It’s been a while, so let’s get caught up on how all of the “other” sports are doing at UofL. A lot of good teams to keep up with!
*The lacrosse team invites everyone to a banquet on Friday night at 7:00 in the PNC Club at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium to celebrate their 2014 season. The Cards finished the season ranked 11th in the country, set a program record for wins with 16, and won the Big East regular season and conference tournaments.
*The 7th ranked field hockey team (10-2, 3-1) lost 3-1 to Syracuse on Saturday. The Orange are now ranked 10th in the country. Louisville returns home to face 17th ranked Boston College on Friday at 3:00 pm ET at Trager Stadium. The game will be shown on ESPN3 and Fox Sports South. The field hockey team could be the best kept secret on Floyd Street!
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. There are plenty of other teams having success, so it is nice to keep up with them. You don’t have to be die hard and follow them as closely if you don’t choose to, but this gives you options. 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.
In this Cardinal Catch Up, the Cards pick up wins over Kentucky and a #1 team in the country. Not too bad!
*The 11th ranked field hockey team (7-1) is off to a great start this season. On Saturday, they took down the #1 team in the nation, North Carolina, 3-2 at Trager Stadium. Senior Mallory Mason was named ACC Co-Player of the Week. On Tuesday they defeated Ohio State 6-3 to extend their home winning streak to 14 games. They will be back in action this Friday as they take on #16 Wake Forest on the road in a big ACC matchup.
As always around this time of year, it is a very busy weekend in UofL athletics. The highlight of the weekend will be Saturday evening when the Louisville football team takes on the Murray State Racers. That game is at 7:00 pm ET at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. Here in the Cardinal Catch Up, we focus on the “other” sports not named football or men’s basketball. It is a great one-stop shop to keep you informed on how the other teams at UofL are doing, and what they have coming up.
*The #24 ranked volleyball team (1-1) has a very busy weekend as they are hosting the Active Ankle Challenge in Cardinal Arena. They will host Tennessee State at 10:00 a.m. ET on Friday morning, and also face Cincinnati at 7:30 pm ET Friday evening. On Saturday, they will face Appalachian State at 11:00 a.m. ET, also in Cardinal Arena.
