The Cavaliers moved back into the top-five of the IWLCA rankings after defeating No. 11 Louisville, 17-9, last Sunday (April 12) at KlÃ¶ckner Stadium. Senior Casey Bocklet (South Salem, N.Y.) won her third ACC Offensive Player of the Week award on Monday, the third time in the last four weeks she has earned the honor, after scoring four goals with three assists against the Cardinals. Bocklet ranks fifth in the ACC, averaging 3.80 points per game. Bocklet, with 185 career points, needs eight more points to tie for ninth place on the Virginia career points list.
Senior Courtney Swan (Vero Beach, Fla.) scored a pair of goals with three assists against Louisville, her fifth game this year contributing at least five points. Swan continues to pace the conference, averaging 1.87 assists per game. Swan currently ranks 10th on the Virginia career assists list with 68 and needs two more to move into a tie for ninth place.
Redshirt senior Liza Blue (Butler, Md.) scored two goals with an assist against Louisville, her 14th-consecutive game contributing two or more points. Blue is averaging 2.47 goals per game, ranking ninth in the ACC. Blue has scored 129 goals in her Cavaliers career and needs one more goal to move into a tie for ninth place on the Virginia career goals list.
Virginia Tech is the only unranked ACC team and is 0-6 in the ACC, but lost a close 13-11 game last week against Boston College. Megan Will leads the team with 56 points on 45 goals and 11 assists. Goalkeeper Meagh Graham is fifth in the ACC with 2.27 ground balls per game.
The Cavaliers are 19-1 all-time against the Hokies, with the lone loss coming in 2012 when Virginia Tech held on for a 10-9 upset victory in Blacksburg, one of just four losses by UVa to an unranked team since 2007.
