Junior catcher Katie Park had tremendous success at the plate Friday. In the 8-1 win over Texas A&M Corpus-Christi, Park went three for four with a home run and five RBIs. 

The Cavaliers (3-7, 0-0 ACC) had a rough weekend at the UTSA Tournament, going 1-4.

It was a competitive weekend, nonetheless, as Virginia lost three games by only one run. In their first game of the weekend against Tulsa, the Cavaliers kept the score close until the fourth inning when the Golden Hurricane (8-2, 0-0 AAC) scored four runs. Tulsa would go on to win the game 4-3.

Junior catcher Katie Park had a big game against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi (7-3, 0-0 SC), driving in five runs. Freshman pitcher Lacy Smith had a solid afternoon as well, as she gave up only one run in a complete game effort to help Virginia win 8-1.

The Cavaliers had a tough day Saturday. Virginia committed seven errors in its game against North Dakota (2-7, 0-0 BSC), and the Fighting Hawks were able to take advantage and win the ballgame 10-6.

Against the University of Texas-San Antonio (5-5, 0-0 C-USA), the Cavaliers started off hot, grabbing a 4-1 lead. However, errors proved costly, as they allowed the Roadrunners to climb back into the game and win 5-4.

Sunday, in its second game of the weekend against UTSA, Virginia lost another competitive game on a walk-off base hit by the score of 5-4, despite hitting three home runs. The Cavaliers will look to bounce back this weekend as they head to Spartanburg and Greenville, S.C. for the USC Upstate Tournament.
