Young runners start off strong

This weekend's men's and women's cross-country races at Darden Towe Park in Charlottesville provided the teams with a chance to start their season at a place they won't have the opportunity to race at again this season -- home. The Cav men's and women's squads took advantage of their 1999 home debut by placing second in the women's race and third in the men's battle. "I'm enthused -- it was a good beginning for us even though we're real young," Cav cross-country coach Evan "Buz" Male said. The Virginia women scored 57 points to earn the runner-up position to James Madison's 19 and the men tallied 84 points to finish behind Liberty's 15 and William & Mary's 50. "The women did a good job to come in second, they ran tough," Male said.

Tigers knock down Cavaliers, 33-14

CLEMSON, S.C.--When a bruised secondary already thin on veterans goes up against a fast-paced offense that often features five receivers, you don't have to be a rocket scientist to do the math.

Women's soccer wins home opener

We know Angela Hucles. But who are these other folks? Hucles extended her Virginia scoring record and rookies Kelly Worden and Meredith Rhodes tallied their first career goals as the No.

Mistakes, poor execution add up to tough loss

CLEMSON, S.C.--With 6:11 to go in the third quarter and the Tigers holding a gargantuan 33-0 lead, the ABC affiliate in Clemson decided to cut away to the game between Notre Dame and Purdue. It was only then that Virginia succeeded in finding the end zone. That kind of too little, too late success on offense embodied what was a very forgettable day for Virginia football. So what happened exactly?

Runners start off at Lou Onesty

A young cross-country team embarks on their season tomorrow at the University's Lou Onesty Invitational at Darden Towne Park. Regional rivals William & Mary and James Madison are expected to field strong teams in the Cavaliers' only home meet this season. Aside from two third years on the women's team, and one fifth year and three third years on the men's team, the team is comprised of first and second years. On the men's side, top runners third-year Bob Thiele, fifth-year Damond Cromer and second-year transfer Justin Wood will not be competing.

Trout swallows up Appalachian State

Led by Ryan Trout's four goals, the Virginia men's soccer team avenged Sunday's loss with an 8-1 thrashing of a helpless Appalachian State squad in front of 1,038 spectators at Klockner Stadium last night. Trout, a third-year forward, tied the Cavalier record for goals in a single game by registering four goals on seven shots.

Braver than the average man:

If the kick were just a few feet shorter, the latest chapter in the saga of Todd Braverman's Virginia career could have been entitled "Gone with the Wind." Thankfully for the third-year kicker and for the Cavalier fans, the plot took a bit of a twist. When Braverman's 50-yard, wind-aided field goal cleared the crossbar with 27 seconds left to beat North Carolina, all of the misfortune of the third year's roller-coaster career virtually was erased. "It's very redeeming," Braverman said.
