Bring Your ‘A’ Stroke

Stroke

NC State, Virginia and Notre Dame have brought their ‘A’ stroke to conference swimming and diving. The Wolfpack, Cavaliers and Irish all have unblemished ACC records going into the weekend. How is the rest of the ACC doing?  To answer that question all you need to do is take a look at the latest CSCAA Top 25.

A total of fourteen conference teams lay claim to a place in both polls. Five of those teams were in the receiving votes category last week. An additional team is just one spot away from joining the Top 25.

The loss of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge hasn’t seemed to have fazed how conference teams rank. Two men’s teams are in the top 10 while three women’s teams are included in that top tier.

Sports seasons are here and gone quickly. There’s no exception with swimming and diving as the schedule packs a lot into a very narrow window. With that in mind it’s never too early to bring up the ACC Swimming and Diving Championships.
