Hey everyone, Higgy is back! Join me as we spotlight three University of Louisville student-athletes each week. These student-athletes can be from any of our athletic programs we have at the university. Here are my student athletes from the week of August 29th.
Erica Cooper – Sr. – Field Hockey
Erica is a senior from Louisville and attended Assumption High School. The #5 Cardinals field hockey team started the season on Friday vs the Ohio Bobcats and won! She scored two goals during the game to help the Cardinals clench the win over the Bobcats. Erica has helped the Cards to shutout victories in their first two games of the season. This hometown Cardinal is someone to keep an eye one if you get a chance to come and watch the #5 field hockey team as they look to gain their first ACC title.
Back to back for Erica.#GoCards pic.twitter.com/HdkehyNaRH

Nina Nicosia – Freshman – Women’s Soccer
Nina and her teammates opened the women’s soccer season this week by defeating Western Michigan and James Madison. Nina scored 2 goals in the James Madison game to take the early season team lead in goals along with becoming the elite defender this season. She seems to be leading the charge to replace Emina Ekic along with Emma Hiscock and Julia Simon. Nina and the Lady Cards play two games this week against Northern Kentucky and St. Louis.
