MACK JOINS SOFTBALL CARDS FROM UK
It seems the Louisville softball offseason news continues. Chelsea Mack has announced that she is transferring to UofL.
Mack joins the Cards after spending her freshman season with rival Kentucky. The Brecksville, Ohio native is listed as an outfielder and played in 39 games last season. She logged six runs scored and eight stolen bases during her freshman campaign.
In high school, she was 81 of 83 in stolen base attempts, a school record. She hit .726 her senior year while logging 32 RBIs and 57 runs scored. She was a two-time National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-American.
The announcement of the addition of Mack is a bright spot less than 24 hours after the announcement of ACC Freshman of the Year catcher Sarah Gordon leaving to go to Georgia. My personal thoughts are that Gordon chose to go somewhere closer to home (Lexington, S.C. to Athens, GA is about three hours). The Bulldogs did earn the 14 overall seed in this year's NCAA Softball Tournament. We have also received intel of a couple more current UofL players exploring options in the transfer portal.
In other news, we are less than two months away from fall sports starting up. Field hockey and women's soccer tend to begin in mid-August with volleyball usually beginning shortly after. The Cardinal Couple Crew is eager to get back out to the various facilities and sports to bring the greatest in the Joy and Excitement of Louisville Women's Athletics.
