So Much Laundry, So Little Time!

 


We were live and greeting people at the CENTRAL CARDINAL CLUB BOUTIQUE AND FASHION SHOW.

HI! Paulie here and we had a blast meeting and talking to all the womens' sports fans here at the show! Thanks to columnist Jeff McAdams and Donny Yaste for helping Sonja and I man (and woman) the booth. Also, thanks to everyone who stopped by and saw us!

THE WINNING TICKET NUMBER FOR THE 1980 UofL MEN'S TEAM PLAQUE WAS 702211 AND THE WINNER WAS AL PARRISH..







TUESDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

Our staff columnist Sandy Walker is back with her weekly romp through all things Cardinal Women's sports related.

Hours are 11 a.m. - 9 p.m. While at the table, be sure to register to win UofL memoribilia and talk Cardinal womens' athletics with us! See you there!


Today is a mixed bag of bleached to delicate articles!

VOLLEYBALL

The 18-3 VolleyCards with their # 15 NCAA ranking returns to action Friday afternoon at Syracuse and then on to Marquette on Sunday. Louisville is currently in second place in BIG EAST Volleyball and this weekend's action could propel them into the #1 spot if they can win two tough tests on the road. The Marquette game could be crucial, since the Golden Eagles currently sit atop the league with no conference losses. Louisville's only loss was to Notre Dame.


********************************************************************************************

SOCCER
The Soccer team brings its 9-4-3 record into a home match against Cinncinnati.   The game begins at 7:00 at Cardinal Park Friday night The weekend matches are also a chance to say thank you and goodbye to the hard working seniors on the Cardinal squad.

SWIM AND DIVE

On Friday the swim team will be in action at the SMU Classic in Dallas, TX.

FIELD HOCKEY

Saturday at 12:00 we have the opportunity to watch the field hockey team play Villanova at 12:00 with plenty of time to gather elsewhere before the 3:30 football game.  The game is played at our home field, Trager Stadium.  If that is too much activity for you in one day you have a 2nd opportunity on Monday at 4:00.

GOLF

Women’s Golf finished 11th at the Ruth's Chris Tar Heel Invitational which is no small accomplishment.

WOMENS' BASKETBALL EXHIBITION GAME

15 days remain before the Halloween night (October 31) date our U of L women will match up with the St. Petersburg, FL. Eckard College team for the first exhibition game of the season.    

This is a free game. You don't need a ticket and won't receive one in your season ticket packages, which should be arriving in a couple of days. Just show up, walk in the KFC YUM! Center and have a seat. It's a great chance to see your Lady Cards hoopsters "on the house". The conflict with Halloween is a bit unfortunate, but if you're looking for a way to get out of handing out Halloween candy, here's your  chance.

SPORTS GENDER EQUITY STUDY


Student athletes and fans at the University of Louisville are fortunate to be in an era of growing women’s athletic support from both the school and their fans.  Unfortunately this is not apparently the nationwide trend.  Unless we know where we have been we cannot know where we are going and studies like this are still necessary. 

This month a special report was released by the Sport, Health and Activity Research and Policy Center for Women and Girls (SHARP).  The original research at can be found at http://irwg.research.umich.edu/pdf/OCR.pdf.  It studied the state of high school athletics and the inequalities in the US public school system. It reports on historical changes in the provision of athletic opportunity in U.S. high schools. It is intended to provide educators and policymakers current information. Unfortunately, even 40 years after the passing of Title IX the report indicated this as the decade of decline as the gender gap in opportunities between boys and girls persisted at 11-12%.  Supporters of girl’s and women’s athletics are the front line of defense in our local grade and high schools.  Awareness and prevention of the continued decline in the opportunities for girls must not be allowed.

LITIGATION

Just when we had thought that things had calmed down Kelli Anderson of SI.com has posted in her Inside College Basketball an overview of the Tennessee Athletic Departments’ difficulties.  Included was information that others besides Debby Jennings have also filed litigation against the school.   The complete article can be read at:

  1. I don't believe that Pat stepped down on her own terms. Her second statement was to placate the UT Athletic Department. If Warlick coached last year's team, why couldn't she do the same this year with Pat still in place?

    UT should be ashamed treating a legend this way.

      Our temporary investigators quit before they got around to telling me what answer they found out so I have no specific information about the admission procedures for the tip-off luncheon. There has been no announcements regarding tickets being sent and last year admission was obtained by use of a check list at the door so I suspect it will be the same this year.
