KOLOSKI'S SIX PACK HELPS LAX GET TO 4-0
Louisville Lacrosse jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the first fifteen minutes of Tuesday's lacrosse match in Nashville and Hannah Koloski scored a career high six goals in Louisville's 15-5 win over Vanderbilt.
The Cards struck very early in this one...Cortnee Daley scoring just 16 seconds into action and then Daley connected again with a minute gone in play. By the half, the Cards held a 8-1 lead...Koloski had three scores on board, Kaylin Morissette and Daley had found the net twice and Julia Wood was in the books with one.
Morissette and Daley would finish with four goals each in the rout. The Cards dominated shots on goal 39-19 and a 19-3 advantage in draw controls. Louisville (4-0) got eight saves from Brittany Read in the contest...which was played with a continuous running clock over the final 11 minutes.
A bit of a change in scoring than we usually see out of the Cardinals...with just four players accounting for the 15 scores. Nevertheless, a convincing win and confidence builder for this veteran squad against a quality opponent on the road.
Kellie Young's laxers will start ACC play on Saturday when they host the Boston College Eagles at the Louisville Lacrosse Stadium. First draw is scheduled for noon.
A special congratulations to Kaylin Morissette, who was named to lacrosse's Tewaaraton Award women's watch list. She's one of 50 in consideration for the award that honors the top male and female college lacrosse player in the United States. 18 ACC women are on the list.

A-Tayy has been playing in Israel and South Korea after spending the 2014 season with the Minnesota LYNX. Talk about two powder keg locations to play hoops at!
Taylor was the AAC's most improved player in 2014 while at Louisville and a first-team all-league selection. She also had the most blocked shots for the Cards in the 2013-14 season.
We always felt that A-Tayy deserved and needed another shot at the 'big show' after having to sit on Minnesota's bench behind a deep and talented front line. It's good to see she's getting it and we're ready for a few trips to Indy this summer!
