Monday Motivation: March 31

Baseball, lacrosse, and tennis pulled in wins over the past week.


This week's column is significantly harder for obvious reasons, but there were still plenty of Virginia victories this past week.

Men's lacrosse drubbed VMI 21-3 in a midweek meeting, with twelve different Wahoos scoring goals. The game was a coming out party for first years Ryan Lukacovic and Joe French who combined for 15 points via eight goals and seven assists. Fellow first years AJ Fish and Jeff Kratky scored their first career goals in the game, and the defense limited the Keydets to three goals on 24 shots.

Check out highlights here.

On the women's side of the lacrosse world, the Hoos rolled to a 19-8 win over Old Dominion behind five goals from Liza Blue and four goals and an assist from Courtney Swan.

Women's tennis blanked Virginia Tech 7-0. All six singles matches were won in straight sets, and the No.3 ranked team improved their record to 13-4 (7-1 in the ACC).

Men's tennis fared just as well, holding Miami scoreless, defeating Florida State 6-1, and handling William and Mary 6-1. With the win over FSU, the Hoos now have won 113 straight regular season ACC matches. One. Hundred. Thirteen. Unreal.

Virginia baseball, now ranked number two in the nation, cleaned up this week, winning five games against three different opponents. The Hoos opened the week with a 5-3 win over Miami to clinch the series, then handled Longwood 8-1 before sweeping Virginia Tech 2-1, 9-2, and 7-4. They now boast a 23-4 (10-2 ACC) record, and are clicking on both sides of the ball.

This week, baseball faces Old Dominion, George Washington, and Pitt. Men's lacrosse travels to UNC on Saturday (on ESPNU at 3pm), and tennis (both men's and women's) face Georgia Tech and Clemson.

As always, GO HOOS.
