¡Viva México!

@UVAWomensSoccer alumna Diana Ordoñez has been called to duty with the Meixcan Women’s National Team for two crucial matches against Anguilla (April 9) and Puerto Rico (April 12). México is tied with Puerto Rico atop Group A with six points, with México leading on goal differential. Anguilla has been eliminated from moving on, having given up 14 goals in games against Puerto Rico and Suriname (which México beat 9-0). Puerto Rico is largely seen as the toughest challenge México will face, with the winner of that match likely advancing to the Concacaf W Championship tournament, which will be held in Monterrey in July. The Concacaf W Championship will determine which teams play in the 2023 World Cup as well as the 2024 Summer Olympic Games. You can fire up Google translate and read more here. Or you can read about it from her NWSL team, the NC Courage.

Let’s Go Emma! Let’s Go Hoos!

2021 NCAA Singles Champion, @UVAWomensTennis sophomore Emma Navarro, is playing at the WTA 500-level Credit One Charleston Open. She is not only playing in it, she advanced to the second round after winning against No. 56 Madison Brengle on Tuesday. She spoke with the Tennis Channel after the victory and talks about facing her Wednesday opponent – No. 10 Ons Jabeur. There’s also a great piece in the Post-Courrier about Navarro’s ability to juggle collegiate tennis and her forays into professional tournaments.
