Vipers vs Trashers At this point the Vipers just
playing for pride against Danbury whose
headed to the playoffs.

Trashers would get on the board
first, Donny Grover would skate past

the entire Roanoke Team and then go
5-hole for the goal and it's 1 to
nothing Danbury.

The lead would grow for the
Visitors as former Viper David
Beauregard would score 2 straight goals
to up the lead to 3 to nothing.

since its inception in 1920. After
winning the last 5 state titles at

challenge will include adjusting to the
administrative side of coaching, and
hitting the road for recruiting, which
he says shouldn't be a problem at Tech.

KEVIN DRESSER/NEW VIRGINIA TECH
WRESTLING COACH:

One of the issues that could rear its

head early on, is the fact that at
least four current Hokies have declared
their intentions to join outgoing coach
Tom Brands at Iowa, if they receive
scholarship releases.

DRESSER:

TRAVIS WELLS: Dresser will head to a
tournament in Las Vegas this weekend to
begin interviewing potential assistant
coaching candidates, and could have an
announcement sometime next week in
regards to his staff. In Blacksburg,
