When discussing Thomas Dale baseball, Virginia Commonwealth centerfielder Bill Cullen is one of the names bound to come up. The VCU junior had a dazzling career as a two-way player on the diamond for the Knights, departing with career rankings in the top five overall in doubles, triples, home runs, runs scored, stolen bases as a hitter and on the mound in wins and strikeouts.
Thomas Dale is a football school- both in the American and European sense. The Knights soccer program has been one of the most consistent and successful programs in the region since Mark Fowler took the program over in 1998.
Former Knights standout Dan Lauretano played in all 20 of the Hokies’ games last season, making 16 starts as a freshman. As a first year player he ranked second on the team in goals and third on the team in total points (goals plus assists).
