A 10th inning walk-off homerun by Misty Hall gave Virginia Tech a 1-0 victory over the Louisville Cardinals in the first game of NCAA Softball Regionals on Friday afternoon. It took the Hokies three extra innings to do it, but they advanced to the winner’s bracket. They’ll take on the winner of the Tennessee/Winthrop game tomorrow at noon on ESPN2.

Angela Tincher, as usual, was dominant. She pitched all 10 innings, allowing just one hit and walking three batters. She struck out 19 batters during the game. Despite Virginia Tech’s lack of production at the plate, she kept the Hokies in it until Hall’s walk-off won the game in the bottom of the 10th.

Tech wasn’t very efficient offensively for the entire game. They did manage seven hits and earned three walks, but they left 10 runners on base throughout the course of the game. Hall went 3-fo-5 during the game, including the game-winning homerun.

If you haven’t seen the Hokies play this year, you’ll have your chance tomorrow on ESPN2 at noon.

Peter Rose Arrested

2008 defensive back signee Peter Rose was arrested at Amherst County High School on Friday morning. Rose has been charged with two misdemeanor charges of distribution of marijuana. He also faces two felony charges of distribution of drugs within 1,000 feet of a school.

Six other current and former Amherst County High School students were also charged. They all allegedly sold drugs to an undercover deputy who was posing as a high school student. This is the culmination of a 10-month investigation.

Rose was the #28 recruit in the state of Virginia on TSL’s Top 30 list. He was the #16 recruit according to The Roanoke Times. He led Amherst to back-to-back state championships as their starting quarterback, and he was named the AA Player of the Year for his efforts during the 2007 season.

The news is very surprising, as Rose had been considered the model student athlete. He carried a good GPA, and was voted Mr. Amherst County. Virginia Tech has had no comment on the situation. Rose was scheduled to enroll for fall semester, and was expected to red shirt this year.
