Around Campus: Baseball beats No.1 Tulane

Baseball Beats No.1
Sophomore B.J. Rosenberg was dominant, allowing one run over seven innings on five hits, as the University of Louisville baseball team upended number one Tulane 6-2 on Friday in the series opener.

Louisville (13-6, 4-0) is now 3-1 against ranked teams this season and atop the C-USA standings at 4-0.

These same two teams will meet on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. ET for game two of the series. Admission is free at Cardinal Stadium.

The University of Louisville won their first two games of the Courtyard Marriot Classic with a 14-0 win over Middle Tennessee and a 1-0 eight inning no hitter over Western Kentucky.

Aja Sherman tossed her fifth career no-hitter. She also set a new school record with 15 strikeouts and allowed only one walk in eight innings.

New School Record!
U of L freshman swimmer Adam Madarassy set a school record in the 100-fly at the NCAA Championships in Minneapolis Friday afternoon. He qualified at No. 35 and improved an impressive five spots to No. 30 with a time of 47.99.

"This speaks volumes of our preparations for the NCAA. It is very difficult to continue to improve this far into your training," said head coach Arthur Albiero. "It is a meet of thirds. One third improve, one third slows down and one third stays the same. We are happy to be in the top third."

Madarassy will swim his strongest event tomorrow in the 200-fly where he is seeded No. 18.
