The Virginia Tech Hokies softball team continues to dominate their competition. Over the last two weeks VT has swept several conference opponents. They devastated the Syracuse Orange 13-1, 8-1, and 6-1. Next, they crushed the North Carolina Tar Heels 10-0, 8-5, and 9-1. During a double header against Longwood the Hokies did not allow a single run, defeating the Lancers 5-0 and 13-0. Most recently they visited the Pittsburgh Panthers and finished them off 12-3 and 7-2. The third game against Pitt was cancelled. During that stretch five of Virginia Tech’s victories were won via the five-inning mercy rule.

As of this writing the Hokies sit with an overall record of 25-3 and an undefeated conference record of 11-0. The Hokies are ranked No. 3 in the NCAA Women’s Softball RPI, only behind the Alabama Crimson Tide and Oklahoma Sooners. They are ranked No. 5 in both the USA Today / NFCA Coaches Poll and the ESPN / USA Softball Collegiate Top 25 Poll. The Florida State Seminoles are the only conference squad ranked ahead of them (No. 2 in the USA Today / NFCA Coaches Poll and No. 3 in the ESPN / USA Softball Collegiate Top 25 Poll). The Hokies and Seminoles will face off next weekend in Tallahassee. But first, Virginia Tech must face the No. 22 / No. 20 Central Florida Knights, in a series of three games that start tomorrow, Sunday, April 3 at 2 PM eastern. Those games will be streamed on ESPN+.

LET’S GO HOKIES!!!
