VOLLEYBALL, FIELD HOCKEY AND CROSS COUNTRY REPRESENTED AT LOUISVILLE FALL SPORTS MEDIA DAY
Three fall sports answered questions and discussed their upcoming seasons at the Fall Sports Media, held in the first floor press conference room of the Kueber Center Planet Fitness building on Floyd Street yesterday.
Sorry that I couldn't do anything about the commercials that precede the video versions in all three. Google and the other mega-million corporations gotta rake in them dollars, right?

Maybe the most interesting aspect of the video link for Field Hockey is a 30 second commercial for Chromebook and only 56 seconds of an over six minute actual player and coach question and answer session.
I guess I didn't do a very good job on this one.
Cross Country's head coach Dale Cowper was the third speaker. Cowper coaches both men and women's cross country. He did not bring any student-athletes

( I could not find any video of Cowper's remarks)
It's always great to catch up with the coaches and student-athletes at events such as these. It is a mystery to me why more media don't attend them.
After the Media Day, I sauntered upstairs to say "Hi" to any coaches around from the Louisville women's basketball and Louisville Lacrosse programs. I hit pay-dirt in that journey...talking briefly to Jeff Walz, Sam Purcell, Jonneisha Pineda, operations director Kate Tucker, associate strength and conditioning coach Beth Burns and director of player relations Adrienne Johnson for hoops and Scott Teeter and Kay Morissette on the Lacrosse side of the building.
No recordings on those chats. Highlights of the journey upstairs included meeting Coach J.P. for the first time (a delightful young woman!), presenting Coach Sam a bag of chips, discussing with Coach Walz his travels over the summer and reviewing the Canada trip with Kay and Teeter. We definitely need to set up a Cardinal Couple interview with coach J.P...and have set those wheels in motion.
Have a terrific Tuesday!
