GREENSBORO, N.C.—The Virginia men’s swimming and diving team won the 800 free relay as action concluded on the first night of the Atlantic Coast Conference Championships Wednesday (Feb. 27) at the Greensboro Aquatic Center in Greensboro, N.C.
The Cavaliers sit in second place with 68 points, two behind leader Florida State (70). Virginia Tech and North Carolina are tied for third with 66 points, followed by Georgia Tech (54), Boston College (48), NC State (30) and Duke (24).
The 800 free relay of freshman Nick Alexiou, senior Tom Barrett, sophomore David Ingraham and junior Parker Camp won in a time of 6:20.26, following a disqualification by NC State. That mark for the Cavaliers is an NCAA 'A' cut time.
