Women's Golf 2nd in Central District Invitational -- TUESDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


Thoughts of golf near the end of February aren't traditionally on our minds here at Cardinal Couple. But, with the unseasonably warm weather we've being having in Louisville over the past several days...and the success of the Louisville women's golf team in Port St. Lucie, FL....let's talk a little chip and putt.

Lauren Hartlage has had a wonderful two days in the Central District Invitational and is tied for first place with a 36 hole total of 4-under-par 140. The freshman out of Elizabethtown, KY put up an opening round of 68 on Sunday and followed that up yesterday with a 72. 

The team is hitting the fairway and sinking the putts as well. Louisville is in second place at nine-over-par 585 and trails only Furman in the 14 team field. Furman has a 14 stroke lead over the Cards going into the final day. 

The Cards have six golfers on the fairways in Florida...four on the team and two participating as individuals (That term always makes me smile in golf...aren't we all individuals...with our own needs and desire and thoughts...?) Molly Skapic is having a fine couple of days for UofL with a two-day score of 147...which has her tied for seventh...and Olivia Cason a stroke back of her at 148.  A full individual and team listing at the end of this article. Skapic is a junior out of Miamisburg, OH and Cason a sophomore from Owensboro, KY. 

The Cards are a rather young bunch for head coach Courtney Trimble this season. Only two seniors are on the roster, one junior, three sophomores and three freshmen. Besides Hartlage and Cason, Ellen Kehoe is also from Kentucky...the sophomore played her golf in high school in Campbellsville, KY at Taylor County High School .

Kentucky Girls High School basketball tournament time is here! District play started Monday and continues today as teams strive to reach the Regionals and ultimately the Sweet Sixteen. 

Cardinal signee Lindsey Duvall leads the Bullitt East Chargers into District play tonight when they host Jeffersontown tonight at 6 p.m. J'Town goes by the Chargers as this should be a pretty energized game.  At least for the Bullitt East squad. They defeated J'Town 79-21 earlier in the season. 

Head Bullitt East coach David Stallings has led the Mt. Washington school to a 23-7 record this season. They went 3-0 in District 24 play and 8-1 in the Sixth Region. 

Seygan Robins, the junior Cardinal commit from Mercer County, got started with her squad last night and had no trouble in the 46th. District contest against Burgin...winning 64-19.
