More on Megan Deines...busy weekend for UofL women's sports


Welcome to the weekend...we're glad you made it!

-Deines "fell in love with Louisville"

-From Pat...

-Field Hockey faces Missouri State

-Volleyball to Ohio

-Women's Soccer travels to Lexington to face Cats...#1 Men's soccer hosts IUPUI

CARDINAL COUPLE got the link to this great article about 2012 WBB verbal Megan Deines and had to share it with you, our readers...

Glendale senior Megan Deines knew. After her visit to Louisville on August 26th, she was scheduled for several more trips...beginning the following weekend.

"The next weekend I was supposed to leave for Nebraska. My parents asked me what I wanted to do and I knew exactly where I wanted to go, so there was no need for me to go on my next four official visits." she told KSPR reporter Mike Scott.

Deines (left) goes into her senior season as
an All-State selection from last year.
Those visits included planned trips to Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Missouri and Kansas State. Deines, who goes by part of her middle name "Lucie", also visited Drury.

Louisville came in late on the recruiting process, but Deines said she knew it was the place for her.

"I fell in love with everything there, the coaches, players, facilities and the program that they have really put the cherry on top." Megan revealed.

Deines was a Class 5, 1st team, All-State selection as a junior and was also named Ozark Conference Player of the Year, averaging 20 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists per game for the 10th ranked Lady Falcons. She has started each of her first three seasons at Glendale.

Lucie actually grew up in France where her father Jim played professional basketball for 2 decades. She will officially sign her letter of intent during the November signing period. 


When WE heard about Tennessee women's basketball head coach Pat Summitt's disclosure of her early onset dementia, WE dropped her a line to let her know we were in her corner. Both of Paul's parents experienced the same and WE know how life can be when it strikes. A few days ago, we were surprised to receive this letter back from Pat.

No matter what jersey we wear, team name we yell or colors we wave...I think it's safe to say that we all are Lady Vols this season...and for as long as Pat continues to coach.


Louisville Field Hockey faces two foes this weekend...Missouri State in town for a Friday afternoon battle at the Trager that begins at 3 p.m. The Bears are 1-2 on the year, with losses to Indiana and St. Louis. Louisville comes into the contest 2-2 after splitting their North Carolina trip with a win over Davidson and overtime loss to Wake Forest. As we mentioned in an earlier article this week, if you are headed down to Papa John's Stadium to catch the football Cards play FIU tonight...why not go a little earlier and catch some exciting field hockey action? The "Flock" will also host Appalachian State Sunday at 3 p.m. Sweep the weekend, ladies!


Volleyball takes to the Interstate again after an almost inexplicable loss to UK on Wednesday. We have no doubts, though...that Anne Kordes will get the wide netters fired back up and they'll do well in their first match of the Bobcat Classic against Ohio today.
They'll also face Virginia and Marshall on Saturday.

Hopefully the Cards will hold up OK during the matches...the roster at a less than full capacity with just nine players and both Taylor Brauneis and Kaitlynn James nursing nagging injuries. Doubtful that they'll face anyone else this year that is in the class of Kentucky...expect for possibly let's get those wins chalked up and show why you're the #1 ranked team in the BIG EAST! 


Women's soccer hits the road also...travelling to Lexington for two games this weekend. They start out with a tough one against Kentucky today. The Cats are 5-0 and coming off wins over Baylor and Central Michigan...two teams that have beaten Louisville this year.
The Cards will also face Butler in Lexington on Sunday. Tough sledding so far this year for Karen Ferguson's squad...but an upset win over Kentucky would cure a lot of woes...

The #1 ranked men's soccer team (2-1) will try to shake off the recent loss to North Carolina in this afternoon's game vs. IUPUI at Cardinal Park 5 p.m. If you're really adventure-seeking, hit Field Hockey today at 3...Men's Soccer at 5 and Football at 7.

And sleep really well tonight...
