We think Mink is a fab frosh!  
Ranked #6 in the nation...after the poll that came out today... Louisville Field Hockey squad is lighting up the NCAA DI statistics as well. 

Freshman Minout Mink is tied for eighth in the nation with 1.33 goals per game. She's scored eight times for the Cards in six games. She's the only freshman in the top ten nationally. Erin McCrudden is tied for second in the nation with 1.33 assists per game. The Cards are tied for fourth in the nation in scoring per game with 4.64 goals per contest and leads the nation in margin of victory at 4.14 per match.  

Sophomore goalkeeper Ayeisha McFerran leads the nation in save percentage at .857. She has 12 saves and just two goals allowed. 

The Cards are one of nine teams still undefeated on the year (stats are through 9/11). Three other ACC squads (Duke, Syracuse and North Carolina) have unblemished marks also. 

The Cards face #2 Duke on Friday evening in Trager Stadium at 6 p.m. The ACC is VERY strong this year with #1 ranked Syracuse, #2 Duke, #3 UNC and #6 Louisville. When you consider that Virginia, Boston College and Wake Forest are in the top 20 also...the Cards have their work cut out for them ahead. 

Admission is free to all UofL Field Hockey events...concessions and beverages are available and the weather looks pretty decent for Friday evening...with only a 10% chance of rain. Why not roll out for this one? 



  1. Great non-conference start for Field Hockey. How will they do in the ACC Paulie

  2. You interrupted my afternoon nap for this? (J/K)...They'll have (6) ACC games. Starting with Duke at Trager...which I see as a toss up. They go to Wake Forest an that's one I think they will win. They travel to Syracuse...a strong Orange squad and I'll give them the edge. Boston College comes to Trager...I think the Cards win this one. UNC comes here but they're pretty tough...going with UNC in this one. Final ACC game is at Virginia...UofL lost there last time and I think we get a bit of revenge and win. So, a very shaky 4-2 in conference play.

    Naturally I'd love to see 6-0.
