VOLLEYCARDS UNVEIL 2015 SCHEDULE
|NO TUESDAY GAMES!!|
Once again, the VolleyCards will split time between the KFC YUM! Center and Cardinal Arena. The season gets underway on August 22nd. with the annual Red/Black scrimmage in Cardinal Arena.
The first road trip of the year takes UofL to a familiar venue...Champaign, IL. where they'll face the Illini and opponents to be named later. The Illini always play the Cards tough.
Louisville returns to host the ACC/Big Ten Challenge in the KFC YUM! Center. UNC partners up with the Cards to face Minnesota and Wisconsin. They'll stay in town but move venues for the next and host the Cardinal Classic at Cardinal Arena Sept 11-12 with Utah, Ohio and Seton Hall on the guest list.
Road trips to Cincinnati (9/17) and UK (9/20) are next for the Cards to end the non-conference part of the schedule.
The first ACC opponent will be the Irish on Sept 25th. Louisville heads back across the bridge to welcome Miami, Syracuse and Boston College in the KFC YUM! Center.
The Cards will take a southern swing after that with road matches against Georgia Tech and Clemson before returning to the YUM! and serving it up against Wake Forest, Duke and a Wednesday night match against Notre Dame.
Louisville says goodbye to October and ushers in November on the road with a sojurn to Charlottesville to face the Hoos and takes a trip down Tobacco Road for UNC and NC State sets.
The Cards will get Pitt and Virginia Tech in the facility down by the Ohio River before applying the sunscreen and visiting Miami and Florida State on Nov 13th and 15th.
The final homestand of the year features Clemson and Ga. Tech. returning the Cardinal's visit from earlier in the schedule and UofL will close out the conference schedule on a potentially chilly northern swing to Boston College on Nov 25 and Syracuse the day after Thanksgiving.
Volleyball season less than three months away...with the hope and dreams of a return to the conference domination the Cards enjoyed in their Big East and AAC stays. A team that has addressed their weaknesses and gone out to get the fixes.
Anne Kordes has a team that is of her own making now, in terms of recruiting, as she gets ready for her second ACC battleground. A team that impressed Worldwide when he watched a spring round-robin last month. We'll be watching with interest...we hope you join us to watch wide-net action.
