INTERVIEW WITH LOUISVILLE FIELD HOCKEY HEAD COACH JUSTINE SOWRY
I had the pleasure to catch up with University of Louisville's head Field Hockey Coach Justine Sowry on Wednesday via phone and we talked about Louisville Field Hockey.
The "stick girls" will go into action (or at least it's the plan) on the weekend of Sept 26th. when they bring ACC foe Duke to Trager Stadium.
It's a good chat with Coach as we reviewed practice, scheduling, players and the 2019 season. You can hear it at the link below:
Three games in the "wubble" last night -- with one involving a former UofL WBB great.
The Washington Mystics faced league-leading Seattle but could not knock off the Storm -- falling 71-64. Shooting just 26% from three-point range will do that to you. Myisha Hines-Allen had a relatively quiet night with just 20 minutes on the court -- gathering six boards but just two points.
Washington goes to 4-13 on the season and it's getting close to desperation time for the Mystics if they want to make the playoffs.
Minnesota got a win over Chicago 86-83. The Lynx are now 13-5 and the sky 11-8 and both appear to be safe for the playoffs.
The Los Angeles Sparks took a 91-83 win over the Dallas Wings. L.A. is 14-4 and battling for one of the first or second round byes. Dallas drops to 6-12 and holds on to eighth spot (and playoff inclusion) in the league despite the loss.
BELLE LOSES ?
In what has to be considered a huge upset on the Ohio River, the Louisville-based steamboat The Belle of Louisville lost the annual Great Steamboat Race to her sister boat the Mary M. Miller. A usual third participant in the Derby Week event, The Belle of Cincinnati, did not make the trip down to Louisville for the race because of the Coronavirus.
(Handicapper's tip: The Mary M. Miller was the "wise guys" pick because it had regular engines -- the Belle is powered by a paddle-wheel.)
Have a terrific Thursday. It's "Thurby" of Derby Week, but it sure doesn't seem like it.
