AROUND THE GROUNDS NUMBERS 2 top goal scorers in ACC field hockey at the end of the regular season hail from the Cavaliers — Tara Vittese, who led the league with 17, and CALEIGH FOUST, who was tied for second with 13. Both ranked in the nation's top 35 for goals per game, and the team entered the ACC Tournament as the conference co-champions and No. 1 seed. 3.50 goals per game average of the No. 3 women's soccer team, which led the ACC and ranked second nationally through Nov. 2. 4 straight years that the Cavaliers' varsity eight has earned the title as the top collegiate boat in the Championship Eights at the Prestigious Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston.

Only one rookie in the country had more stops, and Blanding would be the fifth first-year in program history to pace the team in tackles. PHOTO BY MATT RILEY/ COURTESY UVA
