Lacrosse All-American Honors
Kaylin Morissette has become only the second Cardinal to be named to the IWLCA All-American team first team. She was preceeded in this honor last year by Nicki Boltja. Boltja was on the sidelines for the Cardinals this year serving as a volunteer assistant coach after earning the honor in her senior year.
Morissette earned second team honors last year, while Faye Brust and Monica Negron were selected for the third team.
Faye Brust was named to the All-West Region as was mentioned last week here on Cardinal Couple. No doubt Brust's campaign for All-American status this year was hampered by her late season knee injury causing her to miss several games leading into post-season play. Also named to the second team All-West Region were Cortnee Daley and Hannah Koloski.
Brust is a graduating senior, but Kaylin Morissette has the opportunity to create Cardinal history by potentially being the first two-time All-American First Team member if she accomplishes the feat again next year. Cortnee Daley also has another shot at the honor as she also has another year of eligibility. Hannah Koloski is merely a sophomore this year.
Things have just about wrapped up for women's sports here in the Spring, but you could certainly do worse than to give some attention to UofL Baseball, right now. Dan McDonnell's squad set a record for winning 25 games in conference in their first year in the ACC. The UofL squad also received a host of All-Conference honors including ACC Coach of the Year.
The team goes into the ACC conference...well, we'll call it a tournament, anyway...as the top seed and favorite to win. The ACC Baseball tournament format is curious, there are two play-in games for seeds seven through ten, then the top 6 seeds, plus the play-in winners play in two pools with seeds 1, 4, 5, and 8/9 in one pool, and 2, 3, 6, and 7/10 in the other pool. The pool winners then play a game for the championship.
Charlie Springer, over at UofL Card Game can always be counted on for good UofL Baseball coverage.
