This season has been about reaching new heights and setting records for the University of Louisville Volleyball team. The victory over Duke on Halloween matched the longest winning streak to start a season in program history (21-0). The Cards have tracked on two more since bringing them to 23-0 overall. As a result of the undefeated start, the squad has gradually moved up in the AVCA Coaches’ Poll. After sitting behind Texas for a couple weeks, the Cardinals have finally moved up to #1, following the Longhorns’ loss to Baylor over the weekend.
