Blades of Grace

Come catch the WVU Figure Skating team swirling and twirling during Mountaineer hockey intermissions at Morgantown Municipal Ice Arena. The skating team, projected to have between eight and 12 skaters this year, begins its competitive season in January.  The WVU team is part of the Eastern Section of U.S. Collegiate Figure Skating, and it can proudly boast that it's trounced Harvard. WVU figure skaters are also working on starting a synchro team this year. For more info, search for them on Twitter or Facebook.

The Great Defender

Senior guard Jevon Carter leads eight returning lettermen from last year’s 28-8 team.

Carter was the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year, All-Big 12 Second Team, All-Big 12 Defensive Team, the NABC Defensive Player of the Year and the Lefty Driesell Defensive Player of the Year.

Letters Only

More than 100 student-athletes from 18 varsity sports were honored at the first letterman’s jacket ceremony in August. The idea for the inaugural ceremony came from Athletic Director Shane Lyons who wanted to recognize student-athletes who earned their first varsity letter at WVU.

Rivalry Renewed

When parents move feuding kids to separate sides of a shared bedroom, it's supposed to be more peaceful. But it's also much less fun. The WVU-Virginia Tech rivalry is like that. Alumni and fans could not wait until the end of the 12-year football matchup drought. See the full photo story at https://wvumag.wvu.edu/features/sibling-rivalry.
