CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA -- The University of Virginia men's swimming team set season best times in six of eleven events but it was not enough as #24 Ohio State defeated the Cavaliers 140.5 to 100.5 at the Virginia Aquatic and Fitness Center. Virginia's Jason Webb (Philadelphia, PA), a two-time all-American, swam the fastest time in a collegiate meet in the 200-yard backstroke. Webb settled for a first place tie in the event with Ohio State's Marko Strahija with both swimmers finishing in 1:45.85.
Freshman Austin Ramirez (Brookfield, WI) set a team best time in the 1,000-yard freestyle, finishing in 9:22.72. Ramirez also put in a strong second-place performance in the 500-yard freestyle as he set a season best time of 4:33.92.

Gallagher (Manhasset, NY) in the 200-yard breaststroke. Woodworth has won the 50 free in the new Aquatics and Fitness Center in each of the Cavaliers' three home meets this season. He also swam his best time of the season in the 100-yard freestyle, finishing second in 46.87.The loss drops the Cavaliers' record to 3-2 on the season.
