The Cavaliers look to improve upon last year's finishes when the women were tied for fourth and the men were sixth. The Virginia women have won five titles, claiming the first five championship meets from 1983-87. The Cavalier men won their only title in 2009.
Six Cavaliers who earned All-ACC honors at last year's ACC Outdoor Championships are looking for more accolades this season. Jordan Lavender (Nashville, Tenn.), the reigning indoor and outdoor ACC 400m champion, is the top seed in the women's 400m this week. Vanessa Fabrizio (Denver, Colo.) looks to improve upon a second-place finish in the women's 800m last year and is seeded third. Vicky Fouhy (Buckinghamshire, England), the runner-up in the women's 1500m last year, is seeded fourth this year. Abbey Karin (Byfield, Mass.) was another Cavalier who was an ACC runner-up last year, placing second in the women's javelin. She is seeded seventh in the event this season. Thomas Porter (Fredericksburg, Va.) is seeded fifth in the men's 10000m after placing second in the event last year. Ryan Satchell(Central Islip, N.Y.), who finished second in the triple jump last year, is seeded second in the event this week.
Filip Mihaljevic (Livno, Bosnia and Herzegovina) is another individual title contender for the Cavaliers, entering as the top seed in the men's discus and the No. 2 seed in the men's shot put. Adam Visokay (Ruckersville, Va.) is seeded second in the men's 10000m and Dallas Rose(Pearland, Texas) is seeded third in the women's triple jump.
The Cavaliers will return to action May 9-10 as it hosts the Virginia Challenge, their final home meet of the season at Lannigan Field.
