Statement from ACC Commissioner John D. Swofford on the Tragedy at Virginia Tech
Around The
April 17, 2007

Every student-athlete, coach and administrator that is a part of the Atlantic Coast Conference is filled with heart-felt sympathy for, not only those students, faculty members and families directly affected by this tragedy, but for the entire Virginia Tech community as well.

Our Conference is family and we will assist in any way possible in helping this very special and close-knit part of our family move forward from Monday's senseless and inexplicable act.

In solitude and solidarity, we will remember those who have lost their lives and honor our friends, colleagues and fellow students at Virginia Tech with a moment of silence at each of our ACC Spring Championships.

Today, we are all Hokies.
