Field Hockey Honors -- Tuesday Cardinal Couple

Field Hockey Honors

With Field Hockey's appearance in the NCAA tournament, we now have word of All-Region honors for Cardinal Field Hockey players.  Five Cards have received the honor.

Elisa "Chile" Garcia, Paige Monsen and Allysa Voelmle were tabbed for the first team, while Sydney King and Mallory Mason got nods for the second team All-Region.

None of the Cardinal All-Region team honorees are attackers, a testament to the Cardinal defending this season.  Garcia and Monsen are midfielders, while Voelmle and Mason are defenders.  Three of the five, Monsen, Voelmle and Mason, are seniors, while the Field Hockey team will still have the services of Garcia and King for another year.

Sydney King is the Cardinal GoalKeeper and also got a nod on my Cardinal Couple/Worldwide All-Syd team back in September.  King is somewhat unusual by being a west-coast Field Hockey player, hailing from Newport Beach, California.

Garcia was not nicknamed after this delicious

Garcia earned the nickname "Chile" due to Santiago, Chile being her hometown, part of a significant contingent of international players on the Cardinal squad.  I suspect there was also a desire to more easily distinguish between "Elisa" and "Alyssa" which sounds somewhat similar when spoken.

The other three honorees all came to Louisville from the New England area, with Monsen being from Marathon, NY; Voelmle having come from Hershey, PA; and Mason claims Simsbury, CT as her hometown.

Volleyball Time Correction Correction

Last week we brought news of a time change for the Volleyball match vs Duke this Friday the 21st.  There's now a correction to the correction.  The match is now set for a 6pm start at Cardinal Arena.
