#UVAMBB incoming first-year Jay Huff did his best Dr. J and Michael Jordan impersonation by dunking fro the free throw line recently at the men’s practice gym at John Paul Jones Arena. Fellow first-year Kyle Guy filmed the video that you can watch on Twitter.
On Saturday, the entire #UVAWBB team plus some of the staff volunteered at a Habitat for Humanity build. The players were helping put the finishing touches on some townhomes here in Charlottesville that will be moved into in August. Some players worked on landscaping, moving around and shoveling decorative rock, while the rest worked on staining the upper portions of the front decks.
Members of the Canadian Olympic Rowing Team, including former #UVARow standouts Christine Roper and Susanne Grainger (front row) recently rocked their collegiate uniforms in preparation for the Rio Olympics.
Former #UVAMSoc standout Scott Thomsen has joined the Richmond Kickers’ roster for the duration of the 2016 USL season. Thomsen signed last December with the New York Red Bulls of MLS. He was waived in March. He played on the Red Bulls’ National Premier Soccer League championship team in 2014.
Five #UVAWLax incoming freshmen, Charlotte Campbell, Sarah Platt, Samantha Mueller, Nora Bowen and Lauren Martin,Â competed in the debut of the ILWomen Committed Division two-day event that took place at Goucher College in Towson, Md. The event, for girls in the Class of 2016 who have committed to play D1 Lacrosse, features four teams and each plays four games. The girls also listened to former UVA player and 2015 graduate Caroline Seats speak on behalf of the One Love Foundation Sunday evening.
