No News in the UofL Women's Sports World -- THURSDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

As expected during the holiday season things have been quiet in the world of Louisville women's sports. We see the occasional transfer in or out announcement such as the news Case provided yesterday.

Wintertime is when we tend to focus more on basketball since most of the sports we cover either have concluded or have not started their seasons. Just to recap the fall sports we cover here and how they fared:

Field Hockey

Justine Sowry's squad went 15-7 on the year with a top five strength of schedule. The Cards went 3-3 in conference play and fell in the ACC semifinals. Louisville made its fifth straight and 12th overall appearance in the NCAA Tournament, where they advanced to the Elite Eight.


For Karen Ferguson-Dayes and Co, this season was anything but joyful as the Cards went 4-9-5 including 3-5-2 in conference play. While the season was disappointing, Louisville ended on a high note when they upset ranked Duke at home to close out the season. The Cards failed to qualify for both the ACC Tournament and NCAA Tournament.


The threat of Dani Busboom Kelly leaving Louisville to go home to Nebraska grows every season, but she still reps the Cardinal bird on her attire as of right now. This season, Louisville went 27-5 and finished #6 in the final rankings. The Cards finished third in the ACC, one game out of first, and then advanced to its third straight Elite Eight. Louisville has been to the NCAA Tournament a whopping 32 times, more than any other school currently in the ACC.

Positive Update on Paul

I heard back from Sonya yesterday afternoon, who provided a positive update on our fearless leader Paul. He went in for a procedure the day after Christmas. Here is what Sonya sent me:

"The doctor was pleased with his outcome. He is doing well but is in pain."

Paul will still be in the hospital for a few days recovering but you can send him get well wishes via email or mail to his PO Box. Paul is not actively checking his phone or email so he won't be able to get back with you for at least a few days.

Mail: PO Box 91521, Louisville, KY 40291

We are happy to hear that his procedure went well and we hope he has a swift recovery so he can rejoin us here at the site in the coming weeks.

Happy Thursday and Go Cards!
