Louisville women's Swimming in third going into final day of ACC Championships -- THURSDAY CARDINAL COUPLE



COMERFORD TOPS IN 200 FREE


Going into the final day of the ACC Swimming/Diving Championships...Arthur Albiero's Swim and Dive squad sits in third place...registering 674.5 points. NC State leads the way with 776.5, Virginia has 750 and the Cards are ahead of UNC...who has 665. 

I'll be quite honest, I don't fully understand the scoring system of swimming...but you have to be encouraged by Coach Albiero's statements last night: 

"I am proud of how we performed today. We had  18 swims this morning and all 18 qualified to swim in tonight's finals," said Arthur Albiero, UofL head coach. "That being said, we positioned ourselves to challenge for our best ACC finish in school history. Our seniors have continued to set the tone and our freshman are learning quickly. Looking at tomorrow, we train exactly for the day 4 prelim session. I am looking forward to watching our team tomorrow." 


Mallory Comerford took first in the 200 Free with a 1:41.70. It was a second better than the nearest competitor and set a meet, pool, ACC and school record for the distance. 

In the 100 Breaststroke, Andrea Cottrell touched second with a 58.81. She was narrowly edged out of first by Virginia's Laura Simon's 58.46. Cottrell is the defending ACC champ at the distance and meet record holder. 

The 400-Medley Relay team of Alina Kendzior (52.65), Andrea Cottrell (58.65), Grace Oglesby (52.44) and Mallory Comerford (46.71) won silver with a time of 3:30.45. Kendzior led off the backstroke leg and was fourth, next in the water Andrea Cottrell handed over a second place to flyer Grace Oglesby, who was third before Mallory Comerford anchored and made up a place for the runnerup slot. NC State took gold, clocking in at 3:28.26.

The 2017 ACC Swimming & Diving Championships resume Thursday morning at 10 a.m. with the preliminaries in the 200 backstroke, 100 freestyle, 200 breaststroke, 200 butterfly, and the men's and women's platform diving. The finals for those events, in addition to the final heat of the 1650 freestyle and the 400 freestyle relay, begin at 6 p.m.


PAULIE PICKS

A rare Thursday where UofL WBB isn't playing. Six games on the ACC slate tonight. Let's have a look: 

NC State goes to Boston to stalk the Eagles. They should have no problem robbing this bird nest and bakes the Beantown team. Wolfpack. 

Notre Dame heads to the land of boiled peanuts and faces Clemson. They grab these Tigers by the tail and do an Irish jig and Riverdance for a win. ND

Georgia Tech drives the 'Ramblin Wreck to Chapel Hill and tries not to get stuck in the TarHeels garage. We'll go with these Engineers solving the NC equation. GT. 

Pittsburgh defends the Pete against a feisty bunch of Gobblers. Maybe the closest game of the night, we see the felines surviving against the Hokies. Pitt.  

Florida State goes on the warpath in Wahoo Country. The Cavs will put up a strong fight...but this one should give Chief Osceloa a victory dance chance. FSU.

Duke takes I-40 West to Winston-Salem and takes a hike in Trees territory. Wake needs a win to stay on the NCAA bubble but the Devils will get the win. Duke.

    1. Had a hard time deciding on GT v UNC and VT v Pitt...so you may have a better selection base. Pitt at home and just a UNC team that has seemed to give up were my basis on diffing with you.

  4. Maybe during the summer doldrums of Cardinal Couple radio, you could invite Coach Albiero to the program to talk about the scoring system?
