CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The Virginia men's and women's swimming and diving teams compete this weekend in a dual meet at Penn State. The Cavaliers and Nittany Lions begin the two-day event at 6 p.m. Friday and continue the meet at 11 a.m. Saturday from PSU's McCoy Natatorium.
Both the Cavalier men's and women's teams are coming off dual meet victories at home over Kentucky two weeks ago. Junior Matt McLean and freshman Lauren Perdue were each tabbed the ACC Performer of the Week for their efforts over the Wildcats.
McLean won both the 200 and 500 freestyle events, clocking a mark of 1:38.08 in the 200, which qualified for the national "B" cut. He also won the 500 in 4:26.48, the fastest time in the ACC this season, for another qualifying "B" cut. Perdue won the 50, 100 and 200 freestyle events for the second consecutive meet. The Greenville, N.C., recorded a "B" qualifying time of 1:48.39 in the 200 and holds the top ACC time in each event so far this season.
Penn State swam three weeks ago at Virginia Tech with both the men's and women's squads dropping the meet to the Hokies (184-116 men, 160-140 women) in Blacksburg.
Penn State freshman Amy Modglin had three wins against the Hokies, claiming first-place honors in the 100 back, 200 back and 200 IM. Teammate Lyndsey Smith took both the 100 and 200 breaststroke events. For the men, Basil Kaaki (100 fly), Brian Alden (100 free) and Ted Walker (50 free) were among the winners.
Last year in Charlottesville, both the Cavalier squads defeated Penn State. The men earned a 228-120 victory and the women defeated the Lions 210-148.
