Hokies raise record number at second annual Leadoff Banquet

BLACKSBURG – The Hokie softball program held its second annual Leadoff Banquet at the German Club of Virginia Tech on last Sunday evening, with the proceeds from going towards wall graphics for the team’s new indoor batting facility.

The evening saw the program bring in more than $7,500, exceeding the total raised at last year’s inaugural banquet. Attendees were treated to a full program, hosted by Virginia Tech legends Mike Burnop and Bill Roth, that featured a silent auction, a trivia contest and a special preview of the 2018 season from the players and coaching staff.

“This year’s Leadoff Banquet was once again a huge success,” said head coach Scot Thomas. “Whitney Davis Showalter put together another first-class event. We’re appreciative of the folks at the German Club for having us and we’re so thankful to our fans that came out to support our student-athletes and the new indoor facility.”

The Hokies open the 2018 season at the Sand Dollar Classic in Gulf Shores, Alabama from Feb. 9-11 where they will face Florida A&M, Lamar, Central Arkansas, Ole Miss and Alabama.
