Virginia leads, but only by 28 over UNC after two days of women’s ACC Championships

Day 2 finals recap

Day 2 prelims recap

6 Big Things from Day 2

Two of four days are down at the 2015 women’s ACC Championships, and the Virginia Cavalier women find themselves in a familiar place: atop the point standings.

But UVA won’t be able to rest easy just yet, as the North Carolina Tar Heels are only 28 points back after coming through big on the sprint free events.

UNC loaded 3 swimmers into the 50 free’s A final, and also took second in the 200 free relay to give Virginia an early run, as those two programs have started to tear away from the field so far.

A big sprinting night from NC State has that red-hot program leading the next tier with 383 points. Louisville is hot on their tail, though, with 369 after winning the school’s first title in its new conference, courtesy of Tanja Kylliainen. Also in the hunt is Virginia Tech, who have been great on the diving boards early and sit at 342.

Tomorrow should be a strong day for the Cavaliers, with probably their best relay, the 400 medley, closing things off. It’ll take another monster effort for UNC to keep pace, but the Heels are talented too, and have defending 200 free champ Danielle Siverling waiting in the wings to defend her title against Virginia’s Leah Smith.

UVa women clearly not rested among their NCAA fall qualifiers. This team will be top 5 at NCAAs and will likely win at least one relay.

200 Medley relay seems to be the only result available on the Live Results link. Is this the same for everyone else?

contacted GT aquatic staff for non-updating live results. They responded right back that they are working on the problem and should have it fixed within the hour.
