Softball falls at Notre Dame...Kentucky Girls All-State team named

SUNDAY at CARDINAL COUPLE:

-Softball Cards lose in South Bend 8-5

-Kentucky Girls High School All-State
teams named

-Women's Track & Field at the Sea-Ray 



The University of Louisville softball team suffered a gut wrenching loss to Notre Dame yesterday when Lauren Stuhr slammed a two-out, three run homer in the bottom of the seventh inning to lead the Irish to the 8-5 win. The game marked the return of Louisville pitcher Tori Collins to the mound after being sidelined for several weeks with a foot injury...but it certainly wasn't the way she wanted to return...her two innings of otherwise solid relief marred by the walk-off homer.

Louisville found themselves down  2-0 after four innings to the Irish before they collected the bats and pushed three runs to the plate...a two run homer by Colby Wherry being the highlight of the inning. Notre Dame countered with two in the bottom of the fourth, though, and regained the lead at 4-3.

The Cards fought back and went up 5-4 in the top of the sixth when Kristin Austin blasted a two run homer. The Irish (30-7, 6-0) tied it up at 5-5 in their half of the sixth...setting up the game winning blast by Stuhr in the seventh. The Cards' Collins got the first two Irish batter in the bottom of the seventh out.. before allowing two walks and then Stuhr's game ender.



Caralisa Connell got the start for Louisville (31-12, 9-3)and gave up five runs on eight hits in her five innings. Louisville allowed a season high nine walks in the contest. The teams try to get in two today...with first pitch at noon.

Sara Hammond gathers another
honor. The Louisville signee will
lead the Kentucky All-Stars against
Indiana.
Sara Hammond leads the lists of players named to the first and second Kentucky Girls All-State teams. She was also named Miss Basketball earlier this spring. She's headed to the "Ville" for college. Hammond averaged 16 points and 13 rebounds in leading Rockcastle County to the state championship title for 2011. Other 1st team selections:

-Rebecca Greenwell, Owensboro Catholic, 6'1" sophomore. High scoring guard averaged 32.9 a game. No declaration on her early college favorites..but both Louisville and Kentucky are greatly interested.

-Sydney Moss, Boone County, 5'11' junior. The talented guard/forward is looking at Florida, Louisville, Kentucky, West Virginia and North Carolina. She's the daughter of NFL great Randy Moss.

-Averee Fields, Calloway County, 6'0" senior. Fields averaged 23.8 ppg and 12.9 rebounds. She's headed to West Virginia to play her college ball.

-Chasity Gooch, Franklin-Simpson, 6'0" senior. Gooch punished opponents from her forward spot all season and averaged 24.5 ppg and 16.4 boards. Western Kentucky University will get her services.

-Lauren Tibbs, Scott County, 6'4" senior. She's a rebounding and inside post player that will head to Marquette for college hoops. 23.8 points a  game.

-Mecheal Guess, Louisville Manual, 5'10" senior. Guess was the engine that drove the Manual Bulldogs. She's headed to Pittsburgh to play volleyball.

-Makayla Epps, Marion County, 5'11" sophomore. The hardworking Epps can punish opponents inside or from the perimeter. Half the schools in DI basketball are interested, including Louisville and Kentucky.

-Kristin Stainback, Scott County, 5'9" senior.  The shifty guard put in almost 20 points a game and will take her offensive prowess to Austin Peay.

-Kendall Noble, Perry County, 5'11" junior. Noble is a game changer with 19.6 ppg . Louisville, Kentucky and most of the in-state school s are showing interest...she hasn't named any favorites yet.
