@UVAFootball alum and commentator Ahmad Hawkins shared his thoughts with @CBS19. There is a longer version of this interview on the station’s website that is well worth your time.
Speaking of things worth your time, @UVAWomensHoops alumna Dawn Staley penned an incredible piece published by The Players’ Tribune. This one is a MUST READ!
@UVAWomensSoccer legend Angela Hucles was selected by Virginia governor Ralph Northam to be one of the keynote speakers at a virtual graduation ceremony for the state’s high school seniors.

She speaks across the country on issues such as fighting homophobia in sports, gender equity, diversity and inclusion. Hucles is also an entrepreneur who has a real estate business and is the co-founder of Fueling Dynamic Leaders, an online Sports Nutrition & Leadership Academy for student-athletes.

As the Tennis Channel does their Roland Garros Rewind, they caught up with 2019 Australian Open semifinalist and UVA women’s tennis alum Danielle Collins. In it she discusses the hiatus from tennis and what’s been keeping her busy. You can see the interview and highlights here (starts at 27:26).
Congratulations to incoming softball player Mikayla Hogue who was named Iowa’s 2020 Gatorade State Player of the Year. You can read this capsule of her career from her local newspaper.
