Photo Highlights: Softball
The team I had the least opportunity to shoot this year was softball. They had four home games right before everything came crashing and burning with COVID-19. I captured the first two innings of their home opener and most of their second game. Katy was in town for a grad school interview that weekend so I decided to focus my time on her instead.
Side note: Katy got into Louisville Presbyterian Seminary with full tuition and housing coverage, and will be working on a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy. So, thank you all for your best wishes a few weeks ago!
To add to the few photos I did go back to a couple fall ball scrimmages I captured as well.
Sadly, we saw very little of softball, just like lacrosse. I do hope the NCAA makes the right decision on granting all of the spring sports student-athletes with an extra year of eligibility. Both Funke and Fergie (Ferguson) would love to come back.
There was a tele-conference with Dana Evans yesterday that Paulie phoned in to and asked some questions. A lot of subjects were covered.
For the life of me, I cannot figure out why some of the so-called "journalists" in our city deemed it appropriate to focus on, and kept digging at the subject of the WNBA.
Nothing to see here. Move along. such "yellow' journalism is sad and reflects on the nature of the ne'er-do-wells asking such stupid questions. Here was a perfect opportunity to talk about all the accomplishments Dana has aceheived in three years and they go for controversy.
I like Paulie's response on Twitter:
"Dana not going anywhere. Don't get caught up in the hype. Angel and Asia stayed for their senior seasons and they were more highly regarded than Dana."
Although she is quite the basketball player, she IS NOT in the "Holy Trinity" of the three Cardinal WBB players widely recognized to be the best to don a UofL WBB jersey:
Angel, Asia and Shoni.
Did they leave early? Nope. Ms. Evans would be wise to return for her senior year and build upon the remarkable accomplishments she has already earned at UofL. There may not be a WNBA season this summer/fall. I feel confident she'll "make the right decision".
Remember, these "experts" also had Jeff Walz gone to Tennessee. Last I checked, he's still playing UNO with his wife and kids in Louisville, KY. I look forward to see Dana playing her senior season at UofL.

Remember to stay safe and keep practicing good hygiene.
Happy Thursday and Go Cards!
