Hartlage Advances -- Manatee win showdown with Mocs -- FRIDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


Our mission here at Cardinal Couple is to bring you the joy and excitement of UofL women's athletics. That mission has been a bit difficult over the past few months, but we got great news on The Galt House's huge donation yesterday and have some great news on the success and pursuits of a few UofL women's athletes today!  

Louisville women's golf student-athlete Lauren Hartlage pulled off what you might consider an upset when she knocked off the #3 seed in the round of 32 yesterday at Pinehurst. Hartlage had barely made the cut after two days, getting the #30 seed, but entered match play yesterday and came through with the "W". .

She knocked off Sadie Englemann (who has signed a letter of intent to attend Stanford this fall) in match play yesterday on the 17th hole of their match, with a birdie on the par 3, to go up three stokes with just one hole to play and effectively end the match. 

Hartlage advances to take on #14 seed Emilia Miglioccio (Wake Forest) today in an off-season ACC showdown. Miglioccio was 3 up on her opponent yesterday with two holes to play to get the win. They tee off at 7:40 this morning. 

Only three of the top ten seeds in match play advanced yesterday...#1 and #2...surviving. Englemann was the best-seeded golfer to fall yesterday in match play.

Here's hoping Lauren can shoot her way to "the Great Eight" today at Pinehurst! 


In a showdown between the top two teams in the FGCL yesterday, the home-standing Manatee Squeeze took a 2-1, extra innings win over league-leading Myakka City River Mocs yesterday. 

Manatee used a bottom of the eighth inning single from Sara Berthiaume (FAU) to plate Abi Stuart (Clemson) for the walk-off win.

Louisville softball student-athlete Jordyn Wolfe started for Manatee in right field and went 1-3 in the game. She singled in the sixth inning to start a Manatee rally but was forced out at second on a fielder's choice. Wolfe also reached base in the first inning on a River Mocs fielding error but was left stranded on the base paths.

Cardinal Paige Schindler did not appear in the contest. 

With the win, Manatee improves to 15-5 on the season and drops Myakka City to 19-2. 

Have a fun Friday while staying safe and sanitizing. Wear a mask, despite what our state's attorney general says. We don't want to lose any readers or see you ill. We're all in this together.   



  1. Great going Lauren! Keep it up!

    So, the River Mocs are beatable. Keep up that Manatee. How's Wolfe and Schindler doing overall in the league>

  2. Hang in there Lauren. Last time I checked, she and Emilia were tied after 11 holes.
