There is literally never a dull moment or a “slow time” in the world of UofL sports. Sure, basketball and football are off right now, but baseball is having an incredible season. And now, three fall sports have released their schedules for the 2015 season.
“It’s a tough schedule with more than half of our matches against programs that advanced to the NCAA tournament last year. We begin the season with one of the toughest non-conference schedules in the country and then head in to a highly competitive ACC conference,” said head coach Anne Kordes.
University of Louisville volleyball player Katie George has earned all kinds of accolades on the court. She has made All East Region, was on the All-Tournament team for the USA National Collegiate Team, All-Conference First Team, and more. Basically, she is a heck of a volleyball player.
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.

There are plenty of other teams having success, so it is nice to keep up with them. You don’t have to be die hard and follow them as closely if you don’t choose to, but this gives you options. You can just check out scores and records, or click on press releases to read more details. Check out how your teams at the University of Louisville are doing so far this fall.

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!
If there was a team at the University of Louisville that entered this season with a lot of hype, it was the volleyball team. But after a rough start (2-6), some fans may have forgotten just how talented this team is, not to mention how tough of an early season schedule they played. If you haven’t taken notice lately, the Cards are on fire. They have won 11 of their last 12 matches, with 6 of those being 3-0 sweeps! Playing in their 4th match of a 7-game road trip, the Cards dismantled Rutgers 23-25, 25-10, 25-17, 25-20.
Emily Juhl had 21 kills and hit .528 with 2 blocks. Maya McClendon added a double-double with 12 kills and 13 digs.
Emily Juhl and Janelle Jenkins each had 13 kills to lead the No. 17-ranked University of Louisville Cardinals to a 25-23, 25-17, 25-11 sweep of host North Dakota State in the first match of the Fargo Doublewood Inn Classic.
“We got thrown for a bit of a loop early one with the heat in the gym,” said U of L head coach Anne Kordes. “ I thought we did a good job of composing ourselves and powered through it. Our middles were steady and that really opened up the outside hitters because their blockers could not ignore the middle.”
