CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.—The No. 8 Virginia women’s swimming and diving team looks to claim a 10th-consecutive ACC Championship starting Monday (Feb. 13-16) at the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center in Atlanta.

The Cavaliers captured the 2016 ACC title with 1,332.5 points, ahead of NC State (1,178), North Carolina (1,080) and Louisville (1,059.5). Virginia won two relays and eight individual events. Then-senior Courtney Bartholomew (Holland, Mich.) swept the backstroke events for the fourth-consecutive season and also won the 200 IM, while current senior Leah Smith (Pittsburgh, Pa.) captured the 500 and 1,650 freestyle events for the third-consecutive year.
Smith is currently ranked No. 2 in the country in the 500 free and No. 9 in the 200 free. Fellow senior Laura Simon (Simmern, Germany) is third in both the 100 and 200 breast. Senior Kaitlyn Jones (Newark, Del.) is No. 2 in the 200 butterfly, No. 4 in the 200 IM and No. 10 in the 400 IM, while junior Jennifer Marrkand (Westford, Mass.) is third in the 200 fly and sixth in the 200 IM.
The action begins Wednesday with the women’s 1-meter prelims at 10 a.m., the men’s 3-meter prelims at 2 p.m. and the finals of both diving events along with the 200 medley relay and the 800 free relay starting at 4 p.m.
