Kelsi Worrell will go down as the most dominant swimmer in Louisville history. I have no doubt about that. After winning 2 NCAA National Championships last year, she repeated that feat this year winning the 200 and 100 fly at the NCAA Championships.

Kelsi Worrell picked up her second NCAA Championship with a win in the 200-fly to lead the University of Louisville women’s swimming and diving team to an eighth place finish at the 2016 NCAA Championships Saturday night at the McAuley Aquatic Center on the campus of Georgia Tech. 

 She is going to next prepare for the French Elite Nationals which are preliminary meets for the Olympics according to swimswam.com. That will be awesome for all of us to get behind her and cheer our cardinal to the gold! Below are excerpts from some of the press releases I received this weekend. Enjoy!

This Week In Cardinal Athletics (TWICA)

55 season 3

One staple of my podcast, Live With 55, is a segment I call This Week In Cardinal Athletics or TWICA for short. Since LW55 will not air this week due to the Men’s Basketball game at Pitt, I felt compelled to let you know what we have in store for you this week. The fine people at the University of Louisville helped me out today by putting the games into graphics that are awesome. So whenever you need to look at the schedule bookmark this for the week! Without further adieu, Here is This Week In Cardinal Athletics, or TWICA!

(Spoiler-You won’t hear the music playing but I hear it)

(PS-If you don’t get the joke listen to LiveWith55 Wednesday nights at 730 at blogtalkradio.com/csz)

55 (Season 2 Episode 4)

55

 

This week on 55………

We have new uni’s to talk about again for the second straight week, these as hated as last weeks were loved. We have a triumphs and let downs. We will talk about Teddys first start in the NFL. The victory over Wake and the smothering defense. The new Louisville Slugger Gerod Holliman and much more. So sit down, buckle up and enjoy the ride. These are the 55 most intriguing,ridiculous or down right best or worst things I have heard this week. This…is….55

2) Well there’s an image for you and an overall description for what our defense did on Saturday. We knocked out Wake. giving up -22 yards rushing to go along with 8 sacks and 4 INT’s, our defense kept us in the game and won the game as far as I am concerned. Holliman, Burgess and Rankins recorded Interceptions. Lozo got 3 of the 8 sacks. On offense the rookie QB looked shaky at times but when he started feeding the beast Brandon Radcliff (130 yds 2 TD) , he seemed to run the offense more fluently. Moving forward we have to take care of the ball better. 4 fumbles vs Wake is unacceptable but I think that will improve with reps for Reggie. Also stop the penalties now please….signed all of Football. The Cards take on Syracuse at the Carrier Dome Friday night.

4) They started calling Calvin Pryor that this pre season, maybe it will catch on for Gerod. Once only known for his earth shattering hit, Holliman has come full circle. With his 6th INT of the season Saturday he is currently #1 in the country and just 4 away from tying UofL’s single season record. Anthony Floyd had 10 in one season and 18 overall which is also a record.

 

5) Teddy Bridgewater got his first NFL start yesterday…..
