"To take a ninth conference title is huge," she said. "It just shows the heart and deter- mination of our team, and the goal to go out there and get them. You can't ask for more than that." The Cavaliers won 10 events at the ACC Championships, including the 800 free- style relay and the 400 medley relay.
