No Weekend News for Louisville Women's Athletics

With all but one women's sport having concluded for the 2021-2022 school year, our days of reporting have gone rather quiet this Sunday. Summertime sees us phase away from previewing and recapping games and phase into writing about whatever comes to mind first and getting off-season interviews with players and coaches. 

With the approaching lull, Jeff took the day off from writing so I stepped in to cover for him. He should be back next Sunday.

Louisville track and field will have a couple dozen student-athletes competing in the NCAA Championships beginning later this week. Several of the women's athletes have a strong chance of landing on the podium so we will highlight those as they come along. The opening day of the events will be Wednesday. Case mentioned many of those competing in yesterday's post.

Also, mentioned yesterday, the NCAA Championships for rowing are approaching. Louisville was not one of the 22 teams to receive a bid. 11 were automatic qualifiers and the other 11 received at-large bids. Virginia took the AQ spot as ACC Champion. Duke and Syracuse are the other team ACC teams competing.

The WNBA season is well underway and plenty of former Cards have had strong starts. Dana Evans has been one of the top scorers for the Chicago Sky. Emily Engstler has had an impressive rookie campaign so far with the Indiana Fever. Myisha Hines-Allen continues to be a force to be reckoned with with the Washington Mystics.

On an unrelated women's sport but pertaining to Louisville, we do want to wish Louisville baseball a congratulations on winning the ACC Atlantic Division yesterday. Being a popular spring sport, it's a great place to run into several of our women student-athletes hanging out and an opportune time to interact with them. 

Happy Sunday and Go Cards!


  1. Yeah, it is kinda quiet out there for women's sports at UofL. I don't blame you guys for taking some time off. I am surprised, though, that you didn't cover Field Hockey today. But what do I know?

    1. Between four baseball games in five days, taking graduation pictures, plus a dress rehearsal and concert this weekend I’ve been getting maybe 6 hours of sleep a night so it looks like I missed the hiring of a new assistant field hockey coach. We’ll have to cover that more this week. Thanks for catching, Nick!
