MLS Hoo of the Week
Former #UVAMSOC player Chris Tierney (2004-07) was named to the MLS Team of the Week this week. The New England Revolution defender had two assists in a 2-1 victory over Toronto FC on Saturday (Sept. 23). The Revolution are four points out of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with four regular season matches left.
Hall of Fame Hoo
Congratulations to former #UVAMLAX attackman Doug Knight on being inducted into the US Lacrosse Hall of Fame over the weekend. Knight enjoyed an All-American career at UVA, earning first team honors on attack in 1996 and 1997 and second team accolades in 1995. He was also selected as the recipient of the Raymond Enners Award as the national player of the year in 1996. His former coach at UVA and fellow Hall of Famer Dom Starsia wrote this eloquent piece in June for US Lacrosse Magazine detailing Knight’s unlikely path to the Hall of Fame.
@iamjkyrabrown was making it rain in the #UVAWBB practice gym yesterday as members of the team were participating in the #LetItFlyChallenge, the latest viral craze that encourages people to make three-point shots and then challenge their friends to match their prowess. Check out the video here.
#UVAFH senior midfielder @tara_vittese was profiled this week in a feature on NCAA.com. Vittese, a two-time National Player of the Year, is currently leading the country in goals and points and is second in assists.
