No Virginia Cavaliers games on Wednesday, but we still have plenty of off the field news. One UVA lacrosse graduate got the call up to play for her national team, highlights on UVA linebacker Malcolm Cook’s final, final year on the football team, and an update on Indiana’s situation in the running game. Read all about it and more in today’s ATC!
Recent graduate Kasey Behr was named to the U.S. Lacrosse Women’s National Team that will take on James Madison, last season’s NCAA champions, in the Team USA Fall Classic. Behr was a three-time All-ACC choice and two-time All-American in her playing days as a Cavalier.
Big time congratulations to Kasey Behr for being named to the @USLacrosse Women's roster for the Team USA Fall Classic! #GoHoos— Virginia Women's Lacrosse (@UVAWomensLax) September 4, 2018
Catch her and all of Team USA as they play JMU on Oct. 6!

Indiana starting running back Cole Gest tore his ACL ahead of the team’s game against Virginia this weekend. In his place, the Hoosiers will likely turn to seniors Mike Majette and Ricky Brookins, as well as a few more inexperienced players to manage the backfield situation.

Just as we highlighted in Richard Burney's story yesterday, Malcolm Cook has endured a recent position change on UVA's defense. Cook, who was not sure he wanted to return to the team for a sixth time, ended up making the transition to inside linebacker this year, replacing UVA legend, Micah Kiser. Cook performed well in the first game, making five total tackles.
The band doesn’t get enough love; they were awesome on Saturday. Thanks for all you do, guys!
