We wish the best of luck to both the Cards WNBA players and it'll be interesting to see if either of their squads (who are 2nd and 3rd in the Eastern Division behind Connecticut) can ascend into becoming the league leaders.
FIELD HOCKEY RELEASES SCHEDULE
Louisville's Field Hockey squad, under the direction of Justine Sowry, looks to have a very competitive schedule for 2018. Louisville will host the 2018 NCAA Field Hockey Championships again this year at Trager Stadium. The Cards have eight home contests and will get things underway with an exhibition match against the Alumnae on August 18th.
Louisville goes on the road to start the regular season with a contest at Michigan on August 19th. and will travel to Bloomington face the IU Hoosiers on August 24th. The Cards have their home opener vs. Ohio State on Sunday, August 26th.
September brings nine games to the schedule. The "Flock" travels to Richmond, VA to take on UMass-Lowell on 9/1 and then will travel to Delaware for a 9/3 match against the Fighting Blue Hens. The Cards return home for a four game stand that features ACC foe UNC on 9/7, California on 9/9, Boston College on 9/14 and Northwestern on 9/16.

The ACC Championships are being held in Chapel Hill, NC this year and begin on November 1st.
Six top ten opponents. Two NCAA semifinalists in 2017 in Michigan and North Carolina. Challenging, indeed for Sowry's squad.
The Cards list 21 players from last season that are returning, including seniors Ayeshia McFerran, recognized as one of the best goalkeepers in Division I, midfielders Taylor Stone and Katie Walsh, who both gained valuable travel experience on teams that played in South America this summer and defensive back Maria Gomez...from Madrid, Spain...who played in 21 contests last year.
Coach Sowry will be assisted again this season by Associate Coach Lucas "The Pickle Man" Piccioli and joining the staff is former Cardinal great Erin Schneidtmiller (2010-13) who comes in after three years as an assistant at American University.
Admission is free to all home game at Trager. Come out and help us support Louisville Field Hockey!
