Sports that aren't football - 11/10

Women's Soccer Headed to NCAAs

Is it the women's team's turn? One year after the men's team made its run to the College Cup semifinals, the women's team enters the NCAA Tournament with a 10-8-4 record.

The Hokies will face BYU in the first round Friday in Los Angeles. The Hokies are 2-1-2 on neutral sites this season.

Volleyball Senior Night this Weekend

The volleyball team has been struggling recently. After starting 7-1 in ACC play, the Hokies have lost five of their last seven matches.

However, the Hokies get some home cooking this weekend against BC and Maryland. The Hokies swept both teams on the road earlier this year.

The ACC race is crowded and the Hokies are two games out of first place. And four their last five games are against teams in the bottom five of the conference. If they can run the table, maybe they have a shot at an ACC title or at making the NCAA Tournament.

Men's Basketball Starts

The Virginia Tech men's basketball team starts its season ... wait, you mean Friday? Like this Friday? Wow, that sneaked up on me. Guess I should do a preview or something. Anyway, we play Gardner-Webb this Friday at the Cassell. Go and be loud.

Hopefully I'll get something up on the basketball team before then.

Men's Soccer Ends

The Hokies men's soccer team will end its season Tuesday in the ACC Tournament against NC State. The Hokies went 0-8 in the ACC one year after making the College Cup. The Hokies lost a lot of talent off last season's team, so hopefully this season was just a rebuilding year.

Still, 0-8? Jeez.

Hokie Hockey on Fire

Yes, it's a club team, but the Hokies have won nine consecutive games, including the Commonwealth Cup championship this weekend with wins over UVa and Richmond.

This week, they travel South to face ECU and NC State. Their next home games are Nov. 21 and 22 against Duke and Georgetown in Roanoke.
