The rise of the Virginia Tech women’s golf team has been both steady and spectacular. Growth in all phases of the program has been noticeable and foundational. This is a program built for the long run, and not just on the golf course. In just its third year of existence, the team reached a major milestone in 2018, as it earned an at-large bid into the NCAA regionals, then made it two-in-a-row by earning a berth in the NCAA Norman Regional in 2019. The consecutive trips to NCAA regional competition proved that this program will compete on the highest level, while maintaining the foundation and values that has led to the growth. Off the course, the rise has been just as remarkable. Built on a foundation of academics and community service, the Hokies were awarded a 2018 and 2019 Public Recognition Award from the NCAA. Women’s golf had a perfect 1.000 in the multi-year Academic Percentage Rate. Seven of the program’s nine student-athletes made the 2018-19 ACC Academic Honor Roll. In just four years of competition, all eligible seniors have earned their degrees.
YOUR support on Drive for 25 Day will go toward our goal of making improvements to the team facility at the Pete Dye River Course as well as team travel and recruiting top notch student-athletes to Virginia Tech.
"As I enter my final year as a Hokie, I cannot possibly explain how thankful I am to have been a part of this amazing program and community. Since I first stepped on campus, I have had so many incredible experiences and opportunities, and I have seen myself grow as a student, athlete, and person as a result. Throughout my time here, I have been continually amazed by how supportive our donors are, both financially and through their interest in each athletes' success, not only in sports, but in life. I wish so badly that my time here at Virginia Tech didn't have to come to an end, but I will always be grateful for the support and encouragement of our donors that allowed me to have the best college experience I could've asked for..”
