Louisville Lacrosse opens season against Vermont -- SATURDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


Leading scorer Koloski back for UofL

The UofL Lacrosse team takes to the Louisville Lacrosse Stadium pitch today for a 1 p.m. match against northern invader Vermont University. With highs expected to rise to the mid-40's...the Cards begin their 2017 season with a wealth of new faces and a return of a few familiar ones. 

Louisville's leading scorer from 2016 Hannah Koloski is back for her senior season. The Lakeville, MN native had 43 goals for the Cards last year. She'll receive help from returnees Heidi Smith, Jillian Balog, Julia Wood and Madison a strong freshman attack class.  Louisville also gets defenders Stephanie McNamara, Emily Howell and goalkeeper Brittany Read back from 2016...Read is fully recovered from a season-ending knee injury and McNamara a member of the All-ACC squad. 

The Cards finished 12-6 last season...advancing to the NCAA Tournament but... hindered by the loss of Read...bowed out in the first round against Northwestern. The Cards raced out to a 12-1 start to the 2016 campaign but lost their final five after losing Read. 
Word is from the Cardinal Lacrosse crew is that Read is fully recovered from the ACL injury and eager to get back out between the pipes and defend the net. 

The Cards will look to a talented freshman class and the returnees from 2016 to replace a couple of the greatest LAX players in UofL history in Kaylin Morissette and Cortnee Daley. Kelli Gerding has also graduated...but head Coach Kellie Young is hopeful and optimistic about the new and returning talent on the roster...and is pleased with the competition for the openings in the lineup. 

Vermont faces the Cards for the first time and went 6-10 in 2016. The Catamounts return 27 letter-winners and their leading scorer Alex Bernier.

We'll be in attendance for the contest and will have a full report on the action in Sunday's edition of CARDINAL a preview on today's THE CARDINAL COUPLE RADIO HOUR today at 11 a.m.

  1. You can teach them the game, but you can't play the game for them.
    Question: what's worse cortnee not taken a jump shot or BJ shooting one?
