The RTD Sports team made it back home after covering the NCAA Championship in Minneapolis, but the pace hasn’t slowed down this week at The Times-Dispatch. From covering the UVA men’s basketball team when they returned to Charlottesville on Tuesday, to dedicating the rest of the week to creating a special section for this Sunday’s newspaper, we’re still playing hard at the RTD. Look for our UVA special section in this Sunday’s Times-Dispatch along with additional sections dedicated to the Monument Avenue 10k and Autism Awareness Month. And don’t forget – they’re racing under the lights at Richmond Raceway this weekend and we’ll have complete coverage in print and on Richmond.com.
