2008 No. 7 - Soccer in the College Cup

We're counting down the Top 10 moments in Virginia Tech sports from the 2007-08 season. The moments are judged on level of pride it brought to Hokie Nation, how great the accomplishment was and how much attention it brought the Hokies.

No. 7

Virginia Tech's men's soccer team went 14-4-5, advanced to the Final Four of the 2008 College Cup and finished the year ranked No. 4 in the nation. The Hokies lost in the Final Four, 2-0, against eventual national champion Wake Forest on ESPN2.

Tech finished fourth in the powerful ACC in 2008 and laid the foundation for a bright future for the program. After dropping their season opener against VCU, the Hokies went 14 matches without suffering a defeat. They beat five ranked teams during the season, including No. 2 UConn in the quarterfinals.

Hokie all-American forward Patrick Nyarko was drafted in the first round of the MLS SuperDraft by the Chicago Fire, the greatest team in the history of soccer.
