TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- No. 4 seed Virginia picked up victory number two in the Atlantic Coast Conference Softball Tournament with a 2-1 upset over top-seeded North Carolina this evening at Lady Seminole Field. Virginia is now 37-26 while UNC falls to 30-19.

Offensively for the Tar Heels, catcher Carrie Bates was 2-for-2, including a double, and drove in UNC's lone run.

Virginia will play Florida State tomorrow at 5 p.m. while North Carolina will play a 7 p.m. contest vs. the winner of Georgia Tech/Maryland, who play at 3 p.m.
