Wahoo Weekend: Ten Cavalier Squads See Action, Mixed Results

A mixed weekend of Virginia sports found the Cavaliers with a program-first All-American, the end of an undefeated season to date, and a couple ACC series sweeps, not necessarily in the right direction.

SPORT RESULT COMMENTS
Basketball (W) JMU: 68-59 L The first season under head coach Joanne Boyle is officially in the books, as the Hoos fell in the quarterfinals of the Women's NIT Sunday afternoon. Virginia finished the season with a 25-11 record, the most wins since the 1999-2000 season (25-9).
Swimming (M) NCAAs: 15th Virginia had its fifth consecutive top-15 finish in the NCAA Championships this past weekend. Senior Briggy Imbriglia became the first Cavalier diving All-American, finishing 13th on the platform. Overall, the Hoos placed the second-highest among ACC squads, just 8.5 points behind North Carolina.
Golf (M) Hootie @ Bulls Bay After the first day of play on Sunday, two Hoos find themselves leading the pack, as freshman Ji Soo Park is sitting in first at 3-under 69, while Ben Kohles is in an eight-way tie for second at 2-under 70. The No. 24 Hoos are currently sitting in fourth overall at 287, four back from leaders Kentucky and Auburn. LSU is in third at 286.
Track & Field M: First
W: First
At the first home meet in two years, both the men's and women's track and field teams finished first at the UVa Team Swashbuckle on Saturday, opening the outdoor season with the brand new, renovated facility. The men had a dramatic 1-2-3-4 finish in the final event, the 1,500 meter, to overtake Army, 147-146. The women had a less dramatic finish, with 159 points, 35 ahead of Army's 125.
Softball FSU: 5-0 L
FSU: 2-0 L
FSU: 3-1 L
In a matchup to determine who would take sole possession of first place in the ACC standings, the Cavaliers fell short against No. 23 Florida State. Erica Cipolloni was the only Hoo to score a run this weekend, with a lead-off triple and scoring off Marcy Bowdren's sac fly.
Baseball Clemson: 6-3 W
Clemson: 5-1 W
Clemson: 5-3 W
It is so, so sweet to pick up an ACC series sweep.
Tennis (M) Duke: 4-3 W
UNC: 6-1 W
The No. 3 Virginia men's tennis team eked out a win over No. 6 Duke on Friday, and followed it up with a stroll in the park over No. 20 North Carolina on Sunday. Both wins are quality -- the one over Duke was between the two highest ranked teams in the conference, while the one over Carolina was between two of the final three then-undefeated teams in the ACC.
Tennis (W) Duke: 4-3 L
UNC: 4-3 L
No. 8 Virginia dropped two heartbreakers this weekend against two very good teams -- No. 5 Duke and No. 11 North Carolina. The women have not beaten Duke since 2006, and even more painful, have not beaten Carolina since 2000. Virginia fell to 12-4 (3-2 ACC) on the season, breaking a six-match win streak on Friday.
Lacrosse (M) Johns Hopkins:
11-10 L (OT)
The men in stripes blew a late call that gave No. 2 Hopkins an undeserved possession in sudden death overtime. Virginia took their first loss of the season.
Lacrosse (W) Duke 14-12 W No. 12 Virginia is looking to make a big leap in the rankings this week, after taking down No. 6 Duke on Saturday. The Hoos earned their first conference win and should be riding some momentum as they enter a three-game home stand, against ODU, Boston College and Harvard.
