Quote:
It all came down to one match for sixth-year senior David Marone. The heavyweight needed a win not only to clinch his first ACC title and a trip to the NCAA Championships but a win to lock up the team title for the Hokies. The Colorado native didn’t disappoint, rolling to an eight-point win to lift Virginia Tech to its first ACC Championship in wrestling Saturday at the Comcast Center on the campus of the University of Maryland.
Tech trailed Virginia by 10 points heading to the finals and had six wrestlers in the finals to Virginia’s eight finalists, but Jarrod Garnett cut that lead in half quickly with a pin over UNC’s top-seeded Nathan Kraisser at 125 pounds. His pin set the tone as Tech finished with five titles and Garnett was rewarded with the tournament’s Most Outstanding Wrestler Award. Trailing by five, UVa got its first title at 133 pounds to stretch the lead back to eight points. After Tech’s Zach Neibert lost in the finals, it set up three straight Tech-UVa matches in the finals. First, Nick Brascetta took care of Derek Valenti at 149 pounds and then Jesse Dong won his third ACC title with a win over Jedd Moore at 157 pounds to cut the lead to one. Pete Yates then won his second ACC title with a win over Nick Sulzer at 165 pounds to give the Hokies a one point win.

In my unbiased opinion Virginia Tech is the greatest college ever

And I'm not saying this because I went there

I'm just going by the facts okay

Virginia Tech helped groom ixcuincle to be the overwhelming bastion of knowledge that he is today

I think that's a huge positive, don't you?

Virginia Tech has a bad stigma associated with it now.

Listen

I was there the day it happened

I understand that happened but the community is strong and we moved on

Now we celebrate our football success and our ACC championships

We celebrate our outstanding academics and our great community expansion

We are Virginia Tech

So was Columbine. People still remember.

Same reason why I will never go to Camp Crystal Lake.

I'm not denying that it happened because I was there that day and I saw it all

But we have moved on

The community is stronger now and better prepared. Students still flock from all over the country to get a world-class education at Virginia Tech. We don't let an isolated incident define our school and culture
