Returning to UofL Campus -- FRIDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


Hello readers and hello weekend!! 

It is August which means Back to Schoooool!!  Not for me, I've already been on the campuses all summer and its been pretty quiet but now students and faculty are returning to begin another semester which we know also means G A M E S are on the horizon!!   We do not forget the term 'student-athlete' at here Cardinal Couple. 

I do a lot of onboarding for the university and get to meet and facilitate in the process of getting them on payroll, including coaches.   This gives me the opportunity to introduce myself and the site and welcome them to Louisville.  I also make sure they know the proper way to throw up the L's!!   

Because of this very busy time for our department, I unfortunately had to miss the annual Press Box golf scramble that I would normally attend to represent the site out at the University Golf Club.   This event actually was the reason I started golfing at all!   I couldn't say no and I am so glad I didn't because I'm proud to say 4 years later I now play a couple times a month, I'm not terrible, I have a good time, and I don't really lose any balls so I call that a bunch of wins! 

I did miss being out there this week and hope to get back out there next year and play with the coaches and other members of the media! 

Hey speaking of coaches..

The University of Louisville was named as the preseason favorite to win the 2023 Atlantic Coast Conference Volleyball Championship for the second year in a row following a vote of the ACC's head coaches.  The Cards also place five on the All-Preseason team - Anna DeBeer, Aiko Jones, Phekran Kong, Charitie Luper and Elena Scott.

Time is TBD on the schedule as of Thursday night
