The meet, which will be UVa’s first under first-year head coach Augie Busch, will be contested in 25 meters, as opposed to the 25 yards that will be seen in the rest of the Cavaliers’ meets this season. Live results will be available and linked through VirginiaSports.com.
“We are excited to swim against some great competition this weekend,” said NC State head coach Braden Holloway. “It’s been a long time since NC State has been in Tallahassee. The meet is going to be outdoors, so I think the team is excited for a change in scenery.”

Hanna House of the Carmel Swim Club is staying closer to home than her initial commitment and going to Notre Dame instead of Virginia.
Notre Dame has taken two class of 2014 swimmers from two different swim clubs on Long Island.

“After an adventurous ride to Blacksburg, we had an up and down battle today with the Hokies,” said head coach Braden Holloway. “The ladies’ victory was a total team effort and it was great for them. For the guys, it was a rough day. Virginia Tech was ready for us and did a good job. The guys are going to have to be better in order to have success at this level.”
Virginia Tech, on the strength of some big dual meet wins, have started to put together a solid recruiting class.
