Friday Cardinal Couple -- Tennis pulls major upset


-Fellerhoff and Shine knock off #4

-Field Hockey faces ODU today in BIG EAST field hockey

-Volleyball hosts Houston tonight

-Shades gets ESPN love

The University of Louisville doubles pair of Julia Fellerhoff and Rebecca Shine upset No .4 seeded Breaunna Addison and Pippa Horn of Texas in their first round of the 2013 USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships at the USTA Billie Jean National King Tennis Center in Flushing, N.Y.

“Excellent win and great way to start the tournament,” said U of L head coach Mark Beckham. “Being able to knock off the No. 4 seed in our first match is going to help with their confidence throughout the rest of the tournament and throughout the rest of the year for that matter. It was a very close match and came down to a few points here and there. When you are playing with the elite of college tennis, every match here is going to be that way. So it was good tot get through it and hopefully they can find a way through it again tomorrow.”

Fellerhoff and Shine will face Sarah Lee and Ronit Yurovsky of Michigan today.


Field Hockey starts BIG EAST Field Hockey Championship play today against ODU in Storrs, CT at 7:30 p.m.

The good news? Louisville defeated ODU in September 3-2 at Trager.

The bad news? ODU hasn't lost since.

Louisville is #14 in the nation and got some nice accolades in their final season in the BIG EAST. Shannon Sloss was named BIG EAST Rookie of the Year. Erin Schneidtmiller and Alyssa Voelmle made the First Team All BIG EAST and Elisa Garcia and Sydney King were named to the second team.

Louisville finished the regular season 15-4. It's the most wins since 2001. The Cards were in a three way tie for the BIG EAST title but got the #3 seed in the tournament as a result of a point system developed for such matters. There is absolutely NO truth to the rumor that Geno Auriemma developed the system. Despite the fact that UConn got the #1 seed and the games are being played in Storrs, CT. (Whistling past the graveyard.) Temple was also invited to play as a #4 seed. They lost to Louisville, UConn and ODU by a combined score of 16-1.


Volleyball is in AAC action at the KFC YUM! Center tonight against Houston. The Wide Net Cards

go for their 12th. straight win in conference play.

Wonder if new mom Anne Kordes will be there? In case you hadn't heard...she gave birth to a young lady named Mary.

First offical recruit of 2031?


The four letter mega-giant (ESPN) has been showing Shoni (Shades) Schimmel some love recently.
