The No. 11 Virginia women's team defeated No. 25 Virginia Tech, 189.5-163.5, while the No. 21 Cavalier men fell, 218-133, to the Hokies.
"We had a challenging day for the second day at Virginia Tech," head coach Todd DeSorbo said. "The women came out with a win. We had some mishaps to end the meet yesterday with a disqualification on the men's 400 medley relay, that we won, and likewise this morning on the women's 200 medley relay, that we won as well and disqualified. That put us in a little bit of a hole, from a points perspective, so we had to dig out of that on both sides. Those are things we need to learn
