A disappointing finish for Henderson in Discus -- SUNDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


Emmonnie Henderson finished her run in the 2016 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championship with the discus throw...coming in 22nd. out of the 24 throwers. 

Her coach, Dale Cowper, was philosophical about the finish: 

"Today was a disappointment, to say the least. Emmonnie is simply better than her performances over the week represent. We'll regroup and build a different set of results next time." 

'Next time' appears most likely to be her senior season at Louisville since none of her throws in the shot put or discus over the last month match the qualifying numbers for the US Olympic team. July 1-10 will be the last chance for participants to achieve qualifying numbers for the squad...currently the qualifying standard is 57 meters in the discus and 17.6 meters in the shot put. 

Henderson threw a 49.66 in the discus yesterday and 16.37 in the shot put there is work to be done. Her best throw this season in the shot was 16.55 meters. 

Still arguably the best women's field performer in the history of Louisville women's track and field, we hope "E" can continue to improve and rejoin the nation's best in the events. 



In case you've stopped by looking for the link for this week's CARDINAL COUPLE RADIO HOUR...we did not do a show due to conflicts with the station's involvement in the MIGHTY KINDNESS EARTH DAY event yesterday at the Waterfront Park. Paulie was able to get a pre-recorded half-hour of HANDICAPPING HEROES to the station and it was broadcast at noon yesterday. 

Apologies to those who we informed it would run at 11. It is available on the Crescent Hill Radio

We will offer to call you on the phone or stop by and discuss Louisville women's sports and give you a quiz if you missed our weekly broadcast of The CARDINAL COUPLE RADIO HOUR that much, though. It may be one of the Cardinal Couple chimps dialing or showing have banana pudding at the ready. 

We'll see you on the radio on the 18th. 



  1. What's the possibility/probability that "E" joins the WBB team this upcoming season?

    1. Anything is possible but I think the probability of that is very remote. She still has a season to participate in track/field and I would venture that's where her efforts would be.


    2. There is no room on the roster for her. We already have players that won't see the floor much with the surplus.
