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!
