In this edition of Virginia Tech Hokies News, Megan Duffy adds key coaches to her staff, the football team is getting a key transfer to visit this upcoming week, the Hokies softball team sweeps Georgia Tech, and more.

Softball sweeps Georgia Tech

The Hokies softball team improved to 35-9-1 overall and 17-4 in the ACC with a weekend sweep of Georgia Tech. Virginia Tech won the opener Friday night, 8-4, Game 2 Saturday 10-4 and Game 3 Sunday 11-2.

It was another weekend with the long-ball for the Hokies who got two home runs from Michelle Chatfield and Addy Greene and one each from Cori McMillan and Trinity Martin. The Hokies will host Virginia Tuesday and Marshall Wednesday before a three-game weekend series next weekend at Syracuse.

Megan Duffy continues to build staff

New women's basketball coach Megan Duffy continues to build her staff for the 2024-25 season at Virginia Tech. While she's building her staff, the Virginia Tech and Kentucky connection continues. A month after Kenny Brooks left Blacksburg for Lexington, Duffy is bringing former Kentucky assistant coach Jen Hoover to Virginia Tech.

Hoover has good knowledge of the ACC as she went to Wake Forest and she joins Sharnee Zoll-Norman and Itoro Coleman. The past few days have also been huge for Duffy in terms of retainment of the roster with Samyha Suffren and Carys Baker announcing that they are returning next season to play for Duffy and the new staff.

Virginia Tech football getting transfer target visit

The spring football transfer window is open for another week and it's clear that Virginia Tech coach Brent Pry has needs for the 2024 season. Another offensive lineman is needed, but so too is a quarterback. Dylan Wittke, who entered spring practices in a battle with Pop Watson for the backup spot behind Kyron Drones entered the transfer portal last week after Pry said that Watson was ahead of Wittke on the depth chart.

Now this week, according to Kolby Crawford of 247Sports, UCLA transfer Collin Schlee is scheduled for a visit to Virginia Tech on April 27. Schlee is a dual-threat signal caller and last season for the Bruins, he finished the season with a good performance against Boise State in the Los Angeles Bowl in December. He would be a very nice fit for Pry and offensive coordinator Tyler Bowen next season with Watson behind Drones.

Women's lacrosse eliminated from ACC Tournament

It was not the ending the women's lacrosse team was hoping for. Seeded eighth in the ACC Tournament, the Hokies were eliminated by ninth-seeded Louisville, 13-11, Sunday in Blacksburg and saw their season come to an end.
