2 2023 INVESTMENT GUIDE Dear Hokie Nation, Our fall sports seasons are already in full swing, and we could not be more encouraged from all of the support you have shown since we kicked off the 2022-2023 academic year. Our nearly 600 student-athletes are incredibly appreciative to have the best fan base in the country behind them with everything they do, whether that be in competition, in the classroom, or in the community. We are currently in the heat of the ACC slate for football, which is once again proving itself to be an incredibly talented conference. We are encouraged by the steps Coach Pry and his staff have taken to develop this group of student-athletes. They are the right group of leaders we want to have moving this program forward into the future of college football. As they move throughout the progression of leading our program back to national prominence, they are lucky to have the most passionate fan base behind them. Our Olympic sports continue to make strides as well. Coach Chugger Adair and his staff have excelled with a young group of student-athletes in the already challenging gauntlet of ACCWomen’s Soccer. Mike Brizendine and Virginia Tech Men’s Soccer have also made strides with one of the most difficult schedules in the country, and we are looking forward to seeing them make a push for a seventh straight trip to the NCAA Tournament. In Cassell, volleyball has seen exceptional improvement as well under the tutelage of Marci Byers. Finally, our student-athletes on the cross country trail are equipped to compete thanks to the incredible Dave Cianelli. We encourage you to come cheer on these teams when you make a trip to Blacksburg. As we gear up to the highly anticipated winter sports seasons, we want to remind our fans that Hokies are truly stronger together. We are not asking one person to do everything, but everyone to do something. In this 2023 Investment Guide, you will find a multitude of ways to help us on our mission to elevate Virginia Tech from a challenger to a champion brand in collegiate athletics. Hokie fans can find out more about the ways in which they can give, potential benefits, seating and parking information, and more in this edition of Inside Hokie Sports magazine. You all play a crucial role in the student-athlete experience, and this guide leads you to the best ways to make an impact. With your help, we’re moving in the right direction, and we need to continue to stay on this path. At the conclusion of the last Drive Year, Hokie Club membership ascended to over 29,000 for the first time in history. Our supporters also raised over $20 million in current-use annual fund philanthropic dollars, fulfilling the scholarship bill for our student-athletes in Blacksburg, while also supplementing programs’ operational budgets. It is imperative that Hokie Nation steps up to do that once again to ensure the best possible experience for nearly 600 studentathletes. We are building the most well rounded leaders in Blacksburg, not only in competition, but in the classroom and the community. It will be challenging, but our fans have risen to the occasion before, and we know they can continue to do so. Thank you for your dedication to our student-athletes. You are helping all of Virginia Tech Athletics Reach for Excellence! Go Hokies! Whit Babcock Director of Athletics A WORD FROM WHIT DOES MY GIFT MAKE AN IMPACT? Yes! As we continue to “Reach for Excellence,” your contribution, no matter the size, is the single best way to help us continue our positive momentum and impact the lives of Hokie student-athletes. HOW DO I BECOME A MEMBER? Any gift to any fund for a Virginia Tech Athletics program makes you a Hokie Club member! However, to qualify for annual benefits, a priority ranking, and a membership level, a minimum gift of $25 to the Hokie Scholarship Fund is required. WHAT ISTHE ? The principal mission of the Hokie Club is to provide financial support for scholarships for Virginia Tech student-athletes. Other fundraising initiatives such as capital improvement, endowments and programmatic needs also fall under the responsibilities of the Hokie Club. These initiatives, along with scholarship fundraising, are a vital part of moving Virginia Tech athletes forward from a Challenger Brand to a Champion Brand. WHAT DOES MY INVESTMENT SUPPORT? Your philanthropic contributions to Virginia Tech Athletics go directly into enhancing the student-athlete experience in Blacksburg in areas such as scholarship and educational support, leadership development, student-athlete wellness, and other programmatic needs for our 22 varsity sports. Your investment in Virginia Tech Athletics is helping make lifelong memories for nearly 600 Hokie student-athletes. ARE MY DONATIONS TAX DEDUCTIBLE? We always encourage you to consult your tax advisor when making philanthropic gifts, however, as a general rule of thumb: Non-seat related contributions including gifts to capital projects, endowments, and Hokie Scholarship Fund gifts that exceed your minimum seat requirement are considered a charitable donation to a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization. Again, please consult a tax advisor on the deductibility of your gift(s) .


4 2023 INVESTMENT GUIDE With the goal of simplifying the experience for Hokie Club donors and season ticket holders, the Hokie Club and Virginia Tech Athletics have announced the shift of the Hokie Scholarship Fund deadline from its recent date of March 31 to March 1, 2023. In an effort to streamline communication for all Hokies, March 1 will also be the final day to renew both football and men’s/women’s basketball season tickets for the 2023-24 athletics year. To incentivize early giving, Hokie Club donors who renew or exceed their Hokie Scholarship Fund giving amount from the previous drive year by December 21, 2022, will receive ten additional priority points. Five additional points will be awarded as well for all accounts who utilize one of the many payment plan options by December 21. Here are some additional details regarding the new deadline: • Season tickets for both the 2023 Virginia Tech football season and the 2023-2024 basketball seasons must be renewed HOKIE SCHOLARSHIP FUND ANNUAL GIVING DEADLINE SHIFTING TO MARCH 1Early giving deadline of December 21 created by March 1, 2023. Renewals for these sports will begin in the fall of 2022 and will include a simultaneous renewal for Football, Men’s Basketball, and Women’s Basketball. • All Hokie Scholarship Fund gifts for per-seat giving requirements, membership levels and priority ranking must be made by March 1, 2023. • For those currently on payment plans, additional communication will be provided to ensure the new deadline provides an opportunity to adjust your plan. • Recurring giving and payment plans for HokieClubmembership are a great way to spread out Hokie Club membership payments. • The annual seat improvement process and full reseating process that occurs every three years, for Lane Stadium and Cassell Coliseum will now take place simultaneously moving forward, beginning in the spring of 2023. Drive Year 2023 is NOT a full reseating year. Drive Year 2024 will be the next full reseating year.

Hokie Club members were able to raise over $20 million in annual fund dollars prior to the close of Drive Year 2022. Moving forward to 2023, this fundraising standard needs to be maintained for 256 in-state and 390 out-of-state student-athletes. 5

McCarter has certainly accomplished a great deal in her time in Blacksburg. She’s been a vital part of three NCAA Tournament teams at Virginia Tech while currently pursuing a fourth trip, grown exponentially as a leader, and is prepared for a life in the daunting field of geotechnical engineering. When she looks back on her years in Blacksburg, McCarter does not hesitate to reflect positively on the entire experience. “I came here to play soccer and get a first class education, and I’ve been given that opportunity and I’m so grateful for it,” McCarter said. “It’s every little girl’s dream to play at this level. I’m happy that I’m here, and that Tech chose me, and I chose Tech.” Scholarship Impact: Emmalee McCarter utilized every moment of the student-athlete experience afforded to her while in Blacksburg. Even as her final year playing at Thompson Field comes to a close, the opportunity to pursue an education at Virginia Tech will propel her for a successful career, long after she hangs her cleats up for the final time. “I just want to be known for showing up and working hard,” said McCarter, who graduated with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering earlier this year. “I kind of fit more into leading by example, I’m not as vocal on the field as others may be. But, I try to show people that if they come into work every day, put everything they have into practice, it pays off.” McCarter’s impact on Virginia Tech Women’s Soccer as a fifth year senior is unmatched, even with her modest claim that she does not serve as a vocal leader. After unforeseen circumstances sidelined the team’s starting goalkeepers before a home match vs. Charlotte, McCarter volunteered to step into the net to serve in a position that she had not played since her days in youth soccer. Thanks to a heroic performance in net combined with a solid defensive showing by the Hokies’ backline, McCarter notched a clean sheet in Tech’s 3-0 victory against the 49ers. The adoration from her teammates led to a cinematic ending of carrying the native of Charleston, S.C. off of the field on their shoulders. “I give all the credit to everyone in front of me. I literally couldn’t have done it without them,” McCarter said, who made five saves in the victory. “It was a great experience and definitely a core memory I will never forget.” What is arguably more impressive than McCarter’s clean sheet as a reserve goalkeeper is her ability to balance the strenuous demands of her sport and her education. She is currently enrolled in a graduate program for geotechnical engineering, and she wishes to use her master’s degree as a consultant on infrastructural building projects by analyzing the soil they are constructed on. “I definitely say there’s been some long days that turned into very long nights,” McCarter remembered, who recently served as an Engineering Technician at the geotechnical engineering firm S&ME this summer. “But I always got my work done. There are some sacrifices. I mean, whether you’re dealing with soccer or school, you have to find time elsewhere to get the things you want accomplished.” Emmalee McCarter HOKIES senior capitalizes on the total student-athlete journey 6 2023 INVESTMENT GUIDE 7 646 Student-Athletes (2022-2023) 678 All-Americans (All-Time) 19 OF 22 TEAMS Maintained a GPA of 3.0 or Higher in Spring 2022 228 STUDENT-ATHLETES Made Dean’s List in Spring 2022 Thanks to the efforts of Hokie Nation, our studentathletes have been able to Reach for Excellence behind the growth of the Hokie Scholarship Fund and donors contributing current-use annual dollars.

For example, a gift made after March 31, 2022 and prior to March 1, 2023 would count in Drive Year 2023, with benefits being received beginning in the fall 2023 athletics season. Drive Year numbers include only dollars received in that Drive Year and exclude commitments and pledges. **Only Hokie Club donors who make a minimum contribution of $25 to the Hokie Scholarship Fund count in these totals and receive a ranking. When you see your rank out of 22,036 members, you are only seeing your ranking of the 22,036 Hokie Scholarship Fund donors, not the higher total of 29,056 overall Hokie Club members.

Box 10307 Blacksburg, VA 24062-0307 MATCHING GIFTS Increase your level of giving by matching your gift with charitable contributions from your employer. Please note, with recent tax law changes, your company’s matching gift program may no longer match gifts that allow for ticket benefits. Please consult with your employer for more information. GIFTS OF SECURITIES Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, etc. are accepted and appreciated by the Virginia Tech Athletic Fund. These gifts typically involve publicly traded shares, such as those traded on the major exchanges and over the counter, as well as most mutual funds. Gifts of privately held stock, though more complex, are also possible. Supporting Virginia Tech with a gift of securities can provide significant tax benefits for the donor—bypassing capital gains taxes and providing a valuable income tax deduction—both of which effectively reduce the cost of making a gift. Contact the Virginia Tech Foundation at 540-231-2861 for more information. PLANNED OR REAL ESTATE GIFTS Gifts in the form of life income gifts (Charitable Remainder Trust, Charitable Gift Annuity), charitable lead trusts, and/or bequests are common ways to state your intentions of leaving a future gift to Virginia Tech Athletics while receiving substantial income, estate, and gift tax benefits now.

Should a donor decrease their Hokie Scholarship Fund giving-level prior to any March 1 deadline that is not a full reseat, they will need to reselect parking for the upcoming season. There will be an opportunity to relocate parking locations during nonreseating years if a donor desires, but it is not mandatory. The next full reseating will take place before the 2024 season, and donors will need to select a membership level they are prepared to maintain for the next three giving cycles.

As the World Athletics Championships came to the US for the first time ever, two VT alumni represented their countries at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon. Neil Gourley ’18 competed for Great Britain in the 1500m after taking the silver medal in the event at the UK Athletics Championships. Gourley advanced past the first round of the event in Oregon with characteristically witty running, clinching a spot in the semifinals with a strong move on the inside rail. Gourley finished in sixth in his semifinal heat, narrowly missing out on a second consecutive 1500m final at a world championship, following his appearance in the finals at the 2022 World Indoor Championships. Joining Gourley in Eugene was Marek Barta–’18, who qualified for the world stage by winning his sixth national title in the discus throw for Czechia. Ranked No. 7 all-time among Czech athletes in the event with his personal best of 64.40 meters from 2021, the native of Havirov delivered a best of 62.90 meters in his qualification round to finish 13th overall at his world championships debut. Several other Pro Hokies have been excelling both in the US and abroad, as Vincent Ciattei–’18 won his first national title this spring. With a time of 4:03, Ciattei won the USATF Men’s 1 Mile Road Championships in Des Moines, Iowa. Ciattei rode the momentum of his American title to the USATF Outdoor Championships, where the distance runner placed 10th in the 1500m. Also, at the USATF Outdoor Championships, Pro Hokies Hanna Green–’17, Jordan –’16, Fitsum Seyoum–’21, and Deakin Volz –’19 competed among the nation’s top talent in their events. Green reached the semifinals of the 800m where she finished sixth in her heat, Seyoumposted a time of 8:35.84 in a stacked 3000msteeplechase field, while Roach and Volz battled in the discus and pole vault, respectively. Much more remains to come from VT Tech track & field’s Pro Hokies this summer, as professional races and competitions provide opportunities for the Hokie alumni to show their strength. SWIMMING & DIVING Congratulations to: Sara Smith–’09 for being selected to the VT Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2022; and Klaudia Nazieblo–’18 on her promotion to Assistant Coach of VT Swimming and Diving after joining the staff as a volunteer assistant in 2021. The Monogram Club recently caught up with Lucas Bureau–’16 for a Q&A session. Hailing from Latrobe, Pennsylvania, Lucas swam for VT from 2012 to 2016 and graduated with a degree in History with a minor in Political Science in 2016. During his four years on the swimming and diving team he contributed to Virginia Tech’s first and only ACC Men’s Team title in 2014, was a four-time ACCChampionship medalist, was an All-American, broke several school records on relays, and competed in the 2016 and 2021 Olympic trials. Lucas is currently a full-time coach at H2Okie Aquatics, the club swim team in Blacksburg. While finishing up his undergraduate degree, Lucas worked part-time for H2Okie Aquatics which turned into a full-time position after graduation. Q: Describe your experiences as a student athlete. LB: As a student athlete at VT, you are surrounded by so many other amazing athletes and people who just do things the right way. For me, learning how to be a great student athlete was easy because that’s all I wanted. I always did the best I could because I saw being a student athlete as a full-time job, and I wanted to act like a true professional and have a great impact on my team and other people in the athletic department. Showing up early, sitting in the front row, being the hardest worker in the room, and never complaining or backing down from a challenge. Being a great student athlete was my top priority and if there was something distracting me from that, I would just cut that out of my life. I always hated the word sacrifice because to me if you ever said “I sacrifice so much to be a student athlete” then you shouldn’t be one. When you are truly doing what you love to do, you aren’t Sacrificing anything because that’s the only life that you know. That mentality and experience has helped me so much for the life I live today. Q: Who made the biggest impact on you as a student athlete? LB: Ned Skinner (VT head coach from ’98 to ’18) was so great to me. He was hard on me, pushed me to be better, and held me to the standard I wanted to be held at. He knew I wanted to great and had a perfect blend of pushing me but also being like a father to me and caring about me as a person first and a student athlete second. He always had my back, and I always had his and I think that’s why we still have a great relationship to this day. My teammates were also incredible. Especially the year we won ACC’s. Our culture was so healthy and motivating to be great and inspired all of us to reach our full potential. Q: How did your experience at VT prepare you for coaching? LB: Being around the sport of swimming and being involved with VT athletics has helped me tremendously with what I do today. My job is to push and inspire athletes to reach their full potential no matter their skill level. After doing that for 4 years at VT I know what I accomplished as an athlete has helped me tremendously as a coach. Q: Why do you coach? LB: To me, coaching is so rewarding. To see athletes experience the highest of highs and the lowest of lows and still refuse to give up or settle is what it’s all about to me. I want my athletes to be able to handle success and failure. My job is to create an environment of fun, success, and growth. And I love the challenge of trying to make that happen every day. Q: What’s next? LB: As an athlete, I’m training with the goal of making my 3rd Olympic trials that will happen in the summer of 2024. As a coach my goal stays the same. To push my athletes to reach their full potential as an athlete and for them to grow as a person in the upcoming season. Swim & Dive alumni – reach out to Brian Lubin at brian_lubin@ BASEBALL Joe Mantiply–’13 came to Blacksburg in 2009 after being drafted in the 48th round of the MLB Draft by the New York Mets as a leftContinued on page 28

28 2023 INVESTMENT GUIDE handed pitcher out of Tunstall High School in Dry Fork, VA. Joe was drafted again after his junior season with the Hokies by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 28th round of the MLB Draft and once again opted to forgo signing a professional contract and returned to Blacksburg. After his senior season in 2013, he was drafted once again this time by the Detroit Tigers in the 27th round and signed a contract to begin his professional career. Joe made his big-league debut with the Tigers in 2016 and was named to his first major-league all-star team this season as a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks! Chip Runyon–’02 (chip. was able to catch up with Joe recently to talk about his career and path to the major leagues as well as his time at VT; the Q&A follows! Q: You were a successful high school player being drafted in the 48th round by the New York Mets and signing with VT. How was it possible for a guy from Dry Fork, VA to get the exposure and notoriety to be put in a position to play baseball in the ACC and be drafted by a major league team? JM: I have to give a lot of credit to my parents for sacrificing a lot of time and money to take me all over the east coast playing in big tournaments like East Cobb and Jupiter. I think that’s where I got on professional teams’ radars. I think the coaches at Virginia Tech saw me pitch at the Commonwealth Games in Roanoke. Q: What made you ultimately choose to sign with the Hokies over other schools as well as a contract offer from the New York Mets? JM: I fell in love with Blacksburg the first time I ever visited there. I had been there a few times as a kid and grew up rooting for them. I loved the small town feel and it reminded me a lot of home. I also was all in on Coach Hughes, his staff, and what they had planned for the program. I was not ready for pro ball mentally or physically so going to school was definitely the right decision for me. Q: You came in and made an immediate impact in Blacksburg appearing in 22 games as a freshman for the Hokies…did that surprise you and what as the adjustment like from high school to major college baseball? JM: Yeah I would say I was a little surprised. It’s really tough to come into a division-one program and play as a true freshman. Everyone on the team was the best player in their area and the learning curve is definitely a big jump. I tried to embrace the challenge and earn my playing time. Q: You obviously have had a very successful professional career making it through the minor leagues in 3 years with the Tigers before returning to the big leagues with the NY Yankees and now as an all-star with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Professional baseball can be a grind as players try to move up through the ranks, what do you contribute to your success to be able to make it to the major leagues? JM: I just strive to get better every single day. I feel like I’ve always had that mentality going back to high school. Everyday there needs to be a plan and purpose for your work. I have always had a lot of confidence in myself and my abilities which I think stems from my preparation. There are very few things you can control in the game of baseball. Preparation and work ethic are necessities! Q: The VT Baseball program had a historic season last year, and the future looks bright in Blacksburg. Do you follow the program closely? What do you think the biggest change is from your time in Blacksburg and what do you think the future holds for the program? JM: I follow them the best I can! The social media staff does a great job of posting scores and updates. It was awesome to see the team have such a great year. I like what coach Szefc and his staff have going with recruiting and the facilities. The facilities are definitely the biggest change. The upgrades to the stadium definitely make it one of the nicest stadiums in the country. To me the sky is the limit for that program!
