Todd DeSorbo & Co Bring New, But Carry on Old Traditions with UVA (Video)

It’s the holidays, which marks halfway through the NCAA season. This also marks 4 months that Head Coach Todd DeSorbo and his staff have led the UVA cavaliers, and SwimSwam was able to check in with them to see how things were going in Charlottesville.

Both DeSorbo and Associate Head Coach Tyler Fenwick spoke about how well the team has come together. Keeping emphasis’ on team camaraderie and expecting the unexpected, it seems the transition is going well. Senior Caitlin Cooper and freshman Emma Seiberlich agreed with the coaches’ assessment; early in the season, the team has a new energy and motivation about it.

Earlier this month, Virginia competed at the Georgia Invite, where their women placed 4th and men placed 5th. Look for the cavaliers to have duals in January with conference opponents Virginia Tech, UNC, and DeSorbo’s old stomping grounds, NC State, before gearing up for ACC’s.
