Tuesday, September 24, 2019



Last night, on campus in the Student Activities Center Ballroom, the University of Louisville was host to ESPN CAMPUS CONVERSATIONS. The enrichment program is designed for women student-athletes and has a main purpose of preparing them for success after graduation.

An overflowing crowd for the event heard several speakers who began around 5:30 p.m. Monday.

ESPN has teamed up with different athletic departments over the past few years for the event and it was UofL's turn last night to host the ongoing activity. 

The event was moderated by ESPN'S Sarah Spain. Sarah is a ESPN sports reporter who serves as a ESPNW columnist, ESPN radio host and SportsCenter reporter.

The panelists were excellent. 

Jenna Ahern, UofL field hockey great who also founded and is CEO of Guardian Owl Digital, Dr. Lecia Brown, who excelled at track and volleyball at UofL and is currently a research and developer for pharmaceutical giant GSK, Kelly McClain, another Cardinal Volleyball star who now is a vice-president in Wealth Management at Fifth/Third Bank and Amy Rosenfeld, senior producer for ESPN. 

Vince Tyra and Dr. Neeli Bendaputi also spoke to the attendees. 

The panel discussion, which started around 7 p.m., was one of the highlights of the evening. Plenty of student-athletes from all women's sports programs at UofL were in attendance for last night's seminar. 

Life beyond graduation can be a daunting thing. Anyone who has ever had any doubts about it, though, got some very sound and usable advice from a blue-ribbon panel of women who have met the challenge and excelled. We refer to those who give their all to sports on the Belknap Campus as athletes...but the preface "student" is just as an important description to what they are and that should never be forgotten.
