Recapping the weekend that was in Virginia athletics
It was a busy -- and successful weekend -- for Virginia's spring sports teams. Here's a recap of what happened:
BASEBALL: No. 2 Virginia played a three-game series in College Park against a Maryland program that is rebuilding. You can tell in the results how different the two programs are right now. The Cavaliers swept the Terrapins and outscored them, 43-7, including a 27-4 victory in the back end of Friday's doubleheader. Steven Proscia hit three home runs during the weekend.
MEN'S LACROSSE: No. 2 Virginia recaptured the nation's No. 1 ranking and secured the ACC championship after (finally) beating Duke in the semifinals and overcoming Maryland in the final. The star of the weekend appeared to be goalie Adam Ghitelman, who had 16 saves in the final, which was on his 21st birthday.
SOFTBALL: In a three-game series, Virginia swept Boston College. The Cavaliers are now 32-18 and second place in the ACC. They play third-place Florida State this weekend.
TENNIS: No. 1 Virginia won the ACC tournament with a 4-2 victory over Duke.
ROWING: No. 3 Virginia won the ACC championship for the 10th time in 11 seasons.
TRACK & FIELD: At the prestigious Penn Relays in Philadelphia, Virginia's 4x800m relay team snapped a 67-year drought in Championship of America relay titles -- the second-longest period of time between championship titles in Penn Relays history.
