Virginia Men’s Tennis: A look back at the 2017-18 season

Virginia Men’s Tennis: A look back at the 2017-18 season

After three straight NCAA titles, the Hoos struggle. After three straight seasons (and four of the last five) that ended with the Cavaliers hoisting the NCAA championship trophy, the Virginia men’s tennis team crashed back to Earth in 2017-18. The Hoos finished with an overall record of 14-13 (5-7 ACC) and fell to Columbia in the second round of the NCAA tournament. This was the first season under new head coach and Director of Tennis Andres Pedroso. Later this week, we’ll take a deep dive into the issues that the Cavaliers had to deal with this season, including youth, inexperience,...

UVA Squash’s inaugural varsity seasons a success

UVA Squash’s inaugural varsity seasons a success

Both teams finished in the top-15 and are in a great position to improve their rankings in 2018-2019. Almost a year ago to this day, former Virginia Athletics Director Craig Littlepage announced the addition of men’s and women’s squash as the Virginia Cavaliers’ 26th and 27th varsity sports. The program had been a club sport for roughly 20 years, but when Boar’s Head received a $12.4 million gift six years ago to build out a new 33,000 square foot squash facility, now known as the McArthur Squash Center, that paved the way for the programs to have the resources they’d need to be...

Virginia commit Francisco Caffaro excels at FIBA U18 Americas Championship

Argentinian big man bumped up to a four-star recruit after outstanding performance. Virginia fans knew little of Argentinian big man Francisco Caffaro when he committed to Coach Bennett and the Cavaliers. Over the past week, Caffaro competed with Argentina in the FIBA U18 Americas Championship, helping his team to a third place finish. Argentina started off their tournament against Canada, who features some mid-to-high major talent on their roster and were considered one of the teams that could challenge the US team. Caffaro went off for 22 points on 9-for-15 shooting to go with seven...

Mendenhall discusses state of football program in remarks to BOV

Coach speaks to scheduling, roster composition According to Sam Blum of the Daily Progress, Virginia Cavaliers football coach Bronco Mendenhall made an unscheduled appearance before the University’s Board of Visitors this weekend and delivered a series of “State of the Program”-style remarks. One of the topics Mendenhall addressed was roster composition and how UVA’s talent level stacks up against ACC competition. Blum quotes Mendenhall as saying that only 27 players on the current roster are “ACC-caliber.” Blum’s story then points out that the current roster has 81 players,...

MLB Draft 2018: Three more Virginia Cavaliers go on Day 2

MLB Draft 2018: Three more Virginia Cavaliers go on Day 2

Yesterday was a day for celebration for Virginia Baseball. Not only were two more Wahoos selected early in the 2018 MLB Draft, but one of the top commits for next season was not drafted on Day 1. Mike Siani, that top recruit, wasn’t taken in the third round either. Instead, he went early on in the fourth round to the Cincinnati Reds as the 109th overall selection. That position comes with a draft slot of about $500k. There is thought that the Reds will try to save money with some other picks in order to sign Siani for over slot. Let’s hope, for the Hoos’ sake, that he decides not to...

Virginia’s Daniel Lynch, Jake McCarthy Drafted on Day One of MLB Draft

For the fifth straight year, Virginia Baseball has had a name called on the first day. Last year, the Virginia Cavaliers had two baseball players drafted in the top 10 of the MLB Draft. The results this year weren’t quite that stellar, but still, two Wahoos heard their names called yesterday during the first day of the Draft. As discussed yesterday, both Jake McCarthy and Daniel Lynch were expected to go early on, and neither was disappointed. Though most draft boards seemed to have McCarthy as the higher-rated player, Lynch was actually the first off the board. He was taken in the first...

Recent recruiting poses concerns for Virginia Basketball roster

Recent recruiting poses concerns for Virginia Basketball roster

Virginia enters next season with minimum proven depth. How did that happen? The 2018 basketball recruiting cycle is nearing its close and the Virginia Cavaliers basketball program will soon welcome three new freshmen to Grounds. For the second straight year, however, Tony Bennett’s haul isn’t particularly well-regarded in the recruiting rankings. Neither Kody Stattmann nor Kihei Clark, from Australia and California, respectively, are ranked inside the top-300 on the 247 composite rankings. Argentinian big man Francisco Caffaro checks in at 173rd. The situation is a far cry from 2016,...

Cavaliers’ Infielder to Transfer

With the UVa season coming to an end last week, the team has been going through their end of the year meetings with the coaching staff. Players discuss their previous season, what they are doing during the summer, and how things look going into next season. And it is no surprise that with these meetings comes disappointment with how much playing time someone saw and how that might not improve the next season. Like any other sport, with disappointment comes transferring. Rising 2nd year infielder Andrew Papantonis becomes the first to announce such a transfer. I will be transferring...
