Five to remember from 2014 -- Friday Cardinal Couple


As we wind down 2014 -- let's take a look at five players who left some long lasting memories on UofL women's sports during the last 12 months. 

Erin Yenney -- Soccer 

"Yen" was a four year starter and stalwart at midfielder for the Karen Ferguson-Dayes soccer team. Her role as one of the few seniors on a freshman and sophomore laden team was one of guidance, leadership and inspiration. She was second on the squad with shots-on-goal and led the team in shots. Her shoes will be big ones to fill...

Katie George -- Volleyball

The Louisville native was everywhere on the court as the team's primary setter...she was the one responsible for tracking down the Cards less than perfect passing so the Cards could score. An AVCA All-East Region selection, she returns for her senior year to lead a team that went through a learning season in the ACC.

Nikki Boltja -- Lacrosse

The senior scoring machine helped lead Kellie Young's squad to a perfect Big East season and trip to the NCAA Tournament. Young calls her the hardest working, most dedicated player she has ever coached and this year's team will get to reap those skills again this Boltja has been added to the Lacrosse staff as a program assistant.

Alyssa Voelmle -- Field Hockey

The heart and soul of Justine Sowry's defensive squad...Vo
elmle was the guiding force behind the UofL point preventers that took the team to the NCAA Tournament. A key contributor on UofL's corner attack offense, the senior was selected to the First Team All-American squad.

Shoni Schimmel -- Basketball

Fill in your own memories of the four year career of the prolific, dynamic guard. I'll contribute two...shooting the Cards back into the Maryland game and almost putting the Cards into the 2014 Final Four and "the layup" against Griner.

All five were aided by the outstanding team and coaching support that surrounded them. Their accomplshments at UofL will last a long time.


  1. I would add the incredible story of Nita Slaughter to those five.

    Festive Festivus and Happy New Year CC!

    The Real Joe Hill

    1. My sentiments exactly!!! Go Nita!! What a job with honorable mention to Tia!

  2. Paulie, do the Cards WBB have radio coverage anywhere?

    1. In the Louisville area the games are on WKRD 790 AM. Out of town listeners can tune in through the official athletics website
