Each of them became the highest ever draft picks in the history of Hokies women’s soccer and women’s basketball, respectively. Gray was called on by the NWSL’s North Carolina Courage as the third overall pick in December 2021, becoming the third ever draft pick in program history. The Las Vegas Aces selected Sheppard 23rd overall in the WNBA Draft, leaving Blacksburg as the sixth ever Hokie to be drafted to a WNBA squad. Both Sheppard and Gray are currently on the active roster for both of their teams.
