Another Track Record and a Tough Swimming Loss -- SATURDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

Cards Successful on Day One of Lenny Lyles Invitational

After setting a school record in the long jump two weeks ago, Synclair Savage decided that it was rather fun and elected to do it again. Her 6.44 from a couple of weeks ago would have won the event again this week, but she pushed the jump to 6.52m (~21' 4.5") this week. The distance set a facility and meet record, as well, and Savage followed it up with a second place finish in the 60m dash. She was second only to teammate Taylor Herbert, who posted a time just 0.02 seconds faster. The top four finishers in the event broke the previous meet record of 7.47s, with Herbert finishing in 7.39s.

The Cards didn't see a  ton of success in other events, but they did finish second and fifth in the Open Pole Vault (Carly Pujol and Lily Fleetwood) and Aliyah Welter grabbed a podium in third in the seeded event. The Lenny Lyles Invitational continues at the Norton Sports and Learning Center at 11AM today.

Cards Fall to IU at Home

Louisville invited the Hoosiers into the Ralph Wright Natatorium yesterday evening and the men, at least, got splashed around. The Cards lost 193-10 on that side of the pool, while the women fared better but still came up short. The sixth-ranked Louisville squad was "upset" by the ninth-ranked team from Indiana by a score of just 155-145. Louisville's day opened with a victory in the 200 medley relay. They would go on to end the day with a victory in the 200 free relay as well, but Indiana was able to make up the difference in the middle. 

Despite the loss, Louisville had quite a bit of individual success. In addition to the two relay victories, the Cards got a win in the 200 fly (Tristen Ulett), had a podium sweep (Gabi Albiero, Christiana Regenauer, and Julia Dennis) of the 50 free, and had 1-2 finishes in the 100 free (Albiero, Ella Welch) and 100 fly (Regenauer, Ulett). 

It's a short rest for the Cards as they're back in action today against Cincinnati. Today's event begins at Noon in the Ralph Wright Natatorium, and the day will begin with Senior Day festivities.
