2008 No. 3 - Tincher No-hits Team USA

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. 3

We were there for history.

Tincher's no-hitter made headlines across the country and was possibly the most unique and greatest accomplishment by a Virginia Tech athlete in the history of the athletics department.

Virginia Tech will always be a football school, but from the time of Tincher's no-hitter to the appearance in the WCWS, the fans of the program caught softball fever (which sounds like a terrible, terrible ailment without proper context).
