A lot of action for Wahoo Nation this weekend in places that you might not normally be looking, so here's just a quick summary of what all went down, in case you missed it.
Former Wahoos Treat Huey and Dominic Inglot claim Citi Open
The unseeded duo of Dominic Inglot and Treat Conrad Huey came up with a big win over Sam Querrey and Kevin Anderson to claim the men's doubles title at the Citi Open (formerly Legg Mason), 7-6 (7), 6-7 (9), 10-5. They're just the fifth pair of former college teammates to win an ATP doubles event since 2000. Following the match, the two put on UVA ballcaps in show of support of their hometown crowd.
Quarterback Michael Rocco knows the job is his
Despite what's been going around about quarterback controversy at Virginia, quarterback Michael Rocco is just fine where he is.
"I believe it's my job to lose," the starter told the media on Friday, "and I'm not going to lose it."
"For me, it's always a competition," Rocco said. "I felt like when (Sims) came in really nothing changed from my point of view. I believe I'm the starting quarterback and the leader of this team. ... I believe (the players) think of me as the leader of this team, too. They tell me that. They reassure me."
Rocco beat out the competition last year for the starting quarterback position and proved throughout the season that he did, in fact, get better on a game-to-game basis, especially when Virginia finally settled with using one quarterback rather than weaving them in and out. It's going to be no surprise to me when they name Rocco as the starter against Richmond to kick off the season. Who starts against Virginia Tech remains a question mark.
Team USA Field Hockey falls to South Africa
Cavaliers Michelle Vittese and Paige Selenski's Olympic games will not end in a medal, as Team USA was dropped from medal contention after losing to New Zealand on Saturday, 3-2. Earlier today, Team USA was routed by South Africa, 7-0, to put the Americans squarely in last place in their pool play. USA (1-4) will play the 11th place game on Friday to close out the Olympics.
Ben Kohles will certainly be on PGA Tour next year after stunning performance
Former Virginia golfer Ben Kohles has only played in two Web.com Tour starts. And he's won them both. With eyeballs glued to the WGC-Bridgestone Classic coverage, The 22-year-old played in the WGC-Bridgestone Classic over the weekend and won his second straight Web.com event to move within a win of locking up a spot on the PGA Tour the rest of the season. That will almost certainly happen soon, but looking forward to next year, right now he's already earned enough money to rank second on the tour's money list. The Top 25 will earn a PGA Tour card for next season.
Kohles has already earned $261,000 in his two events. Only two players have won two -- Casey Wittenberg, the only man above him in the rankings, is the other, and he needed 15 events to do so. Everyone else in the Top 19 has already played 13 or more events.
