Hokie Sports Roundup

Gobbler Country takes a look at the various efforts of Virginia Tech's student athletes.

Softball: The Hokies have run into something of a rough spot.  They’ve lost five of their last six, including a sweep, this past week, at Longwood University.  Although they have had a tough time in the last week, Maggie Tyler was still able to win her third consecutive ACC Co-Pitcher of the Week.  Tyler pitched… ANOTHER shut out during the lone win VT collected in the last five games.  Lauren Duff's impressive hitting streak ended, during the last game of the Louisville series, at 20.  The 20 game streak ranks as the second longest streak in VT history.  The Hokies have been able to maintain their 0.500 record with 21-21 overall and 10-5 in conference.  Virginia Tech has their hands full this weekend when the No. 20 Notre Dame Fighting Irish come to Blacksburg for a three game series.

Lacrosse: The Hokies had a break during the week, but face another top 20 foe this weekend when they travel to Chestnut Hill to face the No. 15 Boston College Eagles this Saturday.

Men’s Tennis: Earlier this month VT was able to defeat No. 51 Notre Dame, 6-1.  They followed up that victory with another when they overwhelmed Clemson, 5-2.  Last weekend the No. 40 Hokies fell to the No. 31 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.  Virginia Tech’s overall record is 14-7 and their conference record is 6-5.  This weekend the Hokies next host the Miami Hurricanes for the regular season finale.  The men’s tennis ACC Championships will be held from April 20-24 at Cary, NC.

Women’s Tennis: The women of VT Tennis faced two tough opponents over the last ten days.  They barely fell to No. 2 UNC (3-4).  They then faced their primary rival in the Virginia Cavaliers.  UVA was able to completely dominate the Hokies and defeated the No. 30 Hokies, 1-6.  VT is 14-7 overall and 7-5 conference.  This weekend the Hokies travel to Notre Dame to face the Fighting Irish.  They will be racking up the miles because they will also be facing Syracuse, in New York, for the regular season finale.  The women’s tennis ACC Championships will also be held in Cary, NC, from April 20 – April 24.

The academic and athletic year is coming to a close!  Stay tuned to Gobbler Country for the latest on VT's efforts!  GO HOKIES!
