A year after claiming the Atlantic 10 championship in its inaugural season in the conference, the VCU men’s tennis team fell to George Washington University 4-1 in the finals at Boar’s Head Sports Club, in Charlottesville, Va. on Sunday, April 20.
VCU track and field athletes Brandon Ruffin and Kiara Porter received the men’s and women’s Atlantic 10 performer of the week awards, respectively.
Former VCU women’s basketball head coach Marlene Stollings resigned last Monday, April 7 to accept the same position with the University of Minnesota.
On April 3, the Atlantic 10 unanimously named VCU the favorite to win the conference’s golf championships, which will take place April 25-27 in Coral Springs, Fla.
Paul Woody of the Richmond Times-Dispatch recently wrote a column claiming VCU’s investment in head coach Shaka Smart has not seen a sufficient return to date.
