Field Hockey ranked #12 in NFHCA Preseason Poll -- 6th in ACC


We've said it before and we'll continue to say it.

ACC Field Hockey is one tough league. 

The ACC and NFHCA polls (National Field Hockey Coaches Association to clarify) were released within hours of each other Tuesday and the Cards were #12 nationally and # 6 in the ACC. 

Senior midfielder Elisa (Chile) Garcia and sophomore midfielder/forward Nicole Woods were selected to the Preseason All-ACC squad. 

All seven ACC teams are in the top 13 nationally. UNC grabbed the #2 spot behind Connecticut and Duke is #4.

The Cards open their regular season Friday night with a 6:30 match against Appalachian State in The Trager. 

The Cards have been impressive in the preseason, as my steamed colleague Worldwide pointed out in yesterday's article. Buoyed by his stellar PA duties on Sunday, the Stick Swinging Cards romped the alumnae 7-1. Equally impressive was the 4-0 win over #17 Iowa in the exhibition Saturday. 

Admission is free for Louisville Field Hockey. In this...the 2015 Year Of The Fan as proclaimed by Tom Jurich and the athletic department...get yourself out to Trager and be one. It's about to get real on Warnock...



  1. So Worldwide is calling Field Hockey and Volleyball now? Sean Moth better look out. It goes to show what I've known all along. Worldwide is the talent at Cardinal Couple and Paulie the bag lady. Can it be just a matter of time before he breaks out on his own and starts his own site. In his submarine and periscope?

    A little Wednesday morning fun, gentleman. Thanks for what you do and keep up the good work. Paulie, I hope things are OK with your mother-in-law. I have enjoyed talking with her over the years and if their is any I can do, let me know.

    --The Real Joe Hill --

    1. Thanks, Joe. I'm sure Worldwide and his 20 electrical devices appreciate it as well. Thanks for the kind words about Amy. The aging process can be a cruel and unforgiving mistress at times. We're dealing and coping.
