BLACKSBURG, Va. (WJHL) – Former Tennessee High standout Gavin Cross picked up some more hardware with the Virginia Tech right fielder being named to the All-ACC and All-ACC Freshman teams Monday afternoon.

Cross finished the regular season with 70 hits, 11 homeruns, 13 doubles and five triples, which all led the Hokies. His hit total was also tops in the conference. The former Viking also finished two RBI’s short (35) of the team lead.
