Womens' Cross Country and Golf win titles


-Ex CARDINAL Cindy LaCrosse earns tour card

-Grieshaber win at Evansville

-Angel and Dream play tonight

Former UofL womens' golfer Cindy LaCrosse tied for the title in the Price Chopper Tour Championship with a 72 hole total of 5 under and then won the playoff hole to gain her third Futures tour championship in Albany, NY. By also taking the regular season title, she earned a tour card for the LPGA's 2011 events. Battling windy conditions, LaCrosse fired a 69-70-69 to tie Jennifer Song and force a one hole sudden death playoff which she won with a par on the 18th hole on the Capital Hills golf course. LaCrosse also broke the Futures Tour regular season earnings...winning $94,576 for the year. She finished in the top 10 in 15 tournaments this year. Congratulations, Cindy, on making it to the women's professional circuit!


Kim Grieshaber won the individual women's title and UofL placed first as a team in the Evansville Mid-America Opener to kick off the Louisville cross country season. The redshirt senior covered the 4K course in 14:20. She was 13 seconds ahead of the second place finisher in the race. Louisville runners also placed third, fourth, seventh and eighth in the five team event.

"I'm very pleased with how the women runners executed the race and that they were able to get the team championship." head cross country coach Brice Allen commented. "Our team ran a tactically smart race and Kim won convincingly with a mile to go."

They return to action Sept 16th. when they take part in the Navy Invitational at Annapolis, MD.


Angel McCoughtry and the Atlanta Dream try to go 2-0 in the Eastern Conference Finals tonight in New York. They broke away from the Liberty in the final minute on Sunday to win the first game of the playoffs 81-75. If they can defeat the Liberty, they'll move on to the WNBA Finals to face Western Conference champs Seattle who eliminated Phoenix on Sunday...getting a game winning three ball from Sue Bird with 2 seconds left to win by three.
