The last few months have been a whirlwind for Virginia junior Paul Chang. Just this spring, he was competing on the club golf team, yearning to get the attention of the Cavalier coaching staff. But after an incredible round at the premier amateur golf championship in the United States, he finally was offered a spot on the Cavalier varsity team. In just his first match, Chang has already made a real impact on the team that he strived to get a mere place on.
Virginia men’s golf began their fall campaign on the road this weekend at the Valero Texas Collegiate in San Antonio. The starting group looked a little different than those of last year, with the absence of sophomore Ben James being the most glaring change. After a strenuous summer capped off with a Walker Cup appearance just last weekend, James was given the week off for rest. Instead, opportunities were given to two college debutants in freshman Josh Duangmanee and junior Paul Chang.
Coming off of a quarterfinals exit against Florida in last year’s NCAA Championship, Virginia has supplanted itself right back amongst the nation’s best with a No. 13 ranking heading into the beginning of the season. The Cavaliers took convincing wins at the Streamsong Invitational and the Hamptons Intercollegiate last year along with a string of wins and top-five finishes for individual players. With similar hopes ahead for the fall and spring seasons, here is a quick look into some of the old faces, as well as a few new ones, that are sure to make an impact on this year’s squad.
Virginia softball took to the road this weekend to Tallahassee, Fla. to face No. 4 Florida State (35-8, 13-2 ACC), a team who is currently atop the conference standings and ranked fourth in the nation. The Cavaliers (28-15, 8-10 ACC) dropped the series opener and finale, but fought hard to pick up game two against the national powerhouse.
Virginia softball took on rival Virginia Tech in Charlottesville this weekend for the Commonwealth Clash. The Hokies (31-9, 11-4 ACC) were coming off of three straight wins, one against Duke and two against Longwood, going into the series, while the Cavaliers (26-13, 7-8 ACC) had pulled off a series victory against North Carolina just last weekend.
The ACC released each one of their constituent team’s schedules for the upcoming 2023 football season earlier last week. Among them was that of the Cavaliers, who find themselves at a crucial crossroads in program history and especially in the tenure of Coach Tony Elliott. Many questions were raised at the end of the season and the team is looking for answers.
The woes that have lurked over conference play for Virginia (14-8, 3-8 ACC) continued Sunday with a 72-60 loss to rival No. 13 Virginia Tech (17-4, 7-4 ACC) in the Smithfield Commonwealth Clash at John Paul Jones Arena. The most recent loss plunged the Cavaliers into a four-game losing streak as Coach Amaka “Mox” Agugua-Hamilton and her team seem to be drifting further and further from their prime performance early in the season.
With a pair of games over the weekend against Minnesota and East Carolina, Virginia women’s basketball had a chance to continue its hot start to the Coach Amaka Agugua-Hamilton era in Charlottesville and stay undefeated. After a narrow win against the Golden Gophers (4-2, 0-0 Big Ten) Saturday and a dominant victory over the Pirates (5-2, 0-0 AAC) Sunday, the Cavaliers did just that.
Coming off of a disappointing fourth-place finish at the Inverness Collegiate, Virginia men’s golf ventured up to Maidstone Golf Club in East Hampton, N.Y.
