WSoc at NC State -- Swim and Dive vs Tennessee -- THURSDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

Women's Soccer Travels to NC State

Louisville women's soccer hits the road for their final road trip of the season. They face NC State tonight before visiting Duke on Sunday.

The Cards and Wolfpack are slated for a 7:00 p.m. kickoff and will be shown on ACC Network Extra.

Louisville enters the match with a 5-6-2 record, but has struggled in conference play with a 2-5 mark. NC State is 7-5-4 overall with a 2-4-1 ACC record.

Most recently, NC State drew 3-3 against Miami. The Hurricanes held a 3-0 lead 19 minutes into the match but the Wolfpack defended their home turf by scoring the final three goals of the match.

Jameese Joseph has powered the offense with seven goals and 16 total points. Leyah Hall-Robinson leads the team with five assists to go along with a pair of goals. Eight other NC State players have logged at least one goal. Despite scoring 21 goals on the year, NC State has allowed 24 goals.

Maria Echezarreta has been the only player in goal for the Wolfpack. She's allowed 24 goals but has recorded 64 saves for a .727 save percentage.

For Louisville, this is a must win game in order to keep any postseason hopes alive.

Swim and Dive Hosts Tennessee

A top-10 match-up will be happening at the Ralph Wright Natatorium today at 2:00 p.m. The Cards host Tennessee in a dual men/women meet. All events at the Ralph Wright Natatorium are free admission.

Plenty of women's swimmers hope to make an early strong impression. Gabi Albiero is one of the highest ranked swimmers in the country in the 50-meter and 100-meter freestyle. Christiana Regenauer also ranks among the top in the country in both events.

Looking at longer distances, Paige Hetrick and Rye Ulett both rank in the top 10 in the country in the 200-meter freestyle and 500-meter freestyle, respectively.

Louisville Live

Continuing to grow in popularity, Louisville Live will be held at Louisville Slugger Field this year. The event, which showcases both women's basketball and men's basketball is scheduled to start at 8:00 p.m. and last around 90 minutes. This will be the first time that a full court will be used.

The roster for both teams will be introduced, including pre-season All-ACC team members Hailey Van Lith and Morgan Jones. Members of the team will then compete in various skills competitions including a three-point contest.

Louisville was recently picked to finish first in the ACC this year. Virginia Tech was picked to finish second and NC State third.

I plan to be out at Louisville Live to get some shots of the event so hopefully we can share some of those this weekend.

Happy Thursday and Go Cards!


  1. With #1Texas losing in Volleyball to Iowa St. last night, I hope the Cards take over #1 spot. Iowa St. wasn't ranked.

  2. Thoughts and prayers go out to our constant reader and Clemson friend/fan Arthur. A phone call with him this morning revealed his wife Bea was admitted to hospital last night with respiratory issues which led to a diagnosis of COVID. She is on oxygen. He is being tested today, says he's showing no symptoms and feels OK except being quite worried about her.


  3. Sending feels to you and Bea, Arthur. Hope she gets better and is released.

    Your pal.

  4. We hope she gets out soon and gets well soon Arthur. We still "mask" a lot and try to avoid bid and closely packed crowds.

  5. Damn. Hate hearing about Bea. Wishing her the best and a quick recovery with no long lasting side effects.

  6. Hi,

    Clemson Cuz, stopping by just to give you all an update on Arthur's wife Bea, but it looks like you all know about as much as I do.

    We chatted briefly on the phone Thursday night. Bea is conscious, on oxygen and the doctors main concern is getting the lungs clear, obviously, so pneumonia doesn't settle in.

    Arthur says she being a real handful for the docs and nurses, bed isn't comfortable and she is mad that she can't go to Syracuse vs. Clemson Saturday. Doctors say that is good, she cognizant and alert.

    Arthur holding up OK, but we can't convince him to go home and sleep, he won't leave the lounge they have up here for patient's families. . His son is flying in Sunday, that will be good.

    Anyway, take care and I know he appreciates the concerns.
