Student-Athlete Success -- USA Volleyball Collegiate National Team -- WEDNESDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

Making The Grades

We all know how talented our Cardinals are. But it should come as no surprise that they’re equally talented on the academics side. We often praise how smart and hard-working the student-athletes are and the latest news from UofL only supports our claim.

378 Cardinals were named to the ACC Honor Roll. 378!

There was a conference record 4769 student-athletes on the list this year. Among 15 schools that averages out to about 318 student-athletes per school. UofL was 60 higher than that.

The 378 is also an increase from last year where 364 student-athletes made the list.

I did not have the time to go sport-by-sport to see how many players from each sport made it or the percentage of players from a respective sport to make it but each sport’s list seems pretty close to a full roster. Women's basketball's list is quite impressive with Alexis Barlow, Arica Carter Asia Durr, Lindsey Duvall Dana Evans, Sam Fuehring, Jazmine Jones, Jessica Laemmle, Molly Lockhart, Seygan Robins, Mykasa Robinson, and Kylee Shook all making the honor roll. 

The qualifications are that a student maintain a 3.0 or better grade-point average for the entire academic year. 

A major congratulations and hats off to each of those student-athletes for their hard work off the field/court/water..

USA Volleyball Collegiate National Team

I’m trying to leave most of the volleyball news to Jeff this summer but I figure it’s early enough in the week to give it a mention.

Tori Dilfer and the USA Collegiate National Team took down Ukraine Monday. They won 3-1 (24-26, 25-22, 25-17, 25-18) to advance to the semifinal.

Although no stats were provided it was noted that 11 of the 12 players on the roster recorded a kill including our own Dilfer. 

USA squared off against Argentina during the day yesterday but no results have been posted from UofL yet.

Be sure to check back tomorrow for Paulie's interview with WBB's Jazmine Jones and Friday for A History of Louisville Women’s Sports Chapter 7!

Happy Wednesday and Go Cards!



  1. Just saw that Sam Fuehring has signed a pro contract to play in Germany beginning in August. She'll play for Eisvogel USC Freiburg in the premier division of the Damen Basketball Bundesliga League (DBBL), the top women's league in Germany.

  2. First time I've seen Alexis Barlow's name officially listed.
    Congrats to all who made it😁

  3. And never doubted Sam would play pro somewhere. Arica either.

    1. After each of their Soph years I never thought either would come close to playing pro ball. I didn’t think either would even help L’ville even. WRONG!

  4. Paulie, ATay just hit a career high 13 points and outplayed several 1st round draft choices in a 73-72 Lynx win tonight

  5. Replies
    1. A walk on, she never actually played, but she was on the sidelines, lot of people got her mixed up with Mykasa, same type hair.
