CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The University of Virginia men's swimming and diving team is ranked 23rd in the nation in this week's College Swimming Coaches Association of America Top 25 Poll. The Cavaliers are one of three teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference to be ranked in the poll, along with No. 11 Florida State and No. 18 North Carolina.
The Cavaliers have an overall record of 5-1 and a 2-1 mark in the ACC this season, with the lone loss coming at North Carolina last weekend. Virginia is led by sophomore Austin Ramirez (Brookfield, Wis.), who has the ACC's best times this season in both the 1,000 yard freestyle (9:18.00) and the 1,650 yard freestyle (15:30.88). Other Cavaliers who currently rank first in the ACC in their respective events are senior Jason Webb (Philadelphia, Pa.) in the 200 yard backstroke (1:46.27), and junior D.J. Gallagher (Manhasset, N.Y.) in the 200 yard breaststroke (2:02.98).
Virginia will be back in action this Saturday, Jan. 31, when it plays host to Villanova at 1:00 p.m. at the UVa Aquatic and Fitness Center.
