NOVA's League of Legends team last two games have been won by forfeit, while the last full match victory was over East Carolina. The Overwatch squads first season of competition came to a close in a 3-1 loss to in-state foe Christopher Newport two weeks ago.
A year ago, the Nighthawks finished the year 0-8, but were led by their two All-Americans Chyann Hooker and Chantal Gruber. The duo combined for 26 hits, 11 extra base hits and 15 RBIs, along with a home run.
This season, NOVA welcomes back three from the 2018 squad – Berith Austin, Rheana Gray and Liz Willett. Austin and Gray toe the rubber for the Nighthawks, while Willett is expected to patrol the middle infield.
