Glock ACC Setter of the Week -- Vball Stays #6 -- FH Travels to Indiana -- TUESDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

Elle Glock Named ACC Setter of the Week

Louisville volleyball setter Elle Glock was named ACC Setter of the Week. The redshirt sophomore earns her second ACC honors this season after receiving the same award the third week of the season.

Glock recorded 71 assists over the weekend in Louisville's two wins. 43 of her assists came in the win over North Carolina. Against Duke, Glock tallied 31 assists, 10 digs, three kills, two aces, and a block.

Anna DeBeer and Elena Scott join Glock as the other Cardinals to earn various ACC honors this season.

Volleyball Remains #6

In the latest AVCA rankings, Louisville retained the #6 spot. The Cards won two matches on the road, a 3-1 victory against North Carolina and a 3-0 sweep over Duke.

The top six spots all stayed put: Wisconsin, Nebraska, Stanford, Washington State, Oregon, and Louisville. Pitt and Texas flip flopped with the Longhorns moving to #7 and the Panthers down to #8. BYU and Tennessee round out the top 10. Georgia Tech is the only other ACC school in the rankings, coming in at #11.

Louisville also has wins over #13 Penn State, #18 Dayton, and #23 Kentucky.

The Cards are back in action this Friday against Pitt at 7:00pm ET. This one is being held at the KFC Yum! Center and Louisville hopes to break its own record, set previously this season against Kentucky. There were still plenty of lower level end zone seats as of last night.

Field Hockey Visits Indiana

Playing their third game in five days, Louisville field hockey is back in action today against Indiana. The Battle of the Border is set for a noon start in Bloomington. The only streaming is a paid platform at Big Ten Plus.

The Cards are 11-1 on the season after a pair of wins on the weekend. UofL took down Wake Forest in a shootout Friday night before cruising past Central Michigan on Sunday.

Indiana has struggled this season, starting 5-7. They've struggled against ranked teams, going 0-5 against the top 25 so far. Most recently, the Hoosiers defeated Bellarmine 1-0.

Indiana has been outscored 23-15 on the season but are nearly even on penalty corners. Sarah Charley leads the offense with four goals and three assists. She is one of nine IU players to score. Arabella Loveridge and Shannon McNally have split time evenly in the cage. The former has 33 saves on a .750 save percentage while the latter has 24 saves and a .686 save percentage.

Women's Soccer Seniors Interview

Case and I had the pleasure of interviewing all of the seniors at women's soccer following their win against Syracuse on Sunday. YouTube switched the video over to private but we were able to correct that issue. You can catch that video here.

Happy Tuesday and Go Cards!
