The Cavaliers finished the regular season undefeated in dual competition with a 10-0 overall record and 5-0 ACC record. Virginia defeated defending ACC champion NC State in addition to topping Duke, Louisville, Virginia Tech and North Carolina.
Senior Jennifer Marrkand (Westford, Mass.) and freshman Emma Seiberlich (Audubon, Pa.) pace the ACC in the 200-yard butterfly and 200-yard backstroke, respectively. Marrkand captured an NCAA "A" standard time of 1:53.55, while Seiberlich recorded a time of 1:53.45. Both times were captured at the UGA Fall Invitational.
Additionally, Virginia ranks second in the conference in four events. Marrkand holds the second-fastest time in the ACC in the 500-yard freestyle with a time of 4:39.52 and in the 200-yard individual medley with a time of 1:56.42. Sophomore Morgan Hill (Olney, Md.) recorded a time of 1:44.81 in the 200-yard freestyle, while senior Caitlin Cooper's (Atlanta, Ga.) performance in the 50-yard freestyle enters as the second-fastest time in the event.
Virginia set four school records during the season as junior diver Kylie Towbin (New Canaan, Conn.) set a new standard in the 3-meter dive with a score of 355.05 and the platform with a score of 270.05. Cooper was the first UVA female swimmer to break 22 seconds in the 50-yard freestyle, recording a time of 21.86. The Cavaliers set a school record in the 400-yard freestyle relay with Hill, Cooper, freshman Anna Pang (SINGAPORE) and senior Laine Reed (Austin, Texas), respectively, capturing a time of 3:12.06.
