Softball Starts OKC Challenge
Carmyn Greenwood is captain of the red team. Her teammates include Charley Butler, Taja Felder, Caitlin Ferguson, Cassady Greenwood, Payton Hudson, Chardonnay Harris, Elana Ornelas, Jenna Servi, and Jordyn Wolfe.
Maddy Newman is captain of the black team. Her teammates include Lexi Carver, Rebecca Chung, Madison Ciaccio, Celene Funke, Eden Mayo, Taylor Roby, Paige Schindler, and Riley Schindler.
The red team took the win on the first day. Day One featured exercises such as a 400 meter run and hanging from a rope/towel. Pretty much what Paulie does each morning after his third cup of coffee.
Head coach Holly Aprile goes into her second year as Cardinal Softball skipper with optimism but also with a couple of key departures to fill. Circle standout Megan Hensley has graduated, she led Louisville in home runs last year (13) and was third in batting average at ,314. She was 9-4 in her pitching efforts also. Sidney Melton has graduated as well. The excellent third basemen led the Cards in hitting at .338.
If you're hoping for some type of onsite coverage from us at Cardinal Couple I hate to tell you that it won't be happening. The Cards met before 5:48 a.m., and started their event shortly before 6:00. Some of us like our beauty sleep, which, based off the results in the mirror, we need A LOT more of.
Soccer Flies Out to BYU
The Cards, who took down Lipscomb in the first round, advanced to their second ever second round. Props to Coach Karen Ferguson-Dayes. Coach KFD is the only coach in Louisville women's soccer history to lead her team to the NCAA Tournament. Today is a travel day for the team.
As the match gets closer we will give a breakdown and a preview of the match. Paulie is also hoping to get a phone interview with Coach Ferguson Dayes from Provo for Thursday's article .
Paulie also takes an early look at UofL WBB efficiency after three games. Be sure to check out the upcoming editions of Cardinal Couple for that.
Happy Tuesday and Go Cards!
