Morissette is a native of Canada like Scott Teeter and coached on his staff at Canisius in 2017. They earned a MAAC Championship in her lone season up north.
During her stint as a player at Louisville Morissette became one of the most decorated players in program history. She ranks high in several categories: 572 draw controls (first), 51 assists (second), 73 games played (second), 218 points (third), 119 ground balls (third), and 167 goals (fourth). Her 572 draw controls is nearly double the 247, which ranks second in program history.
Expect to see a big improvement in the 2019 team as Morissette's role will increase. Her and Teeter could surprise some folks and have a Top 20 team next year.

Louisville Bats Mid-season Report
|Bat breaks mid-swing|
For those who do not regularly follow the team the transitioned from their standout purple to a more standard red and navy at the beginning of 2017 and continued that this year.
Following their victory last night the Bats are 29-43 and on a three-game win streak. Sadly, they are last in the league, but only by 1.5 games. They're eighth in the league (out of 14) with 20 home victories, but their 9-21 road record is dead last and way below the next team.
|#12 Nick Senzel|
The Bats' pitching staff has had some rough patches, but also some great outings. Recently, the Bats gave up 13, 16, and 12 runs over a three-game period. However, there have also been some one- and two-run games allowed as well. Robert Stephenson and Cody Reed have each had an 11-strikeout performance this season, neither of them going the full nine.
|#2 Hernan Iribarren|
The season started rough for the Bats, but they have settled down recently and are performing as hot as the Reds. By the way, that Cincinnati team is 29-27 over their last 56 games, which is better than any stretch they have had the last two years.
What Day Is It?
Well, it's Tuesday so why am I writing today's article? Paulie has an interviewed planned for this afternoon (shhh, it's a secret who it is) and will have a full report on that tomorrow along with a link to the full interview.
It is National Forgiveness Day. Has someone wronged you? Let go of that hatred or revenge-mindset and forgive them for their wrongdoing. If you have a special barber, or cosmetologist, or someone who takes care of your nails for you then make sure to show your appreciation for them on National Beautician's Day. Enjoy the rest of the day with a tropical cocktail or chocolate cake.
Happy Tuesday and Go Cards!
