On the evening of April 19, approximately 100 Hokies gathered at ‘Point Plaza at City Center’ to enjoy the annual Orange and Maroon Spring Dinner. Head Women’s soccer Coach, Chugger Adair, gave a very complete review of our up-and-coming women’s soccer program. After moving up from the assistant coaching role to the head job, he has continued to improve the program and has some big-time victories to show for it.
Although Coach Beamer did not make the trip, due to a weather-related shuffling of the Spring Practice schedule, Coach Cavanaugh stepped into the breech as the replacement and did an admirable job, as usual. Coach Cav pointed out there are some things at spring practice the head coach needs to be present for and that’s why Coach Beamer was not present. Coach Cav reviewed our returning players, top recruits, and the upcoming schedule. With an outstanding quarterback in Logan Thomas, a solid defense, and some young players stepping up, we are hopeful of another great football season.
May 8 was a beautiful day at the Williamsburg National Golf Club and 84 Hokie golfers showed up to enjoy the weather, the Hokie fellowship and compete for some outstanding prizes, all donated by our supporting merchants around the peninsula. The overall tourney winner of the captains choice event with a score of 53 was the team of Brian Grieff, Barry McKay, Ken Moyer, and L. Harden. 1st place winners in the three flights were: 1st flight – 56 – James Craft, B. Mowers, T. Mihalik, M. Mizuno; 2nd flight – 60 – Frank Seamster, Carolyn Seamster, Chris Seamster, Nick Re; 3rd flight – 61 – Jim Fike, Jimmy Fike, C. Hoyer, L. Presto. After a great picnic lunch, the winning teams selected their prizes and, in addition, a drawing resulted in every participant receiving a prize as well. As usual,the big winner from the event was the VT Athletic Fund. Thanks to everyone for supporting the Peninsula Hokie Club’s VTAF fund-raising effort.
