Virginia ended the meet with 1,308.5 points, followed by North Carolina's 1,255, Virginia Tech at 1,018, Louisville at 918, and NC State at 874 to round out the top five. Here's a PDF of the final results.

"I am extremely proud of the way our women performed tonight," UVA head coach Augie Busch said. "We knew it was going to take a lot to defeat teams who were performing at a high level like North Carolina.
