The men’s and women’s swimming teams each notched their fourth straight ACC championships this spring, and Matt McLean (Col ’11) went on to win the NCAA championship in the 500-meter freestyle event. This was the first time since 1996 that one school swept both ACC titles in four consecutive seasons.
The Virginia Sports Hall of Fame named Paige Selenski (Col ’12), a forward on UVA’s field hockey team, the 2011 Female College Athlete of the Year. Selenski led the Cavaliers with 27 goals, including seven game-winners, and was named first-team All-American this past season.
Also, Anthony Kostelac (Col ’14), undefeated in the indoor 800 meters, was voted the 2011 ACC Men’s Indoor Track and Field Freshman of the Year.
The UVA men’s tennis team, ranked No. 1 in the nation, defeated No. 15 Georgia Tech on April 16 to complete its fifth consecutive undefeated ACC regular season.
The win gave the Cavaliers the No. 1 seed in the ACC Tournament, which began April 22.
“This was a good win over a very good Georgia Tech team,” said head coach Brian Boland.
In other honors, Alex Domijan (Col ’14) was named the Most Outstanding Player of the 2011 ITA National Team Indoor Championships in February.
