Yoga: Same place, different time

The noon hour yoga classes will end this Wednesday, October 5th.  Classes will resume after fall break, but at a different time.  Beginning on October 13th, classes will meet on Mondays and Thursdays from 5:15 to 6:15.  Classes will continue to meet in LL77.

 

If you've not yet given Law School yoga a try, this might be the perfect opportunity for you to take the plunge.  Again, no prior experience is necessary.  And in fact, the instructor focuses on something different in every class, so that even those who attend regularly find every session an interesting new challenge.  We provide the mats ... all you need is comfortable clothing (a t-short and sweats or shorts).  So give it a try ... what do you have to lose (except perhaps a little angst or stress)?

UofL vs. UK Flag Football Game Results

The UofL School of Law Lady Law Cards shut out their arch rival UK Lady Cats 12-0 in the debut of the annual flag football game between the two schools last Friday evening in Lexington.

In a low scoring, tightly contested affair, Whitney Roth scampered 12 yards on a reverse early in the second half to break a 0-0 tie which proved to be the game-winning touchdown.  A little later, Danielle Yanelli raced 45 yards on a quarterback sneak which gave the Lady Cards defense more than enough to return to Louisville with a victory.

This game was the debut for the Lady Cards of the "Powder Puff" flag football game traditionally only contested between the guys.   

Speaking of the guys, in a tightly contested game that involved a series of lead changes between both teams, the School of Law Cards lost a squeaker on a late touchdown by the College of Law Cats.  The final score was UK 19-UofL 13.

The Law Cards were led by the combination of quarterback Tyler Korus to Jared Key and 2 interceptions by Blake Bowling.
