The championship weekend added to a stellar calendar year for UVA Athletics. At one point in October, the Cavalier men’s and women’s soccer teams were simultaneously ranked No. 1 for the first time in school history.
UVA’s men’s basketball and lacrosse teams both captured national titles this year, bringing the University’s total to 27 across all sports. Several other squads have made deep postseason runs, including the football team’s first-ever berth in the Capital One Orange Bowl coming up Dec. 30.
