Cavalier midfield duo ranks with ACC's best

Watching a Virginia women's soccer game, Katie Tracy is one of the first players to stand out. She's yelling encouragement to her teammates from her spot at center midfield, out-fighting her opponents for headers and loose balls and generally doing all the things a reigning team MVP and "unsung hero" should do. Lori Lindsey is often harder to spot.

Field hockey team remains unbeaten

The Cavalier field hockey team found a way to add to their undefeated streak, pulling out a 2-0 victory over the Richmond Spiders (4-2) in the pre-hurricane conditions at U-Hall Turf Field last night. After a slow start on the rain-drenched artificial surface, the fifth-ranked Cavs (5-0) began the play that has put them in the win column all season. "We got out to a slow start, but that is because Richmond really came out and came ready to play," Virginia coach Jessica Wilk said.

Dick Stockton's career on the pro tennis tour may be over. But the Virginia men's tennis coach's success on the professional level is far from complete. Last week, Stockton and Tom Gullickson won the Men's 45-and-over Doubles competition at the U.S.

Welsh looks to heal wounds of defense

Of all the questions facing Cav coach George Welsh this week as he looks to improve upon Saturday's collapse at Clemson, the biggest is "Where do I begin?" After being shellacked by the Tigers in Death Valley 33-14, Welsh is left to look at a secondary that had multiple coverage breakdowns, a defensive line that made mental errors and lacked a pass rush and an offense that was blanked in the first half. Welsh would never be in such a position, however, had it not been for the rash of injuries and suspensions his team has faced this season. "Between the academic suspensions, the assault suspensions and the injuries, we're hurting," Welsh said.
