ACC Players of the Year Andrew Colley and Nick Gwiazdowski are among the honorees
Tennessee scores its seven runs in the first four innings to eliminate the ACC champion Wolfpack and win the NCAA Knoxville Regional.
The senior outfielder had her third two-homer game in Wolfpack softball's last four games, driving a three-run shot over the left centerfield wall in the bottom of the eighth to earn a doubleheader split against the No. 24 Tar Heels. The teams meet Sunday at 1 p.m. in the series finale. Admission is free for all spectators.
Sophomore pitcher Emily Weiman picked up a pair of wins, including the first no-hitter of her career, in a doubleheader sweep of the 49ers at the Dail Softball Stadium. The Wolfpack will face Maryland in a three-game series this weekend, beginning with a doubleheader on Saturday.
