Off we go!


The 2018-19 season officially begins tonight when #UVAWSOC hosts Colgate at 7 p.m. at Klöckner Stadium. Both #UVAFH and #UVAVB host home scrimmages on Saturday against JMU. If you need to cram for the start of the season, we’ve got some study guides for you, courtesy of the Daily Progress. Ron Counts shares the story of Mia Hoen-Beck’s return to the soccer pitch after three ACL tears. (Bonus women’s soccer story here from CBS19’s Damon Dillman on Anna Sumpter, who also is coming back from her third ACL tear)


Sam Blum shares the story of sisters Izzy and Annie McDonough, a senior and a freshman on the field hockey squad.


Blum also takes a look at the progress that the volleyball team is making under second-year head coach Aaron Smith.
