GREENSBORO, N.C.—The Atlantic Coast Conference will be represented by 38 student-athletes who earned invitations to this weekend’s NCAA Women’s Swimming & Diving Championship, held from Thursday-Saturday, March 18-20 at the Boilermaker Aquatics Center on the campus of host Purdue University in West Lafayette, Ind. The ACC’s 38 performers are representing seven conference teams and garnered an invite in 99 events.

The ACC’s representation combined for 29 All-ACC performances at the recently concluded 2010 ACC Women’s Swimming & Diving Championship, in which Virginia won its third consecutive and eighth overall conference championship.

The Cavaliers lead all women squads with 16 invitations and four competing relay teams, and are followed by North Carolina, which finished second at the conference championship, with seven individuals and two relay teams. Maryland received five invitations and was followed by Virginia Tech with four invitations and one relay team. Rounding out the ACC representatives are Florida State with three, Duke with two, and Clemson with one.

Duke (33rd, 14 points), Virginia Tech (34th, 13.5 points), Clemson (43rd, four points), and Maryland (T44th, three points) finished among the top-50 teams.
