Show off your Wahoo pride and cheer on your Cavaliers as they host big ACC rivals this homecoming weekend! The tennis, cross country, field hockey, football, and soccer teams are all competing in Charlottesville and need your support showing their opponents Hoo’s boss. Take a break from studying and enjoy one or more of these great homecoming games!
The Virginia men’s tennis team hosts the 10th annual UVa Fall Classic at the Snyder Center. The men’s phenomenal season continued earlier this week as freshman Mitchell Frank took home the ITA All-American singles championship. This tournament features players from 15 schools including ACC foes Maryland and Virginia Tech. The action takes place Friday morning through Sunday afternoon allowing plenty of time for you to support your Cavs!
The No. 19 men’s and No. 1
6 women’s cross country teams host the 3rd annual Panorama Farms Invitational on Friday afternoon in their last meet before the ACC Championships. The men’s 8K race begins at 4:00 p.m. and the women’s 6K at 4:45 p.m. Both teams dominated their last home meet as the men finished second and the women achieved a perfect score in their victory at the Lou Onesty Open. The scenic Panorama Farms, located less than 20 minutes from grounds, provides the perfect setting for a fun sports-filled afternoon.
The women’s field hockey team strives for their first ACC win against No. 2 North Carolina Saturday afternoon. Despite having a disappointing season so far losing nine of their sixteen games, the Cavs showed their fighting power in their 1-2 loss to No. 4 Connecticut. A victory this weekend would serve as a much-needed confidence boost. The game begins at the University Hall Turf Field Saturday at 1 p.m.
Mike London and the Virginia football team (3-2) face their toughest challenge this season hosting No. 12 Georgia Tech Saturday at 3:30 p.m. The Cavaliers must harness their bye-week advantage and minimize turnovers in order to defeat the undefeated Yellow Jackets. The game will mark previous UVa head coach Al Groh’s first return to Scott Stadium, since his firing in 2009, as Georgia Tech’s defensive coordinator. Be sure to “make some noise” with your fellow classmates and alumni as they fight for their first ACC win; and cross your fingers for multiple singings of “The Good Ole Song!”
Coming off their third overtime win Thursday night against N.C. State, the No. 8 women’s soccer team (10-3-2) hosts Clemson Sunday afternoon. The Cavaliers stand at the top of the ACC leader-board in points, goals, and assists. The squad finishes their regular season against the lowest ranked ACC teams with a three-game homestand. Finish off an exciting homecoming weekend 1 p.m. at Klöckner Stadium.
