Greetings and welcome to the second issue of the newly revamped Inside Hokie Sports. The staff debuted this new-look magazine in August, and it now can be viewed online for free in this fun, interactive format. Readers should keep in mind that the new format includes the implementation of video and photo galleries, allows readers to bookmark articles, allows for the starting of a slideshow, and possesses a feature that enables readers to share easily through one’s social media outlets, along with more. Past issues can easily be viewed by clicking the links below and comments can be emailed using the form in the bottom right-hand corner. Please feel free to reach out with comments about the magazine or ideas for content.
The second issue serves as the men’s and women’s basketball preview issue, complete with analysis of both teams, as the two programs prepare for the upcoming 2016-17 season. It also includes academic spotlights on two young women with high aspirations for their futures, and features on women’s soccer superstar Murielle Tiernan and football standout Chuck Clark. In addition, there are season previews for the swimming and diving teams and the wrestling program – which finished fourth at last year’s NCAA Championships and hopes to make a run at a national title. We hope you enjoy the issue!
