Look Hoos Back

Members of the @UVAFootball team reported to Grounds on Sunday. Voluntary workouts begin later this week.

Must Follow

Welcome to @Twitter, @malcolmbrogdon7!!!! One of the former @UVAMensHoops All-American’s first tweets was this one, wishing luck to NASCAR driver Sam Mayer who was sporting a new paint job for Friday night’s ARCA race at the Lucas Oil Speedway in Indianapolis. The car, which finished second in the race, had a sponsorship by the Brogdon Family Foundation, a non-profit organization that seeks to create a more equitable world by empowering children, families, and communities to reach their potential and thrive. You can read more about the race and the sponsorship here.

Hoos Care

A pair of Cavaliers, twin sisters Hailey and Myla Barnett, have created an Instagram account called Athletes 4 Black Lives Matter where collegiate, professional and former athletes promote their story and support Black Lives Matter by posting video messages telling their stories. Bennett Conlin of the Daily Progress spoke with Hailey, a member of the @UVARowing team and Myla, a @UVAWomensLax player, in this Daily Progress article.


Last week, EuroCup Women took a look at the all-time statistical leaders from the FIBA EuroCup championships. Former @UVAWomensHoops standout Sharnee Zoll ranks ninth in career assists with 233 assists in the 32 EuroCup games (in the four times her teams qualified for the event) she played during her international career. That equates to 7.3 assists per game, the second-highest average among the top-10 assist dishers.

Rookie Hoo

@UVAWomensSoccer alum Zoe Morse is in her rookie season with the Chicago Red Stars of the NWSL and saw her first action in the team’s opener last week in the Challenge Cup in Utah. Her hometown paper, the Lansing State Journal, caught up with the defender to talk to her about the experience of playing in her first NWSL game alongside USWNT standouts like UVA alum Morgan (Brian) Gautrat and against young superstars like the Washington Spirit’s Rose Lavelle. Read the interview here.
