On Tuesday, Henrik Wiersholm, Harrison Richmond and Aswin Lizen of the #UVAMTennis team helped the students at Greer Elementary celebrate #ReadAcrossAmerica Day. The March 2 date for this national celebration was chosen because it is Dr. Seuss’ birthday.
#UVAMBB standout Malcolm Brogdon and other key seniors around the country were asked what would be their advice to the freshman version of themselves in this ESPN piece.
Former #UVAMBB standout @CoryAlexanderVA, an announcer for Raycom Sports and the ACC Network, was honored last week with a Midsouth Regional Emmy Award for his work on the documentary “The Charles Scott Story.” Also receiving the award in the Documentary/Historical category were Raycom’s Jeremy Williams, Richard Brooke, Max Brooke and David Daly. Scott was the first African American scholarship student-athlete at North Carolina where he was a two-time All-American.
Future Emmy Winner?
