Softball America totally overlooks VT in their Power 5 SB Predictions

The article predicts all 5 Power Conferences and had this to say about the ACC:


"Heads were certainly turned during the 2021 season when second-year program Clemson captured the ACC's regular-season title. The Tigers may very well make some noise for a second straight year, as six of their nine starters will return, including their biggest star in current redshirt sophomore Valerie Cagle.

"Duke also made some serious noise as the upstart Cinderella story of the ACC Tournament, which the Blue Devils won for the first time in program history in 2021.

"While Florida State did not perform as well as it typically does during last year's regular season, the Seminoles certainly made up for it in the postseason. They advanced to the WCWS championship series and came one win away from capturing the program's second national championship.

"With redshirt junior Kathryn Sandercock and redshirt senior Danielle Watson leading the way in the circle in 2022, we expect Florida State to once again reign supreme in the ACC."

Well, they are certainly entitled to their opinion, but some good research would have added one more paragraph:

There is also Super Regional participant Virginia Tech lurking in the background. The Hokies, who won 2 out of 3 games against FSU and Clemson last season and 3 of 4 versus the Blue Devils, return every starter along with ACC Pitcher of the Year Keely Rochard.

This old guy is simply shaking his head, but the good news is that the Hokies can simply fly under the radar.
