Ky. Softball Sweet Sixteen set

(Your co-owner and managing editor of CARDINAL COUPLE enjoys a photo op recently. Not sure what the photog told her...maybe that Paul had learned to load the dishwasher by himself or weather was going to be in the low eighties in Louisville today)

The field has been set for the 2010 Kentucky State Softball Sweet Sixteen. Double elimination actions begins Friday, June 11th. in Owensboro, KY.

Two Louisville area teams made the cut. 7th region champ Mercy will face Scott County in first round play and 6th region winner Pleasure Ridge Park gets Ryle to face off against. Other first round matchups:

Lawrence County vs. Shelby County
Green County vs. Reidland
Ashland Blazer vs. Clark County.
North Laurel vs. Allen County-Scottsville
Jenkins vs. Somerset
Christian County vs. Owensboro Catholic

The championship game is scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday.


Looks like an all Pac-10 final for the NCAA Division 1 Womens' Softball World Series. UCLA eliminated Georgia by winning 5-2 yesterday and Arizona defeated Tennessee twice to make the finals 8-0 and 5-2. This is the seventh time that these two teams have faced each other in the championships. Arizona has won four of the previous six.

The best of three series starts next Monday in Oklahoma City.


We'll root on the home team this evening out at Jim Patterson Stadium and Louisville and Vanderbilt square off in the deciding game of the NCAA Baseball Regional. The Cards could have eliminated the Commodores yeserday with a win...but fell 7-0 to the two hit pitching of seldom used Richie Goodenow.

Game time is 6 p.m. Tickets are available on a walk up basis at Patterson. If you can't make the action...the broadcast can be heard locally on 1570 AM WNDA. Good luck with that...we listened as best we could yesterday for awhile and the feed sounded like a room full of sewing machines outside a Indy qualifying heat in a thunderstorm. Play by play announcer Sean Moth deserves better than that.
