Friday Cardinal Couple -- Field Hockey faces ODU...Rowing goes to IU


- BIG EAST opener for Field Hockey at Trager

- Rowing with an exhibition scrimmage @ Bloomington

This should be a good one.

 #19 Louisville Field Hockey hosts #20 Old Dominion Friday night in Trager Stadium @ 6:30 p.m. It's a "black out" dress accordingly. Admission is free.

CAF members can present their CAF Card to the concession stands during the contest and get a free beer or soft drink. What other reason do you need to attend?

Don't let the 1-5 ODU record fool you. The five losses have come to #6 Penn State, #2 Maryland, #7 Virginia, #1 North Carolina and #9 Duke.

Talk about a brutal pre-conference schedule! They did beat American University.

ODU joins the BIG EAST in Field Hockey this season. The other members this year are Louisville, Providence, Villanova, Georgetown, Connecticut, Rutgers and Temple.

Louisville has outscored their opponents 19-8 in amassing a 4-2 record. Freshman Shannon Sloss and junior Alyssa Voelmle lead the Cards with four goals each.

Sophomore goalie Sydney King was named to the BIG EAST Honor Roll in Field Hockey last week. She's allowing 0.5 goals against average.

Come out and support Justine Sowry's "flock". tonight. The Cards also play Sunday 1 p.m. in Trager against Northeastern.


Louisville rowing opens the fall with a scrimmage against IU.

It'll take place Saturday in Bloomington. The teams will conduct a variety of eight-minute races in various boats.

New coach Derek Copeland weighs in:

" After using much of last season discovering who were were as a team and as individual rowers, I think the team is well prepared for the upcoming season...They learned that what we're doing works, so this season, they know they have speed and they have confidence in what they saw last year. We believe that will help us raise our performance to another level."

Start of a busy fall for Louisville rowing. After IU, the Cards host the Red and Black Scrimmage on the Ohio on Oct 5th. Then it is off to Indy for an event, and Charlottesville, Va. ,


WBB has a new clip out. Not sure if I get the meaning of it but I stopped trying to figure out Coach Walz years ago...

Just stand back and let the gentleman do his thing.
