Volleyball

“It’s a tough schedule with more than half of our matches against programs that advanced to the NCAA tournament last year. We begin the season with one of the toughest non-conference schedules in the country and then head in to a highly competitive ACC conference,” said head coach Anne Kordes.

In the Cardinal Catch Up, I bring you up to date on how the “other” sports at UofL are doing. You know, the ones not named football or men’s basketball.

You can just check out scores and records, or click on press releases to read more details. Check out how your teams at the University of Louisville are doing so far this fall.

The fall sports season has now begun, and the teams at UofL are getting off to a great start. Surely, you are aware that the football team beat Miami 31-13 on Monday night.

Starting this season, I am going to start bringing you the Cardinal Catch Up, which will update you on all of the “other” sports at UofL. We know that basketball and football get most of the attention, and for good reason of course. But this will let you know how the other teams are doing. I won’t write full stories on those sports, but will link the official press releases from UofL for the most part. I will at least tell you scores and records, just so you can stay informed on how the other teams are performing.

For example, you may not necessarily care about all of the details of a soccer or field hockey game, but you are interested to know how the teams are doing. This post will do that, just keeping it simple. And you will be provided with the press releases in case you do want the details of games and teams. It will be like a one-stop shop to find out how the rest of the teams at UofL are doing. Hope you enjoy!

Volleyball drops first set, then dominates Rutgers

Volleyball

If there was a team at the University of Louisville that entered this season with a lot of hype, it was the volleyball team. But after a rough start (2-6), some fans may have forgotten just how talented this team is, not to mention how tough of an early season schedule they played. If you haven’t taken notice lately, the Cards are on fire. They have won 11 of their last 12 matches, with 6 of those being 3-0 sweeps! Playing in their 4th match of a 7-game road trip, the Cards dismantled Rutgers 23-25, 25-10, 25-17, 25-20.

Emily Juhl had 21 kills and hit .528 with 2 blocks. Maya McClendon added a double-double with 12 kills and 13 digs.

UofL Volleyball Sweeps NDSU 3-0

**Press Release**

Emily Juhl and Janelle Jenkins each had 13 kills to lead the No. 17-ranked  University of Louisville Cardinals to a 25-23, 25-17, 25-11 sweep of host North Dakota State in the first match of the Fargo Doublewood Inn Classic.

“We got thrown for a bit of a loop early one with the heat in the gym,” said U of L head coach Anne Kordes. “ I thought we did a good job of composing ourselves  and powered through it.  Our middles were steady and that really opened up the outside hitters because their blockers could not ignore the middle.”

Two more Cards teams begin their seasons ranked in Top 25!

Cardinal Bird

I believe that technically the “Year of the Cardinal” has closed its chapter, and now we are moving on to possibly Year 2 of that. If of course when we say “Year”, we are referring to the Sports calender, which is what I go by. So to me, we are now entering into the 2nd year of what could be the “Decade of the Cardinal” when it’s all said and done. But I digress…

Volleyball commits can make it a big deal too!

By Justin Renck:

We always see the big time football and basketball recruits make a big deal about where they are going to college. They even get on TV just to choose where they commit to, and some may not even sign there eventually! So why can’t a volleyball recruit do the same?

Well, that is what Eleni Georgiafandis (from TN) decided to do. If a TV station wasn’t coming to her, she would just make her own video! She is class of 2014.

Volleyball: Cards win Big East Tournament!

On Sunday afternoon, the UofL Volleyball team did something that no other Big East team has done since 2007 (St. John’s). They won both the Big East regular season and the Big East Tournament Championship! They swept Marquette, who was the host school, with scores of 25-19, 25-23, and 26-24. They improved their overall season record to an amazing 28-3!

Volleyball: Cards play in Big East Championship today!

By Justin Renck:

The Louisville Cardinals continued their amazing season today when they swept Cincinnati for the 2nd time in a week. They improved their record to 27-3, 15-1 in the Big East! In the match, junior Caitlin Welch set the single season digs record at UofL! She already has the all-time record at UofL, which she set in the last match with Cincinnati! And senior Gwen Rucker had a big match with 15 kills!

On Sunday, the Cards will attempt to win the Big East Tournament Championship when they take on host school Marquette at 2 pm ET. The game will be shown on ESPNU. This will be the Cards’ 7th appearance in the Big East Championship in only 8 seasons in the Big East.

The Cards have now won 11 matches in a row, and this was their 7th straight sweep! On November 9, the Cards swept Marquette at Cardinal Arena. Let’s hope for a similar result here! Go Cards!

Volleyball: Cards win awards at Big East Banquet

By Justin Renck:

It has been a tremendous year for the UofL Volleyball team to this point. They won the Big East regular season title, and are now attempting to win the Big East Tournament and hopefully make a big NCAA Tournament run. You don’t have that kind of success without great players and a great coach, and those things were recognized at the Big East Banquet in Milwaukee, Wisconsin prior to the tournament starting.
