Elizabeth Kitley & Georgia Amoore win awards

Tuesday, Elizabeth Kitley won her third consecutive ACC Player of the Year Award and it was not the only award she took home. For the fourth time, she made the All-ACC First team and was named to the All-ACC Defense.

Point guard Georgia Amoore made her second straight All-ACC First Team averaging 8 points a game and the assist leader in the conference. She is coming off a 39-point effort against Virginia Sunday night.

Felisha Legette-Jack of Syracuse won the ACC Coach of the Year Award with 293 votes. Kenny Brooks was second with 214 and Wes Moore of North Carolina State finished third.

Brent Pry adds to staff

Wit spring practice ready to begin, Virginia Tech football coach Brent Pry added Gunter Brewer to the program as Director of High School Relations. He replaces Glenwood Ferebee who left for a high school head coaching position.

Brewer was most recently the wide receivers/passing game coordinator at the University of Maryland until 2022.

Softball game canceled

Coming off their sweep over last weekend against Notre Dame at home, the Virginia Tech softball team was scheduled to hit the road for Kentuckey this week for four games, but instead they'll have to settle for just three.

Wednesday's non-conference game at Eastern Kentucky has been canceled. The Hokies will look to play a three-game weekend ACC series at Louisville, their second conference series of the season. In the latest Softball Collegiate Top 25, Virginia Tech moved up to No. 15 with a 15-3-1 record that they will take into their weekend series with the Cardinals.
