Chad, Carter and Softball -- WEDNESDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

Jared's Status Update

As always, I sit on my couch with my feet propped up as I type my article the evening before. Getting up early to type an article before work doesn't seem like a great idea for someone who hates mornings.  Besides having a major food coma from the Kentucky State Fair, the only difference between this Wednesday post and the ones from the past three months is that there's actually news to report.

Tessa Chad Takes Assistant Coach Position

It was announced on both Tessa Chad's and Wagner College's social media platforms that the former Louisville lacrosse star has taken an assistant coach position with the Seahawks.

Chad was the lone senior for the Cards last year and led the team in scoring.  Wagner College went 16-4, won the Northeast Conference, and made it to the NCAA Tournament last year.

Tessa transferred to Louisville from Canisius when Scott Teeter left Canisius to accept the job as head Lacrosse coach. Her leadership, knowledge and proficiency was a valuable addition to Louisville Lacrosse, and we wish her the best at Wagner!

From Scott Teeter on Tessa:

"Tessa is an excellent student of the game. She is also an excellent role model for today's adolescents. She will develop into a fantastic coach".

Dori Carter Joins Women's Golf

Well, it's safe to say Dori has been found, but Nemo is still nowhere to be seen.

Dori Carter has been named the new assistant coach for women's golf.  She will join new head coach
Whitney Wade Young in the development and coaching the Cardinal chip-and-putters.  Carter comes from a successful Ole Miss program and was a two-time All-American.  Since joining the Ladies PGA (LPGA) Tour in 2011 Carter has participated in 140 events.  She was a volunteer coach at her alma mater and played a role in their 2018 and 2019 NCAA Championships appearances. She's also been inducted into the Ole Miss Hall Of Fame.

Make sure to catch Paulie's interview and article with UofL Women's Golf new head coach Whitney Wade Young and senior student-athlete Lauren Hartlage in the Thursday edition of Cardinal Couple. I'd guess that he'll ask about the addition of Carter.

Softball Fall Schedule Released

As Scar once sang about, Be Prepared.  On top of all the fall sports going on softball has announced a pretty busy fall schedule.  They will play four opponents in double-headers for a total of eight games.

The Cards will host Eastern Kentucky on Saturday, Sept. 7 at 12:30.  They'll host Bellarmine two weeks later on Sept. 21 at noon.  They head to Lexington to face Kentucky the week after at noon.  They'll finish at home against Indiana on Oct. 6, starting at 1:00.

 Admission to softball events is free, but be prepared for increased traffic and parking with field hockey and volleyball sharing the Floyd Street Parking Garage.  Also, plan ahead for any football home games that may cause traffic and parking problems.

I'm A Busy Guy

With all the sports starting up it just makes life crazy busy for photographers like myself.  Up to this point in 2019 I've shot 133 events, most of them sporting events.  I expect to get up to around 185-200 events before the end of the year so I'm sure you'll find me at most games.

Happy Wednesday and Go Cards!


EDITOR NOTE: We wondered recently whether -- 1) Does Jared Anderson ever sleep? and 2) Are there multiple Jared Anderson's? 

In addition to his wonderful photography work, he also writes here twice a week, holds down a full-time job, spends a lot of time capturing Louisville Bats moments and its even rumored he's hard at work practicing his skills on the euphonium to play on our weekly radio show THE CARDINAL COUPLE RADIO HOUR. And that's just a few of his many activities. 

He also does photo shoots for events, individuals and groups. As we like to say, no one, anywhere is safe from the Jared camera. Wanna get shot? Text Jared at 502.645.8765

As a full-fledged member of "the knuckle-heads" and "A-TEAM",  we greatly appreciate the hours he devotes to us. We just need to find a way to keep him from making predictions...


Happy Wednesday and Go Cards!



  1. UofL A Wbb topic CJW has got to let Kylee Shook ball out this year.I think she can play her way into the league WNBA.

  2. The sky is the limit for Kylee as long as the knees hold out. She's ready for the season and hopes to fill the role Sam played.


  3. ALWAYS been high on Kylee's potential.
    Game changing potential, imo.
