Congrats to Debbie White (Col '90) for correctly guessing that the above image is a shot of the blue AstroTurf field hockey pitch at Copeley Road, behind University Hall.
After the most successful basketball season in decades, fourth-year guard Joe Harris (aka Joey Hoops) throws out the first pitch before a baseball game against Clemson. At press time, the UVA baseball team was ranked No. 1 in the nation.

The Virginia football team holds a summer scrimmage at Lambeth Field. Games were first held on the field in 1902 and the stadium was completed in 1913. It served as the home for Virginia football games until 1931, after which games were contested at Scott Stadium. The field was also the site of UVA track meets and baseball games.
Serena Bolliger (Col ‘07) and Jay Ward (Col ‘07) finished the Ironman 70.3 California in Oceanside on Saturday, March 30, 2013. Ward is already a full Ironman, having completed Ironman Texas in 2012. He will be doing Ironman Tahoe later this year.
The Ironman race is a 2.4-mile swim and a 112-mile bike ride followed by a marathon run (26.2 miles) and takes anywhere from 9 hours (for a pro) and 17 hours (the cutoff) to complete. The Ironman 70.3 is also known as the half Ironman distance, but it is certainly no small feat.

The 2010-2011 academic year is the inaugural year for the new business program.
Members of the UVA men’s soccer team savor their win over Akron on Dec. 13 to claim the NCAA championship, the program’s sixth national title. Goalkeeper Diego Restrepo (in blue jersey) was one of the season’s heroes, allowing just three goals over a 16-game stretch. He and midfielder Tony Tchani received first-team All-America honors, and head coach George Gelnovatch was named Men’s Coach of the Year by Soccer America.
UVA vs. DUKE soccer. UVA lost in double OT.
