It's a busy weekend of athletics at the University of Virginia, as several squads hold key contests, many that will have an impact on postseason play.

Brian O'Connor's Cavalier Baseball Team takes the field against Georgia Tech for a three game series this weekend. Virginia will look for its fifth straight ACC series victory, and hold off the Yellow Jackets, who sit just one game behind the Cavaliers in the Coastal Division standings. Virginia enters with a 30-7 record, 10-5 in the conference. First pitch for tomorrow's game is set for 7:00.

Meanwhile, the Cavalier Men's Lacrosse Team will make the trip down to Durham to meet Duke. Virginia enters with a 10-1 record, and on a ten game winning streak, while the Blue Devils are 9-2. Both teams boast 2-0 records in the ACC, and the winner will clinch the top seed in the ACC Tournament.

The Cavalier Men's Tennis Team wraps up its regular season this weekend with two crucial conference matches. Virginia welcomes Duke to Snyder Tennis Center on Friday, before tangling with North Carolina on Sunday. A win will give the Cavaliers their fourth consecutive ACC regular season championship.

Al Groh's Cavalier Football Team will hit the field on Saturday in the annual spring game. Virginia has held 14 practice sessions for spring workouts, and will conclude the spring program with the intra-squad scrimmage. Quarterback Jameel Sewell and linebacker Clint Sintim will both sit out the game, as they continue to recover from injuries. Kickoff for Saturday's game is set for 2:00.
