Rowing Sweeps Races, Wins 5th Consecutive ACC Title

Mark Nolan

The Virginia rowing team won all four grand finals by open water to take their fifth consecutive ACC Championship and 14th of the 15 titles all time

Notre Dame won the last 10 Big East titles in women's rowing. But now they're in the ACC. And just like their men's tennis team, they're learning that things are a little different in the All-Cavalier Conference.

Virginia's boats won all four grand finals this morning in Clemson, S.C. at the 2014 ACC Rowing Championships to win their fifth consecutive title and 14th of the 15 titles in the history of ACC rowing. Yes, that's right. Virginia owns ACC Rowing.

Today's wins included the first-ever Third Varsity Eight race in ACC Rowing history. Virginia won that race by multiple boat lengths of open water, something that would be a theme throughout the day's events.

Notre Dame finished second in three of the four grand finals - excluding the Second Varsity Eight, where they were edged by Syracuse.

The sweep gave the Cavaliers 80 total points, solidly in the lead over second place Notre Dame, who finished with 67 points.

Up next for Virginia is the NCAA Championships, which start on Friday, May 30th. Race times are still to be determined.
