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

Louisville women's golf released their schedule on Thursday, joining the long list of Louisville teams to have done so this week. The Cards will start the fall season on September 12th when they travel to South Carolina for the Cougar Classic hosted by the College of Charleston. Their last tournament of the regular season comes on April 3rd and 4th when they participate in a match play event hosted by NC State. Louisville will play hosts at the Moon Golf Invitational in Melbourne, Florida from February 19th through the 21st, but the Cards will not host an event at the Cardinal Club this season.

TV Reminders

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.

Cards at Racing Louisville

Racing's winless streak was extended to six games last night when they lost 2-1 to Gotham FC at home. Emina Ekic scored earlier in the week to help the team draw against Orlando, but couldn't match it last night. She had a 25-yard free kick that she converted into a shot on goal, but the Gotham FC goalkeeper was able to make a diving save. Racing outshot NY 23-9 and led the expected goals rating 1.98-0.91. Sometimes, it's just the way things fall. Allison Whitfield was on the bench for the second straight game after being added to the roster to cover for players on international duty, but she is still awaiting the opportunity to make her debut. 

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. 

Cardinal Couple Radio Hour Podcast

After being out last week for boat racing, I'm back this week for the show. Daryl will be working to get the swamp turned back into a baseball field after the visit from the Riverfrogs (and the rain) last night. Paulie, Jeff, and Jared should all be in the house, though, as we work to bring you a full hour covering the joy and excitement of Louisville women's athletics. As always, you can check out the live stream of the show by going to the Cardinal Couple YouTube page and clicking on the live video. Jeff usually creates that about an hour before the show, which officially starts at 11 AM Eastern. If the live time doesn't work for you, there are plenty of playback options, so be sure to check out whichever is best for you!
