The accolades continue to add up for University of Louisville women's basketball star Shoni Schimmel.

The sophomore from Oregon was second leading scorer for the Cards in 2010-11 with 15.5 points a game and led the team in assists.

Two other former Kentucky girls high school basketball stars join her on The Sporting News second team. A'dia Mathies, a junior UK guard from Louisville Iroquois and Notre Dame and Lexington Catholic star Natalie Novosel also received second team honors. 

The Sporting News also picked the Cards to finish ninth in the nation. Notre Dame was selected #1, followed by Baylor and Connecticut. UK was placed 18th. 

The Cards will begin practice on Oct. 4th. and can start conditioning and other work beginning this week. They'll face Lindsey Wilson in an exhibition contest Oct. 30th.


The University of Louisville Field Hockey squad got two goals from Elizabeth Vance and whitewashed the Appalachian State Mountaineers 6-0 Sunday at Trager Stadium. The Cards (4-2) struck early with three goals in the first 13 minutes of action...Dominique Pasqualichio, Erin Schneidtmiller and Amber Thomas finding the net. Louisville added a fourth goal near the end of the first half when Vance tapped in a missed shot by Heather Stevens.

The Cards added two goals in the final half when Vance picked up her second score on an assist from Hayley Turner and Michelle Amon recorded her first score of the year from a Jacque Gerrick pass.

Erin Conrad had four saves to go with her shut-out goalkeeping and the Cards out shot App. St. (0-5) 25-6.
