CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- The No. 14 Virginia men's swimming and diving team competes at the ACC Championships Monday through Thursday (Feb. 27 -- March 2) at the Georgia Tech Campus Recreation Center in Atlanta, Ga.
The ACC Network Extra will broadcast the finals on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Links and live results will be available through VirginiaSports.com. Competition begins with the 200-medly relay at 4 p.m. and the 800 freestyle relay at 5 p.m.
Diving action took place two weeks ago during the ACC Women's Swimming and Diving Championships. In men's diving, freshman Bryce Shelton (Vienna, Va.) finished sixth in the platform with a score of 325.85, 11th on the one-meter with a score of 289.80 and 30th on the three-meter with a score of 258.85.
Fellow freshman Samson Miller (Fairfax, Va.) placed 26th in the one-meter with a score of 254.80. He finished 27th on the three-meter with a score of 270.35 and 27th on the platform with a score of 191.95.
The Cavaliers went 5-2 in dual meets this season, including a 4-1 mark in ACC competition with wins over Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech, Duke and North Carolina.
Virginia finished sixth at the 2016 ACC Championships. Sophomore Sam Magnan (Bethlehem, Pa.) finished third in the 1,650-yard freestyle a year ago, while sophomore Zach Fong (Moorestown, N.J.) finished fourth in the 200-yard fly. Virginia also finished third in the 800-yard freestyle relay last season.
The meet will also signify the men's swimming and diving matchup between Virginia and Virginia Tech in the Commonwealth Clash, sponsored by Virginia529, the official college savings plan of University of Virginia Athletics. There is one point at stake in the Virginia529 Commonwealth Clash, the point rivalry series between UVA and Virginia Tech. The school that finishes higher in the meet will receive a point in the competition. Learn more about Virginia529 and this competition at thecommonwealthclash.com.
