E DOMINANCE CONTINUES IN SHOT PUT IN ACC CHAMPIONSHIPS -- SUNDAY CARDINAL COUPLE



HENDERSON RULES AGAIN IN SHOT PUT


If you were going to try and describe Emmonnie Henderson's success in track and field throwing events in horse racing terms...you might call her the American Pharoah of the shot put. Or the Secretariat of the discus. However you choose to describe her accomplishments in sending objects flying through the air...the term 'winner' needs to be included in the details. 

Henderson took the shot put competition at the ACC Championships yesterday in Tallahassee, FL on the FSU campus yesterday with a toss of 16.55 meters/54-3.75 feet. She was the only participant on the women's side to clear 16 meters...the closest competitor managing 15.92. To break that down by the meters vs feet comparison (1 meter = 3.28 feet) her toss was over two feet better that the next best throw. It is the second year in a row she has led the field. 

She was the only Cardinal women's track and field participant to win an event at the meet. She'll enter the circle again today to hurl the discus...which is probably the better of the two events she participates in skill-wise...in search of another first place. She also won that last year at the ACC Championships. 

The dream to participate in the Olympics in Rio lives on for the Edwardsville, IL. field specialist. She knows the competition to gain a spot on the squad will be tough. She practices and is mentored on the Cardinal squad by another very good thrower...staff member Jere Summers...who also dominated the tossing events during her time at UofL as a student-athlete. 



In horse racing terms (again) they make a great entry. 

We wish "E" the best of luck as she rotates through the final day of the ACC championships and heads to the NCAA Outdoor Championships. She looks to go onward and the competition should be well-warned that she is coming, she will beat you and she will go further.

Further. It fits her resume well.

RADIO REBROADCAST

In case you missed the live broadcast of THE CARDINAL COUPLE RADIO HOUR yesterday on WCHQ 100.9 FM...there's no need to go screaming in the streets in despair. (Sure, you could...but that might draw a little unwanted attention.)

Instead...we recommend you listen to the SoundCloud rebroadcast at the link below:

WE tried to borrow coach's green tie for
the broadcast but couldn't find him (or the tie)
We had a fun-filled show with Jared Anderson live via phone from an amusement park, audio from Cortnee Daley, Brittany Sims, Megan Hensley, Sandy Pearsall, Olivia Cason and a review of UofL women's sports action from last week. 

Worldwide made his first studio appearance in four weeks, Monk flubbed up the audio again, we got several sirens and airplanes in our interviews and Punkin got a treat. 

Need more info? 

Well, off to the broadcast you should go!

  3. NCAA Selection show for softball to be held at 10 p.m. Sunday night on ESPNU. Emmonnie Henderson finished second in the discus throw at the ACC Championships. Beaten by Kellion Knibb from FSU with a real serious throw of 198-11 over Henderson's 177-3.
