Women’s Sports Accomplishments

Tim Thomas

There have been a couple of big noteworthy items for Virginia Tech women’s sports. First for women’s soccer.

Virginia Tech women’s soccer starting goalkeeper Mandy McGlynn has been called up to the United States U-20 team. McGlynn was very good in her freshman season starting 16 of 19 games with 6 shutouts and 58 saves while returning for her sophomore as one of America’s top young goalkeepers. McGlynn will be a big part of Virginia Tech’s hopes next year for a resurgence after what many saw as a rebuilding year for Chugger Adair’s program.

Meanwhile in softball, two Hokies received All-ACC recognition with OF/DP Breanna Davenport being named to the All-ACC Second Team and Carrie Eberle being named to the All-ACC Freshman Team.

Davenport had a strong junior season with a .333 batting average, 8 home runs, 29 RBIs, and 4 stolen bases in 52 games while hitting an impressive .408 in ACC play. Meanwhile, Eberle was the Hokies’ ace as a true freshman with 20 starts in 38 games, 10 complete games, a 3.42 ERA, and a 9-11 record. Eberle definitely has a bright future with the Hokies, and her and Davenport will play big roles on a Virginia Tech team that should be much better next season after injuries and youth made this a rebuilding season.

Congrats to Mandy McGlynn on being called up to the US U-20 team along with congrats to Breanna Davenport and Carrie Eberle on receiving All-ACC recognition.
