How Sweet It Is

It’s not like we needed another reason to look forward to this Friday’s Paint The Town Orange event on the Charlottesville Downtown Mall (6-8:30 p.m, Sept. 2), but we have a giant one thanks to My Chocolate Shoppe. Store owner Mary Schellhammer has spent the last month sculpting a life-size UVA football player made entirely of chocolate. She will unveil the sculpture on Friday at the pep rally.


#UVABase junior pitcher Tommy Doyle finished his summer stint in the NECBL with a 1.62 ERA and 40 strikeouts in his 33 innings pitched, earning him the title of the league’s top prospect, according to Baseball America.
