Downtown Pep Rally for UofL Women Today
Wednesday April 1, 2009
A huge pep rally at Fourth Street Live today will help send the University of Louisville women's basketball team on to victory in St Louis.
Mayor Jerry Abramson and University of Louisville president Dr. Jim Ramsey will join others in celebrating the LadyCards success and giving them a boost as they head into the NCAA Final Four, and a Sunday matchup with Oklahoma.
"The women's team has had a historic season and the players have been an inspiration to our city," Abramson said. "We want the entire community to give them the sendoff they deserve."
The pep rally is at 5:30 p.m. at Fourth Street Live in downtown Louisville.
The team, which has produced a 33-4 record entering the Final Four in St. Louis, will be at the event with the U of L cheerleaders, band, Ladybirds dance team and other speakers as a part of the program. The team's regional championship trophy will be on display.
