Good Friday morning Louisville fans,
It sucks to be the one to report the season ender for any of our favorite programs at UofL... yesterday was a looooooong day out at Ulmer stadium. But at least it was a gorgeous sunny day for everyone to enjoy at the ballpark. A quick recap of the day's games before getting into Louisville's heart breaker.
CLEMSON 2 - GEORGIA TECH 0
The day started out with a great pitchers duel between Clemson/Georgia Tech that ended in a 2-0 win for the Tigers. Made possible only by sending the ball yard twice into right center field, redshirt Junior Cammy Pereira did the damage at the plate for Clemson. Freshman, Valerie Cagle got the win moving her record to 25-4. The ACC Player of the Year, threw her 10th complete-game shutout and matched her career-high 14 strikeouts as the Tigers advanced to the ACC semifinal.
The Cards left runners on in the fifth and the sixth to end their season and hope for an ACC championship. In a shocking turn of events, Celene Funke led the Cards at the plate going 2-3 on the day. Roby takes the loss moving her to a 12-14 record this season. UofL finishes the season with a 21-28-1 record. The roster featured seven seniors this season.
In addition, she was also named to the United Soccer Coaches All-Atlantic Region First Team.
It marks the third straight season that Ekic has been named a USC All-American, as she was named a Second Team All-American following her sophomore and junior campaigns.
