Cards lose in extra innings on final day of Red and Black Classic

With a delayed start to the final day of the Red and Black Classic because of wet weather, Louisville found itself with the unenviable task of facing Michigan again in the second and final day of the Red and Black Classic at Ulmer Stadium. Michigan capatalized on a big 8th inning to take the Cards down 7-3.

The Cards were able to grab a 3-2 lead after three innings when Chelsea Bemis knocked her first home run of the year but Michigan tied it up in the top of the fifth when Angela Findlay swatted a towering homer off the scoreboard.

The Wolverines took the lead in the eighth thanks to a Nikki Nemitz home run blast and the second four bagger of the day from Findlay.

Chelsea Leonard (4-1) took the loss for Louisville. The Cards game against Hofstra was cancelled because of travel plans for the Pride.

Louisville now heads to California for four days of softball action in the Judy Garmen Classic. Among the opponents, #2 Arizona.


Louisville's lacrosse team suffered a late 16-15 loss at Ohio State Saturday. The Cards had a 15-14 lead with a minute left in the contest but the Buckeyes scored twice in the final minute to pull out the win. The road trip continues for Louisville with a March 17th. contest at Vanderbilt.


1st and 2nd rounds of NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament will be held at Freedom Hall on March 20th and 22nd. The teams paricipating in Louisville will be announced tonight at 7 p.m. on ESPN. The Kentucky Wildcats are hoping that they receive a Louisville assignment for the first two rounds and a UK appereance would definitely boost the attendance for the Freedom Hall site.

The Big East could get possibly seven entries in the 64 team event. UConn, Notre Dame, Georgetown, Rutgers and St. John are considered "locks" for the tourney and Marquette and DePaul are on the bubble.

Louisville will participate in the WBI and announcements of first round sites, days and times are also expected Monday night. The Cards are hoping for first round action in Freedom Hall and could play either Weds. or Thurs. if they get the home court advantage. CARDINAL COUPLE will be covering the game in person (if in Louisville) as an official media representative.

CARDINAL COUPLE has applied for media pass coverage for the NCAA Tournament event here in Louisville as well and should receive notification on whether our application has been accepted this week. A special thanks to Louisville women's sports information director Kim Pemberton for providing application information for both events and helpful guidance in accessing the applications.
