Virginia men's swimming has done it again. For the fifth straight time, and the 13th time in the past 14 years, the Cavaliers can call themselves the ACC Champions after a hard fought week that came down to the wire in the final event.

Virginia went into the final event, the 400 freestyle relay, with just a 22-point lead over Virginia Tech, but clinched the championship with a third place finish, to Virginia Tech's eighth. The Hoos finished with 626.5 points, just ahead of Virginia Tech's 594.5. North Carolina came in third with 564, and Florida State rounded out the top four with 542 points.

The Hoos, though without any one particular standout swimmer, found three gold medals this week behind the strong swimming of David Karasek, who had two individual first-place finishes and a third with the 800 freestyle relay team. Virginia had twelve total podium finishes.

The men's NCAA Championships will be March 22-24 at Federal Way, Washington.
