The Softball team ends its season with a 2-2 in the Lexington Regionals. The Baseball team finishes one game below .500, but does win its final game against the Wahoos. Miracle turnarounds and steady rebuild progress for the big Spring sports programs. GO HOKIES!!!
Well, things are still moving along, and one thing that is moving well is the Virginia Tech Hokie Softball Team. First, they take their 1st tournament game, then a pile get named to post season recognition teams. The Baseball team, takes a 6/6 tie into the 11th but couldn’t get a run across.
Friday is Commencement Day. Classes ended last Wednesday, and exams are formally over and the final grades for the semester were due in last evening. That means short of the last baseball series and the Softball team’s run at the NCAA Tournament GC goes into Summer content mode.
There were a few disappointments, not everything is wrapped up, but the Track and Field team triumphs again, and Cole Beck is looking like the fastest NCAA running back in History? We’ll see as we take a look on this cool damp Mother’s Day evening.
Jarrett’s promising NFL career was tragically cut short after one season.
Tomorrow is Reading Day. It’s the final day of classes in the 2019 Spring Semester. The Students are wrapping it up after some serious partying (maybe panicky studying, too). The Softball team is about to head into the ACC Championships and maybe the NCAA Softball World Series. The baseball team has 4 more to try to stay above .500. The rest of Tech is just trying to pass.
With less than six weeks until the NBA draft, here’s a look at the players with some amount of draft buzz coming off their Sweet 16 season.
While no Hokie was selected in last week’s NFL draft, some are signing deals with NFL teams as undrafted free agents.
Virginia Tech graduate student, Amanda Hollandsworth, becomes the first Hokie woman to qualify for the U.S. Women’s Open Championship!
The Hokies lock up the Coastal for the first time in program history and also set their best ever mark for ACC wins.
The baseball team finds itself struggling to find the ball with their bats and drop 4, including being swept narrowly by Miami and another pitchers’ duel in Norfolk. The Softball team, on the other hand has just trounced the ACC for the regular season Coastal Championship. They wait for the ACC Championship game and then a shot at the College Softball World Series.
This is as close to a recruiting disaster as you can get without having your coaching staff either fired or under an NCAA investigation cloud. Since neither is the case, dealing with the PR fall out isn’t going to be easy.
No Hokies to be seen, but lots of odd, strange, and inscrutable choices along with mostly predictable ones. Tonight is rounds 2 and 3. I don’t hold out much hope for seeing any Hokies, yet. But with this draft, you never know.
The lacrosse program faced quite the (Infinity) gauntlet to close the regular season while the softball team is absolutely crushing it. Also there’s a picture of a Hokie Golden Retriever.
The chances for a Virginia Tech Hokie Draft pick are pretty slim for the early rounds, this time. 2018 wasn’t a great year, and the eligible player list is pretty short. Let’s take a look, but don’t hold your breath. Maybe Saturday.
