The Louisville Cardinals return to the court this evening to take on the Hartford Hawks, who hail from West Hartford, Connecticut and will bring their 1-1 record into the KFC Yum! Center.

Louisville Volleyball Surges!

Louisville Volleyball
Current Record
Overall 21-5
Pct .808
Conf 15-1
Pct .938
Streak W5
Home 11-2
Away 8-3
Neutral 2-0
The University of Louisville Volleyball team is surging after a slow start that included a 2-3 start with losses against 3 top 25 teams. They also went against UL vs Auburn in Football versus Wisconsin and Minnesota in the ACC/Big 10 challenge right here at the YUM! They then went on winning streaks of 4,10 & are currently on a 5 game winning streak.
Their 5 losses came to #18 Illinois (3-0), #3 Minnesota (3-2), #10 Wisconsin (3-1), #19 uk (3-1) & #20 UNC (3-1). They are on a great roll heading towards the go home portion of their schedule which includes 2 at home this weekend vs Clemson and Georgia Tech. As an avid UofL Volleyball fan I am glad to see the girls overcome the early adversity and surge at the right time. Today Molly Sauer was named Freshman of the week in the ACC for the 2nd time and Tess Clark was named ACC Player of the Week also. The new polls came out today with UofL jumping up all the way to #17 from #22 in the USA Today/AVCA Coaches Poll! They jumped up to #11 in the D1 Volleyball poll.
