The Eagles and new head coach Jason Lowe released their 2019 schedule on Wednesday, and it includes 11 tournament teams from a year ago as well as a three-game homestand to start the year.
While the Eagles jumped out to a one-run lead, the Hokies scored the final eight runs, completing the sweep.
The Eagles pitchers struggled all night long with command, issuing 10 walks as the BC lost to the Hokies, 10-2, Friday night despite a three-hit performance from Lexi DiEmmanuele.
McKenna Goss led the Eagles with 19 kills, and the Eagles managed to scrape out a 16-14 fifth set victory after blowing a 2-0 match lead.
The Eagles were led by Clare Naughton’s eight kills, but hit just .173 on the day, while the Hokies hit .302 and recorded nine less errors than BC.

Trailing by a touchdown at the break, the Eagles’ defense responded by only allowing 147 yards and seven points in the second half, setting the stage for BC’s first win over Virginia Tech in four years.
BC has lost eight of its last 10 meetings with Virginia Tech, including three straight. Now ranked No. 24 in the nation, the Eagles will need to beat their Coastal Division foe on the road to keep their ACC title hopes alive.
