Junior Kelsi Jones, on the strength of two homeruns and .438 hitting takes the first ever Player of the Week honor in the AAC. Jones, an outfielder, is a transfer from Missouri and is from Carmel, IN.
Caralisa "Carl" Connell made the honor roll based on her 2-1 record and 14 strikeouts in 15 innings of pitching.
Louisville Softball claimed wins this past weekend in the first game of each day over Northern Illinois, Ohio State, and St. Johns. In the second games of the double-headers on Friday and Saturday, UofL was bested by Florida Atlantic and Tulsa.

five game round-robin affair. Louisville starts with Kelsi Jones's former school, Missouri with a 12:45pm first pitch on Valentine's Day followed by a 3pm scheduled start against host school Jacksonville.
Saturday sees two matchups against future conference opponents starting in the morning with a 9:30am first pitch against Notre Dame. The second game of the day for UofL sees a matchup with North Carolina scheduled for 11:45am. Louisville finishes off the weekend with a 9am repeat matchup with North Carolina. This should be a good weekend for Louisville Softball to get a feel for what competition will be like in the ACC.
The Cards return home and hope Ulmer Stadium thaws out in time for a home opener in the Cardinal Classic on Feb. 21st.
Field Hockey Signees
|Anna DuFour and her sister Renee will be Cards|
Nicole Woods will be coming to Louisville out of Beverly, MA on the north side of Boston. Nicole decided between Ice Hockey and Field Hockey in coming to play forward here at Louisville. Woods also considered playing at UMass, New Hampshire and Providence.
Abby Grimes is a midfielder out of Visitation Academy of St. Louis. Abby is an great passer, look for her to tally a large number of assists.
Another midfielder out of the St. Louis area and the same club Field Hockey team is Marigrace Radsdale.
Louisville is almost getting a two-for-one deal with Anna and Renee DuFour. No strangers to the Louisville campus, Anna and Renee are merely crossing the street from duPont Manual High School. Part of Manual's 2011 State Championship team, I believe Anna and Renee are both midfielders.
