Weather, Weather Go Away
If you thought winter was over then guess again. This weekend, the first full weekend of April (yes, April!), has freezing temperatures and potential snow in the forecast. Unfortunately, the cruelty of the weather is unkind to outdoor sports.
Men's soccer had a spring scrimmage against Evansville on Saturday night. It is been moved to today starting at 7:30 p.m. Unlike the regular season, admission for the spring events is free.
Lacrosse, playing on the road and a little further south in Chapel Hill, will still play on Saturday at 3:00 p.m.
Baseball is still set for their single game each day this weekend, but is on alert with potential schedule changes, weather pending.
Women's tennis has moved their event indoors with admission still being free at the Bass-Rudd Tennis Center.
Hanging on for Dear Life
The Cards' speed has been the extent of the offense lately. Sidney Melton is a perfect 9-for-9 in stolen bases and Celene Funke has successfully stolen base 11 times. Melton is three stolen bases away from moving into Louisville's Top-10. Nicole Pufahl has had success driving runs in throughout her career and has 99 career rbi's.
Louisville hopes to get a sweep this weekend, which would improve their record to 27-11 and 7-5.
Remember, schedule change today where the squads will play a Friday doubleheader, beginning at 2 p.m. and the third game of the series on Sunday. Walk right in, it's a freebie.
Bass-Rudd's Indoor Warmth
Right around the corner from Ulmer Stadium is one of the finest tennis stadiums in all the land. Bass-Rudd features eight outdoor courts as well as a complete interior facility with six indoor and climate-controlled courts.
Grab some snacks and hot chocolate and head on over to watch some future Grand Slam Champions compete.
Future Basketball Stars
If you want to see UofL WBB recruits in action before they join the ranks of the Red and Black they will be showcasing their talent at Thomas More College tonight and tomorrow. The Slam Jam Fest is tonight at 7:00 p.m., and the Ohio/Kentucky all star-game is Saturday at 5:30 p.m. Thomas More is a northern Kentucky college located in Crestview Hills, KY,. It's not far from Erlanger and not too far off of I-71 or I-275.
Molly Lockhart (Butler High School, Louisville), Seygan Robins (Mercer County High School, Harrodsburg), and Mykasa Robinson (Ashland Blazer High School, Ashland) will all have one last go-around before their high school days conclude.
The cheer-leading events include the Louisville all-girl, small co-ed, and large co-ed divisions. They have completed their 45 second school support cheers with the longer, more acrobatic events coming up.
A few random holidays today include National Walk to Work Day, National Twinkie Day, and Drowsy Drivers Awareness Day. However, the most relevant holiday to Cardinal Couple is National Student Athlete Day. We recognize the hard work, sacrifices, contributions, and successes that these few, proud folks that call themselves student athletes.
Paulie would also probably want me to add that today is the first day of the Keeneland Spring Meet in Lexington. This grand, old horse-racing facility brings in the best horses, trainers, owner and jockeys for a few weeks in the spring and fall. Nine races today, with the eighth being the Transylvania Stakes race for three-year-olds.
and hear the show at noon Saturday. They handed out a lot of profitable advice laast year and they're a great source to review and help you decide hpow to handicap and wager on Kentucky racing.
Happy Friday and Go Cards!
