Louisville and Virginia won three events apiece as five records were broken on Friday night at the 2016 ACC Women's Swimming & Diving Championship, held at the Greensboro Aquatic Center.
The Cavaliers maintained their lead in the team race with a three-day total of 897.5 points. NC State sits in second with 807, followed by North Carolina with 733 and Louisville with 707 after three days of competition.
It's a great honor," said Louisville coach Arthur Albiero on the record-setting victories. "It always goes back to preparation. This group especially has done a phenomenal job preparing. We had a breakthrough year last year and I think what I admire the most about them is that they are hungry for more and it showed in the preparation all year. For us to be in the conversation and to be very fortunate to win a few races tonight is something that we don't take for granted at all. We are very proud and very honored."
