RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) -- The Richmond Flying Squirrels honored the University of Richmond women's basketball staff members, Ginny Doyle and Natalie Lewis, who were killed in Friday's tragic hot-air balloon accident in Caroline County.

There was a moment and the women's initials were painted behind home plate at the Diamond.

A massive search ended Sunday after state police recovered the body of the third victim in the hot-air balloon accident.

When the balloon was attempting to land late Friday, the aircraft hit the power line and burst into flames, according to witnesses.
