Women’s Lacrosse Eliminated From NCAA Tournament; Virginia Tech Clinches Commonwealth Clash

John Sung has done a great job with the women’s lacrosse program.

On April 26, the Virginia Tech women’s lacrosse team won their first ACC Tournament game in school history, beating Duke 13-12.  The next day they were knocked out of the tournament by No. 5 North Carolina, who was one of just two ACC teams to beat the Hokies all season.

Unfortunately, Virginia Tech ended up in UNC’s bracket in the NCAA Tournament, and they got similar results.  They beat Georgetown 13-10 on Friday for the program’s first-ever NCAA Tournament victory, but they were eliminated by the Tar Heels 17-8 on Sunday afternoon.  Both NCAA Tournament games took place in Raleigh.

Nevertheless, it was a wildly successful second season for head coach John Sung.  His team accomplished the following achievements…

1: Most wins in school history.
2: Most ACC wins in school history.
3: First year with multiple All-ACC performers.
4: First ACC Tournament victory.
5: First NCAA Tournament berth and victory.

Big things appear to be on the horizon for women’s lacrosse at Virginia Tech.

  1. I hope we can keep Coach Sung! He knows how to find winners and win, and I like that very much about him.

  2. We need a twitter feed for how many days we have held the Clash title, just like the Commonwealth Cup!
