The weekend that was in Virginia sports
BASEBALL: Good luck finding a hotter team than No. 1 Virginia, which swept Duke this weekend and is on a 10-game winning streak. Danny Hultzen has to be considered among the top pitchers in the country, validating that title with a complete game (4 H, 2 ER, 13 K, 0 BB) to advance to 7-1 with a 2.00 ERA. Jarrett Parker reverted to 2009 form on Saturday by going 5 for 5 with two home runs.
MEN'S LACROSSE: No. 1 Virginia finished the regular season with an 18-9 win over Robert Morris. Thirteen seniors were honored, but it was sophomore Chris Bocklet who drew headlines with six goals and three assists. The Cavaliers likely secured the No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament, which starts in two weeks.
WOMEN'S LACROSSE: No. 4 Virginia lost to No. 2 Northwestern, 11-8, in overtime on Friday. It was the final tune-up before the NCAA tournament.
SOFTBALL: Virginia and Florida State split a pair of 2-1 decisions, keeping the Cavaliers in second place in the ACC heading into the conference tournament in two weeks.
GOLF: The Virginia men won the Cavalier Classic in their only appearance in Charlottesville. It was also the final match before the NCAA tournament.
ROWING: No. 3 Virginia swept Penn on senior day.
