Va. Tech golfers OK after shooting

April 16, 2007

Just exchanged e-mails with Virginia Tech men's coach Jay Hartwick, who said all his players are accounted for in the wake of today's tragic shootings on the school's campus in Blacksburg, Va. He noted that while the incident occurred near the school's golf course, he and assistant coach Brian Sharp were holding academic meetings with the players from 8 to 9:45 a.m., "so they all had been with us."

Over the weekend, the Hokies finished 11th at the Courtyard by Marriott Intercollegiate in Holly Springs, N.C., posting a 21-over 885, 33 strokes back of the winner, Charlotte. The team's next start is this weekend's ACC Championship.
