Wednesday afternoon former volleyball player Tess Clark announced that she was going pro. Clark has signed a contract with Les Louves du SRD volleyball in France.
Clark was a four-year starter at Louisville. During her time she became the 18th player in program history to reach the 1000 kill mark. She was part of two ACC Championship teams (one with Anne Kordes and one with Dani Busboom Kelly) and was 76-47 (0.618) in her career.
The awards for Clark pile high including awards such as being named to the Academic All-ACC squad, All-ACC teams every year, All-ACC Freshman team, and several AVCA Regional honors. She was second on the team in kills and attack percentage and fourth in blocks her senior year.
Cardinal alum Erin Fairs is also playing overseas currently and can play a role in mentoring Clark. We wish Tess the best in France!
Men's Soccer Plays with Class

Yesterday, the soccer team hosted six-year-old David Turner for a special day at Lynn Stadium. Turner suffers from Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Giloma (DIPG), an inoperable brain tumor on the brain. Turner and his family have been big time soccer supporters since I have been attending matches.

As a member of the Louligans, the UofL soccer supporter section, it always brings a smile to my face when the team holds events such as this. Thank you for representing this university with great class.
The Dream defeated winless Indiana last night 72-67 in Atlanta. Angel had a strong game with 16 points in 30 minutes. Tiffany Hayes has been another "go-to" for Atlanta this seaason and she responded in fine fashion with 23 points to lead all scores.
Myisha Hines-Allen is further down on the WNBA stats list with 5.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 0.8 assists, and 0.5 steals per game in her 10 games with the Washington Mystics (6-4). She hasn't seen as much playing time as the veteran McCoughtry has, but has earned herself solid playing time and a role with the Mystics. At this rate she will be a star in Washington in a matter of years.
What Day is it?
There are a lot of good "holidays" today including National Day of Prayer for Law Enforcement, National Flip Flop Day, Native American Citizenship Day (we love you, Schimmel sisters!), Nature Photography Day, Elder Abuse Awareness Day, and Worldwide Day of Giving.
There's no Case or myself in the studio tomorrow, but Paulie, Worldwide, and a random special guest or two will attempt to hold down the fort called the Magnificent Media Mansion on Mellwood for another rendition of the Cardinal Couple Radio Hour. You can tune into 100.9 WCHQ fm radio or on Facebook live on the WCHQ Facebook page.
Happy Friday and Go Cards!
