Admission to Virginia swimming and diving meets is free to the public.

There will be a few metered spaces available at the AFC and free parking is available at Slaughter Recreation Center and the parking lot closest to the West Gate at Scott Stadium. Spaces designated for those individuals in possession of a disabled parking permit are located off Alderman Road on the west side of the Aquatic and Fitness Center.
Last time out, the Cavaliers swept Wisconsin and Virginia Tech Jan. 25-26 at the AFC. On the women’s side, Virginia defeated Virginia Tech, 214-151, and Wisconsin, 182-176. The Cavalier men were victorious against the Hokies, 202.5-167.5, and the Badgers, 185-163.
Juniors Jan Daniec (Mission Viejo, Calif.) and Caroline Kenney (Suwanee, Ga.) were named the ACC Male and Female Swimmers of the Week for their efforts. Daniec won the men’s 500 free, 1650 free and 400 IM, while Kenney captured the women’s 500 free, second in the 200 free and third in the 200 back.
