Virginia athletics weekend preview
Weekends during the football and basketball seasons often end in misery for Virginia fans, but the spring teams have proven to be among the best in the nation. Here's what to expect in Virginia sports entering the final weekend of the academic year:
BASEBALL: No. 1 Virginia visits Duke this weekend in Durham, N.C. The Cavaliers won nine of their last 10 games, including a weekend sweep over Maryland and Tuesday's win over No. 10 Coastal Carolina. The Blue Devils are 25-18, but only 7-14 in the ACC.
MEN'S LACROSSE: No. 1 Virginia hosts Robert Morris in the final game of the regular season on Saturday. It's Senior Day, but expect another home game for the Cavaliers on May 15 in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. Virginia won the ACC championship last weekend and is 12-1 entering the season finale.
WOMEN'S LACROSSE: No. 4 Virginia closes the regular season with a big game at No. 2 Northwestern on Friday night. The Wildcats have been a powerhouse in recent seasons, and the game features two teams hopeful of making a run in the NCAA tournament.
SOFTBALL: Virginia visits Florida State in a weekend series with ACC implications.The Cavaliers are second in the ACC at 12-5, while the Seminoles are one spot behind U-Va. at 10-8. The teams play two games, so the Cavaliers can keep pace with at least one win.
TRACK & FIELD: Virginia visits Stanford after a strong showing at last weekend's Penn Relays.
MEN'S GOLF: Virginia hosts the Cavalier Classic, which is the only home event of the season for U-Va.
ROWING: Virginia hosts Penn in a matchup between Athletic Director Craig Littlepage's alma mater and his current employer.
