No. 20 Virginia women’s soccer began ACC play against Louisville Saturday night with a 1-1 draw. After a scoreless draw against Iowa last Thursday, the Cavaliers (5-0-3, 0-0-1 ACC) hoped to come back with a strong offensive performance. Meanwhile, the Cardinals (1-4-4, 0-0-1 ACC) hoped for a draw or a win to end their historical defeated streak in all 11 games against Virginia. Ultimately Virginia’s offense sputtered until late in the match, as the teams split points in their first conference game of the season.
This Sunday, No. 12 Virginia women’s soccer followed its Thursday night victory against West Virginia with a matchup against in-state opponent VCU. The Rams (1-3-2, Atlantic 10) hoped for a strong offensive performance against the Cavaliers (5-0-1, ACC) after a scoreless game against Maryland Thursday. Although VCU put one goal past Virginia’s defense, the Cavaliers held onto an early lead to claim their fourth home win of the season by a margin of 4-1.
Just a short drive from Grounds, the Rivanna Reservoir hosts one of Virginia’s most remarkable teams. Through foggy mornings and windy afternoons, Virginia women’s rowing trains from the impressive hilltop boathouse on the Rivanna, only leaving for strenuous land workouts on the rowing machines at Slaughter Recreation Center. The team’s accomplishments and contributions to the athletics department deserve recognition despite distance from Grounds and a lack of knowledge about rowing.
At 11 a.m. on a day of spring break, the feeling on Grounds is unrecognizable. The weather has warmed to a sunny 65 degrees and flowers begin to emerge from every bare tree. The usual jam of students along the McCormick Road bridge disappears, outdoor tables at corner restaurants are abandoned and a stillness surrounds the lawn as the multitude of picnicking students escape to the beach or travel back home. With nights becoming quiet by 9 p.m., the University seems to sleep for the week as it waits for students to arrive again. However, a hidden pulse of energy remains on the athletic fields by John Paul Jones Arena.
