Women’s Basketball: The Hokies were able to end a four game losing streak by fighting back from a deficit and defeating the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, 54-48.  Virginia Tech has struggled during ACC play.  After starting the season 13-1 they have gone 3-11. The Hokies are 16-12 (4-11 ACC).  The ladies of VT basketball will close out the regular season this Sunday when they host UVA for Senior Day and Girl Scouts & American Heritage Girls Day.  The ACC Tournament will kick of next week on Wednesday, March 2. 

Softball: VPI has had a rough start to the Softball season.  Since opening the year with a victory over South Florida they have only managed to pull one more win.  That win occurred earlier today when the Hokies defeated Morehead State, 8-0, in the first game of a double-header.  Unfortunately, the second game of the day did not go so well.  Ohio State defeated Virginia Tech, 0-13.  The Hokies are currently sitting on a rather disappointing 2-9 overall record.  This Saturday they will face another two teams, USC Upstate and Ohio State again. 

Lacrosse: Last weekend the Fighting Gobblers overcame a five-point deficit against High Point to send the game into overtime.  VPI came through and won the match, 14-13.  Most recently the Hokies exercised the nuclear option and evaporated Radford, 17-2.  Tomorrow Virginia Tech will face another in state rival when they travel to Norfolk and face Old Dominion.

Men’s Tennis: After suffering a loss to No. 8 Ohio State the Hokies have won three straight, defeating UMBC, College of Charleston, and James Madison.  VPI is 7-2 on the season and faces N.C. State next Friday, March 4. 

Women’s Tennis: The women’s tennis effort has resulted in a five game winning streak.  Last weekend they defeated Marshall, 5-2, and Rice, 4-1.  VPI is 7-3 on the season.  The Hokies host Boston College this Sunday.
