Wrapping US Swimming Championships...The Cardinal Couple Radio Hour -- SUNDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


The US Championships swimming event in Indianapolis has wrapped up, and two Cardinals will be representing the US at the World Championships in Budapest thanks to their performances.

Former Card Kelsi Worrell will be participating in the 4x100 Freestyle Relay, as well as her signature events, the 50 Butterfly, and the 100 Fly.  Rising Junior Mallory Comerford will be swimming in her signature event, the 100 Free, as well as the 4x200 Free Relay.

Overall in the event, UofL had a number of former and current swimmers participating.  While we here at Cardinal Couple make frequent mention of Comerford and Worrell, because they fall in our focus of UofL women's athletics, and they're just dominating the sport for UofL currently, we should give a tip of the hat to the other athletes participating.

The other athletes participating were Rachel Bradford Feldman (200 Breast, 400 IM, 200 IM), Avery Braunecker (50 Free), Casey Franz (100 Back, 50 Back, 100 Free, 50 Free), Gracie Long (200 IM, 50 Free), Hannah Magnusson (50 Fly, 100 Fly), Grace Oglesby (50 Fly, 100 Fly, 200 Fly, 200 IM), Sofie Underdahl (50 Back, 100 Back, 200 Back), Lainey Visscher (50 Fly, 50 Back, 50 Free, 100 Free), Andrea Cottrell (50 Breast, 100 Breast, 200 Breast).

On the men's side, Keegan Foulke (200 Breast, 400 IM), Zach "Batman" Harting (200 Fly, 200 Free,
50 Fly, 100 Fly), Jarrett Jones (200 Fly, 400 IM), Todd Owen (200 Breast), Sam Steele (200 Free), Jonathan Zoucha (200 Breast, 200 IM), Nick Albiera - son of Head Coach Arthur Albiero, who decided to just try every event (200 Fly, 100 Free, 200 Back, 50 Fly, 100 Fly, 50 Back, 100 Back, 200 IM), and Trevor Carroll (50 Free, 100 Free, 200 Free).

The World Championships will be held in Budapest, Hungary, from July 14th through 30th, starting just two weeks from now.

We, of course, will be sure to let you know how Kelsi and Mallory do in their events when they happen.



THE CARDINAL COUPLE RADIO HOUR yesterday. Joining Paulie, Worldwide and Julie the Bird Lady in studio was sportscaster Daryl Foust and we had an interview with Sara Hammond.
We had what we think was an excellent show on

Daryl epitomizes the word "busy". She call UofL sporting events on the ACC Network Extra, does video at Louisville Bats games, writes for The Crunch Zone, co-hosts Kentucky Women Talk Sports and even finds time to umpire softball. She had a rapt and fascinated studio hanging on every word yesterday as she filled us in on what she does.

Sara is adjusting to life in Jackson, TN quite well as the assistant women's basketball coach at Union
University. She filled us in on how that job came about, her duties and days, her thoughts on her team and the 2017-18 UofL WBB squad and even a great place to eat in Jackson! She's all about the" hard work" as well and gave us great insight into where she's at in her life these days.

Thanks to both for coming on board with us. It was one of those days where we wished we had a 2 hour show instead of 60 minutes. If you missed the broadcast, you can catch the replay at the link below:

  1. Great radio show guys! Paulie, I'm no expert on stuff like this but I've found that land line to land line recording efforts are usually clearer and less fading.

    -- The Real Joe Hill --

  2. It's an area that I do have some expertise in, and...yes, you're right. I could go into some considerable detail as to why, but I won't afflict you all with that.

    Alas, when we are reaching out to people to do interviews, it's not always possible to arrange that.

  3. I put some of it on me, I could have called on a land-line...but didn't. I'm pretty sure she has an office phone as well. still, it was a pleasure to talk with her and a good time.


  4. Enjoyed listening to Daryl. What ACC sports does she announce?

    1. Her specialty is Softball, but I've seen her at Volleyball that I know of...and probably others that I haven't particularly taken note of. It sounds like she'll be around quite a few sports this year.

    2. She also did WSOC last year that I remember and possibly field hockey.
