Golf and Track & Field Academic Awards -- WSoc Commits Earn Praises -- FRIDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

Five Golfers Named to All-ACC Academic Team

Olivia Cason, Lauren Hartlage, and Molly Skapik were named to the All-ACC Academic Women's Golf  Team.

Cason heads into her senior season with a 3.503 GPA.  Hartlage is a rising junior and holds a high 3.983 GPA.  Skapik recently graduated and finished her career at Louisville with a 3.66 GPA.  All three are business majors, one of the toughest schools at UofL.

To be eligible for consideration for the All-ACC Academic Team, a student-athlete, regardless of classification, must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during her academic career.

On the men's side of things Simon Zach and Matthias Schmid were named to the All-ACC Academic Team.

Zach is a rising senior and Schmid is set to begin his sophomore year.  Their GPA's were not listed, but both met the qualifications of the 3.00 GPA.

Two Track and Field Stars Named Academic All-Americans

Kassidy Manning and Joe Delgado were named to the 2017-18 Google Cloud Academic All-American Cross Country/Track and Field Team.  Both were third team selections.

Manning just completed her junior year with a perfect 4.0 GPA in accounting.  Delgado is a graduate student and is majoring in urban planning with a 3.67 GPA.  Both were listed on the UofL AD Honor Roll.

Two Women's Soccer Signees Named Gatorade Players of the Year

Cassie Amshoff and Delaney Snyder were named Gatorade Players of the Year.  The award, which names one player from each state, selects players based on athletic and academic excellence as well as exemplary character demonstrated.

Amshoff is a midfielder and forward from Sacred Heart here in town.  She led the Valkyries to the state championship game.  Snyder comes from Moon Area High School (Penn.) and led her team to an undefeated season and state championship.

What Day is it?

Well, first off, with yesterday being the longest day of daylight of the year we will start seeing the sun set earlier each day from now on, sadly.

If you like food it is National Chocolate Eclair Day and National Onion Rings Day.  Both sound delicious.  For us crazy guys here at Cardinal Couple it is a national holiday for us- National Stupid Guy Thing Day!  Well, that might just be me, but definitely an exciting day.

Happy Friday and Go Cards!
