The series finale scheduled for Sunday has been canceled due to the threat of inclement weather.

Virginia (2-0) will return to the field Tuesday, as the Cavaliers host William & Mary at 3 pm.

The Hokies beat Kent State 8-1 in their first game of the day, followed by a 9-0 rain-shortened 8 inning win against the host Seahawks.
