Virginia Opens 2013-14 Campaign at Navy Friday

The Virginia men’s and women’s swimming and diving programs open the 2013-14 season Friday afternoon (Oct. 25) at Navy in Annapolis, Md. The Cavalier women will also face Yale in addition to the Mids in a double-dual meet. Start time for the meet is 3 p.m.

Due to security restrictions in place, only vehicles with a Department of Defense sticker on them will be allowed to drive onto the grounds of the U.S. Naval Academy. All visitors are required to either park downtown and walk in through the Visitors Center and its security checkpoint at Gate One (located at the corner of King George St. and Randall St. in downtown Annapolis; for GPS purposes use 52 King George St., Annapolis, MD 21402), or else park at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium ($5 per vehicle) and ride the free shuttle bus to and from The Yard.

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.

The Virginia men went 8-1 last season, including a 162-124 victory last season in Charlottesville. UVa’s women went undefeated in dual-meet competition for the second-consecutive season last year (9-0) and defeated Navy, 168-118.

In last year’s meeting with Navy, Virginia posted the top marks in all 32 events contested. On the women’s side, the Cavaliers finished at least 1-2-3-4 in 11 events, while the men had at least the top three finishers in six events.
