Lauren Hartlage Moves Up to 17th

After her even-par performance on Thursday, Lauren Hartlage shot two-under on Friday to move up from T28th to T17th in the United States Women's Open. Her round included a 50-foot putt for birdie to help her towards that two-under. She remains seven shots off the lead after the Friday leader, Mina Harigae, also fired a two-under second round. With the cut line at +3, Hartlage was safe by quite a bit, and players have shown big movement in the two days so far. We'll keep an eye on her as she finishes out the weekend. Hartlage will tee off at 12:05 today.

WCWS Update

The Cards aren't in it, but that doesn't mean the Women's College World Series isn't a fun event to keep up with. Last night's action saw the first elimination games, as UCLA and Arizona ended the dreams of Northwestern and Oregon State. Both Arizona and Oregon State were unseeded, so the unseeded ranks were bound to lose one member yesterday, but the other unseeded team in Oklahoma City, Texas, won their first game. The Longhorns' 0 loss stat will be put to the test this afternoon when they take on their rival, the Sooners of Oklahoma, who just happens to be the #1 seed. The Sooners let Northwestern score first in their game Thursday before going on to win 13-2. Texas scored first against UCLA on a controversial error before going on to win 7-2. That game will get underway at 3PM on ABC. On the other side of the bracket, 7-seed Oklahoma State will take on 14-seed Florida at 7PM on ESPN.

Cardinal Couple Radio Hour Podcast

We're back this week! I suppose I should say I'm back since the show has gone on in my absence, but after taking last week off, we'll have four in the booth for today's show. Though the end of the UofL seasons is on the horizon, we'll still have plenty to talk about. As always, you can check out the live stream of the show by going to the Cardinal Couple YouTube page and clicking on the live video. Jeff usually creates that about an hour before the show, which officially starts at 11 AM Eastern. If the live time doesn't work for you, there are plenty of playback options, so be sure to check out whichever is best for you!
