The Cavaliers (8-9, 4-3 ACC) split a pair of games this weekend at home after doing the same last weekend on the road. The Cavs defeated N.C. State 3-1 Friday and suffered a heartbreaking loss to North Carolina 2-3 Saturday.

    Shut 'em out

    The Virginia field hockey team is on a roll after picking up two shutout wins this weekend against West Chester Saturday and Ursinus yesterday. The Cavaliers (7-4) have won four of their last five games and are in the midst of a three-game shutout streak.

    The lone goal in Virginia's 1-0 defeat of West Chester was junior midfielder Jessica Coleman's 30th career goal. Senior goalkeeper Becky Worthington had four saves, which included a block to a Golden Ram penalty stroke 12 minutes into the contest.
