Random Louisville Women's Sports News -- FRIDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

We've come to the weekend at last, Cards fans! I am no Daryl, as she and I traded days so she could keep working hard with the Louisville Bats. Summertime can be tricky as there is usually minimal news for us to hit, especially with current teams and players.

We do have random news and notes to hit that have happened periodically throughout this past week that we might not have mentioned yet that we for sure want to hit before the weekend officially arrives.

Oh, and for the kiddies...the 80's sensation --  the Lover Boy video "Working for the Weekend" HERE

Louisville Volleyball in Brazil

Louisville volleyball continues their summer trip to Brazil and remained undefeated with a 3-1 victory over the Brazilian U21 National Team. The Cards took the match by winning three straight sets (25-23, 25-17, 25-19) after dropping the opening set 19-25.

Women's Soccer Representation with Indy Eleven

Louisville women's soccer has plenty of representation on Indy Eleven in their USL W League. Last night, Indy Eleven took on St. Charles, but fell 2-0. Current Cardinals Addie Chester and Lizzie Sexton were part of the starting XI.

Cardinal alum Maisie Whitsett entered the match as a substitute. She led the 'Eleven' with five shots. Current Cardinal Karsyn Cherry is also listed on the roster but did not play.

Ekic Back with Racing Louisville

Louisville women's soccer legend Emina Ekic returned to the pitch this week with Racing Louisville following a stint on the inactive list due to injury. She subbed in during the second half of Racing's 3-0 victory over Houston in front of roughly 5,000 fans and nearly 200 dogs.

Engstler Signs with Lynx

Louisville women's basketball alum Emily Engstler is back in the WNBA. She recently signed on with the Minnesota Lynx under a hardship contract due to the Lynx have two players out with injuries.

While Engstler is guaranteed to be on the roster for at least three weeks with multiple other players out, her contract is subject to change as other players return.

She will be eligible to play when the Lynx take on the Los Angeles Sparks tonight at 10:00 p.m. ET. The Lynx will remain out west when they face the Las Vegas Aces on Sunday at 9:00 p.m. ET.
