Softball Falls to VT 7-4 -- MONDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


Playing the #3 team in DI Softball can be an arduous task and Louisville fought bravely against those #3 Virginia Tech Hokies...jumping to a 4-3 lead in the top of the third before eventually falling 7-4.

Trailing 3-0 in the top of the third, Louisville went on the offensive and started the inning with a Carmyn Greenwood round-tripper (HER 13TH OF THE SEASON). Korbe Otis reached on an error and Taylor Roby drew a walk to give the Cards two on for Kendall Smith who got Otis home on a ground out. After Dylan Cravens reached on a single, she and Roby both scored on a Hokie fielding miscue. 

The lead was short-lived, though. After Roby gave way to Taja Felder in the circle, Tech tied it back up in the bottom of the fourth. 

The Hokies added three more runs in the bottom of the fourth to make it 7-4. 

The Cards would threaten in the sixth and seventh but could not score again. 

Louisville is now 24-20 on the season and 8-10 in ACC play. That's goof for eighth place in the league. 

The Cards return home for a weekend series next, hosting Virginia. (26-21, 12-9).. The Cavs are fifth in the ACC standings. 

The Cards might not be pennant contenders this season but they are getting some valuable "in circle" experience for pitchers Sam Booe, Payton Hudson and Felder.  With projected starter Gabby Holloway out for the season (bicep), and Chardonnay Harris no longer on the squad... it's good to still have a choice of several arms at the ready to spell Roby. 




  1. why is Chardonnay Harris no longer on the team?

    The only information we’ve been given regarding the situation is that Chardonnay Harris is no longer on the team and left on her own accord sometime between the tail end of March and beginning of April.


  3. Louisville needs to develop that one "go to, automatic win" pitcher. I always thought it would be Roby, but she's shown she is touchable. Maybe Booe? I'd get her a lot of innings in if I were the head coach, as a freshman, she still has a big potential.
