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.

The United States Department of State has announced the scholarship competition for the 2012 Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) Program for overseas intensive summer language institutes in thirteen critical need foreign languages. CLS institutes provide fully-funded group-based intensive language instruction and structured cultural enrichment experiences for seven to ten weeks for U.S. citizen undergraduate and graduate students. Students may apply for one language, and will be placed at institute sites based on language evaluations after selection.
Languages offered: Arabic, Azerbaijani, Bangla/Bengali, Chinese, Hindi, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Persian, Punjabi, Russian, Turkish, and Urdu. Interested applicants should review the full eligibility and application information on the CLS Program website. Arabic, Chinese, Persian, Russian, and Japanese institutes have language prerequisites, which can be found here.
Students from all academic disciplines, including business, engineering, law, medicine, sciences, and humanities are encouraged to apply. While there is no service requirement attached to CLS Program awards, participants are expected to continue their language study beyond the scholarship period, and later apply their critical language skills in their future professional careers.
The CLS Program has planned outreach events at universities across the U.S. in fall 2011. Check out the CLS website or its Facebook page.
For more information about the CLS Program and to access the on-line application, please visit the CLS website: http://www.clscholarship.org. Law school alumnus Jeffrey Benedict, who currently works in UofL's International Office, has also agreed to work with students interested in filling out an application. You can contact Jeffrey here.
