present honors at the eighth-annual CATSPY Awards, to be held tonight at Memorial Coliseum to recognize athletic and academic performance during the 2009-10 year. The awards ceremony begins at 7:30 p.m., with doors opening at 7:00 p.m., and the public is invited. Tickets cost $5 each and may be purchased in advance at the UK Athletics Ticket Office (Joe Craft Center) or by calling 800-928-2287. All persons must have a ticket to enter, regardless of age. All general public will enter through the Lexington Avenue entrance of Memorial Coliseum. Jodie Meeks won the Male Performance of the Year Award last year for his school-record 54-point performance at Tennessee. The CATSPY Awards were introduced at UK in 2003, when athletics director Mitch Barnhart shared his desire to celebrate and honor the academic, athletic and community excellence achieved by all UK student-athletes. It was emulated from the well-known ESPY Awards. This annual event has become the highlight and finale of each academic year and features student-athletes from all 22 sports.
