Hannah File Joins Softball Roster
Louisville softball added a graduate transfer to the team in Hannah File. File comes to Louisville after having spent three seasons with James Madison University from 2018-2020. During her time with the Dukes, File helped the team advance to an NCAA Super Regional and carried a .325 career batting average.
"Hannah has such positive energy about her, and she truly loves the game," said Coach Holly Aprile. "Those are two genuine qualities that we value very highly. She carries herself with a confidence and attitude that we are excited to coach and we cannot wait to get started."
Besides being a strong hitter, File was a two-year starter in the infield. In her career with JMU, she recorded 88 hits with 32 of them being extra base hits. File recorded 62 RBIs and 53 walks. She also limited her double whammies by grounding into just one double play in her career.
Defensively, File had a .912 field percentage. After a season where infield errors were the Achilles Heel of the Cards and the graduation of Maddy Newman, Louisville is looking for an infielder with a clean glove.
File will work on her MBA at UofL's high-ranking business school while playing out her last year (or two if she wishes) of eligibility.
Women's Basketball Season Tickets on Sale
The KFC Yum! Center will be at 100% capacity and season tickets for women's basketball have gone on sale. Plenty of people took a hiatus last season with the COVID-19 pandemic but UofL has said that you will not be punished if you renew this season. It's also never too late to register for season tickets for the first time if you have never had them before.
Who wouldn't want to go see one of the best women's basketball programs out there? It's a stacked roster of returners with some new extremely talented faces joining the them. Jeff Walz is 15 wins shy of 400 wins at Louisville.
Maybe you can sweet talk Paulie into buying you season tickets? He's a big baller with that Cardinal Couple budget. For you newer readers, Cardinal Couple is a non-profit website so we can't actually afford to buy you season tickets.
However, Worldwide usually has season tickets with his mom and they are a hoot to sit by!
On a side note, I want to take a moment to congratulate all the UofL baseball players taken in the MLB Draft. The Cards also had their first ever #1 overall pick in Henry Davis, Alex Binelas, who is no stranger on UofL volleyball matches to see his girlfriend Claire Chausee play, was taken in the third round. As of last night, six Cards had been drafted.
Happy Tuesday and Go Cards!
