CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.–The Virginia men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams will travel to Tobacco Road this weekend to face Duke on Friday (Jan. 24) and North Carolina on Saturday (Jan. 25). Action on Friday against the Blue Devils begins at 5 p.m. and the meet against the Tar Heels is scheduled for a noon start on Saturday.

Last weekend, the No. 9 Virginia women defeated Virginia Tech (245-125), Wisconsin (225-139) and Miami (266-93) to improve to 7-1 on the season, while the No. 20 Cavalier men took down Harvard (225.5-137.5) and Wisconsin (240-127), but fell to Virginia Tech (217-153) to move to 4-3 on the campaign.

Freshman Leah Smith (Pittsburgh, Pa.) was named the ACC Female Swimmer of the Week after picking up three individual wins, including a 37-second victory in the 1,650 free.

Other multiple-event winners included senior Parker Camp (Brentwood, Tenn.) in the men’s 200 free and 200 IM, junior Ellen Williamson (Ft. Mitchell, Ky.) in the women’s 200 fly and 200 IM and sophomore Courtney Bartholomew (Holland, Mich.) in the women’s 100 and 200 back.

Last season against Duke, the Cavalier women picked up a 152-122 win and the UVa men were victorious, 153-140, on Jan. 20, 2013 in Charlottesville.

A day before, Virginia swept the Tar Heels, with the men winning, 194-106, and the women posting a 169-131 victory.

North Carolina’s women are ranked No. 7 in the latest CSCAA national poll, while the Tar Heel men are tabbed No. 16.

The Cavaliers return to action next weekend when they travel to NC State on Feb. 1 at 3 p.m.
