    Blacksburg Girls look strong at Knights Crossing

    The 11th annual Knights Crossing cross country meet was held Saturday at Green Hill Park in Salem. The Blacksburg Girls looked strong as always in the event held by Cave Spring High School. The 4th ranked team in the nation took the Girls Team Title in the Girls Red 5k. E.C. Glass sophomore Libby Davidson took first place overall in the event. She set the course record, running a 17:36.7 minute mile.

She set the course record, running a 17:36.7 minute mile.

   It's still early in the 2013 season, but Virginia Tech's football program looks like it's back on the title rails after a one year track change to 'middle of the road-ville.'  A seven-point road win over previously undefeated Georgia Tech has the Hokies atop the Coastal Division of the ACC, ...and for the time being at least--on schedule for a return trip to Charlotte. Senior Andrew Miller was careful not to categorize the Hokies as "back", saying this is a new team with a new offense.

   A three-game homestand is next for Virginia Tech including this Saturday's date with the Tar Heels.  North Carolina's season to date has been a huge disappointment--after they sift through the wreckage of a 55-31 loss to East Carolina. At 1-3..the 'Heels look like a shell of the team that dismantled Virginia Tech in Chapel Hill a year ago. Coach Beamer says he understands how teams can be up and down from week to week and reminded everyone you need to only look back to last year's 48-34 North Carolina win. That result still serves as fair warning. Freshman cornerback Brandon Facyson explained that you can't get into the habit of looking at teams that have already lost to someone you have defeated--and thinking it will be an easy victory. He says thinking that way will get you beat.@
