McGarity verbally commits to Virginia Tech, then pitches gem

Richmond, VA (WWBT)- Mills Godwin junior pitcher Aaron McGarity made a big decision on Friday.  The hurler verbally committed to continue his baseball career at Virginia Tech, just hours before the Eagles' game against Maggie Walker Governor's School. 

Friday night, McGarity took the ball for the start against the Dragons and fired a gem.  The junior tossed a complete game, giving up just two runs, one walk and striking out nine.  Mills Godwin rolled to a 4-2 win over Maggie Walker, improving to 5-2 on the year and winning its third straight game.

Glen Allen, in the midst of its first varsity season for all sports, hosted Varina on the baseball field on Friday as well.  The Blue Devils caught fire in the third, posting five runs and that would prove to be the difference.  Glen Allen would rally for three runs in the latter half of the game, but Varina earned the 5-3 win.

The same two teams met on the softball field, with Glen Allen rolling to a 12-2 win over Varina.  The Jaguars used an eight run third inning to pull away and slam the door on the Blue Devils.
