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!
*The volleyball team (11-7, 3-3) swept Notre Dame on Sunday at the KFC Yum! Center 25-14, 25-19, 25-13. The Cards hit the road this weekend to face Syracuse on Friday and NC State on Sunday.
*The men’s soccer team (6-5-1) beat Florida Gulf Coast 2-1 on Tuesday night at Lynn Stadium. The Cards had lost four matches in a row, so it’s good to finally get back to winning. The next 4 matches will be at home, and the next one will be big as #2 Syracuse comes to town on Friday night at 7:30 pm ET.
*The women’s soccer team (5-6-2) will host Northern Kentucky on Wednesday night at 7:00 at Lynn Stadium. The Cards are 2-2-2 in the ACC and are in 8th place in the conference.
