In this edition of Virginia Tech News, several athletes inked their commitment to the Hokies in various sports, some postseason awards, and more.
Virginia Tech men gear up for South Carolina
The Hokies men’s basketball team will take the court at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte tonight at 9:30 in a non-conference game against South Carolina. The Hokies are coming off a 100-55 win over Coppin State Monday night in their season opener. The game can be seen on the ACC Network. The Gamecocks are picked to finish last in the SEC and this feels like it’s a must-win early in the season for Virginia Tech.
Ryan Jones makes it official for men’s basketball
One month ago, forward Ryan Jones committed to Mike Young and the Hokies instead of staying in his backyard of Gainesville, Florida, and he chose to come to Blacksburg next season.
Jones joins Tyler Johnson in committing to Virginia Tech.
Virginia Tech softball signs seven recruits
Virginia Tech softball announced that the program officially got seven commitments from the Class of 2024. Pitchers Reagan Troy and Bree Carrico, along with outfielder Nora Abromavage, infielders Charlotte Moore, and Mattie Jane Abernathy, and utility players Jordan Lynch and Jayden Jones are going to play for coach Pete D’Amour. This is a nice incoming class for the Hokies.
Uwimana earns ACC honor
It was a good bounce-back 2023 season for the men’s soccer team who lost in the first round of the ACC Tournament to North Carolina, but Now Uwimana had a very impressive rookie season in Blacksburg.
Uwimana was named to the ACC All-Freshman team after recording two goals and five points. He joins Misei Yoshizawa and Danny Flores to earn the honor in the last three seasons. The Hokies also announced the signings of Olafur Floki Stephensen from Iceland and Tino Vasquez from Illinois.
