(New) Hoos With Trophies

The US Swim Trials began on Sunday, and UVA is already making a splash. Congratulations to incoming swimmer Emma Weyant who won the 400IM. She will officially be named as a member of the US’s Tokyo squad at the conclusion of the trials, but the victory is her ticket punch to the Olympics. As this race recap from Swimming World magazine points out, one of the people that Weyant passed in the final leg of the race is former Cavalier and 2016 Olympian Leah Smith. Weyant was the 2019 national champion in the event. Weyant was a member of UVA’s 2020-21 recruiting class but deferred enrollment to train for the Olympics.

Hoo Debut

Congratulations to former @UVABaseball infielder Ernie Clement who made his Major League debut last night for Cleveland. Clement came on as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning of the loss against the Mariners.
