Women's Golf and The Cardinal Couple Radio Hour Podcast -- Sunday Cardinal Couple

A Golf Goodbye?  Not So Much

The past few weeks, I've transcribed (from the graphic format posted on social media) the "Thank Yous" posted by the UofL Women's Basketball Seniors.  I thought that line of items was done, but then I saw a post by UofL Women's Golf with a message from Lauren Hartlage.

It was a pleasant surprise then, when I read it, and it wasn't a message of Thanks and Goodbye, but instead a notice of her intent to return to the links wearing Cardinal red and black.

Golf, despite having a significant official schedule in the fall, is considered a spring sport by the NCAA, and the bulk of the spring portion of the season has been impacted by Covid-19, and as such, Golf seniors, such as Hartlage, are being granted the opportunity to return for another season of play.

Lauren is one of the better players to come through the Louisville program and has prospects of playing on the LPGA tour as a professional, but has decided to return to UofL for another season.

Hartlage's message:

Dear #CardNation

Being a Louisville Cardinal the past four years has been the best experience of my life.  We have made great progress as a team and this year was no different.  As our season came to an abrupt end this spring, I was devastated not to get the chance to finish my senior season.  When the NCAA announced that they would be granting spring seniors and extra year of eligibility, I knew this would be something I would want to consider.  After talking with my parents and coaches, I have decided to return to the University of Louisville for one last year.  I can't wait to tee it up next season and continue to represent the best university in the country!

Thank you CardNation for your support and #GoCards

I'm sure head coach Whitney Young, who will we be starting only her 2nd season as a golfing head coach was thrilled to hear of Hartlage's decision to return to UofL Golf, whenever such a season might occur.  Her return should bolster the prospect of the UofL program.

Cardinal Couple Radio Hour Podcast

A "full house" for the CCRH Podcast yesterday.  Jared got a break from the bank and joined Paulie, Case and myself for the hour.  As always, it's good to have the extra voice, perspective, and insights on the show.

The big topic was the layoffs and furloughs announced in UofL Athletics this week and prospects for playing fall sports.  It was a good discussion, albeit without a great deal of joy and excitement to share, though we did find a few bright spots.

Apologies for the 1:20 of silence at the start of the show. Our producer was asleep at the switch and finally figured out that our talking wasn't getting heard. It takes a village...

It happens every Saturday at 11 a.m.  We go to Skype and spend roughly an hour on UofL women's sports. We hope you enjoy the weekly "discussions". 

Check it out!

  1. Paulie asks good questions. Whether it's a post game with Walz or an interview with a player or coach he does a nice job of getting relevant info plus keeps it light also.
