2008 No. 5 - Softball at the WCWS

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. 5

A great season for the Virginia Tech softball team culminated with a trip to the sport's grandest stage: The Women's College World Series in Oklahoma City.

Unfortunately, the Hokies lost both games in OKC. However, it was a wonderful ride to the World Series. Dramatic home runs gave the Hokies a regional win in Knoxville and outstanding pitching from Angela Tincher gave them a super-regional win in Ann Arbor.

Tincher pitched valiantly in the World Series, but the bats fell silent and Tech was shutout in both games.
