Lacrosse announces fall schedule....Field Hockey Clinic planned...More on Field Hockey


-Lacrosse to play seven times in October.

-Fall Field Hockey clinic set.

-Sowry getting it done in first season.

The Louisville women's lacrosse squad has a busy October of fall ball ahead. Head coach Kellie Young's Cardinals will take to the field nine times in October...including five road trips to Pennsylvania, Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Annapolis. 

The schedule:

Oct. 2:   Ohio State & Northwestern @ Indianapolis
Oct. 8:   Cincinnati & Detroit @ Cincinnati
Oct. 15:  at Annapolis for Navy Fall Invitational
Oct. 22:  ALUMNI GAME (banquet to follow)
Oct. 23:  Bellarmine (Friends of Jaclyn - Battle of the Sexes)
Oct. 29:  at Penn Invitational
Oct. 30:  at Temple

The 2011 squad finished with a respectable 10-7 record despite getting off to a slow start against some very tough competition. The Cards won eight out of their final nine games. Graduated is all-time leading scorer Began Foley...but second team all-west/Midwest Region Katie Oliverio returns...along with starting goalkeeper Ashley Herbst. The Cards also add nine freshmen to the roster.


The Louisville Field Hockey team will hold the 2011 Field Hockey Clinic on Oct. 7th. from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. at Trager Stadium. The clinic is open to players in grades 9 through 12 and will be conducted by staff and players from the Cards field hockey team. Cost is $20.

Speaking of Field Hockey, first year head coach Justine Sowry has quietly built up an impressive record so far with The Flock. Louisville is 7-3 and 1-1 in BIG EAST play. The Cardinal defensive has been particulary impressive, pitching shutouts four times this season and allowing only three goals in their last six games. 

Louisville has eight games remaining on the schedule...four of those conference foes in Connecticut, Rutgers, Providence and Villanova. The Cards will also face Ohio State, Drexel, Indiana and Northwestern before the BIG EAST Tournament at Syracuse in early November.

Oct 8:   Rutgers
Oct 21: Providence
Oct 23: Indiana

The Cards have outscored their opponents 30-13 so far this year and Hayley Turner leads the team with seven goals. Rock steady goalkeeper Erin Conrad protects the net and Lacey Jurich and Caitlin Collins have performed well this year to make sure Conrad doesn't have to defend too many shots on goal.
