The lead off, here has to be something worldly. Nothing gets more worldly than earning a Gold Medal in world competition. Huge Hokie Kudos to Mekhi Lewis for his convincing Gold medal performance at the Junior World Freestyle Wrestling Championships in Slovakia. It’s a major major major thing, folks!
Just so everyone remembers how good this team is, we are reminding you.
The volleyball team recovered from it’s home opening loss to Pitt with a big 3-0 victory over the Wahoos of Hooville

Going one up in the Commonwealth Clash salves the pain a bit in regard to the prior ACC loss.
Miami took a hit as the Hokie Women’s soccer team blanked them 2-0.
ICYMI: In Sunday's win at Miami, @mandykmcglynn registered career win No. 23, career shutout No. 17 and pushed past 4,150 career minutes played - all third-best at the school. #Hokies ⚽️ pic.twitter.com/AujMWIxs9N— Virginia Tech Women's Soccer (@HokiesWSoccer) September 24, 2018
It was Coach Adair’s 100th victory, to go with the shutout.
We can’t really avoid the disappointment on the loss to ODU but there is lots more to recover from. Josh Jackson will have a fractured left fibula operated on tomorrow Sept 25th. There was no time table given but the medical information that we’ve gotten tells us that the process can take 6 to 8 weeks. That seems to be a real generality, and the coaches are currently unwilling to say anything further.
Ryan Willis is getting the call, and we all need to support him!
MORE ON QB RYAN WILLIS @CoachFuente likes the fact that @RyanWillis14 has previous experience as a starter and he preps to make his initial start for Tech at Duke.— Virginia Tech Football (@VT_Football) September 24, 2018

Coach Fuente’s postgame presser might go down as the most honest assessment of a team’s performance and the feelings of the coach and staff about it.
COACH FUENTE POSTGAME— Virginia Tech Football (@VT_Football) September 23, 2018
"First of all congratulations to ODU. They absolutely deserved to win the football game. They played harder & they played better in all three phases of the game. I'm disappointing in how we played. I'm most disappointed in our discipline level." #Hokies pic.twitter.com/EeZF80okx6
It’s really refreshing to see this level of frankness about a performance on a contested field. Good on Coach Fuente. There is no equivocation, and certainly no excuses made.
That’s the way Hokies roll.
