Strong performances on the field, on the court, on the mat and in the classroom and community headlined a banner fall for the varsity programs within the Virginia Tech Athletics Department.
In the community, Virginia Tech’s student-athletes completed 2,092 hours worth of community service in a five-month span starting at the beginning of August. Tech’s football program led the way by participating in four projects this fall, including two at the Belk Bowl.
Community-service projects throughout the fall ranged from reading to children at local elementary schools to working fall festivals at local schools to working at the Montgomery Country Christmas Store to volunteering as a marshal at the Color Me Rad run that raises money for Special Olympics. The Tech women’s soccer team helped with the flood relief efforts in West Virginia, the softball and men’s basketball teams made visits to Carilion Children’s, a pediatric care services unit of Carilion Clinic, and numerous student-athletes worked at United Way events throughout the community and with Micah’s Backpacks.
