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.
