Softball loses to Irish 3-1

Although the senior infield hails from Glenborg, Illinois...she has made Ulmer Stadium her second home over the last four years. Her three run blast against UofL Sunday led the Irish to a 3-1 win in the series final.

The bats failed to fire again for the Lady Cards softball team Sunday, as Notre Dame took the final game of the three game set. Christina Lux connected with a three run blast in the top of the 4th inning to give Notre Dame all the runs they needed to take down the Cards.

The Cards could get nothing going until the bottom of the seventh against Notre Dame. Colby Wherry scored on a fly ball to left by Jordan Trimble.


A tip of the hat to the UofL women's golf team. They lead the Big East Championship by seven strokes after the first round. Louisville got a 74 from Sarah-Maude Juneau to pullaway from the second place Irish. She's atop the leader board down at Innisbrook, FL. Laura Anderson carded a 78 and Daphine Parker finished with a 79 for the Cards.


One of our favorite trainers, Paul McGee, saddled Dubious Miss to a victory in the $150,000 Ben Ali at Keeneland Sunday. On board for the win was Churchill Downs legend Calvin Borel. Borel got Dubious Miss out to the lead early, saved ground by going to the rail in the stretch run and held off Kiss the Kid by 1 1/2 lengths for the victory. The six year old gelding is 8 for 19 lifetime and has earned almost $450,000 for owner David Holloway.

Calvin on the rail with a favorite. How many times has that scenario been played out over the years? A nice win for St. X grad Paul McGee, who still continues to send out his throughbreds on the Kentucky circuit despite the ridiculous inability of the Kentucky state legislature to pass rack track casino gambling here in the Commonwealth. More and more horse trainers are headed to the out of state tracks who boost racing purses with the casino monies. McGee is one of the good guys in horse racing...doing it the right way and devoid of the arrogant and superior attitude some trainers possess. Hanging in here despite dwindling purses and smaller fields.

As Mark Twain once said:

"When the world comes to an end, I want to be in Kentucky...because they're 20 years behind the rest of the nation."
