Virginia Tech Hokie Baseball Grabs 3 Wins in 4 Games: Win over Radford Plus 2 Game Series Win over Stony Brook
The Hokies had a streak going, but baseball is what it is, and after a big win at Radford, and 2 wins to nab the series against Stony Brook, they had a bit of a stall out and defensive melt to end things. GO HOKIES!!!
This was a display of the power of home cooking and unacceptably unbalanced officiating. Elizabeth Kitley is physically knocked out of the game with an unspecified injury. Clara Strack is fouled out, and Tech is forced to try to keep pace without a Center. G ends up scoring 39.
It was a tough loss in a nearly impossible situation as Notre Dame pulled ahead in the 1st, and away in the 2nd. Tech’s offense was frustrated, and Kitley largely neutralized and Tech’s defense struggling.
Finally, the media voters are taking notice. AP just ranked Virginia Tech #5 in the Women’s basketball poll for the week. Liz Kitley is selected ACC Player of the Week, and ESPN names the Hokies as their team of the week. Two more games! GO HOKIES!!!
The baseball team has three wins in a row and some convincing offensive output to give them a 5-2 record. Lots of offensive fireworks for sure, but this time the pitching held up and even got better. GO HOKIES!!!
It was a special Senior Night in the Cassell. Cayla, Georgia, Liz, and Liv all walked with their families, and then the team walked away from UNC to not only win the game but earn the #1 seed and a double bye in the ACC Tournament. GO HOKIES!!!
It’s a mostly cloudy cool day in Blacksburg, and the Hokies take to English Field for Their Home Opener of 2024. The weather brightened and warmed, and the Hokie offense was hot. There were a few struggles, but evantually it was a thrashing. GO HOKIES!!!
AP has finally noticed that Tech is a Top 10 team. Hokies rank 8th in this week’s poll. Liz Kitley gets ACC Player of the Week for an incredible two game total score and rebound count. GO HOKIES!!!
They really wanted a sweep, but the Hokies started the season with a roar of offense and an interesting mix of old and new pitching. They beat the Charlotte 49ers in Games 1 and 2, but come up short of a sweep in Game 3. GO HOKIES!!!
So, the #12 Lady Hokies head to Louisville to take on the #18 Lady Cards for a major stretch run contest, and Tech Triumphs... (no groans) ... with a huge 16-point win. G and Liz double-double, and Tilly comes in with double figures. A complete win. GO HOKIES!!!
