My apologies in the post delinquency. Let's get to it!
Women's lacrosse cruised to a convincing victory over American University last Tuesday, 18-4. Courtney Swan chipped in four goals while Casey Bocklet notched three assists. The Hoos continued their winning ways on Saturday with a convincing 13-8 win in their first ever match up against Notre Dame. Kelly Boyd, Maddy Keeshan, and Courtney Swan all recorded hat tricks in the win.
Men's tennis snuck past Clemson 4-3 and then blanked Georgia Tech 7-0. The win gave Virginia 115 straight ACC victories, which is incredible and close to the conference record.
The No.1 ranked baseball team had a solid week, starting with a 7-1 win over Old Dominion, and then dominated George Washington 10-0. Friday, the Hoos hit the road for their first ever conference series with Pitt, which ended in an epic fashion.
NO HITTER! Nathan Kirby no hits Pitt and strikes out 18 in 4-0 #UVaBase win.— Virginia Baseball (@UVABaseball) April 5, 2014
Nathan Kirby with the no hitter and 18 strikeouts for #UVaBase tonight, getting a 4-0 win at Pitt.— CavsCorner (@Cavs_Corner) April 5, 2014
Kirby's stellar outing earned himself the ACC Pitcher of the Week, National Player of the Week and another accolade (go ahead and fast forward to 2:20):
Virginia went on to win the series, pushing their record to 27-5 an 12-3 in the ACC. The Hoos face JMU on Tuesday.
In 'not ready to let go of Joe Harris (#SWOON) news', Joe Harris is still awesome. This weekend he participated as an ambassador for the All State NABC Good Works Team, supporting the Special Olympics in North Texas as part of the Final Four weekend. For the info from the original press release, check here. (Thanks to C. Gannon for the heads up!)
Harris also made a cameo on Saturday Night Live this weekend...well, at least a photo of him did.
He is quite the cover guy, and the good news is there were no UVa. highlights in the skit! Check back next week for more motivation!
