Cavaliers face Duke in ACC Tourney opener

It was just over a month ago on March 22 that the No. 14 Virginia women’s lacrosse team took a long, somber bus ride from Durham, N.C. back to Charlottesville. This was not the way the Cavaliers had expected their season to go. The preseason excitement was gone, as Virginia had fallen to 4-6 and 0-3 in the ACC after a 16-11 loss against No. 7 Duke.

Despite a loss Sunday against Maryland, the Virginia women’s lacrosse team still felt it was playing its best of lacrosse of the season. On Wednesday night, the No. 15 Cavaliers (9-7, 3-4 ACC) proved that to be the case as they closed their regular season with a dominant win against in-state rival Virginia Tech (7-8, 0-6 ACC), 17-12.


Cavaliers seek fourth straight win on senior night

Three straight wins have given the No. 16 Virginia women’s lacrosse team a much-needed jolt of confidence. The first two were dominant performances against Old Dominion and American, respectively, but the win against No. 11 Notre Dame on Saturday is where they showed true progress against a conference opponent.

Two weeks ago, the Cavaliers found themselves in a bind. Sitting at two games below .500, Virginia was essentially in do-or-die mode. A pair of wins against Old Dominion and American were vital to the Cavaliers’ chance to make their 20th consecutive NCAA tournament under coach Julie Myers.
