Day three of the 2016 Women’s ACC Swimming and Diving Championships started off strong. Virginia’s Courtney Bartholomew broke her own ACC meet record set last year in the 100 back, and expect to see much faster times posted tonight.

North Carolina showed their impressive depth this morning, qualifying 18 swimmers to swim in finals as they look to improve upon their current fourth-place standing.
