2008 No. 9 - Women's Track Wins ACC and Regional

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 did it bring the Hokies.

No. 9

The Virginia Tech Women's Track and Field team coasted to its second consecutive ACC Championship in mid-April and in late May captured its second consecutive East Regional championship.

Injuries kept the Hokies from making noise at the NCAA Championships in Des Moines, Iowa, but did not take away from their great season. Record-setting sophomore Queen Harrison (pictured) won both the 100 and 400m hurdles at the regional in Tallahassee.

She suffered a left hamstring injury at the NCAA meet and may have to miss Olympic qualifying beginning June 27 in Eugene, Ore. However, she was named Southeast Region track performer of the year and director of track and field Dave Cianelli was named region and ACC coach of the year.
