Sadly, the Hokies did not make the cut for the NCAA Tournament, but they did secure another berth in the WNIT!

Sunday the Hokies host in-state rivals, VCU! Keep up the good work ladies!

Wrestling

This weekend the Hokies have been working hard at the NCAA Tournament! As of this writing redshirt freshmen phenom, Mekhi Lewis, has upset his way all the way to All-American honors and a spot in his class championship round. Zack Zavatsky also locked up All-American honors. Stay tuned to Gobbler Country for more on the wrestling season as the tournament comes to a close!

Lacrosse

The Fighting Gobblers finally got the ranked opponent monkey off their back when they defeated No. 13 Denver, in overtime, 15-14! They followed up their best win of the season with a victory over Elon. Virginia Tech has now improved to 7-4 (all loses against ranked foes), and will return to conference play today when they face the Louisville Cardinals.

Softball

This past week the Hokies swept their three game series against the N.C. State Wolfpak and their two game series against Binghamton. The also collected a single game win over Lipscomb.

This weekend VT heads to Pittsburgh to face off against Pitt in a three game series. Fantastic work ladies!

GO HOKIES!!!
