Cards finish 5th in Ram Classic
The University of Louisville women's golf team finished tied for fifth in the Colonel Wollenberg's Ptarmigan Ram Classic on Tuesday afternoon in Fort Collins, Colorado. ( For the rest of the article, we will refer to the event as the Ram Classic). The Cardinals shot a 307 in the final round to finish with a total score of 896. Texas Tech won the event with a score of 860.
Sophomore Emily Haas finished tied at 10th with a 54 hole score of 220. She fired a 76 on the final day.
Sophomores Katie Petrino, Sara Karlsson, junior Tara Lyons and senior Candace Wiley also participated in the Ram Classic. Their 54 hole scores:
Petrino 226 tied for 24th
Lyons 226 " " " " "
Karlsson 227 tied for 30th
Wiley 223 tied for 56th
Louisville returns home to host the Cardinal Cup at the Cardinal Club in Simpsonville beginning Monday, Sept., 17th.
Funding not always a sure thing
The University of Louisville funds over 25 different athletic teams and squads each year. Whether it's sending the football team to Pittsburgh or the golf team to Colorado, players must be transported, lodged, fed and cared for. Louisville is one of the lucky NCAA Division I schools in terms of a healthy CAF Fund, donation systems and financial sponsorship and backing. We're thankful for that...we wouldn't want to see Shoni and the Lady Cards hitch-hiking on I-65 trying to get to South Bend for a game.
Economic times are tough, though...and not all universities share in the Cardinals' good fortunes. We provide the link below about Tennessee cutting 5 million dollars from their athletic budget. Not as a slap at U.T, but merely an example of how these tough economic times are affecting everyone and how fortunate Louisville is to have solid and stable funding.

Have a great Wednesday and we're currently taking bids on cutting the CARDINAL COUPLE lawns...Bill the Goat has gone on strike and the corporate lawnmower has stopped working after the S.E.P. School of Mechanical Dynamics students disassembled and rebuilt it last week.
