Softball Hosts Senior Weekend -- FRIDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

Softball Welcomes Clemson for Senior Weekend

Louisville softball will honor eight seniors this weekend as they close out the home season against #21 Clemson. The seniors being recognized are Mia Forsythe, Riley Frizell, Paige Geraghty, Kiley Goff, Daisy Hess, Gabby Holloway, Vanessa Miller, and Bailee Richardson.

Forsythe, Holloway, and Miller all spent their full careers with Louisville. Goff spent a year at Purdue, two at Maryland, and played her senior season with the Cards. Geraghty played two years at Auburn and the last two seasons at Louisville. Frizell played three years at Missouri before joining the Cards this past year. Richardson was at Georgia State for four years before utilizing her COVID-19 eligibility at Louisville. Hess spent three years at Georgia State before spending her final two seasons of eligibility for UofL. Everyone but Hess and Richardson would be able to use a COVID-19 eligibility year next year if they choose.

Taylor Roby also returns to Ulmer Stadium this weekend. One of the best pitcher-hitter combo players that Louisville has ever seen has been a student coach with the Tigers this year. Roby holds the records for career and single season home runs at Louisville. 

Louisville enters the weekend 25-21 overall and 6-12 in the ACC. Their conference record currently places them ninth out of 13 teams. 

Clemson is 31-15 on the year. The Tigers are fourth in the ACC with a 13-8 mark. They hit .298 as a team with six players batting over .300. As a team, Clemson has tallied 375 hits with 51 home runs and 276 runs scored. McKenzie Clark leads the team with a .373 batting average and 53 hits. 

The five pitchers for the Tigers have a collective 2.19 ERA. They have a collective 251 strikeouts to 294 hits allowed. Valerie Cagel is the hurler that has done the most damage to the Cards over her five year career with the Tigers and is 8-5 this year, 

All three games will be aired on ACCNX. Tonight's first pitch is set for 6:00pm.

Happy Friday and Go Cards!
