Spring Sports Coming to a Close
We had our summer interns and co-ops start at work this week, which can only mean one thing: Speed School students' one week summer break has ended. Since the summer semester has already begun, the tail end of spring sports is here and the summer slump is upon us. With the Louisville softball team missing out on the NCAA tournament, the last sports hanging on are Track and Field and Rowing. Rowing's NCAA championship weekend is on the horizon (May 27-29), and Track and Field are sending a record number of entries (31) to the NCAA Regional event next week. Among the 11 participants on the women's side are three ACC champs in Gabriela Leon, Synclair Savage, and Elena Scott. They'll all look to improve upon those finishes and add even bigger hardware to their collections.
Another way to get your fix of Louisville athletes is the Racing Louisville W League team. The lower-division side under the Soccer Holdings umbrella boasts eight current and former Louisville soccer players. The W League team's home games are free and are hosted at the Lynn Family Sports Vision and Training Center on Edith Road. One of those games was last night, a 2-0 loss to Indy, and, while the stats aren't kept on the website, Sarah Hernandez got a shout out for a shot in last night's game. It was, as you might guess, a spectacular header, just like many of her goals at UofL. The team will play four more home games this summer, with the next coming at 7PM on Sunday.

As Daryl mentioned yesterday, we're off today, as hosts are scattered to the wind. As she hinted at, we'll be off next week as well, as the holiday weekend will have everyone's schedules in disarray. The break is beneficial, as Paulie will need the time in the lab to devise questions for the traditional summer quiz segment. If all goes to plan, we should be back to normal in June.
Until next time, Go Cards!
