HOKIES WIN SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT

A two-run home run in the second inning by Kelsy Rokey was all the offense ACC Tournament MVP Angela Tincher would need as 15th-ranked and top seeded Virginia Tech defeated No. 17 Georgia Tech 2-0 to claim the 2007 ACC Softball Championship - the first softball title for the Hokies since they joined the league three years ago. With the win, Virginia Tech moves to 48-14 on the season, while the loss runs Georgia Tech's record to 53-14.

"Given some of the circumstances of the past month if some people find some comfort in our winning it, I hope they do because we're excited about it and we're excited to wear the orange and maroon. We can't wait to get back to Blacksburg and take the trophy into town," said Virginia Tech head coach Scott Thomas.

"Obviously, we let them win," said Georgia Tech head coach Sharon Perkins.
