Monday Motivation: the Tuesday edition

A bout with pneumonia delayed the motivation, but can never cancel it. Let's see what the 'Hoos have done over the past week.

Good thing Friday wasn't a day last week! Definitely nothing happened. Let's get to it.

Rapid Fire

-First year Derrick Etienne provided a late game winner for No.4 Men's Soccer against VCU. The Hoos snagged the game 1-0 after Etienne found paydirt in the 84th minute. With the win (and a loss to Notre Dame), Virginia now sits at 5-1-2. Next up, the Hoos host George Washington tonight at 7pm. Get out and get loud!

-On the women's side, the No.1 ranked Hoos suffered a similar heartbreaking loss to the No.6 Irish (what did we ever do to you, Notre Dame?!), but rebounded with a 1-0 victory over No.19 Duke on Sunday. Alexis Shaffer scored the decisive goal for Virginia in a defensive battle. Coach Swanson and the Wahoos head to NC State next for a Friday night tilt.

-No.4 Women's Field Hockey took down William and Mary 4-2 behind goals from Tara Vittese, Lucy Hyams, Katie Kelly, and Caleigh Foust. The Hoos fell to No.2 Syracuse for their first loss of the season, but have a chance to rebound against No.3 North Carolina this Friday at 6pm at Turf Field.

-It's always fun to beat Duke, and that's just what the Women's Volleyball team did this week, taking down the Blue Devils 3-1 in Cameron Indoor. First year Anna Walsh was named ACC Freshman of the Week (the third time this season) for her career-high 18 kills and career-tying five blocks performance.

-Former UVA baseball great Jarrett Parker had himself a day for the San Francisco Giants as he hit three homeruns (including one grand slam) for seven RBIs in a 14-10 win over the Oakland Athletics. Parker was the first rookie in Giants history to accomplish the feat of knocking three out of the park in a game. Way to go, Jarrett!

-The Virginia Men's Golf Team Helped the ACC defeat the SEC in the DICK'S Challenge Cup. The win was the second consecutive for the ACC as the good guys took down the competition 15.5-14.5. First year Thomas Walsh and fourth year Nick McLaughlin won for the Wahoos. Fall competition continues for the Hoos in the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate October 9-11.

See you next week, and GO HOOS!
