CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Virginia wrestling team begins the postseason on Saturday (March 4) when it competes at the ACC Championships hosted by defending champion N.C. State at Reynolds Coliseum.
The Cavaliers will be wrestling for the program’s sixth ACC team championship in program history, while several wrestlers are in contention for an individual championship, including redshirt senior George DiCamillo (Highland Heights, Ohio) who looks to become the first four-time ACC Champion in Virginia history.
All bouts of the Championship will be streamed live on ACC Network Extra, which is available through the WatchESPN App. Shawn Kenney and Dean Linke are handling the play-by-play, with former Virginia All-American Tim Foley joining Rock Harrison in providing expert analysis. During the preliminary rounds the action will be streamed live from both mats, moving to one mat for the finals on Saturday evening. Links for broadcast are available at VirginiaSports.com.
Tickets at the door are priced at $7 for adults, $5 for youth (17 and under); children aged two and under are admitted free of charge. ACC students with valid IDs are also admitted free.

NCAA Bids On The Line In Raleigh
The championships serve as the automatic qualifier to the NCAA Championships. The ACC has been allotted 29 automatic qualifiers, down from 31 after injuries forced two wrestlers to withdraw from the ACC Championships; the breakdown by weight class: 125: 3, 133: 2, 141: 3, 149: 3, 157: 4, 165: 2, 174: 3, 184: 2, 197: 2, 285: 5. To earn the automatic qualifier, each wrestler must finish a certain place or higher at the conference championships (e.g., place in top three at 125 pounds).
DiCamillo Looks For Fourth ACC Championship
Redshirt senior George DiCamillo is one of only seven UVA wrestlers to win three ACC titles in a career (2013, 2015, 2016). After winning the previous three at 133 pounds, DiCamillo seeks his fourth ACC Championship at 141 pounds. DiCamillo is the No. 2 seed at 141 pounds after posting a 4-1 record in ACC duals. His only loss came to top-seeded Kevin Jack. Only three wrestlers have won four ACC titles at two different weights, but two of those three have been wrestlers moving up from 133 to 141.
Virginia In The ACC Championships
UVA has won five ACC Championships - 1974, 1975, 1977, 2010 and 2015. Virginia finished second at the 2012 and 2013 ACC Championships. The Cavaliers have won the ACC Championship or finished within 10 points of the champion in six of the last nine years. Virginia has also finished in the top 3 in 8 of the last 9 ACC Championships.
