–          The No. 15 UK volleyball team put away no, 19 Michigan State in five sets, 3-2 (29-27, 15-25, 25-22, 23-25, 15-12) in front of an amazing crowd of almost 2,000 fans. Sophomore libero Ashley Dusek actually finished the match with a crazy number of 34 digs, the most ever in a five-set match in UK history. The cats play again at 10:30 against IUPUI and at 7:30 against Little Rock.

 

–          Kentucky women’s soccer recorded another shutout with a 3-0 final score over UNC Greensboro. Senior captain Courtney Raetzman led the Cats with a goal and two assists. The Cats out-shot the Titans 17-3 and had a 5-1 edge in corner kicks. Toledo will arrive in Lexington tomorrow for a 6 p.m. match against the Cats.

 

–          A last minute goal from Napo Matsoso pushed the No. 14 Cats over Valpo for a 2-1 edge Friday. Over 2k supporters attended Friday’s match, the second-largest home opener in program history (to be fair the best was against Louisville in 2005). Valpo also opened scoring six minutes before the half.

 

–          I miss AJ Reed. The ex-cat went 4-for-4 in a win and hit his (minor-league leading) 31st homer of the season. Reed scored four runs in the 17-6 route of Midland to improve hiss batting average to .352 in 32 games with the team. He’s also on a seven-game hitting streak.

 

–          We all know it’s hard to put rivalries aside, but that is exactly what Franklin County and Western Hills have done for Franklin soccer player Bradley Camic. Camic has been in a medically-induced coma after collapsing on the field earlier this month. The schools said they expected to raise around $10,000 for the cause.

    Thanks for mentioning Bradley Camic and the support that the Frankfort area High Schools (Franklin County and Western Hills) are showing for their fellow soccer player, although Bradley’s a rival competitor. Bradley is a Junior on the Frankfort High Panthers soccer team; not Franklin. And many thanks to the students that have been holding prayer services for Bradley before classes. If you have an inclination to help Bradley’s family with his mounting medical bills (Bradley has been in the hospital for 19 days now), here is a link to the Go Fund Me site setup for folks to be able to contribute. Prayers are requested, too. Thanks so much anything that you can do to help with Bradley’s plight!
