E Throws Big in Louisville Invitational....Softball Tonight...Basketball Musings -- TUESDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


HENDERSON BEATS HER SCHOOL MARK IN SHOT

Emmonnie Henderson broke her recent record setting mark in the shot put...again...over the weekend in the Louisville Invitational. Last week, in the Alabama relays, she set a personal and meet record...as well as a school record with a toss of 17.50 meters (57-5:00 in feet). Saturday, she threw for 17.98 meters (59 feet). 

Henderson also won the discus throw with a hurl of 51.26m (168-02 feet). Her throw was 18 feet further than the closest competitor. 

Overall, the cardinal women's finished second in the event...scoring 165 points. Purdue won with 195. Louisville's women also fared well in the 3000 meter steeplechase...where Claire Noser won for the Cards. The 4X100 meter relay team (Kelsey Heyward, Bre'Yana Wash, Alexis Gibbons, Raven Grant) came in second and set a new school record with a time of 45.22. Bailey Davis took the 5,000 meter run for UofL, also.

SOFTBALL HOSTS LIPSCOMB TODAY

Louisville Softball kicks off an eight-game home-stand tonight with a 5 p.m. contest against Lipscomb at Ulmer Stadium. Louisville (25-13) comes into the contest after sweeping Virginia Tech over the weekend in a three-game series in Blacksburg. 

The Cards step out of the ACC where they are currently 9-4 and in third place behind Florida State and North Carolina. 

Hot at the plate for Louisville is Nicole Pufahl.  "Poof" is batting .395 and has seven home runs and 37 RBI's. The speedy junior center-fielder from Moorpark, CA has also reached base via a hit or walk in her last dozen games. Seven Cardinals are hitting over .300 going into the Lipscomb contest. 

Maryssa Becker (19-7) continues to do work in the circle. She's complied an ERA of 2.13 and leads the ACC in innings pitched with 167.2.

The Cards faced Lipscomb (31-13) last year in Nashville. In a double-header, Louisville fell 2-1 in the first game but won the nightcap 7-1. 

Tonight's contest will be shown on the ACC Network Extra. They've haven't an
nounced the in-booth crew yet, but we're hoping for our pals Daryl Foust and Don Russell. Louisville also faces Western Kentucky tomorrow night at 6 p.m.

WBB at LOUIE AWARDS

-- WBB has had several visitors recently to check out the campus. Ronnie Nwora and Mykasa Robinson have been spotted on the grounds. Two up and coming high schoolers that would be great "gets" for Jeff Walz. Put 'em in the basket and proceed to checkout, Coach! 

-- No transfers in or out of the WBB programs as of Tuesday morning. Unfounded rumors continue to swirl about who has and has not been seen on campus. We're taking this thing down to DefCon 3. When they announce, if they announce...we'll cover it.
