Mike Barber of the Richmond Times-Dispatch has written a wonderful series of articles about seniors on spring sport teams. These articles are feature stories about some of the student-athletes that have been affected by the loss of their final year, but really tell a well-rounded story about their lives as student-athletes. The first up was a great piece on @UVAMensLax’s Ryan Lamb and his scoring a goal in his impromptu Senior Day game.
Barber also had this piece on @UVABaseball’s Paul Kosanovich’s interesting path to being a member of the squad, which began on a Division II football field in Las Vegas (Las Vegas, New Mexico, that is). Read more about this interesting story here.
The Advocate, a newspaper in Baton Rouge, La., caught up with former Cavalier and US Olympic rower Meghan O’Leary, who believes the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics was the right thing to do.
Another pair of alumna, @UVAWomensSoccer’s Zoe Morse and @UVAWomensTennis’ Julia Elbaba, took part in a webinar on Friday called When I Grow Up, speaking on their childhood dreams of becoming professional athletes. Morse currently plays for the Chicago Red Stars and Elbaba is a professional tennis player. Give it a watch here.
