The No. 6 Cavalier women come into the meet as the highest-ranked team in the region, ahead of No. 8 NC State, No. 22 William & Mary and No. 28 North Carolina. UVA won the ACC Championship in its last meet Oct. 30 in Tallahassee, Fla.

The No. 12 Virginia men are one of five teams nationally ranked, including No. 10 NC State, No. 13 Furman, No. 18 Virginia Tech and No. 26 Eastern Kentucky.

Friday’s meet marks the fifth collegiate championship event on the course as it also hosted the 2006, 2007 and 2014 ACC Championships as well as the 2013 NCAA Southeast Regional. This is the first of three-consecutive years Panorama Farms will host the regional.
