CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.- The No. 16 Virginia women’s swimming and diving team defeated Louisville and Princeton on Saturday (Nov. 11) at the Aquatic and Fitness Center in Charlottesville, Va., while the No. 23 men’s team split the meet.
The Cavalier women (6-0) defeated No. 10 Louisville (1-4), 224-146, and Princeton (2-2), 302-68, while the Cavalier men (5-1) topped the Tigers (1-2), 255-109, but fell to the No. 17 Cardinals (2-3), 197.5-166.5.
“We finished the two-day competition well against Louisville and Princeton” head coach Todd DeSorbo said. “The women picked up this morning where they left off the last two sessions, yesterday, with some great performances. We are in a really good place. The hard work and fast training
“As for the men, they had a great competition against a tough Louisville team. We started the competition down 32 points with our divers not being able to compete this weekend due to some health issues, but our men outswam them (Louisville) over the course of the three sessions. Both Louisville and our men provided some great races. It great to see our guys fight and battle and carry themselves like champions. I told them in a pre-meet conversation, you have to act like champions before you become champions, and they fought like champions today, which that was good to see.”
Virginia won four individual events and two relays on the final day of competition. Freshman Emma Seiberlich (Audubon, Pa.) won the women’s 200-yard backstroke with an NCAA “B” Standard time of 1:55.99, while senior Jennifer Marrkand (Westford, Mass.) won the women’s 200-yard butterfly with a time of 1:57.28.

The Cavaliers swept the final event of the meet, the 400-yard freestyle relay. The women’s team of sophomore Morgan Hill (Olney, Md.), freshman Anna Pang (SINGAPORE), junior Eryn Eddy (Loveland, Colo.) and senior Caitlin Cooper (Atlanta, Ga.), respectively, recorded a time of 3:16.82, for an AFC pool record.
