The Cavalier women posted their second-consecutive fifth-place finish at the 2016 NCAA Championships. The fifth-place NCAA finishes are the highest in program history. Virginia also won its ninth-straight ACC Championship. Senior Leah Smith (Pittsburgh, Pa.) captured the NCAA title in the 500- and 1,650-yard freestyle and earned two Olympic medals in Rio over the summer, including gold in the 4x200-meter free relay. Senior Kaitlyn Jones (Newark, Del.) holds four UVA individual records, while fellow senior Laura Simon (Simmern, Germany) was the NCAA runner-up in the 200 breaststroke in 2015.
The Virginia men finished sixth at the 2016 ACC Championships and tied for 28th at the NCAA meet. Sophomore Sam Magnan (Bethlehem, Pa.) earned All-ACC honors in the 1,650 free, while fellow sophomore Zach Fong (Moorestown, N.J.) qualified for the NCAA Championships in his first year with the Cavaliers.
Pitt’s men and women both finished 10th at the ACC Championships in 2016. Virginia and Pitt last met in dual-meet action on Feb. 8, 2014. The Cavaliers swept, winning 189-103 on the women’s side and 179-112 on the men’s.
Next up, the Cavaliers will host Michigan and Penn State in a two-day double-dual meet Nov. 4-5.
