There aren't a ton of major stories happening in Louisville athletics, so let's use today to briefly check in on some upcoming and recently announced events as well as some ongoing stories in the area.
Women's Golf Schedule Announced
There are multiple things to be on the lookout for this weekend as far as keeping up with the Cards goes. The first comes today at noon in the form of the Lacrosse World Championships women's gold medal match. That matchup, as I mentioned yesterday, is between the USA and Canada, the latter of which boasts 6 Cardinals. The game is on ESPN2, not ESPNU, so tune in after F1 qualifying and Sportscenter (or after you listen to the Cardinal Couple Radio Hour Podcast.)
The other TV item was profiled by Jared on Thursday. Louisville's ACC Network takeover will take place tomorrow. Settle in for non-stop Louisville game replays starting at midnight. The day will feature 11 total events and the last four are all scheduled to be women's games. Starting at 4PM, watch basketball and volleyball alternate through the evening with their games against UCONN, Pitt, Michigan, and UK.

Ava Jones Family Update
This is a sad story and it's only obliquely related to Louisville women's athletics by way of the fact that it is related to women's athletics and happened in Louisville. Ava Jones, an Iowa WBB commit in the 2023 class, was in town for the Run 4 The Roses tournament when her family was struck on the sidewalk by an impaired driver downtown on Tuesday. Yesterday, the news was released that Ava's father, Trey, had succumbed to his injuries. According to an update from WDRB News, Ava's brother says that while Ava and her mother both remain unconscious, Ava has been displaying movement. Doctors fear she has suffered head trauma.
Jones' team won their bracket's championship in the tournament yesterday and dedicated their win to the Jones family. We offer our condolences to the family and hope for speedy and full recoveries for those that have been injured.
