snapshot PHOTO FINISH The Virginia women's cross country team captured its first ACC championship since 1982 at Apalachee Regional Park Oct. 30 in Tallahassee, Fla. It marked the third league crown in program history for UVA, which won back-to- back titles in 1981 and 1982. The Cavaliers finished with 71 points to edge NC State (75). The four-point margin is tied for the second small- est in ACC Championships history (NC State defeated Wake Forest by three points in 1992 and North Carolina defeated NC State by four points in 2003). Going into the final 1,000 meters of the 6,000-meter race, NC State led UVA 58-73, but the Cavaliers outpaced the Wolfpack to pull out the victory. "The most impressive thing about that race was that we were down for the first 5,000 meters, and it is a testament to how hard these ladies have been working," UVA director of track and field/cross country Bryan Fetzer said. "That was amazing. … The last team that won [in 1982], won the NCAA championship, so that puts this group in a very good standing." PHOTO COURTESY UVA
