Super Hoos

The story of the day was @UVABaseball’s triumph in Columbia. Congratulations poured in from far and wide, including from the Virginia governor’s mansion (below), but our favorite was from Adam Gelof, father of current Hoos Zack and Jake Gelof (pictured above).

The Daily Progress has plenty of coverage of the moment, from a story on the grand slam heroics to a more traditional recap of the game, series and all the points before that led to this moment.

Another Ticket Punched (probably)

The Omahoos weren’t the only ones punching tickets yesterday. Oddly enough, Paige Madden was punching a ticket FROM Omaha, where the US Swim Trials are taking place. Madden finished second in the 400 free. Traditionally, the top-two finishers in an event will be named to the squad headed to Tokyo for the Olympics in July. She will find out for sure at the end of the meet when the roster for Tokyo is announced. For the second-straight day, it was a race between Hoos for that spot as Leah Smith finished third in the event.
