Louisville Lacrosse opens today vs Marquette...Radio Today -- SATURDAY CARDINAL COUPLE
#15 LACROSSE RETURNS FOUR TOP SCORERS AND SOLID DEFENSE
It might be a little chilly for the start of the 2016 Louisville Lacrosse season, but the LAX Cards look to get off to a red-hot start against the Marquette Golden Eagles today at 2 p.m. in the Louisville Lacrosse stadium...located on Floyd Street.
A Louisville Lacrosse stadium that now has a press box. We are overjoyed and excited for the game (and the shelter...)
Head Louisville lacrosse coach Kellie Young returns top scorers Kaylin Morissette, Hannah Koloski, Cortnee Daley and Kelli Gerding...plus a solid returning defense lineup...headed up by juniors Steph McNamara and Emily Howell. If there is a question about this squad, it is in goal...where reserve Brittany Read replaces Ashley Peacock...who transferred to UMBC (University of Maryland-Baltimore County) in the off-season.
Read did see considerable action for the Cards in 2015 and Young describes her as "being more active inside the crease and has super-quick hands".
Marquette comes off their second straight 5-12 season and participates in the BIG EAST. They return nine starters...headlined by defenders Elizabeth Goslee (All-BIG EAST Second Team in 2015) and Kayce Haverstick...who is definitely a nominee for Worldwide's All-Name team.
Young expresses optimism about the campaign ahead. She revealed to CARDINAL COUPLE a couple of weeks ago:
"We are more dynamic this year and we'll have a few players running behind the cage...like Gerding, Jillian Balag and Madison Hoover. They'll bring a different look to our offense and we expect to see more balance."
We hope to see you out at the Stadium...admission to Louisville Lacrosse is free.
