The #16th ranked University of Louisville Men’s Soccer were on a 2 game losing streak so they needed to come out Sunday and put CSU Bakersfield away early to get some of their mojo back. They did the most logical thing one can think of when you have lost two in a row..be down 2-0 at halftime. That would change quick. After a quick 50 seconds into the second half, the Cards got loose after Ockford scored a goal and 13 minutes later Ivan Gutierrez evened the score at 2 with his first career goal. Scoring cooled down for awhile until Zack Foxhoven scored the game winner 85 minutes in and Marlon Hairston added an insurance goal 88:59 in by knocking one in from deep right side. The Cards go to Orlando for their Athletic Conference opener at UCF on Saturday at 7 p.m., ET.
The Cards lost a hard fought battle last night in Lexington as the Volleyball Cards went down 3-2 to the 17th ranked kentucky team. After winning the first game the Cards dropped 2 straight. They won the fourth and were down big in the fifth before coming back to take the lead but ultimately losing in game 5. Maya McClendon’s lead the team with 17 kills and 16 digs. The Cards are now at 2-4 and unranked

UofL’s own, Adam Hadwin is currently tied for 148 in the 113th U.S Open Championship.
Inclement weather yesterday lead to two delays in the first round of the U.S Open. Louisville’s Adam Hadwin’s tee time was delayed to 6:01pm, forcing him, along with many others, to finish the first round early this morning.
Hadwin got in five holes before officials called golfers in due to darkness at 8:15pm.
Through the first five, Hadwin was even par. He started out this morning making par on six before three straight bogeys to finish out the front nine, scoring 39, +3, on the front nine.
Hadwin started the back nine out with a bogey on 10 followed by two birdies on 11 and 12. The round went downhill from there. Hadwin bogeyed 13, 14 and 15, putting him at +7. On 16, Adam had a double bogey followed by two more bogeys on 17 and 18.
A rough start for Adam Hadwin in the first round. He shot 81 in the first round, +11.
As of right now, the projected cut going into the weekend is +4.
With the greens playing fast, Hadwin needs to take advantage of every shot today to avoid being cut before the weekend.

Gordon Gee comments:
The top goal of Big Ten presidents is to “make certain that we have institutions of like-minded academic integrity,” Gee said. “So you won’t see us adding Louisville,” which is also joining the ACC.
“I would say in that particular president’s case, it’s not unusual at all, to make statements, and then have to retract them later,” U of L president Dr. James Ramsey said. “I thank my lucky stars I’m not president of Ohio State and had some of the probation problems and some of the NCAA problems that they’ve had.”
““We understand this is not the first time President Gee has made statements he has regretted. We accept his apology. But we will go ahead and send information to his office that might improve his knowledge of the school which is, perhaps, experiencing the sharpest upward trajectory of its academic and athletic programs of any school in the country.”
Am I the only one that is kind of seeing President Ramsey in a Greek God role right now! Gosh I love this University. Oh and Gee also took shots at Uk………Which I’m ok with.
