UVA on Winning 11 of 18 Events: “Clearly there’s still room for us to get even better”

2022 NCAA DIVISION I WOMEN’S SWIMMING AND DIVING CHAMPIONSHIPS

Reported by Yanyan Li.

The Virginia women have done it again, defending their 2021 title by winning the 2022 NCAA Division I Women’s Swimming And Diving Championships by 145.5 points, and scoring a total of 551.5 points. This was an improvement from their finish last year, where they scored 491 points and beat runner-up NC State by 137 points.

With Tuggle, Skirboll, and Weber, we may see all events won by the Cavs next year! Also Cavan Gormsen in 2023???

Zoe Skirboll and Claire Tuggle remind me of those two party popular people that got sucked into swim at a young age and never had a say. Elite age group swimmers, but now that they aren’t dropping time, they just don’t know how to quit.

You hear kids? If you’re not dropping time, just give up!

McNeil is also returning. It would be difficult for any team to repeat eleven wins with the current talent level of women’s swimming.

Ok here me out:

Douglass drops the 50 for the 2IM
A Walsh drops the 2IM for the 200 fr
G Walsh wins the 100 bk
Weyant wins the distance events
Tiltman has a breakout year and wins the 200 bk
They win the 800 fr relay
They recruit some divers

UVA wins every event at NCAAs 😤

Ah yes, Alex Walsh doing the 4IM 2FR double. No flaws in that plan.
