Today, we are sharing two stories and a blurb following up on three items that have been covered here on the blog. It’s always nice to see how things are progressing.
First up, #UVASB assistant coach Kaleigh Rafter continues to help lead Team Canada. This time, she has a couple of other Hoos there cheering her on. Head coach Joanna Hardin and fellow assistant Katie Repole have made their way to Japan to support fellow her as the Canadians earned an 8-1 victory over the Netherlands overnight to advance to the final six of the WBSC World Championship.
Next, UVA Today ran an in-depth feature on former #UVAFB standout Chris Long and his work off the field such as his Waterboys project, his funding of youth scholarships and other community service and activism.
And finally, the New York Post discusses former #UVAMBB fan- (and blog-)favorite “Joey Buckets” Joe Harris and why he embodies the blue-collar work ethic of his NBA team, the Brooklyn Nets. Harris signed a two-year deal worth $16 million dollars this offseason.
