UofL concluded final exams yesterday, coincidentally the same day the city celebrated its 240 birthday.
Hensley Hauls in Awards
Megan Hensley's hot weekend helped her rake in awards. She was named ACC Pitcher of the Week, Louisville Slugger/NFCA Player of the Week, and USA Softball National Collegiate Player of the Week.

She now leads the team in batting average (.370), hits (50), doubles (12), home runs (8), and RBI (44). In the circle, Hensley posts a 3.14 ERA and a 15-7 record. She has struck out 127 batters while walking 77 and allowing 161 hits.
Softball Hosts Marshall
The Thundering Herd are 23-27-1 and are on a losing streak. They are lead by Aly Harrell, who bats .360 with 10 home runs and 39 RBIs. Elicia D'Orazio is a threat on the bases and her 43 stolen bases rank fifth in the nation.
Louisville leads the all-time series 4-2, but the two teams have not played each other in a decade. The Cards swept Marshall 6-2 and 7-0 in a doubleheader on March 12, 2008.
Louisville cannot afford to drop a game this late in the season. They are on the line in terms of making the NCAA Tournament. Winning their last four regular season games and making a run in the ACC Tournament should earn them a spot. Having the 39th best RPI in the country is a plus for a Louisville softball team, that has had struggles in the back half of the season.
