More details on Lady Cards Canada excursion...Polly Harrington lands at a juco


-Cards also headed to Pendleton

-Polly Harrington back home

Jeff Walz has given a few more details about the Lady Cards trip to Canada. Speaking with Drew Deener on The Early Birds radio show on WKRD, Walz related that the team is meeting in Portland, Oregon on August 4th. and will then head to Pendleton, Oregon for a day and half of clinics.

After the Pendleton visit, the team will return to Portland and then it's off to Vancouver for ten days and three basketball games. Walz commented that one of the main purposes of the trip was to build on team chemistry, getting to know each other better off the court and team building. He also was pleased with the team's 10 days of practice and June and a chance to get to see the incoming freshmen interact and play against the returning starters and players for 2010-11.

After the trip, the players will have a week or so to go home if they choose and then reunite on campus beginning August 20th.

Walz was asked about pre-season rankings... the Cards have been ranked as high as fifth in some preseason polls...and while Walz agrees that it is a nice honor to have...he told Deener that it doesn't really mean anything if you don't live up to them.

(Thanks to Jeff S. for the 'tip' on the broadcast info. You can hear Walz's comments by accessing , clicking on The Early Birds under SHOWS and then scrolling down to The Early Birds 7.7 Hour 3. You have to listen to some Pat Forde first...but
he isn't half bad when it comes to recruiting info. If you choose to fast forward to the Walz is at the very end of hour 3.  We listened to the entire hour...Deener's show is always entertaining and he lets the guests speak...a refreshing change in sports radio.)


Former UofL Lady Cards WBB player Polly Harrington has landed at Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kansas and will play for the Cavaliers, according to head coach Ben Conrad.

"We're so excited to add Polly to the mix here. She is a very talented player, but more importantly, she is a very mature and tough-minded player. Her influence on our team will be felt immediately." Conrad related.

Harrington played in 16 games at Louisville in her freshman season and averaged 1.8 points and 0.7 boards. She had a successful high school career at Hickman Mills, KS. Her team was 91-20 during her four years of high school hoops.


  1. I liked Polly, but I am curious about her weight. Did she play high school ball that heavy, or did she add it after high school.

  2. Looks like all the Lady Cards are going to go "On the Rez" in August.
